The Stand and Cujo, by Stephen King (*NOT the movies - the BOOKS) "Thinner" Stephen King writing as Bachman. Every single Harry Potter book, except The Deathly Hallows = liked movie better. Oh - first and foremost = "Watership Down."
The Bronze Horseman hands down! its an AMAZING novel, full of forbidden love, war in Russia, and weaved in with the history of WWII. Its beautiful and exquisite - the most original, absorbing novel I've ever read :) PLEASE read it!
