I started Good Omens a few days ago, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, on Shannon's (Ally Kat) recommendation, and it's amazing so far. I'm about 100 pages in, and usually that would take me a lot longer than it has with the kind of schedule I'm running on XD

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. If you love her writing, you won't be able to put this down.

Willows: Haven by Hope Collier. Another great book, an aspiring young author :D

The Arielle LaRue series. ♥

Aaaaaaaaaand The Immortals isn't so bad. If you don't mind the predictability of it, and the slightly cliche romance, go right ahead. The plot is original, though. :)

This user will debate you about how important Jean Valjean is (acceptable answer: very), and the distinction between 'antagonist' and 'villain' and how the terms apply to Javert and the Thenardiers.

The Merlin Conspiracy by Diana Wynne Jones is pretty good. It's quite funny and the plot is very good. :D

Reading 'Holes' by Louis Sacher.
'Tis in an amazing book, with a good moral, by the looks of it (I always read the back 2 pages of a book before reading.. >:3)..

Inkheart, Inkspell and Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke.(I read this huge version with all three of them in one)Such a nice book, it makes me want to learn German and read the original.I love the quotes and the little drawings.
Has anyone read the Dune books? (I'm trying to read more sci-fi on that note any sci-fi reccomendations people?)

Everyone old enough to handle sex and violence needs to go out and get A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Right now. It's the first book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, and it's so good. I'm only halfway through it but it's absolutely riveting and I'm getting through it far more quickly than I do most things because I just want to know what happens :awesome:

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green was heartbreaking, and I loved it so much. I reccomend it to everyone who asks.
I also liked Doctor Who: The Coming of the Terraphiles. It was quite nice. :)

It's like Trouble, but with many a variation.

I am currently reading Alex Rider: Scorpia Rising (the last one) I find it very well written, and has totally knocked out my sense of all the books being the same, this is much different, I think. :3

A Dance with Dragons. Fifth book in A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) by G.R.R Martin. One of my favorite books ever, even though I would bet my parents wouldn't want me reading it.

I have to say, GRRM is the best at writing many, believable characters and a very organic universe. The violence and sex is a plus.

@ Artifical Asian Well, it's going to take a while. Took me a few months the first time. :( In the meantime... I'm going to start a thread. I'll try to keep spoilers up though.
