So I have just finished a book and am loving reading again! I usually read "easy reading", cruisy sort of books - Jodi picoult, Danielle steel, Richard north Paterson. But am looking to challenge myself this year. I want to read some books that inspire me, make me think! Any suggestions?

Some different suggestions/genre for you to consider:
Have you read any classics?
To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee is a favourite.
I personally like to read biographies and real life crime novels. I also love Japanese (translated into English) crime fiction, my all time favourite is a book called "Out" by Natsuo Kirino.
But it's pretty weird and gruesome in parts. Which I happen to like I like books set in China/Japan in general- Have you read The Joy Luck Club?
Do you like reading short stories? I always have a book with short stories on the go as I tend to tire of long, drawn out novels unless they are really, really good.

I am reading 'memoirs of a Geisha' at the moment and really enjoying it.
Cane River is another I have read a few times.
Eat,Pray, Love is much better than the movie.
There are so many I can suggest but just cant remember at the moment

The mortal instruments by Cassandra Claire is an amazing series, kind of like Harry Potter meets twilight, more grown up then Harry Potter though and not witches or wizards....has shadow hunters, vampires, werewolves, demons, warlocks and faeries. Not sure if it would be your type of reading but I was hooked after the first page! The infernal devices is another series by the same author and links to the mortal instruments but is set back in the 1800s and is to do with the shadow hunters ancestors.

Midnight in the garden of good and evil by John Berendt
Sam's letters to Jennifer by James Patterson
The Mercy of thin air by Ronlyn Domigue
Even after all this time by Afischineh Latifi.
If I had to pick just one to make you think then I'd pick Even after all this time.
or maybe Midnight in the garden of good and evil.
