Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - JK Rowling Report Abuse
I am going to clump this book together with all Harry Potter books released this decade because they are all truly a huge part of culture and will undoubtedly be remembered for all time. The Deathly Hallows is the final book in the series, the neat little bow on a very intense, exciting, fantastical, and remarkable adventure. Rowling definitely saved the best for last.

The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini Report Abuse
Most of the reason I enjoy this novel so much is because the writing style reminds me of the classic novels from centuries ago. I love the classics, the style, the language, the use of literary devices to make everything seem poetic. And the plot reminds me of Romeo and Juliet, but only in the sense of relationships that are not meant to happen but just do within a world full of turmoil and pain. It is a must-read.

Invisible Monsters - Chuck Palahniuk Report Abuse
You either love him or you hate him, I for one, LOVE him. Palahniuk is shocking, often to a crude degree, but that's what makes his stories so intriguing. His books are living breathing monsters. Invisible Monsters is no different but this one actually has a good plot, a good message, and will truly make you hate yourself and almost everyone around you.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven - Mitch Albom Report Abuse
The age-old question "What is my purpose?" is explored in this emotional and intriguing novel. You never know who you are until you remember and appreciate where you've been.

The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown Report Abuse
This book sparked such a controversy amongst all sects of Catholics/Christians around the world. The idea of questioning the story of Jesus and Mary and that all the thinkers/artists of the past were involved in some sort of secret society seems totally radical. For those who are open-minded, and appreciate a good mystery, a lot of action, and a good conspiracy theory, this book is truly fantastic.

Twlight - Stephenie Meyer Report Abuse
Say what you will, but I am including the whole series here because whether you are 12 or 40, you can't deny a fun plot no matter how poor the writing itself may be. The story-line is fun to read, intense, imaginative, and Edward Cullen is now one of the most famous people in the world, even though he is a. a vampire, and b. a fictional character.
