I see your in the fiction-fantasy side with some of the books you've read. I'd recommend the classics like Jane Austen or Alexandre Dumas. They're really good novelist and somehow by reading the books they wrote, you could open more doors for taste since they offer various approach and storylines. :) I loved reading the age old The Count of Monte Cristo. You can also try Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice of Sense and Sensibility.

Have you read anything by stephenie Meyer? She's a young adult fantasy writer, so it seems like she would be right up your alley. I don't know how old you are, but i'm 25 and I still enjoy her books. I'd also suggest JRR Tolkein books. Start with The Hobbit and work your way from there.

i would recommend, the five people you meet in heaven by mitch albom. i love that book, the story is so good that you wanna reflect on what's happening in your life, look back on good old memories, and thank the Creator for every small things you have. it's not boring at all

My favorite books are written by Dan Brown: The da vinci code, angels and demons, The code of Tankado, deception point. I also like books by Jan Guliou: Le Coq Rouse. You should also read: The Hobbit, it's actually the first book of lord of the rings, but it's not in the thrilogy. It's a book about the hobbits it's great.

There are a few books I would love to recommend to you! One is called Contest, by Matthew Reilly. It is a very good thriller! It has a lot of pages and I finsihed it in 2 days. I just couldnt put it down! Another is Riptide by Catherine Coulter. I loved this book, it is very suspenseful and well written. It also had a couple of funny parts that made me laugh really hard. But if you want a good author to check out I def. recommend Stephen King. Here are a few of my faves from him; The Girl Who Loved Time Gordon, Misery, Might Shift, Everythings Eventual, Wolves of the Calla. If you want any descriptions on the plots of these books PLEASE don't hesitate to ask! I would love to tell you! Happy reading! :)

For your generation it will be hard to top the excitement and to find a book that will capture your imagination like the Harry Potter books. It truly was a cultural phenomenon that you all shared. For people my age reading was much more personal and individualistic. I can just recommend that you try the classics. Do not try to compare them to Harry Potter. You will have to have to read them for what they offer. Cruise the classic Lit. paperback section of a book store. Maybe try poetry or classic mysteries. Some of my favorites( Authors): Dickens,Jane Austen,Jack London,Robert Frost(Poetry)Arthur C Clarke (science fict), Jules Verne. Try some of the books on the adventures of King Arthur. Henry James or Edgar Allen Poe are great reads as well. Try reading books about famous people throughout history. There is a lot of good stuff there.

Jane Austen's novel are great also especially the "Price and Prejudice" if you want to read love stories... Or Sydney Sheldon's novels are also a must read novels...

From the genre you seem to prefer, I recommend the Septimus Heap books by Angie Sage, "Magik, "Flyte" and "Physik" (although I've not read the last one). How about reading Lord of the Rings, given that you like the movies? Not that I've ever managed to get through it. In the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre, I very much like Ray Bradbury's novels. A bit old school,perhaps, but wonderful all the same.

It's very hard to pick books for another person. Each individual has such different tastes, and mine do not coincide with those that you mention. The only thing I have read out of your list is "Romeo and Juliet." However, there are lots of great writers, and as many people have mentioned, some of the best are the classics. I recommend anything by Mark Twain, "The Three Muskateers," mytery books by Sir Arthur Connan Dolye (inventor of Sherlock Holmes) or Agatha Christie. If I knew your age (whether you are an adult or a teen, it would be easier to recommend more). Good luck finding something you like. You can always get good recommendations from the folks who work in bookstores and from librarians.
