    I'd like to hear some reasons behind your preferences because I realized the only way I have been judging books is by the impulse of either copying their styles or causing in reality the story they were about. Thoughts?

    Me personally, I read about Buddhism, Christian spirituality etc etc.
    But I also like to plunge into zen Taoist literature.
    It's been an interest of mine since my (long gone) teenager years.

    Also I like to read about tai chi Chuan, which I recently picked up again.
    :)

    I love the vampire academy series. I watched the movie and fell in love with the characters but I realized they weren't going to continue the movies. I started the series and I love them more. I love the badass main character, she is sassy, strong, and sarcastic. I highly recommend the series if you like fantasy.

    I love Jeffrey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series- after about book 4, then he starts to really get in his stride. I love how he keeps surprising me and there's lot of layers to the story.

    A book I can continuously return to is Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck. It's a travel-log/nonfiction novel and it's from John's later years, so his wisdom permeates throughout the pages. There are some magnificent lines in there, pages upon pages of contemplation of what it means to be a human being and to interact with your fellow human beings.

    JRR Tolkien is one of my favorite author. I love reading his books. His writing is elegant and descriptive. 

    Crime and Punishment is a great book I read recently. Also The Count of Monte Cristo.

    Anything by Neil Gaiman, he's my favorite author.  Started on his comic book series "The Endless" and "Death".  Loved Coraline and Stardust too.  He's just a great writer.

    I loved The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.
