-Night Angel Trilogy (excellent books!)
-Godspeaker trilogy
-Water for Elephants (though it's graphic)
-any of Cormac McCarthy's
-a lot of Karen Miller's books are decent (she wrote the Godspeaker trilogy, above)

Those are just a few of the recent ones I've read..

Thoroughbred series by Johanna Campbell(I think the earlier ones are the best)
Percy Jackson and the Olympian series by Rick Riordan
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
The House of Night series by PC and Kirstin Cast
Jake, Reinvented
Black for Remembrance by Carlene Thompson
the Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix

and books by the authors Sarah Dessen
and books by the author Jodi Piccoult (sp?)

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.

I'll think of more later.

Yes, i love the Thoroughbred series. Unfortunately they dont sell it anymore in stores (in Alberta anyway...) which really sucks! I also agree with tempest that the earlier ones #1-22 are the best.

Here are some authors that I like write good books:

Nicholas Evans (wrote the Horse Whisperer)
Robin Cook
Michael Palmer
Tess Gerritsen
(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.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

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 cant stop reading the book once you start. I dont do romance though sorry. But try those books you will really enjoy it.
