Summer Reading Suggestions?

I've spent the last six years reading nothing but old literature- the kind of book that the AP english lists will tell you to read, the kind of book that has been acclaimed as a masterpiece for multiple centuries- in short, nothing from this era.

I love literature, I love great writing, but to remain so narrow minded as to only read the "classics" would be rather ignorant, not to mention being borderline elitist. If you are still reading this, then I thank you. I've read some of Cormac Mcarthy's work, and I'm looking for just that sort of thing. Not the sort of book generally written for high school students. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Not only in the realm of literature/fiction, but if anyone knows some great sci-fi (orson scott Card is one of my favorites), drama, or poetry to be read that'd be cool too. No suggestion will go unnoticed!
