For fantasy, I'd highly recommend the George RR Martin series, "A Song of Ice and Fire," if you haven't read it already. Anything by Robin Hobb is good too. "The Farseer Trilogy" is a good one to start with.
I love historical fiction too and I've recently gotten into the books by Sharon Kay Penman. I especially liked her Welsh Kings trilogy which starts with the book, "Here be Dragons."
It looks like you have gotten lots of other recommendations here! I hope some of this is helpful.

Even if you aren't into vampires, Dracula is a fantastic, suspenseful read. Also, The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux.
If you love Jane Austen, check out Evelina by Fanny Burney. She was a predecessor of Austen who influenced her writing, characters, and even the names she used.
I have a friend that gravitates to historic fiction that really enjoyed The Other Boleyn Girl, Sister Queens, and similar books on the Tudor era that I cannot recall the names of at the moment.
I'm just a third-culture girl with an affinity for names.
In loving memory of Margot

Night Watch and The Thirteenth Tale, I'll bump them up my list a bit. I've read The Gargoyle, The Time Traveler's Wife, some Zafon, and The Once and Future King. Loved them all to bits. The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who... sounds amazing!! That just shot up to the very top of my list. I used to read to the elderly at a retirement home and there was a woman who used to tell me her elaborate escape plans. She loved romance novels. Anyway, I'm excited for my next book shopping trip.Cordelia Eilonwy Snow | Evadne Snow | Felicity Astra Wildrose | Gwenna Moon | Lorelei Ondine | Octavia Eowyn Sol
