The "Maze Runner" trilogy, the Inheritance cycle (although the ending was weak, IMO) and the Percy Jackson series, the Lost Hero series, and the Kane chronicles all by Rick Riordan, and the Fablehaven books. There are tons more, half my room is like a library, but these really stand out to me.
My favorite author is James Patterson. I love his Alex Cross series! Such good books.
But my all time favorite is The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. If it weren't for this book, we probably wouldn't have the musical, the movie or anything of that sort as well, since they are based somewhat upon the book.
I will proudly proclaim that the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series is one of the best I've ever read. Each story is fantastic, and I really enjoy mythology, so these books were so much more enjoyable because of the fact the entire plot centered around it.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (Prince's Tale? Oh ♥♥♥♥, that was amazing)
The Long Walk.
Under the Dome.
The Bartimaeus Trilogy.
Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
If you haven't read any of these, I would highly recommend reading at least one of them. They all have phenomenal characters and settings.
