Any good books you recommend?

I'm always alone so my past time is reading. What are your favorite books that you might recommend someone like me?

I'm 23 so please don't tell me to read Twilight or Harry Potter...

    I am typically into chic lit, but recently started reading a series of mysteries by Diane Mott Davidson. They are culinary mysteries and the first in the series is called Catering to Nobody. It's a pretty good series so far, I'm on book 5.

    I suggest that you read anything by Jodi Picoult.

    She is an amazing author.

    Harvesting the Heart

    The Tenth Circle

    Plain Truth

    My Sister's Keeper

    I am the same age. I love Meg Cabot (Heather Wells & Queen of Babble, and tons of others), Sophie Kinsella's (Shopaholic [soon to be movie] & Remember Me), Jennifer Weiner (Good in Bed & Certain Girls) and Emily Giffin (Something Borrowed & Something Blue) books.They are all great authors!
