I read fantasy-books for the most part, but not that much. But i guess more than most people (since half of the young people nowadays don't seem to read anything.)
The Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan (The beginning is too slow but except that its fun.)
Truth Series from Dawn Cook (My gawd, are the US-Covers gruesome and cheesy)
The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan stroud is also nice and often funny.
I really can recommend The Leap
written by him. I heard it as a Audiobook (German) and was entertaining the whole time. Especially the end... woah... I was thrilled. Shitstorm
Terry Pratchett is also nice, though got tired of his writing relatively fast. Or "Mort" the book I've started with simply was the best of the ones I've read.
I've started The Song of Ice and Fire months ago as a Audiobook - The beginning was great but shortly after it all came down to politics, and I'm not into that very much. Especially if you've got like 50 different characters.
And btw: Joe Abercrombie - First Law is fucking bullcrap.
And i don't know if Inkheart from Cornelia Funke is as hyped in the US/UK like it is/was here, but I've fought through 1/2 of the book and really hated this boring, full of uninteresting and stupid characters shitfuck book. I wouldn't read it through if i got 100 bucks for it.
@misteroldschool: I've seen the movie. Don't know how much it has to do with the Book, but it was great
