Atonement by Ian McEwan is great. And Kafka on the shore by Takashi Murakami.

Atonement blew me away, I'd highly recommend it too.

I recently read "Norwegian Wood" by Murakami, a friend had given it to me, and I was surprised how much I liked it. It made me laugh out loud several times.

I'd recommend anything by Kazuo Ishiguro: "The Remains of the Day", "Never Let Me Go", "When We Were Orphans".

Atonement was good, but I highly recommend the book to, not the movie. :P

Karin Slaugther's books. Her writing is amazing :) Read 2 of her books, and they are the best I've read. Look forward to the rest!

I recommend Half of a yellow sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It's about the Biafran war. It's really something people should read.

I totally reccomend the Foundation series, written by Isaac Assimov. They're sci-fi, futuristic novels.
Also, I reccomend 1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell.
If you want to read somthing thats good, mysterious and macabre, try reading Edgar Allan Poe
If you want to read horror, try H.P. Lovecraft (He created Cthulhu)
Another good book is The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka.
And of course, the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy by Tolkien!

Anything by Chuck Palahniuk (ex: Fight Club, Choke), although his books are on the mature side.

Check out the Game of Thrones series too, by George R.R. Martin.


My default recommendations, though, are:
1984
The Outsiders
The Hobbit
Go Ask Alice
Tweak
Catcher In The Rye
Perks Of Being A Wallflower

Columbine by Dave Cullen

Truly magical, the way he wrote about the entire incident was chilling but intriguing. I was gripped and personally loved the interviews he conducted to. You gain a new perspective on the media and on the two boys.

i really enjoyed the Fountainhead by Ayn Rand although people find her ideas of selfishness freakin' debatable, however i don't have much thought on that issue. just, im pretty much head over heels for Howard Roark. and even some love for his lover :)

Check out the Game of Thrones series too, by George R.R. Martin.

Tweak
