The "Twilight" series by Stephenie Meyer.

OMFG do I love her books. I HIGHLYHIGHLY recommend them, even if you do not like vampire stories. Although I do enjoy reading this type of genre, what really hooked me was how the characters just seemed to come alive. Give it a try and, hopefully, I'm not the only one who thinks so ^^;

Sherlock Holmes (there's a compilation of all his stories, just look that up)by Sir Conan Doyle
All novels done by Agatha Christie. Mystery/thriller
Stars Shine Down by Sidney Sheldon, you'll literally go crazy as to who did the crime. Seriously.

I like the Kim Harrison "Hollows" series
Percy Johnson and the Olypians is also a great series
But the Forgotton Realms series was the first books without pictures that held the ADD at bay

If you like Sf books I strongly recommend Dune series.Is a series containing 6 volumes written by Frank Herbert.Is absolutely fantastic!Very deep and full of suspense.
I also recommend Isaac Asimov's books.
As for clasical literature,I recommend Dostoievski's "Crime and Punishement".Also heard Proust's famous "Dans la recherche du temps perdu" (hope i've written it well) is an amazing book but still didn't make time to read it.

I recommend "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coehlo (I think that's the author). My English Professor suggested the book to me and I really enjoyed it.

you might also like to try Patricia Cornwell's books - the Scarpetta series - (postmortem, all that remains, cruel and unusual, the body farm etc) about a forensic pathlogist/medical examiner. murder mysteries.

Not to mention notions to ecology. There are also 2 trilogies; House Trilogy and Butlerian Jyhad, even though they're definitely light reading when compared to original work, but If you ask me a LOT better when you need to introduce someone to Dune setting itself.

Speaking of which, you wouldn't happen to know anything similar to Dune when it comes to books? What I'm basically looking for is, I guess, interstellar political drama/novel... if such a thing even exists besides Dune.
