- where you can type in a book you like and then it will come up with results of another books you may like. You may also create an account there where you can add books that you have read and liked or disliked so the list gets more detailed to your likings.
You might just want to search "YA books" or maybe add your favorite genre in Example: Google search "YA fantasy books".

Hi, you might want to try my own recently published book, entitled "The Tales of Tanglewood: The Lon Dubh Whistle".
The first in a series, Tales of Tanglewood melds together influences of Celtic and Irish mythology with modern-day folklore, and is a fantasy novel to be enjoyed and cherished by all ages. Within the pages of this tome you will find the adventures of Colin, a child who is fully aware of the hidden world of myth and wonder hiding within the woods just beyond his home, long kept secret by old magic. Only the fey magic which runs through his veins has enabled him to find what others cannot; the Tanglewood, the wood within the woods. Full of odd characters and fey beings, the Tanglewood is a world of magnificent folklore come to life.
For more details and to download the first three chapters for free, go to http://www.talesoftanglewood.com/
or you can check out the reviews at Amazon.com
