    Steven Brust's books about assassins. In order they are Taltos, Yendi, Dragon, Jhereg, Teckla, Phoenix, Athyra, Orca, and Issola. They can be read out of order and make perfect sense, though.

    Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson.

    The story of Arlene Fleet, who left a dark secret back in Alabama and ran away to Chicago after leaving high school ten years ago. When she left, she made a deal with God-with-a-big-G that she would be an exemplary human being: never lying, fornicating or returning to Alabama as long as God made sure that nobody ever found out what she'd done. But now she's under pressure to return for an important family party, not just from her relatives, but from her boyfriend Burr, too. As he's black, and many of her relatives are racist, Arlene has more than a few things to worry about as she makes the journey home to confront her past

    if you like some juicy stuff, like i do, try the book "the devil wears prada" or if ur looking for series, try the a-list series, tho if ur a bit younger, you might want 2 try the clique series. tho not every1 likes books like that. so let me see... if u like fantasy stuff, i know this sounds cliche but harry potter is really the best lol =)) or perhaps try twilight, i haven't read that one but everybody is like soo crazy about it so it's gotta be good, right?? if you're into romance, well, only good romance books are the classics, if u ask me. try something classy like pride & prejudice lol. if u like horror or thriller, the best way 2 go is, w/o a doubt, stephen king! start w/ "It". that's what i started w/ lol it was pretty damn scary! :)) also, if you like suspense & stuff books from dan brown is wonderful, especially "angels&demons". if u like historical books tho, i can't help u, these are the only ones i dont read, lol :)) hope i helped, it was kinda difficult as you didnt say what kind exactly you like!!

    I hear the Halo books are not bad. Tobias Buckell is writing or has written one of the books. Saw one of your questions was about Xbox and thought the Halo books may interest you.
