Best books to read by the pool.?

I love to read while I tan and can't seem to find any good books. I'm 16 and love books that have forbidden love, ghosts, challenges, secrets, mysteries, and twists. Do you know of any that have at least 1 or more of these categories. Much apreciated. THANX!

    The Cassie Palmer series by Karen Chance has a sprinkling of ghosts, an interesting love setup, and is full of excitement and twists. It's a very fun series, great for beach reading.

    Try reading these books and series:

    I am Number Four (By Pittacus Lore)

    The Power of Six (Comes out in August)

    When the Mogadorians attacked Lorien, 9 young children and their guardians flee to Earth until it is safe enough to go back. But the Mogadorians are hunting them down, killing them in order of their numbers. John Smith is Number Four, living safely in Paradise, Ohio with Henri, his guardian. Or so he thinks. Follow Number Four in his adventures of getting his first powers, first girlfriend, first true friend, and his first encounter with the evil Mogadorians that went to earth to destroy him.

    The book is WAY better than the movie, and way diffrent! I gave it to my aunt to see what it was about, and she started reading it for over an hour in one sitting! It's awesome!

    Life as we Know it (Susan Pffefer)

    The Dead and the Gone

    This World we live in

    When a giant asteroid hits the moon, it knocks it out of orbit, causing food shortages, climate changes, and chaos on Earth.

    Beastly (By Alex Flinn)

    (More books by Alex Flinn) A kiss in Time


    Each of these books are modern day fairy tales- Beauty and the Best, Sleeping Beauty, and The Frog Prince.

    The Uglies series (Scott Westerfeld)





    In Tally's world, when you turn pretty, you get a special operation that makes you super model gorges. But when Tally's new friend, Shay, runs away to escape the operation, Tally has a choice- find Shay and turn her in, or never turn pretty, ever.

    Gone series by Micheal Grant





    In the blink of an eye, everyone over the age of 15 disappears, and a giant dome covers the entire city of kids. They must fight to survive, struggling with bullies, lack of food, and a mysterious monster hidden in a cave. And kids are getting powers- super speed, telekinesis, fire, etc. They are growing stronger by day. soon, the kids are choosing sides and wars are breaking out. Only this is different from previous wars- this time, it's freaks vs non-freaks, and there are no adults to stop it.

    Hush Hush (Becca Fitztpatirick)

    When Nora Grey meets a mysterious boy named Patch, she immediately doesn't like him. But when dangerous, terrifying things begin to happen to her, she has no choice but to turn to him for help. But could he be something even worse than she is imagining?

    That's all I can think of right now, but all of those books are AMAZING and I hope you have the chance to read them! I highly recommend them!

    PS. Sorry the summaries are a little vague... I was in a hurry ;)
