Any help? I need good books that you've read!?

I'm an avid reader and writer, but lately i've been really stuck on what to read to help enhance my writing. Is there any good books that you really liked? Give me a list if you can. I'm open to genres... maybe romance... but light romance. I like the Twilight kind of books. No other vampires though. It doesnt have to be about unreal creatures too... just a good story with descriptive language? Please help!

    I liked the Orson Scott Card series on Ender and Bean and his Seventh Son series. He also wrote some interesting novels based on the women of the Bible. (Not preaching, just the stories)

    If you really want to read a good book, try The Notebook by Nicholas Spark and A Walk To Remember. You owe it to yourself to read these, trust me.
