What Book Would You Recommend For Me?

Hi!

Here is some (hopefully) helpful info:

23 year old female

Update:

**It doesn't have to be a series. They just last longer. One great stand alone book would be just fine.

    Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

    *The Golden Lily

    *The Indigo Spell

    *The Fiery Heart - releases November 19, 2013

    Note: This is the spin off to Vampire Academy and features Sydney, Adrian, Eddie and Jill as the main characters.

    The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver

    *Soul Thief

    *Forgiven

    *Foretold

    Note: This series has it all - kickass heroine, hero with a heart of gold and a plot that will keep your head spinning. I'm just bummed that it's ended already. But it's easily one of my favorite paranormal series, and the characters are some of my most favorite of all time.

    Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

    *Spark

    *Spirit - releases May 28, 2013

    Note: This series is about the Merricks - four brothers who get into tons of trouble because they can control the elements. This is one addicting series, and I'm totally in love with Gabriel! I would suggest that you read the short story, Elemental, first because it's a prequel to Storm. It can be read in the paperback copy of Storm, or bought as an ebook.

    Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

    *Through the Ever Night

    Note: This is a really great sci-fi dystopian series. Aria, a dweller from a pod city where everything is controlled and life is lived virtually, gets into some trouble when an Outsider breaks his way into Reverie. It's such a great series and I totally adore the romance. And I LOVE Roar so much! He's one of my favorite secondary characters ever.

    Cinder by Marissa Meyer

    *Scarlet

    Note: This is basically a sci-fi/dystopian retelling of Cinderella. I enjoyed reading it and I especially loved the sci-fi twist, but at times it could be a little meh. I am still looking forward to reading the next one however.

    Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

    *Siege and Storm - June 4, 2013

    Note: I read this last summer and it was INCREDIBLE. Definitely one of my favorite books of 2012. Alina is such an awesome heroine. I loved her so much. I won't say anymore though because this is one of those books you really shouldn't know too much about before reading. But it was so amazing. I can't wait for the next one!

    Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

    *Magic Study

    *Fire Study

    Note: One of my favorites. :) Yelena is such a strong heroine. I don't know about you, but she's the only character (female or otherwise) who learns how to use a bo staff. Pretty cool. And I really loved the romance in this as well. I think I may even have to reread it eventually.

    Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

    *Dark Triumph

    Note: Love. This. Series. I mean, come on. Assassin nuns? It doesn't get much cooler than that! Grave Mercy is French history with fantasy and magic tied in. I loved all the female badassery these books consist of. There is quite a lot of political intrigue in book #1 (not quite as much in bk #2), and I realize that might bore some people, but I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this series. I'm totally dying for the 3rd book!!

    Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

    *Days of Blood and Starlight

    Note: I just LOVE reading anything by Laini Taylor because she's an awesome writer. DoS&B involves angels and wishes. I'm excited to read the next one!

    Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

    *Hallowed

    *Boundless

    Note: I really liked Unearthly since it was a unique twist on angel mythologies and whatnot, but I don't love that there's a love triangle. I think that's why I haven't gotten around to reading Hallowed yet. But still a good series that gets plenty of decent reviews.

    Chime by Franny Billingsley

    Note: One of my favorite books. As soon as I finished, I wanted to flip it back around and start it again. I really loved it. Hope you will too. :) I believe there are some spin-off books planned as well, though no word on their release dates yet.

    The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell

    *The Springsweet

    *The Elementals - releases June 4, 2013

    Note: The Vespertine was an interesting mix of historical and paranormal elements and it was just so cool. I really loved it. Haven't read The Springsweet yet, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.

    Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

    *Star Cursed - releases June 18, 2013

    Note: I was completely hooked by the first chapter. Totally fun read if you like witches.

    The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

    *Desires of the Dead

    *The Last Echo

    *Dead Silence - releases April 16, 2013

    Note: I read TBF recently and I loved it! I absolutely adored the romance, but it's also a suspenseful thriller with some paranormal stuff thrown in.

    If you're interested in reading some adult paranormal romance stuff:

    *The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward

    *The Succubus series by Richelle Mead (if you haven't already read that)

    *Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill

    *The Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost

    From the list of books you have mentioned I read and enjoyed :

    Harry Potter

    Game of Thrones Series

    Vampire Academy

    The Hunger Games Series

    That is why I am recommending "The Host" for you. Please do give it a chance. I know a lot of people don`t want to try reading a Stephenie Meyer`s book. But I can honestly say it is her best work. I loved it. It is definitely one of my top 5 books.

    A summary(I took somewhere from yahoo answers because I suck at it): It's a science fiction novel with an Invasion of the body snatchers type of story mixed with romance. Aliens have come to Earth and are being implanted in the human's brains, thus taking over their bodies. The humans have pretty much lost the battle. One alien, Wanderer is implanted in the brain of one human survivor, Melanie. But Wanderer soon finds that Melanie's consciousness is not fading away as she is supposed to.

    It has been made into a movie. At first I was excited. And at the same time worried how it would be translated into a movie. Because quite a bit of the book takes place inside the main characters head(done beautifully if I may say so).

    I am afraid they have butchered the movie. From what I have heard. Please do not watch the movie before you have read the book.

    I don't think I've seen anyone recommend The Wheel of Time series. Its my favorite fantasy series ever. There are 13 books to the series and each one ranges from 500-900 pages. I don't really know how to summarize this, so I'm just going to say to go buy it and read it.

    Landwhig's Pride-5th token of life. a new ebook I found on amazon and read twice already.

    On the cover is a green sword.I know this may turn people of, but the lead character is a black girl.

    The book is in a class by itself. I can't stop sharing it.

    You would really like rhe lorien legacy (the I am #4 books) or a trilogy called matched which is a dystopian romance very similar to the hunger games.

    Source(s): Read them my self

    I really enjoyed "The Cat Who" series, even though it doesn't match your genre request. It's a detective series, and no romance. Just a cat and a retired journalist.
