Know of any good books?
I'm almost done with my first year of college, and I need a couple good books to read for the summer. I like Nicholas sparks kinds of books and the pretty little liars series was pretty good too. But I want to find some other good books. Any help?

My Blog: Best Books (according to me and many)
#1o: His Dark Materials series by Phillip Pullman: Young Lyra Belacqua tries to prevent kidnapped children from becoming the subject of gruesome experiments; helps Will Parry — a boy from another world — search for his father; and finds that she and Will are caught in a battle between the angelic forces of the Authority and those gathered by her rebel uncle, Lord Asriel.
#9: The Book Thief by Marcus Zusac: Trying to make sense of the horrors of World War II, Death relates the story of Liesel — a young German girl whose book-stealing and storytelling talents help sustain her family and the Jewish man they are hiding, as well as their neighbors.
#8: The Giver by Louis Lowry: In the future, society has eliminated discord, converting everyone to "Sameness." In three linked stories, Jonas, destined to hold memories of the time before Sameness; Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg; and healer Matty must discover the truth about their society and restore emotion, meaning and balance to their world.
#7: The Hobbit by J. R. R Tolkien: Bilbo Baggins, a respectable, well-to-do hobbit, lives comfortably in his hobbit hole until the day the wandering wizard Gandalf chooses him to take part in an adventure from which he may never return.
#6: A Catcher in the Rye by J D. Sallinger: With the author's death, the classic novel about young Holden Caulfield's disillusionment with the adult world and its "phoniness" will only rise in popularity — and controversy, since it is a favorite target of censors, who often cite profanity and sexual references in their efforts to ban the book.
#5: A Hitchtaker’s guide to Galaxy- A trilogy in Four Parts by Douglas Adams: In this collection of novels, Arthur Dent is introduced to the galaxy at large when he is rescued by an alien friend seconds before Earth's destruction, and embarks on a series of amazing adventures, from the mattress swamps of Sqornshellous Zeta to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
#4: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few more years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at the Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten
#3: To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee: This Pulitzer Prize-winning novel from author Harper Lee explores racial tensions in the fictional "tired old town" of Maycomb, Ala., through the eyes of 6-year-old Scout Finch. As her lawyer father, Atticus, defends a black man accused of rape, Scout and her friends learn about the unjust treatment of African-Americans — and their mysterious neighbor, Boo Radley.
#2: The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins: In the ruins of a future North America, a young girl is picked to leave her impoverished district and travel to the decadent Capitol for a battle to the death in the savage Hunger Games. But for Katniss Everdeen, winning the Games only puts her deeper in danger as the strict social order of Panem begins to unravel.
#1: Harry Potter Series series by J K Rowling: The adventures of Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived, and his wand-wielding friends at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry, Ron and Hermione must master their craft and battle the machinations of the evil wizard Voldemort and his Death Eaters. The best teen book series written of all time

Well here's 2 suggestions... If you're into book series try the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. It has about 4 books all together and is really good. And if you don't like it or can't find a good book to read, I use this app on my tablet called Wattpad. Its a good app for people who love to read and write stories from undiscovered and published authors.Source(s): www.wattpad.com
