The Otherland series is a huge investment of time. But so worth it.

@natetodamax: I'm half way through Metro 2033 and I have to admit it is everything you could possibly ask for from a book, lots of adventure :P And the translation is quiet good might I add.

Depends what you want. I'm almost through Metro 2033 and cannot recommend it ENOUGH! It is one of the best books I have read in quite some time. If you want something more fantasy focused, look into the Demontech series. It's a very uniquely written set of books, and a personal favorite.

In Cold Blood.  Phenomenal. 
The Dexter series is a lot of fun. 
The Road and No Country For Old Men are challenging reads, but very good if you can get through Cormac McCarthy's bizarre writing style.

Lullaby or Rant by Chuck Palahniuk (or anything else by him really, but those are my favs).  Tell-All came out today, waiting for it to get here.

If you're looking for an action-packed novel that's extremely well written and one of the best sci-fi novels ever made.. then definitely check out Armor by John Steakley.

Oh my god, I thought that was just me.  I have The Road and it's so hard to get through.  The subject matter is cool, but shit, his writing voice is damn near intolerable!

I'm currently reading A Fighter's Heart by Sam Sheridan. If fighting (as a sport) has ever interested you, this book is awesome. The writer starts off by pushing himself through a brutal Muay Thai camp in Thailand, then joins up with Pat Militich's MMA camp, then heads down to train with Brazilian Top Team in Brazil, Learn Tai Chi in New York, Boxing in Oakland, and generally gets hardcore training from the best people in the world. It's a really interesting look at the life of a professional fighter, regardless of discipline. Highly recommended.

The new Starcraft book looks pretty good. I've heard a few people like it. 
 
Obviously I don't know if you are into Starcraft Lore but if you are you might want to look into it.

Also the 'Tomorrow when the war began' series by John Marsden is always a good bet if you haven't had a look at those:

House of Leaves. It's literally straight-up insane!
 
Also, for more traditional craziness, Cell by Stephen King is a pretty nifty zombie apocalypse (with a whole lot of twists).

Yes, I'm not sure why he writes like that, but I can promise that it is very rewarding if you can make it all the way through.

I have been reading fantasy as well as a healthy dose of other genre's my entire life. I can say without a moment of hesitation that The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin is the best thing I or anyone else will ever read.  
 
The first book is titled: A Game of Thrones

No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July (collection of short stories). Also, anything by Jincy Willett.  
 
Edit: Also also, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. This book has a diagram of optimal settings for sliding across wooden floors in your socks.

I'm not even fucking being sarcastic about this. The first Twilight book is actually very entertaining. Corny, cheesy, ridiculous- yes, yes and yes. But it's still a very entertaining read.
