The Count of Monte Christo still tops my list. For those few of you who probably have not read this classic by Alexandre Dumas (its pronounced Doo-Mah, not dumbass!) heres a thirty second plot synopsis:
Man gets married. Man is wrong by a supposed friend and locked up in an unescapable prison he later escapes from. But before he does he meets a batshit crazy priest with a hidden fortune and the old priest tells him where to find the money.
Then he escapes!
And then he finds the money to go on a long, convluted plan to discredit those who had him imprisoned falsely, only to find out his best girl married his mortal enemy! And so in the end he does get his revenge but it pretty much costs him his soul, almost. No seriously, Im dumbing the plot down ALOT. Guess its hard for that to not be my favorite when I lived it.. all except the fortune part. im still fucking broke. :( but, I still have all of my soul.. I think.

Anyways! Great book. Dunno if you can find it on kindle but Id bet you could. Easily. Or nook. :) or any other bookreading app. It really IS a classic. :D

Kushiel's chosen series, basically anything by Jacqueline Carey, nice lady.
Anything by Piers Anthony, if you dont mind puns hahaha. As in a cottage cheese is a cottage of cheese.
and Anne Bishop.
Let the warriors clamor after gods of blood and thunder; love is hard, harder than steel and thrice as cruel. It is as inexorable as the tides, and life and death alike follow in its wake.

My personal favorite series would be "The Runelords" by David Farland. Part 1-4 is one story arc, with the books afterward being a separate story arc.

Part 1 - The Sum of All Men
Part 2 - Brotherhood of the Wolf
Part 3 - Wizardborn
Part 4 - The Lair of Bones

This topic is going to be a great reference place to choose books. I should have mentioned another favorite series Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia. https://www.amazon.com/Poughkeepsie-Bro ... epsie+book
