Looking for a good book to read, any suggestions?

I am looking for a book to read and I really enjoy getting into them. I have read all the Twilight books, so please don't suggest them. I don't really like mushy love stories, but something with a little romance is fine. Recently I have read The Secret Life of Bees and The Mermaid Chair. Any suggestions would be helpful :)

    If you've read both of those books you'll really enjoy these!

    Here r reccomendations + descriptions so u know what it's about be4 u buy it or waste time trying 2 find it♥♥

    I reccomend Fallen by Lauren Kate♥...I love this book.

    It's a really great romance/action novel.

    Description:There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce--and goes out of his way to make that very clear--she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.

    Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick ♥

    Descripition: For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

    Wings by Aprilynne Pike

    Homeschooled Laurel begins public high school as a tenth grader when her adoptive parents move to LA., leaving behind the land that has been in her mother's family since the Gold Rush days. The many clues that Laurel is different (she is strictly vegan; sunlight seems to shine through her fair skin; she never gets cold; she craves the outdoors; she doesn't menstruate) culminate in a bump on her back growing to the size of a softball and blooming into a flower that has foot-long petals. Returning to her parents' land, she meets Tamini, a faerie to whom she is attracted, who tells her that she is not human, but rather is a plant or, more specifically, a faerie. David, her accepting and supportive classmate, tests her tissue and confirms that Tamini is right.

    The Luxe Series-Awesome romance♥A big, romantic tale of catty girls, dark secrets and windswept romance unfurls in this compulsively readable novel of late-19th-century New York City socialites. Elizabeth Holland, a prim and proper lady of old-money society, is betrothed to one man, though furtively loves another; Henry Schoonmaker, a debauched playboy who must marry Elizabeth or be disinherited; Diana Holland, Elizabeth’s younger sister who is in love with her fiancé; and Penelope Hayes, a member of the nouveau riche who will stop at nothing to win Henry’s affections.

    Perfect Chemistry by Simone E.(Good romance comedy)♥♥♥♥♥Tough guy Alex is primarily known by his classmates as a dangerous member of the Latino Bloods gang. He’s not exactly thrilled when Brittany Ellis, the school’s seemingly perfect beauty queen, is assigned as his lab partner—and the feeling is more than mutual. But Alex’s bravado works against him when he impulsively accepts a bet that he can get Brittany in the sack.

    How to Ruin my Teenage Life by Simone Elkles

    Amy Nelson Barak’s life is going wrong! Her mom got married and moved to the suburbs, and now they are going to have a baby. Amy moves in with her dad in Chicago and signs him up for an online dating service. His first four dates are that night . . .

    What else? Her dog Mutt impregnated her grumpy neighbor’s prized poodle, so Amy will actually have to get a part-time job to pay for half the veterinary bill.

    Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. It's a Norman Rockwell painting done in dark, mysterious tones about friendship between next door neighbors, relationships with fathers, books, libraries and a mysterious carnival that rolls into town in the middle of the night that changes everything that comes after it. Poetic. Bradbury's best.

    I like The Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix...also Malorie Blackman - Noughts and Crosses trilogy. To kill a mocking bird is good. Umm catcher in the rye by J.D salinger is great. Feeling sorry for Celia by jaclyn moriarty is funny. Hmmm lots of others out there, how old are you? Halfof a yellow sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie i liked. Exodus by Julie Bertagna too. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. The Lovely Bones is grim and gritty but very well written. Those are just my preferences though :)

    I highly recommend Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. The first book is called The Lighting Thief. A lot of people I know like it, and I've read it many times myself. It's about a boy named Percy Jackson who finds out that the Greek gods are living in modern day America.

    If you don't like that, then I suggest the Pendragon series by D. J. MacHale. It cusses a little, but it's really interesting and you can't put it down. The first book is called the Merchant of Death.

    And if you STILL don't like that, then I suggest Epic by Connor Kostick. It's a little sci-fi-ish but it's really, really good.

  • 1.A book called The F*** Up.

    It is fantastic. I have read it many times.

    2. The Blood Canticle- Anne Rice

    3. Susanne's Diary for Nicholas- James Patterson
