If you want good book recommendations, it helps if you tell us your age, and one or two other books you really like. Otherwise you get a range of answers, mostly unhelpful. Look at the answers you've gotten so far: inkheart, a book written for middle schoolers, and game of thrones, an extremely graphic sexual and violent novel intended for adults. (as a side note, I tend to look down on those who recommend that book without giving any kind of warning about how graphic it is, they could be encouraging a child to read it, which would be highly innapropriate.) Seeing as we don't even know if you're male or female, we're really shooting blind here. But I'll do my best:
You could try Graceling by Kristen Cashore.
Here's a description (I hand typed it because I couldn't find it online, so any typo's are mine. Without further ado, the description:
His eyes. Kasta had never seen such eyes. One was silver and the other, gold. They glowed in his sun-darkened face, uneven, and strange. She was surprised that they hadn’t shown in the darkness of their first meeting. They didn’t seem human…
Then he raised his eyebrows a hair, and his mouth shifted into the hint of a smirk. He nodded at her, just barely, and it released her from her spell. Cocky, she thought. Cocky and arrogant, this one, and that was all there was to make of him. Whatever game he was playing, if he expected her to join he would be disappointed.
In a world where people born with an extreme skill --- called a grace --- are feared and exploited, Kasta carries the burden of a grace that even she despises: the grace of killing. She lives under the command of her uncle Randa, King of the Middluns, and is expected to execute his dirty work, punishing and torturing anyone who displeases him. Until one day, when she rebels.
Or Terrier (The Legend of Beka Cooper, #1) by Tamora Pierce
Sixteen-year-old Beka Cooper lives far removed from knights, palaces, and the nobility. Her world revolves around thieves, beggars, taverns, and the lowest of the low. She's a trainee for the Provost's Guard—a rookie cop, in a world where a cop makes her own name based on her personality, her attitude toward money, and her love of the law. Beka means to prove that she is out to make her mark in this hard and physical world. She does face a large obstacle. She's shy. Painfully shy. It's hard for her to talk to people she doesn't know. It's a problem for the Guards who train her, a real problem for Beka—unless she can figure out that a uniform is a kind of costume, one she can hide behind. One that will make her a more outspoken person. Luckily, she has one friend living with her in her slum apartment: a purple-eyed black cat named Pounce. He can make himself understood in human speech if he wishes to. He's capable of doing weirdly intelligent things to help his young companion Beka. With Pounce to assist her, Beka cannot have an ordinary career.
(Oh, and she has magic. The book is a fantasy murder mystery, it’s great. Anything by Tamora Pierce is great, really.)
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Starts a little slow but gets amazing pretty quickly:
My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day.
You may have heard of me.
So begins the tale of Kvothe—from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe as a notorious magician, an accomplished thief, a masterful musician, and an infamous assassin. But The Name of the Wind is so much more—for the story it tells reveals the truth behind Kvothe's legend.
In the likely event that I guessed wrong, and none of these books interest you, try this:

Inkhearts good. Its a large book. And by big book might you mean Big Impressive book? Reading To Kill A Mocking Bird will complete your life. The entire book feels like a series; don't read the first two paragraphs if you don't want to get bored from it easily. Its the type of book you need to push yourself to read in the beginning. You won't ever regret it its amazing. Drama love story? Alyson Noel has two good ones; I recommend you start off with Evermore. Its a page turner. The Immortal Series has about 7 or 8 books ~Evermore being the first.

"A Song of Fire and Ice" series by George R. R. Martin. Possibly one of the best series written, and certainly the best currently ongoing.
The first book is "A Game of Thrones". They are making (made?) a TV series based on this book. (I've never seen it, so cannot say how good, or how true to the book.)
---- Edit for Clarkie ---
I doubt you'll see this, but you are correct. There is so much more to the book then the graphic scenes, I tend to forget. In the future, I'll only recommend this series when I have more information regarding the reader. And I will include a warning.
