Also try "Mystic And Rider" it's the first book to it's series. Medieval-Fantasy.
I would say it's young adult reading-adult.
Dante's Inferno and Purgatorio.
The third book is also an incredible poem but I wouldn't suggest it as it's basically a few days of reading about how amazing and great Heaven is.
I only read Fantasy books but heres what I got:
Game of Thrones - if you can handle the adult content
The Death Gate Cycles - Not as bad as game of thrones but it has sugguestive themes at times but that is rare. It is a rather epic story
The Inheritence Cycle (Eragon)
Star Wars Extended Universe books mostly with Thrawn.
"You know, I think there are even more of them than last time?" "Although, it's really not much fun fighting the small fry." "Who cares? If I'm ordered to go out and attack, I'll do what I'm told." - Shani Andras/Orga Sabnak/Clotho Buer, Gundam SEED
Arrows of the Queen Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey. I know it's an old book, but they're fantastic, I HIGHLY recommend them.
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
Paint it Black by Janet Fitch.
“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"
"The broad wall of Babylon shall be leveled to the ground, and her high gates shall be burned with fire. The peoples labor for nothing, and the nations weary themselves only for fire."
"It is more blessed to give than to receive."
"For the word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
"Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident."
"Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith without wavering (for He is faithful who promised), and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works."
