Default Guess the book title

Yeah, I got the originality... Fair warning, I'm totally hopeless at cryptic crosswords so I may not be very good at making up the clues myself. I predict this quiz will be finished by lunch time. Or possibly never.

1. This book stinks.
Perfume

2. Lessons in lust.

The Professor of Desire

3. Where the grass is green but the girl's ain't pretty.
Cities of the Plain

4. Wood smell, ass wheat.

The Name of the Rose

5. Familiar faces, familiar places. Not.
Stranger In A Strange Land

6. Hold on for good.
Never let me go

7. Where The Wild Things Are.
Wolf Hall

8. Where The Civil Things Aren't.
Animal Farm

9. Figments & Fictions.
Angels & Demons

10. Rip Van Winkle, P.I.
The Big Sleep

I can see why! #4 is really bugging me, for some reason I think I should be able to get somewhere with that...

Here's a bit of a punt, is #9 Tales of Mystery and Imagination?
