Ok, I've only really read a few books in my life that I actually enjoyed and couldn't put down. Narnia, Harry Potter, Eragon (sort of) and Lord of The Rings. Well, I guess I think of Lord of the Rings as a really good book, but I got bored with it at times. I've read a lot of other books that people say are so good but I find most of them to be really boring, unoriginal or just bad writing. I really hate that new writing style that authors are using like in Maximum ride where everything is in first person through the main character, and the "Don't put this book down" thing in the beginning really bugged me. I also didn't like Pendragon, I thought it was pretty bad writing and I guess it seamed to be a little to..young for me. I kind of like the more serious writing style that doesn't try so hard to relate to teenagers. I think even though Harry Potter is aimed towards younger readers, it has a great writing style that really makes you care about whats going on.
If you want to suggest a book to me, make sure the book truly meets these requirements.
1: Well written (not just a good story, I mean skillfully, cleverly written.)
2: not boring
3: If possible, it would be nice if the book had the sort of writing style I was talking about.
4: Not kiddy (I hate the kind of books that make you feel stupid when reading them because all the themes are so simple and thoughtless.)
5: Doesn't have to have wizards, magic, special "chosen one" people or anyone perticularly special. But if the book is truly good, why not.
6: No Vampires -PERIOD-
7: None of these: Pendragon, Twilight, The wheel of time, Maximum ride, the Gorge Martin books.
I know I'm really picky, but I just can't seem to find any books I like anymore. The books can be higher level reading to.10 AnswersBooks & Authors1 decade ago
I didn't like reading an till I read the Harry potter books. They totally turned me on to reading and I loved them! The problem is, ever since I finished the series, I haven't been able to find any books that are as fun to read. I've read the Eregon series, the percy jackson series and 3 books in the pendragon series so far. None of the books even came close to Harry potter. I had to kind of force myself to read them thinking they would get really good, but they didn't. The point is, I really want to find a books that's really good and not a total rip of of another book. Is that so hard? I loved the hobbit, Narnia and The Lord of the Rings and of course Harry potter, but so far I haven't found any books that are very good. does anybody have any recommendations? As you can see, I like fantasy and adventure books so if you know of any, please tell me.11 AnswersBooks & Authors1 decade ago

I was just sitting around the diner table at my grandparents house when my Dad asked for a Tums. I Corrected him saying "You say can I have a tum not can I have a tums" . He said I was wrong and surprisingly my whole family including my Grandparents agreed with him. So what is it? Do you say "Can I have a Tum" Or "Can I have a Tums"?9 AnswersWords & Wordplay1 decade ago
