I want to read a 40k novel or two, due to current time constraints i have not the time to siv through bad ones.
Suggestions of good ones will be most appreciated.
Eisenhorn Trilogy is awesome.
<(^^)> <(^^<) (>^^)> ^(^^)^ Dance Kirby! Dance!
The four Ciphias Cain books are also awesome.
(For the Emperor, Caves of Ice, Traitor's Hand, and the new one with the Orks in it)
Both the Gaunt's Ghosts and Space Wolf series are good reads, but if you're looking for the best bang for your buck maybe you should go for some of the anthologies like Deathwing.
Veni Vidi Variant
I came, I saw, I got a different type of Leman Russ.

Saga of the Ages. Click it.
Rules for grenades are on page 72 of the rulebook.
If you want a good anthology then I recently got "Let the Galaxy Burn". 38 varied stories about most 40K races (mostly SM) but also about Necrons and 'The Fall of Malvolion' by Dan Abnett is the best 'nid story ever.
However bypass the first story. Unless you want to read about Black Templar Devastator Squads!?! how to beat Khorne and why 6,000 Traitors could kill a Hive World (because theres no such thing as PDF.) Rant over.
Its got some Ravenor bits which are tempting and as most of the Authors do other 40K literature you ca see which ones you like and focus on thier books.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
What I'd recommend is the Gaunt's Ghost series, as well a unique book called Fifteen Hours. Then again it depends on what part of the 40k universe gets your attention and then search for books related to that army, race, or event.
Other than that, there's nothing else I can really do for you since it's your choice and money that picks the book.
May the Dice Gods bless your Rolls.
I'll be damned before the soldiers of the Emperor are just left to rot!

If it doesn't work with the Emperor. Then it's been officially Karmooned!!!

Having read all the 40k fluff novels published by Black Library, Iâ€™ve got to agree with Sanctus: everything by Dan Abnett is excellent, but the Eisenhorn trilogy is particularly so. Itâ€™s the one book I always recommend as a â€˜first-readâ€™ book to Black Library newcomers because it functions brilliantly as an introduction to the 40k fluff universe, contains heaps of fluff, and is a greatly entertaining read in general. Plus, since the trilogy has now been published in a single omnibus, it can be acquired easily and cheaply in most Games Workshop stores.
Other than that, though, it would help greatly if you could tell us what factions you particularly favour within the 40k universe. There are novels to be found about most races and armies, although unfortunately not all are of the same high quality as Abnettâ€™s works. Still, having a particular interest might endear the books to you nonetheless, so please do let us know.

"Lord of the Night" is an excellent example of the psyche of a Chaos Marine, and it's full of delicious horror scenes as well.
"Storm of Iron" I hear good things about, although I haven't gotten my hands on it yet.
Another vote here for "Eisenhorn" although the anthology is quite long (Three novels and two short stories) but an excellent read nonetheless.
