Any good book recommendations?

Fantasy/horror are my favorite genres, but I will read anything if it interests me enough. It should be known that I enjoy stories that are different, as in it's not a typical magical adventure journey. Thanks.

    Fantasy books are the best. Most of these in the list also became movies, which is an added bonus for me because I love both film and novels and enjoy comparing the two to see if the movie version can compare in quality to the novels.

    The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. The first book is Clockwork Angel. I love that series to pieces.

    Although they're more suspense/mystery than horror I would recommend Girl on the Train, Gone Girl, and The Woman in Cabin 10. Theyre all fairly popular so you may have read them, but if not I highly recommend all three!!!

    Try some Old School Jules Verne and Mark Twain. "The Prince and the Pauper" is a great book to read on a rainy day. Also try "Captain's Courageous" by Rudyard Kipling, Also try books or stories by author Raymond Chandler like "The Big Sleep". For humor, try "It's Anybody's Ballgame" by Joe Garagiola, and "The Dog Who Wouldn't Be" by Farley Mowat. Oldies but still goodies!
