    My favorite book by far is White Oleander by Janet Fitch... way better than the movie so dont discredit it if you have already seen it. By favorite horror book is the Ruins by Scott Smith. Theres also desperation and the regulators by stephen king and intensity by Dean Koontz. Im not sure what genre you like the best but if you go to amazon.com and type in your favorite books they make suggestions for books like that and theres a section on what customers bought who also bought that book.
