One of my favorite books right now is called Looking for Alaska by John Green. warning it has a little bit of risque material but seriously, this is the kind of book that can define a generation.

Flowers for Algernon made me think twice about how I view the mentally handicapped. Also, the ending broke my heart.
 
I haven't read The Kite Runner yet but everyone says it is amazing. I really should!
 
As for my favorites, I'd say Salinger's Nine Stories is my top pick. His characters just feel so human, so natural, that you can't help but fall in love with them. Orphan Master's Son will open your eyes to the atrocities in North Korea and you will find yourself suddenly becoming an activist. If you're up for something challenging, you should read The Road. McCarthy writes the greatest prose today.

This is sort of a thing for people who like action and plot driven stories rather than character driven stories, but Brandon Sanderson is an incredible author. Anything by him is definately worth a read. (His characters are good too, but the plot is better.)

Oh, this is going to be quite a list:
- Harry Potter (of course)
- Percy Jackson (and the others- Magnus Chase is out!)
- Red Rising (this book is amazing)
- The Chaos Walking Trilogy
- Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
- Ender's Game
- The Naturals (it's a murder mystery; personally I like the sequel better, but it's still good)
- The Fifth Wave
- Half Bad
