I recommend Hunger Games, all three of them :)

You just wasted 5 seconds of your life reading this message, you will now think about something you could have done for these 5 seconds instead of reading this useless message that now made you waste 10 seconds of your life.

Hunger Games is fantastic, try the Darren Shan series, there are amazing. Especially "The Vampire Assistant", and "The Saga of Darren Shan", I think they're called. ^_^

Try Ender Games series.

A Song of Ice and Fire is a perfect book series, however, it is never to be read by the weak of heart.

What am I?

The Host is a great book, and NO it's not bad just because Stephenie Meyer wrote it. It is totally different from the Twilight series.

If you're a good reader, and can handle a lot of adult themes, then I'd also recommend the Song of Ice and Fire series. The first book is called A Game of Thrones (there are five of them currently).

Skulduggery Pleasant - An entire series. Comedic, a bit dark, bloody, action, Fantasy and romance all rolled into one big, smokeable lump.

The Wardstone Chronicles (for Americans, its The Last Apprentice) - Dark, Action and Horror.
Join the RPGuild. Be a lad. Do it for me and for your western freedoms. Lub u all.

The Stand (I would recommend the unabridged version being a fan and it being the first book of King's that I read).

And when you're finished there: the Dark Tower. You could follow this up then with Hitchhikers Guide. Maybe follow it up and be classy with Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Im a little unsure what to sugest as I dont know what genre you prefer. However, the 'Gone' books by Michael Grant are great books. At least in my eyes.

Idioticy isn't something negative. It makes every new day a whole new adventure! If you're an idiot, feel lucky! I love the internet because then I can sit and envy those idiots enjoying their everyday adventures!

Ummmm....
I hardly do books. I used to read a fair bit, but these are the most recent ones that I can recall touching

Lindsey Davis: the Falco series
David Gemmell: most of the Drenai and Rigante series
George R R Martin: his Game of Thrones series
Nietzsche: Also sprach Zarathustra

Honourable mentions: William Shakespeare, Nizar Qabbani, Martin Heidegger, JRR Tolkien, JJ Rousseau, Mario Puzo, Umberto Eco, GWF Hegel, .... damn, this list is too long!

The Hobbit. Read again if you already have, and read it in time for the movie.
That, or The Maze Runner is an OK book series.

Anna Karenina is probably one of the best books I've ever read, and I've read quite a lot of books
Every Christmas, I make sure I unwrap the Maggarg that I have in the fridge and cook it. He's so delecious and edible, if not a bit spicy. I can just feel the gastric juices digesting him in my belly as we speak. Mm, mm, mm, delicious.
