seventh tower series.

sure they are kids books, but they were really good fantasy books.
Infinite Jest, by David Foster Wallace.
The Long Hard Road Out of Hell by Neil Strauss and Marilyn Manson. A book from my more "gothy" teenage years that I still love today.
Dracula
Witcher books series
The Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix

If I had to pick one, always a great read. I have many books I love though.

watership down
lovecraft, necronomicon
speaker for the dead

and a wow throw in because it honestly is really good, lord of the clans
Hyperion Cantos.

Ilium/Olympos if you want to read original writing read this.

Dan Simmons will blow your mind.
I have a weird problem where I barely remember what I read. It doesn't really stick with me unless I specifically hear the name. As such, I.. don't really know what my favourite book was. I guess when I was a young teen I really liked Heir Apparent? I read it twice in a week. I read the first Game of Thrones book in two days too.

Hm. Weird.

It's long, but good. You'll fall in love with a specific character you didn't like in the first few books. You'll come to get really annoyed with women being manipulative and generally awful people. You'll unconsciously think of tugging braids.

It's good stuff.

I pretty much have to say Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Remember, kids! Bringing about Armageddon can be dangerous.

Since the theme appears to be highbrow sci-fi though I'll throw in a vote for the Red Mars trilogy.

So hard to pick. I could read Tolkein, Verne (esp journey to the center of the earth and mighty orinoco), Calvino(cosmicomics is top 3 of all time, or invisible cities), or Rushdie(enchantress of florence, midnight children, two years...) 1000 times and never tire of them. I also really like Kingkiller Chronicles, Anything by Charles Stross, classic era science fiction like Bradbury, Dick, Clarke, Heinlein, Aldriss, etc. The Glass Bead Game. The Starmaker. Across the Nightingale floor or Calvin and Hobbes, if the latter can be considered reading.

Nietzsche, Emerson, Goethe, Cervantes, Spinoza, Wordsworth, any Nordic Saga, any Celtic mythology, 1001 nights, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Aeschylus, Rumi, Voltaire, Sertillanges, and many more.

If you include physics or math papers as reading, then anything related and possibly useful to my work becomes an ephemeral favorite.
