    What I loved are "The Hunger Games" and "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins. They are both in the same series, and the third book, "Mockingjay" comes out August 24th.

    They are seriously AMAZING! Once you start reading you can't put it down! It combines love, friendship, family, betrayal, trust, death, and basically everything you can think of, and the outcome is a really awesome book that makes you think about it and keep reading it!

    Also last night I just finished the book "Before I Fall" by Lauren Oliver.

    It's a newer book, published in 2010 i think, but it's so good! It about this girl who was really popular, and mean kind of. One day she gets in a car crash and dies, and the next thing she knows she is in her room, and she is reliving her last day again. She tries to solve the mystery of her death, and in the process becomes a better person. It made me cry through the whole book, but also has some funny parts in it!

    A really good book and there are so many lessons that are taught in it!

    "Hush, Hush" by Becca Fitzpatrick is great if you like fantasy! I'm not even a big fan of fantasy books, but I loved this book so much!! It's about fallen angels, and it's really good!

    "Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher is another great one! It's about Hannah Baker, a girl who commited suicide, and she delivers these tapes to 13 people her were responsible for her commiting suicide. It made me cry and have read it twice!

    It's a quick read, so if you need to read a book quickly for like a report or something, this one's good for it!

    And I started reading "Fallen" by Lauren Kate and it's pretty good so far!

    Heres some others:

    -Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson. A beautiful romance that will make you laugh and cry!

    -Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life (I forget the author) but It's such a cute book! Really really enjoyed it!

    -The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. I love all of Dessen's books, but this one was really great! AAAhhh... Such a good book! It's a romance.

    -The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson. Some people didn't like this book, but I absoloutly loved it! A girl gets in a car crash, then in a coma, and then she is saved, but doesnt remember anything. She tries to piece her life back together, and what she finds out comes as a shock to her. LOVED IT!

    -Get Well Soon (I forget the author) If you want a fun book to read in a little amount of time, this ones perfect! About a girl that gets checked into a mental hospital and meets a best friend, a boyfriend, and some nutjobs along the way.

    -Living Dead Girl (forget the author)This book will probably make you cry because its about a girl who gets kidnapped, raped, and kept as a "pet" by this one guy, Ray. He sexually and physically abuses her, and it's just a really sad, but great book.

    Heres some books I heard were good, but havent read yet.

    The Mortal Instrument Series, House of Night Series, Flowers in the Attic, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, Deadly Little Secrets and Deadly Little Lies, and Lonely Hearts Club.

    Hope I helped ;D

    Go to and search:

    "Lost from Atlantis Book 1" - Book 2 is going to be out in the next 6 weeks or so, Book 3 is written and in editing and will be out sometime in the next few months.

    "Death by MURDER David Lindsay" - you have to search that way or it won't come up. There's lots of sex in that one.

    "Super Spaghetti"

    And the best part is, for now, they're all FREE. You can read them with Kindle Unlimited - if you don't have Kindle Unlimited Google how to get a free trial, and all those books are free. They can be read online, with a free Kindle phone app, or on a Kindle.

    Eh....Well, I'm a Harry Potter fan, so of course I'll recommend those. But, I don't read just Harry Potter, I also like mysteries. I would suggest a book called Shakespeare's Secret, it is not very big, but it is worth a try. I also recommend a book by Roald Dhal, Matilda. Try and check out those books.

    Depends on what you like. I'm into the whole fantasy, romance thing so I'd recommend Wings by aprilynne pike, as you wish (don't remember who it's by, it's about a djinni), sea change (don't remember, about mermen)
