the percy jackson series makes me want to vomit..

the hunger games was boring

thirteen reasons why (jay asher)

    Cool I'm also 13!

    It wasn't until after i read the second book that i realized i hated Twilight.

    I should tell you my favorite series of all time. It's by far amazing and HUGE unpredictable plot twists. It's dark, mysterious and a page turner omg. Believe me-- i used to not really like to read but

    now i can't stop reading after this.

    The Mortal Instruments Series (going to be 6 books)

    The Infernal Devices (going to be 3 books)

    both by the same author and about the same except plots are way unique and the Infernal Devices is kind of like a prequel to The Mortal Instruments (TMI) because it takes place around 200 years before in London.

    I assure you, you will fall IN LOVE with the characters. JACE FTW! If ur a boy u'd still think that Jace is like THE COOLEST PERSON EVER OMG. He can even turn someone gay (not going to give away any spoilers but yeah)

    I'm right with you on the whole twilight thing I never was a fan. If you're like me and you love Harry Potter and Inkheart I bet you'll like The Gateway Chronicles by K.B. Hoyle. I just finished re-reading first and second books ("The Six" and "The Oracle") in preparation for the midnight release this fall. I'm so excited! Happy reading ( :

    the Bad Girls Don't Die series, by Katie Alender are VERY good. They're super natural, with a hint of romance and high school drama stuff. I powered through each book in 3 or 4 days. I highly recommend them.
