    West with the Night, Beryl Markham (Real-life; rated one of the best 100 nonfiction books written in the past 100 years.)

    In a Sunburned Country, Bill Bryson

    Carry On, Jeeves, P. G. Wodehouse. Both are comedy/humor.

    Expecting Adam, Martha Beck

    Tree Shepherd's Daughter, Gillian Summers (trilogy). Both are Romance. EA is also Real-life.

    The Path of the Higher Self, Mark Prophet Nonfiction about understanding self.

    The Great Divorce, C. S. Lewis Fiction about understanding self. Both well-written, profound.

    The Cat Who Could Read Backwards, Lilian Braun Start of a series of "The Cat Who..." light mysteries.

    Divergent by Veronica Roth

    Romance in a dystopian world. I find this fun to read and humorous but the first few chapters may not be as enticing as the whole book.

    Singer in the Snow by Louise Marley

    Sci-fi with a bit of romance. A somewhat feel-good book (for me)

    Repossessed by A.M. Jenkins

    Fantasy. Very inspiring. A demon (?) wants to live life as a human so he possesses the body of a teenage boy.

    The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

    Romance and fantasy. Very enjoyable. The romance gets a little sad in the second book but the ending of the third book makes up for it.

    The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

    A book that I would recommend to anyone and everyone. But maybe that's because I'm Gaiman-biased.
