Can anyone recommend a few really good books to me? I like thriller/ suspense/ romance.. almost anything. I love Dean Koontz, Stephen King, all the greats. I'm a huge reader but I've read so many books that I'm having a hard time finding one of those GREAT ones that you can barely put down. I want one of those.

If you like Dean Koontz, I highly recommend trying John Saul if you haven't already. I used to read Dean Koontz and John Saul, but grew to like John Saul's writing style more. I much prefer his earlier books, like Second Child and The Creature. But his newer books are pretty good too! Happy Reading!

Hi Angel - Thanks for the best response! I really appreciate it. And let me know if you do try reading John Saul and what you think of it. :)

Would you want to try and go back to the classics? I'm also into Stephen King's novels, plus other contemporary authors like Ann Rice, Mitch Albom, etc. When I'm done with their books and I haven't found a new one yet, I switch to the classics. I've just finished reading Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott. I haven't had the time to read it before and I find it quite engaging. It also gives me a break from the current novels. Hope this will work for you too.

John Saul, The Perfect Nightmare, is a really good thriller, horror book. I read it this year, and I could not keep my hands off of the book. I was so desperate to see what would happen next..

if your at a point where you really need to find something important to read, something that will give something back to you, omething more than an engaging story or a smart plot, then i'd say the moment has come to pick up "crime and punishment" by Dostoevskji, or "anna karenina" by Tolstoj (this one has been considered the best novel ever written). you will find all there is to tell in those books, and they might become main columns of the way you see the world and people around you.

Have you ever tried literary fiction? Because they are the real thrillers. And so much, that you can read them several times. The genre fiction, whether thriller/suspense/romance are usually set on a same template, and you after a time get bored of them. You get bored of even what you haven't read as you know what it would contain. Just try the characters, their conflicts, their uniqueness. It would really thrill you.

If you love Stephen King, then you have probably already read Dreamcatcher. I fell in love with the book, and each of the characters. The book gave such great insight into every character's life and personality and talent. I almost felt that I knew each of the characters in real life.
