Saint - Ted Dekker
House - Ted Dekker/Frank Peretti

@Saint: similar to the Bourne series but with a supernatural side
@House: a kind of horror book that explores man's nature and spiritual decline

It is already on the list, and was in fact added by a blue post. Thanks though.

Speaking as a total bookworm, I'll throw down some titles that have really stood out to me as amazing reads, the type that I would read over and over again.

Mistborn trilogy-Brandon Sanderson
Hungry Cities Chronicles-Philip Reeve
Eon-Alison Goodman
Dresden Files-Jim Butcher

Those are the best books I've read over the past year or so.

Kushiel's Legacy (6 novels) by Jacqueline Carey

Starting with "Kushiel's Dart". Took a few chapters to get into the first but couldn't put them down after.

I'm surprised how much of that list I've read. I'll have to refer back to it for future reading lulls.

Best novel or series I've read recently was the Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. It's already on the list, though.

Was surprised to see Ted Dekker on there. Christian stuff isn't very mainstream.

Love Brave New World. Pass me another Lude.

I read Freedom by Jonathan Franzen a few months ago. Heartbreaking and oh-so-enlightening account of white, liberal American families. The prose is so well-written that you barely have to work for it. It just melts on the tongue.

Next on my reading list: Catch-22 and A Visit from the Goon Squad.

This isn't a novel, but I'm savoring (read, slowly reading) A People's History of the United States of America. That book will blow your hair back. What I'm taking from it so far is that we were never meant to be free. Life and liberty were a myth until people started what basically amounts to anarchy and subversion.

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski.

Nearly impossible to describe the structure of the novel, it keeps you thinking and guessing until the very end. Check the wikipedia page on it for a better description.
