 A Song of Fire and Ice Series George R.R. Martin
This is by far my favorite series so far because it's interesting and you are never able to tell what's going to happen next. It puts me on edge every time I read them! The TV show is just as good and even better than how I pictured the images in my head. I would recommend this to anyone.
 Matter of HonorJeffery Archer
I was actually asked to read this in high school. When I started it, I ended up finishing it in three days, tops. I absolutely love this book. It kind of has a James Bond feel to it, lots of action and suspense. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes reading about action, conspiracy and adventure.
 My Name is MemoryAnn Brashares
I love this book as well. I happen to come across it in a book store and decided to try it out. I was very happy with it as it's different from all other love stories. Sadly, it was suppose to be a trilogy but the other two books were not published thanks to lack of sales for the first book. However, anyone who is a true romantic at heart would love this book probably as much as I do.
1. The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. You may get an inkling of how much this book means to me by the fact that my second son's name is Bryce I first read this book in high school and it really resonated with me and I have read it every few years ever since. When I was teaching, I had my students read it as well and many of them had a similar reaction It was difficult to get college freshman interested in anything but this book was a hit with every class
2) Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I think the morality and ethical dilemmas explored in this novel as well as Raskolnikov's theories on the "worth" of one set of people over others along with his transformation are good conversations for anyone to have.
3) The Awakening by Kate Chopin. The struggles of Edna Pontellier to find her "self" and her place in a world she doesn't fit in are a good starting point for some serious discussions about where we, as women, came from, where we are, and where the world needs to go. I think in light of recent legislation here in the US, Edna's struggles are even more relevant than they were a few years ago.
