    Oh my goodness there are so many!!! OK, I am just finishing my freshman year and so far this year I read only realistic fiction and I LOVED

    1. Godless (it is amazing and powerful and WOW)

    2. The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl (it is hillarious and serious and it might've made me cry. I don't remember if it did or not.)

    3. Shabanu (it was a class assignment and I was the only one who liked it)

    those are just my top three... If you read them, let me know how you like them!!!

    i don't know if you've heard of it, but the bible by god is the all-time bestseller everyone is talking about.

    if you like that one also check out harry potter. i'd read all the books before you watch the movies though. also, they might have to get a new main actor since the guy they'd been using got a little older and started getting into pornographic movies.

    I love all of Meg Cabot and Sophie Kinsella's books. I am in the process of reading Emily Giffins books now. They are really great authors.

    any Anne Rice books like

    Interview with vampire is really really good. they also made a movie with it that came out in 1994 and they still sell it. i bought it not to long ago at target and its really good. it has brad pitt, tom cruise, antonio bandarese, kirsten dunst

    but yeah that book is awsoe just like the movie so you should check them both out.

    and you should try twilight, its a big fantasy book with vampires also and its just really really good!!!!!
