i need good books to read?
I plan on reading a lot this summer but every book on my bookshelf has been read. ):
Does can someone give me a list of good books that I can read?
Please no twilight, I have them. (not read yet, but I'm gonna read them.) Sorry twilight fans.
If it helps I'm 13 (7th grade) but I read on a high school reading level. So, I prefer books that are above 7th grade reading level because I get bored with them easily.
I don't really like fantasy books, or science fiction, but anything else I am willing to give a try.
Thanks a bunch.(:
also, I read harry potter.
and no the clique books.

It's Fantasy, but at least try to read the first Harry Potter book!
It's got Action, Romance, funny parts.
It's a 6th-7th grade reading level, I think... sorry.
But it's a truly amazing book, just ask some of the people on here, there are tons of fans!
Give it a try. Please?
It's about a boy who parents died when he was one years old and was sent to live with his cruel aunt, uncle and cousin. They made him sleep in a closet! One day he gets a letter inviting him to a wizard school. He learns that he is a wizard and that his parents were actually killed by a very dark wizard who is feared by most witches and wizards. The dark wizard also tried to kill Harry with the killing curse, but for some reason the killing curse didn't work on Harry and the Dark Wizard lost power! Harry's actually famous in the wizarding world. During his first year at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry, Harry sees that something sketchy is going on and soon faces the dark wizard that killed his parents!

I am also 13 and I just started reading the Jodi Picoult books, they are higher reading but they are really good and aren't difficult to read or anything. The first one I read was My sister's keeper since the movie just came out. I finished it last night and I am going to see the movie today. Her books have a Little bit of everything in them. Each chapter is from a different person's view so there is so much more to the book, it takes a little bit to get used to it at first since it is so different than most books though.

I don't know if you like suspense novels but Mary Higgins Clark has a bunch of books that you could read. She's been writing since the 80's I believe. Another good author is Mary Jane Clark. I've never been disappointed in any of her novels. Hope this helps.

Here's a list of book reviews: http://www.examiner.com/x-13594-Cleveland-Literatu...
Since you don't like sci-fi/fantasy, I'd suggest checking out the reviews of stuff by Christopher Moore or that of The Awakening. Good luck! :)
