Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson (Series of 5)

It's about 5 kids who were engineered to fly and led by Maximum Ride aka Max. It's not that long and has really short chapters like 1 page long. It appeals to everyone (my brother loves them to) because it's written from the point of view of a girl but there's lots of fighting scenes. Eventually there's even romance. (FAXNESS if you see that now you kinda get it.)
Great book series!

I'm a huge fan of stephan king. the shining, christine, salem's lot, etc. Also check out some of his short story collections.
Oh and I love Jane Eyre. It's really well written and has believable characters

Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë

A must-read classic! I read it not so long ago and just loved it. The language is a bit old fashioned and difficult at times but it is also very beautiful and spells out a wonderfully magical story that has so many twists and turns you will constantly be surprised.

If you have not read it yet then do so! :P

I would suggest the series Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. I love it. It's like my Twilight to other teenage girls, I'm addicted to it.

I just read The Hollow by jessica Verday. It was not written very well and it didn;t explain things but I still couldn't put it down.

Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey



It's the first in the Dragonriders of Pern series, and it rocks! It blends sci fi and fantasy and the worldbuilding is amazing. I would give this book fifteen out of ten stars.

Cures for heartbreak by Margo Rabb.



It is a true story about a girl whose mother dies of melanoma in 12 days. It's a very good story about how she deals with it, and I really enjoyed it.

"A Wrinkle In Time" by Madeleine L'Engle

It contains scientific themes and is very interesting. L'Engle has an amazing imagination and she uses it frequently in this incredible book. Readers of all ages can enjoy it because it appeals to everyone.

Hey, hey everyone. Know what book should be read by every functional human being?



The Road, by Cormac McCarthy.



Seriously. It's probably the best book I've ever read. The most honest-to-God soul-crushingly bleak one too, now that I think about it.



But not in a terrible angsty way. Bleak in the way that a man who has had a child far beyond child-bearing age, and knows that he will not live to see that child grow can write about. (Cormac McCarthy is 76, and has a 10/11 year- old son.



The story revolves around a father and his son making their way to "the coast," across a ruined post-apocalyptic U.S. They're going there because... well because if they stay where they are, they will freeze to death.



The cause of the apocalypse is never mentioned, though the near total lack of sunlight, every single tree being burned and dead, and all the ash swirling about points at a nuclear war type thing, though radiation sickness is never shown.



But the plot isn't what's really great about it, though that is part of it. Just the prose itself is absolutely incredible. Just incredible. In fact, this is the book that inspired me to be a writer. It was the first book that really, really showed me that language can be incredibly beautiful.



Short version: THE ROAD= BOOK OF THE MONTH/YEAR/DECADE/MILLENNIUM

READ IT.

I reckon we should read:

"Just Listen" by Sarah Dessen.

It's a great book that's easy to read, and I can guarantee that almost everyone will love it!

Tiny bits here and there are a bit philisophical, which really adds to the whole feel of the book.



=)

Unwind by Neal Shusterman. Awesomest book ever! Even my friend (who is notorious for hating books) loved it!
