I'm in the mood to read a great book. Help me find some that are right up my alley.

I'm in a transitional phase in my life where I'm slowly learning how to be on my own and figuring out what to do with the rest of my life. I'd love to read a fictional book that deals with similar themes. Loneliness, alienation, love, unrequited love, feeling lost - a book that I can connect with. That'll make me feel less alone, afraid etc. I don't want to read a depressing book but I don't want to read a sappy one either. I think I'd benefit reading about a character who overcomes great challenges and grows from the experience.
I haven't read a lot of books in my life (though I enjoyed Vonnegut's Sirens of Titan immensely and I've read Catcher in The Rye) so I'm completely in the dark about current authors. I apologize if what I'm saying is vague. I've also just got into graphic novels/independent comics - so I'm not opposed to those either.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
