Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone by J. K. Rowling. A nice modern day classic, it still doesn't come to my mind of how she wrote most of her book on a napkin, in a cafeteria.
Wereling by Steve Feasey. A hard to drop book mythical book, you might even continuously read it without even noticing the time.
The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien. A long adventure that trudges you on until you've touched the back. A Fantasy novel about: survival, honor, and adventure.
Slam by Walter Dean Myers. An inspiring book that takes you through the life of an African who deals with hardships on the streets of Harlem. And his name is his game. (=)
