When in doubt, or at a lull, or bored, or....whatever....try a "classic" which will awaken something new no doubt. Step out of your comfort zone. My suggestions: Tess of the D'Uberville, Silas Marner, To Kill a Mockingbird, Gone With the Wind, The Postmas Always Rings Twice, Little Women, The Great Gatsby, Valley of the Dolls, Wuthering Heights, Hawaii, etc., etc., etc. So many many books. Try them all on for size.....
If you like Christopher Moore, you might want to try Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, and Joseph Heller. I only like Douglas Adams and Joseph Heller, but those 4 are normally recommended together.
Since you liked "The Metamorphisis", I'd suggest: "Death of a Salesman" by Arthur Miller and "The Stranger" by Albert Camus. We read them around the same time in AP English during High School.
Since you liked "Siddhartha", I'd suggest: "The Alchemist" by Paul Coelho, "The Little Prince" by Antoine De Saint-Exupery, "The Teachings of Don Juan" by Carlos Castenada, "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz, "The Seat of the Soul" by Gary Zukav, and "The Seven Valleys and the Four Valleys" by Baha'u'llah. There's a couple I didn't like in this list, but they are ones that people I know have suggested in the same vein.
I also second the recommendations for the following books: Silas Marner, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Wuthering Heights.
Check out http://literature-map.com/ for suggestions. I've had really good luck with that one.
Go to http://www.gnooks.com/ and use their book suggestion feature. You enter the names of three authors you like and they will make suggestions based on those authors. Found lots of new authors/books that way.
