I really like fantasy. Anything by Brandon Sanderson.ย 

The Stormlight Archive series heโ€™s working on is incredible.ย

Yeah I was going to recommend him but I've stopped recommending his books because he just can't finish that series. But what he's done is so good!ย 

The Gentleman Bastards series by Scott Lynch is phenomenal as well.

Dark comedies, think along the lines of Kurt Vonnegut or Confederacy of Dunces. Crime thrillers as well, more in the Gillian Flynn vein.

Also read a lot for personal development but those tend to be leadership, sales, how-to type books.

I've got a pretty big range because honestly any topic can draw me in if it's written well enough.

Itโ€™s tough. My favorite book is the alchemist but as far as genre it might actually be historical.ย

Sci-fi. The more "space opera" it is, the better.

How to Win Friends and Influence People - Dale Carnegie
Gap Selling - Keenan
Spin Selling - Neil Rackham
Sell or Be Sold - Grant Cardone
Little Red Book of Selling - Jeff Gotimer

There's always more to add to the list (Split the difference, thinking in bets, or even 7 habits of highly effective people are all great books, too). All are personal development and sales-focused books.
