Brave New World by A Huxley- It's such a classic.
A lot but I remember Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind as it was so effective in describing odors, smells and the Medioeval Paris grittiness I could bet I've been there.
I am also re-reading all my childhood books to reignite my creativity and it is working absolute wonders .... wind in the willows, narnia books, roald dahl etc... so i would highly recommend revisiting childhood books for adults for a reading list.
Poisonwood Bible - takes a while to get into but it's amazing. Also Practical Magic if you want something less heavy, it's so much better than the film (which was amazing)
the Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo
