I have to say that I am usually into pretty much anything as long as it's somewhat well written and has a decent plot. Sometimes I can fall prey to buying books solely on the front and back covers, but I don't like to read books where the author drones on over one subject for any lengthy period of time ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" did this and I couldn't read but a chapter at a time), because that puts me to sleep. I've loved authors from Dean Koontz to Greg Iles to Jeffrey Eugenides to Josh Bazell and Ken Follet. Most of the time I enjoy mysteries and thrillers. I'd never heard of Josh Bazell, and I couldn't believe how entertaining he was. Most of the time, I get recommendations from books my friends have read. Recently, a friend of mine (who is related to this author) gave me a copy of a book called "Wavering" by Virginia Frazier. It has an awesome cover, and it's a pretty easy read, but I have to say it was one of the fastest books I've ever read, and not because it's short. It moved very quickly. Also, I was once a young teenage girl, so I couldn't help but empathize with the main character and want to find out more about her situation with the stalker and why she ended up where she was in the beginning of the book (it's one of those stories where you start at the end of the book, go into the past, and then go back to what was occurring in the beginning of the book). All I have to say is that I was surprised, and I couldn't help but tear up over her situation. You have to read "Wavering" to know what I'm talking about.
