book recs!

So, in the next few days, I'll be hitting up Barnes & Noble and Borders to make use of the giftcards I got for Christmas (cumulative $50 - $55 from B&N, $20 from Borders). Problem is, I don't know what to buy!

Therefore, I need book recs. Recommend me a book to read!

Below the cut is a list of the books I own. Gives you a basic idea of what I like to read, in addition to letting you know what I already have so you don't rec. it to me. ;D

Books are listed in alphabetical order by author's last name, then either alphabetical by title or chronological, if chronology matters.
