Like the others, think of this as half a place to list what you're currently up to, half a place to list stuff you like! This way no one needs to feel like they have to turn their introduction into one big list of stuff! =D
Currently I'm rereading Exile's Honor by Mercedes Lackey (Heralds of Valdemar series of books) with the intent of following it up with Harry Potter or something... Honestly at this point I'm just doing my best to kill time 'books' wise till either Martin (ASoIaF) or Patric (The Kingkiller Chronicles) gets off their ass and give me a new book after all these years to read...
The best new 'finished' thing I've read of late is easily Pierce Brown's "Red Rising" trilogy. If you like dystopia's and all, I strongly recommend it!
For the most part I tend to stick to either fantasy or sci-fi stuff, with a lot of rereading. I've been reading books since I was like 5 (Boxcar Children lol) so I've got all manner of odds-and-ends books under my belt. Read a lot of dragonlance, harry potter obviously, a bunch of Mercedes Lackey stuff. Classics that I didn't much care for. I even managed to get through The Sword of Truth franchise (because I really really liked the good books, while despising the bad ones... zzz)! The Darkwing books... Hunger Games as family wouldn't shush up about it (Red Rising sooo much better). Oh and the Sara Douglas books where the first trilogy is normal enough, and then the followup trilogy is like batshit insane (Wayfarer Redemption)!
But yeah! Interested to see what people might mention here for me to pick up in time!
Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. This book is so comical, witty and delightfully written. It can take you out of any muggy mood. It has certainly helped me with a lot of my work/school/life stress.
