Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz? He's probably my favorite author! I like the weird thriller mystery novels he writes...I don't know how to describe them. I've never read Odd Thomas, even though the Odd series is his most famous ones. I recommend the Frankenstein revamps by him, they're all excellent.I read a lot, (mainly fantasy) and these are a few that I enjoyed
The Kingkiller Chronicles*
The Wheel of Time
The Stormlight Archive*
The Dresden Files**
Mistborn (the first, I haven't read the others yet)
The Lord of the Rings and any other Tolkien books
* Unfinished (not done being written)
**Unfinished, but worth starting now anyways
There are a ton of others that I will probably think of seconds after posting this, but these are some of my favorites.
As far as other books go, I really liked (most of) the Divergent series! So much better than the movies (of course)! I felt like the final book kind of went off tangent, since it was so much different than the others.
