Top of my head:
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
Shut Your Eyes Tight by John Verdon
'Salem's Lot by Stephen King
Only series I've ever read all of so far is 'Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy' by Douglas Adams. But I expect to add 'The Dark Tower' by Stephen King, Ian Rankin's Rebus series, John Verdon's Dave Gurney series, and maybe Noah Boyd's Steve Vail series.
