Enderīs Game is another Sci-Fi I have yet to read....damn, too much to read, too little time T_T" (and having a bunch of mangas on your to-read list isnīt helping, either xD).
I got lucky in that I read most of these before the hype (ie film/tv adaptations) set it. I've also got friends with really bad taste in books, so I distrust most recommendations from them, no matter how much they hype the things. That makes it fine when it actually turns out to be a good read.

Try some of Brandon Sanderson's standalone books. Or hell, most of Guy Gavriel Kay's novels are standalone (more historical fantasy here, though). Both have been staples in my library for quite some time, give 'em a shot if you're bored.
great books, TV series doesnt do it justice... although they tried.
so much sorrow, so much vengeance and a good display of human nature. its by no means a happy fairytale but the show has good eye candy. the book itself is nicely narrated i just hope the guy gets to complete the series...
