Looking for a great book!?

I'm interested in reading something that is challenging such as Wuthering Heighst; Jane Eyre; and Anna Karenina. I just don't see myself getting "into" them (I've been on page 18 of Anna Karenina May of 2012). So I need a book that is challenging ,entertaining and will have me hooked in pages. I've enjoyed the Twilight series (judge me), Harry Potter, Crossing the Tracks (READ IT!), The Help, Nicolas Sparks books, as well as various non-fiction books focusing on American history. As you can see my horizon could use an expansion.

    Monster Hunter International

    by Larry Correia

    Series: Monster Hunters International by Larry Coreia

    Publisher: Baen Books

    Welcome to Monster Hunter International.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a fourteenth story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer.

    It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Officially secret, some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. On the other side are the people who kill monsters for a living. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    It's actually a pretty sweet gig, except for one little problem. An ancient entity known as the Cursed One has returned to settle a centuries old vendetta. Should the Cursed One succeed, it means the end of the world, and MHI is the only thing standing in his way. With the clock ticking towards Armageddon, Owen finds himself trapped between legions of undead minions, belligerent federal agents, a cryptic ghost who has taken up residence inside his head, and the cursed family of the woman he loves.

    Business is good . . .

    Supernatural Butt—

    She's a Techie Genius, Too!

    Inventor, girl genius Tinker lives in a near-future Pittsburgh which now exists mostly in the land of the elves. She runs her salvage business, pays her taxes, and tries to keep the local ambient level of magic down with gadgets of her own design. When a pack of wargs chase an Elven noble into her scrap yard, life as she knows it takes a serious detour. Tinker finds herself taking on the Elven court, the NSA, the Elven Interdimensional Agency, technology smugglers and a college-minded Xenobiologist as she tries to stay focused on what's really important – her first date. Armed with an intelligence the size of a planet, steel toed boots, and a junk yard dog attitude, Tinker is ready to kick butt to get her first kiss.
