Seconding the His Dark Materials series. The books are, in order:
The Golden Compass/The Northern Lights (depending on where you live)
The Subtle Knife
The Amber Spyglass
Alternately, the Young Wizards books by Diane Duane (starting with 'So You Want to Be a Wizard') are great YA fiction, but they might be a little...I dunno, 'young' for you. I read them and enjoyed them, though.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
BLOG WILL BE UPDATED SOMETIME. MAYBE.
