If you like to read science fiction/fantasy, I would suggest Serpent's Shadow by Mercedes Lackey or Moon Called by Patricia Briggs. I enjoyed both books when I read them.

Another good author in the fantasy category is Terry Goodkind. I am in the middle of the Sword of Truth series. It is fantastic! The books are long (~800 pages each) but they will keep you wanting to come back for more! They should keep you busy for a while.

If you are looking for something light, quick, and hilarious, I recommend Janet Evanovich. She has a series with a character named Stephanie Plum. It takes place in New Jersey. Stephanie needs to pay her bills, so she because a bounty hunter for her cousin. She isnt very good at it and always seems to be running into problems! The first book is called "One for the Money." Book number 15 in the series is coming out this June. (Each of the books has the number in the title.) Enjoy your reading!

When I need something to read I pick up some old favorites: Patriot Games by Tom Clancy, The Last of the Breed by Louis L'amour, and The Client by John Grisham. They are all great and easy reads.

I read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury the other day. It was pretty good. It kept my attention and I read it in one night. I like 1984 by George Orwell. Invasion by Robin Cook. I liked Intensity by Dean Koontz. The Shining by Stephen King is scary. The "Deadly Sins" series by Lawrence Sanders. I guess I like older books better.

i found it while in aruba last fall. the breathtaker by alice blanchard. it's got a sticker on it that say's today's book club. quick view, when a police chief find's 3 mutilated corpses in a tornado ravaged farmhouse, his first thought is they where killed by flying debris. but as the book goes on he find's they were brutally murdered during the tornado, how and where does the killer know exactly where to strike before a tornado touch's " that house ". and your basic doc's and scientist's rolling around in the hay, bada boom.

My favorite author is Clive Cussler. I believe he has over 15 books that you could read. If you like action and adventure, he is the one to read. In fact, he influenced Clancy and others to write the same type of stuff. Give it a try. Start with "Raise the Titanic" and go from there. I also recommend Edgar Allan Poe's classic writings. I love the macabe of it all.

I dont know if i'l really hit your likes but i would like to suggest to some books that i have read and i found it very overwhelming. Just like you i am also looking for some books that can mold me. But i still got stuck here with one book my friend had given to me as a gift. Awkie, the first one, i want you to read "The Jester by James Patterson". I believe you have known James Patterson then, He is a famous writer and you'll definitely gonna love it too, just like mine. You'll gonna find cute jokes here! Try Sidney Sheldon books, he writes traggic love story, some of his stories are brutal or maybe not some at all. I only read his "Memories of Midnight and If Tomorrow Comes" and both are the best. You can also search about these recently known popular author, Paulo Coelho. I have read his "The Alchemist" and its very inspiring! You can also try this very unique story of him called "Eleven Minutes". And lastly, try the Twilight Zaga. The four books are pretty awesome too.
