I Need Book Recs!

So, I've been in one of the worst creative slumps of my writing careers (the ABSOLUTE worst was when I 15 and I didn't write a damn thing for 5 months straight *shiver*).

The thing I found that usually pulls me out of a slump is reading a friggin' great book. A book so extraordinarily good, the just holding it or seeing the cover energizes me so much that I can't help but to write.

And now, I bet you can guess what my problem is: the books I've been reading have been...so so. Nothing is giving me that electrical urge to open Word and pour my heart out, they just make me go "Did I really just spend money on this?" or "Um, did the author just get bored at the end and decided to write this shit?"

Goodreads has let me down tremendously , so now I ask you, my fellow writers to give book recs. You can recommend anything (even stories written on here) it doesn't matter the genre, BUT I do ask not to rec any series because I'm just not ready to make that commitment yet! For reference, here's some of my fav books:

-Bastard Out of Carolina
-By The Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead
-The Virgin Suicides
-Invisible Monsters

Really, just comment with the book that gives that itchin' urge to write.
