As recommended by YOU. If you haven't already made a suggestion, make one now. If your suggestion isn't yet listed, please be patient.

Wow. You guys are incredible, I never expected such a staggering response. These should actually carry me well into next year. Feel free to add your own suggestions if you haven't already. I'll probably keep you guys posted as I meander through your sea of suggested reading material. Thanks again everybody - I'm totally blown away.

The Skulduggery Pleasant series, by Derek Landy. It's like no other magic/action book I've seen out there before, the first book is a must-buy.
Unfortunately if you're not in the UK or Ireland, you won't be able to purchase any physical copies past Book 3, but there are alternatives out there. :)

Eve and Adam by Michael Grant, perhaps? I think it's one of those books that's only loved by certain people, yet hated by everyone else.

But Life of Pi by Yann Martel is both a beautiful and intriguing read.

Also, if you like dragons, you can give Dragon Keeper by Carole Wilkinson a try. It's a trilogy, "Garden of the Purple Dragon" and "Dragon Moon" being the next in line, respectively.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a good read.
I was also going to recommend Crime and Punishment, but you already have that one. :3 I loved that book!
