What book should I read?

I need something new to read but I don't know what!!! Recently I've read

A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho

Outlander by Gil Adamson

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

Can anyone give me their picks with a bit of a plot line so I know what it's about?

Thanks!
