    The Book Thief by Markus Zukas

    Long, but the ending was completely worth it. Such a sad book, I cry every time I read it. Set in the times of the Holocaust

    A Great & Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

    Good book, keeps you entertained. Set in the victorian age and full of magic and good and evil. One of my favorites about two kids who die, but don't make it to the light at the end of the tunnel. They're Afterlights, suck between the two worlds with a bunch of other kids. I've enjoyed all of Neal's books I've read.

    A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

    A really sweet teenage love story.

    Maximum Ride by James Patterson

    I've really come to like these books. The characters are funny and it's really easy and fun to read.

    Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

    You have to read it to really understand it. The movie was good too.

    And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

    If you want to give mystery a try, this is a great book. Creepy and brilliant. Don't read about it too much, you won't want to spoil the ending. Just get it and try not to skip to the end.

    Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

    I really just adore this book. One of my favorites!

    Tithe by Holly Black

    Faerie story, which I thought was really good. Holly is quite the dark writer.

    humm.....when i was your age a read absolutely normal chaos, but 14 is more mature now then it mom and i both read 'Trixie Belding' its like 'Nacey Drew' but better!

    I have always loved John Steinbeck, try the 'illustrated man'.

    You might be to young but, 'even cowgirls get the blues' is great! There is a movie with Uma Thurman but read the book first! Oh, the book 'eaters of the dead' is really good too, the 13th warrior is the movie(there is so...much more to the book)

    'a ripple in time' or 'dune'

    The Dragonlance Chronicles (Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night, & Dragons of Spring Dawning) are a great adventure story.

    The Death Gate Series by Hickman and Weis is good.

    Good Omens by Pratchett & Gaiman is one of my favorites.

    Anything by Agatha Christie is a good mystery. Especially Ten Little Indians.

    I loved The Lord of the Rings too. Have you ever read The Children of Hurin by JRR Tolkien?

    Obviously any Harry Potter, The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown is really good...that's what I'm reading now.
