What book recommendations do you have?

Hey! I am looking for new books to read. I have reread all my current ones a million times.

I am interested in fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and things along those lines. For example I love Harry Potter, Night World, The Hunger Games, Circle of Three, Sweep, Evil Genius, Cirque Du Freak, Pendragon, Percy Jackson, and so on.

So if you are into any of those books or something similar, could you post the book name, author, and a short description of the books? (: That would be wonderful! Thank you so much!

Update:

Update 2:

Update 3:

It really helps a lot, Angelina. (: Thank you!

    The WICKED series (not the Broadway show) is pretty good and kind of similar to some of those. It's by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie. It's about three cousin who are draw together and discover that they are witches. The character are complex and realistic. It's a really great read but on the long side and are very detail oriented. So if your looking for an easy, only half paying attention read this isn't it. There are technically five books but the first two are bound together and the same with three and four. Highly recommend

    SCIENCE FICTION Everyone ignores sci-fi however actually that a few books are virtually part philosophy. Read Stranger in a Strange Land via Robert A. Heinlein, Prey via Michael Crichton, and 2001: A Space Odyssey or Rendevous With Rama via Arthur C. Clarke. Plus, I agree that Agatha Christie is a have got to-learn. After Shakespeare and the Bible, she has bought probably the most quantity of books global ever. Her first-rate are And Then There Were None, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Murder at the Orient Express

    There's a new book I really want to buy (but can't because I have too many books already and literally no room) is Miss Peregrines School for Peculiar Children. It just came out and is getting good reviews. I hear it is sort of like XMen because theses kids with special powers all attend a school to help them with their powers. What's unique about the book is the author collected vintage photos that all look sort of creepy (some are digitally altered) to illustrate the book. Looks like a good read!

    Ranger Apprentice by John Flannagan

    it takes place in Medieval Times and has war, adventure, a bit of fantasy and good humour. It's one of my favourite series along with Harry Potter ;) there are ten books in the series

    The Maze Runner

    incredible scifi adventure, really great read,t ehre is antoehr one called The Sorch Trials

    The Devouring

    a horror mystery about nightmares and being lost in ones mind with their inner msot fears

    Unwind

    Probably one of the best plot and character defined story i've read in a very long time. From three different peoples POV, it takes place int he future after the second civil war.

    All these books are way better than I can make them sound, I promise

    Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch- Con artist thieves are blackmailed into helping a madman all the while looking for a way to get the upper hand. This one starts out light but gets very dark by the end

    Imager by L.E. Modesitt Jr.- A painter learns that he has the "Imaging" talent. It follows him learning to control it while acting as bait to those who want imagers dead

    Foundation by Mercedes Lackey- Focuses on an ex-slave named Mags who is being trained to be a Herald in the newly created Herald Collegium.

    Well, my favorite authors at the moment are:

    James Patterson

    ~Maximum Ride Series --- About a group of kids that are 98% human, 2% bird. (Yes, they can fly) It's pretty much about the characters saving the world..yeah...it may sound a little weird, but they're really good books.

    Michael Crichton

    ~Ehh...anything. ----His books aren't the newest, but they're good. My favorite is Jurassic Park, I think you'd like that.

    Read Cat's Cradle. It's a science fiction novel that has some real depth to it.
