Books by Dean Koontz. He is similar to Stephen King but less wordy and more interesting. His earlier works are better than the more current ones. Consider: Fear Nothering, Seize The Night, Strangers, Lightning and The Good Guy.
In general, books that make me think. Or books that are very well-written. I don't like autobiographies or biographies at all. Especially famous peoples'.
Here are some good ones:
1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell
Fatherland and Lustrum by Robert Harris
Crime and Punishment by the Russian dude
Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray
I've actually JUST written a hub with some of my favourite books, but on top of that, anything by Tom Clancy and The Lord of the Rings trilogy are up there.
I like the chicken soup for the soul because they have personal and real life experiences that i can always learn a lesson on, life changing and the stories are very inspiring as well.
Piece By Piece by Tori Amos is one of my favourite books for her influential and inspiring insights.
Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen and Crazy Love by Leslie Morgan Steiner are mindblowing memoirs.
Music, The Brain, and Ecstasy by Robert Jourdain is an exceptiionally intelligent read.
Written On The Body by Jeanette Winterson brings to light how we unconditionally love.
I also very much enjoy Stardust, a wonderful fantasy written by Neil Gaiman.
anything by stephen king, charles de lint, neil gaiman, and of course alice in wonderland

I'm a YA author, so my list gets pretty exhaustive of "favorite books" in the children's world. Among them? ALL of Tamora Pierce's work and Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. Give me a good girl adventure and I'm happy as a clam--and it's work that I'm still pretty...
