My all time favorite --
Lolita by Vladamir Nobakov : Unreliable narrator Humbert Humbert becomes obsessed with a young girl and finds a way to become her stepfather and kidnap her. Just as a warning it's a very controversial book and has scenes of a sexual nature. I wouldn't recommend it to younger people but as I am not certain how old all of you are...

Something of a lighter nature --
Youth in Revolt by C.D Payne : Teenager Nick Twisp falls in love and has to find ways to win over the girls affection, including ridiculous acts like setting cars on fire and pretending to be a woman. It's also now a movie with Michael Cera.

I started that Little Brother book, I'm currently on page 85. Haven't been able to stop reading since I opened the .pdf. I will update this post with my recommendations when I get a chance.

The Host by Stephenie Meyer is about an alien invasion of Earth, the aliens are the take-over-human-bodies type, but it turns out the aliens do a way better job with Earth than the humans. One alien is put in a very strong-willed human and the human's consciousness doesn't leave, so they end up sharing the body and bickering a lot. Eventually the human convinces the alien to help her look for a settlement of humans her uncle had been planning... (Now a movie) (Better characterization than Twilight series)

"The Kingkiller Chronicles", by Patrick Rothfuss is a great series of books if you are into fantasy-adventure. I won't go into great detail about the book, but I'll say that the author's version of magic "Sympathy" is quite refreshing from the usual type. Magic there actually comes with a high cost. Even just a tiny bit of it.
There are currently 3 books: The Name of the Wind, The Wise Man's Fear Part 1 and The Wise Man's Fear Part 2. I think the 4th one is to come out due next year.
Bye
