I know a lot of the first ones are more for kids, but sometimes you just have to take a step back from reality.
And if you can survive it. Try reading The Scarlet Letter.

To Kill A Mockingbird
Riding The Blues (an awesome horse book!)
The Da Vince Code by Dan Brown
Angels And Demons by Dan Brown
Deception Point by Dan Brown
Digital Fortress by Dan Brown
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
Monday Mourning by Kathy Reichs and pretty much anything else by her.
That's most of my favourite books =P Hope you find something you enjoy there.
Here are some authors that I like write good books:
Nicholas Evans (wrote the Horse Whisperer)
(these 3 authors above write medical whodunits)
Paulo Coelho... his books are very interesting and refereshing. Pretty philosophical deliberation about deep issues like meaning of life, put in a concrete stories.
Their are a lot of good books I know. Read all of the Alex Hawke Series Books By Ted Bell. They are a adult read and you can't stop reading the book once you start. I don't do romance though sorry. But try those books you will really enjoy it.
