Good book suggestion?

I find myself wanting to read a book at night instead of tv but don't want to spend the precious time reading something that isn't that good. Does anyone here have a must read, can't put down kind of book? Thanks in advance!

here ya go:

The Glass Castle (absolutely fabulous!)
My Sister's Keeper
The Last Summer of You and Me
Jerald's Game (if you like Stephen King)
Davince Code
Angels and Demons (better than Davince Code)
Grand Avenue (a must read if you like chick flicks)
Angel's Crest (sad story, but well written)
Kite Runner (dark, lost my attention)
Summer Sisters
Survivor in Murder (JD ROBB)

I'll list more later when I remember some that I have read lately.

Is there a particular genre you like? Mysteries, Sci-fi, romance? That would help.

The Lies of Locke Lemora by Scott Lynch is one I recently read that I couldn't put down.

The Labrinth was pretty decent (kinda slow in spots and the characters were a little one-dimensional for my tastes).

Personally I think it's a little wordy, but the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyers is HUGELY popular with all my friends (I cannot emphasize the sheer extent of the 'Edward adoration' and these are women in their 30's). I think a good editor could have easily chopped 200 pages out of each book and made them a lot tighter which would have enhanced the story for me.

I am a terribly picky, analytical reader though, so all my recommendations come with qualifications. Happy reading!

anything by David Sadaris - short stories that make you not want to put the book down until you read them all and then sad when it is done. Hilarious writing...if you are not an ultra-conservative.

The Curious Incidient of the Dog in the Nighttime

The Memory Keeper's Daughter

I agree w/ PP - Kite Runner

Anything by Edward Abbey (The monkey wrench gang, heyduke lives!)

The Tim Travel's Wife

I just finished The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks. Great book - a little suspense and a little romance all in one!

If your into shopping then any of the Shopoholic books by Sophie Kinsella.

Her form of writing is actually pretty funny. She made me laugh so many times on the subway while reading these books. i swear people looked at me like i was crazy....
