    Stephen King is always good. Not looking for anything scary? Try Insomnia, that one isn't scary, just really, really good. Another by him (and Peter Straub) is The Talisman. That is possibly the best book I've ever read.

    How old are you? In the young adult section there's Riddles of Epsilon by Christine Morton-Shaw, Perfect and Lush by Natasha Friend, Wrecked by E.R Frank, and Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr.

    All are good books,

    Hope this helps.

    --Poison study and series by Snyder- Yelena, about to be executed, is offered the job of food taster to the Commander of Ixia, but politics and magic keep threatening her life. Has romance, and a strong heroine. (Storm glass and series too!)

    --Uglies by Westerfield- Just before their sixteenth birthdays, when they will will be transformed into beauties whose only job is to have a great time, Tally's best friend runs away and Tally must find her and turn her in, or never become pretty at all.

    --Graceling by Cashore- In a world where some people are born with extreme and often-feared skills called Graces, Katsa struggles for redemption from her own horrifying Grace, the Grace of killing, and teams up with another young fighter to save their land from a corrupt king. Romance and strong heroine

    --Harry Potter by Rowling- Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry.

    --Eragon by Paolini- In Alagaesia, a fifteen-year-old boy of unknown lineage called Eragon finds a mysterious stone that weaves his life into an intricate tapestry of destiny, magic, and power, peopled with dragons, elves, and monsters.

    --Jessica’s guide to dating the dark side by Fantaskey- Seventeen-year-old Jessica, adopted and raised in Pennsylvania, learns that she is descended from a royal line of Romanian vampires and that she is betrothed to a vampire prince, who poses as a foreign exchange student while courting her.

    --Evermore by Noel- Since the car accident that claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras and hear people's thoughts, and she goes out of her way to hide from other people until she meets Damen, another psychic teenager who is hiding even more mysteries.

    -City of Ember- In the year 241, twelve-year-old Lina trades jobs on Assignment Day to be a Messenger to run to new places in her decaying but beloved city, perhaps even to glimpse Unknown Regions.
