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**
Odd Thomas
Mistborn (the first, I haven't read the others yet)
The Lord of the Rings and any other Tolkien books
Enders Game
* 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.
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. :)

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.

I Really liked reading "Gone With the Wind". It was a really good book! If your looking for a good Christian book I would recommend reading "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis.

Sooo many.

I'm reading 1 and 2 Samuel right now, and they might be becoming my fav. I love the story of David (and the story of Jacob).

Books to help you grow in your faith:
Mere Christianity (3 parts, 1st part is very dense, the rest is easier to read)
The Great Divorce (on Heaven and Hell, fantastic)
Blue Like Jazz
Velvet Elvis
Sex God (I wish the title was different. It's really about humanity)
Redeeming Love (Fiction based on the story of Hosea, which is about God's faithfulness to us even when we are unfaithful to him.)
The Shack (on the Trinity)
Captivating (on womanhood)

Fiction:
The Uglies Series (so good, good themes, cool tech)
Ender's Game (why I named my cat Ender, Ender Wiggin is so interesting. Kind yet deadly. Meow!)
Chronicles of Narnia (Aslan, he's not a safe lion, but he is good)
A Wrinkle in Time (I love trying to wrap my mind around the idea of time as a dimension)
Little House on the Prairie Series (refreshing)
Inheritance Cycle (impressively developed fantasy world)
Oliver Twist (Orphan Boy)
Treasure Island (Pirates. nuff said)
Harry Potter Series
Shadow Children Series
Hunger Games Series
Percy Jackson Series
Divergent
Swiss Family Robinson
Robinson Crusoe

I guess that's enough for now ;)

So many books that I wanted to recommend already taken
I don't think "The Compass" has been mentioned
It is about A guy who has a tragic event in his life and the journey he takes. Along the way you find out more about him, and what happened in his life. You also see how everything that he goes through and all who he meets, are leading him to a final destination. What that is or if he reaches it, you need to read to find out.
When I started reading it I thought it wasn't on God when done I wasn't so sure
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (NKJV)

I really enjoy Ted Dekker for Christian fiction.

Actually also really like the children's storybook bible. Very nicely written and beautiful illustrations.
