Re: I'm so bored with books lately! What should I read?

Yea, try "Exposing the Hidden Things" by Jerome Christopher King.  This book is perfect for those times when you're bored and need something to read...this one is pretty darn good.  You can actually get it here at Barnes&Noble ... i provided a link below.  I hope your passion for reading comes back as strong as it was.

You could try the Body of Evidence series by Christopher Golden and Rick Hautala.

It's about forensic pathologists and CSI type mysteries.

Re: I'm so bored with books lately! What should I read?

Its awesome to hear an actual teens view of The Host. All the reviews I have read are from an adults who havent read Twilight and I really didn't know if I wanted to read it (It takes the awrad for being on my tbr stack for the longest: 9 months).

Anywayz, I am not a fan of historical books but one I just recently finished and completely loved loved loved so much is O, Juliet. It was so incredible good. You should definately give it a try!!!

Re: I'm so bored with books lately! What should I read?

I think you should give the Fear Street series because trust me, they were made for people our age (definetly not for younger readers).

 

I would definently second Agatha Christie especially And Then There Were None. She always has suprise twists at the end.

 

One of my favorite books ever is The House Next Door by Richie Tankersley Cusick. Great ghost story full of suspense and romance (huge plot twist)

 

A Great series about witches (not really Wicca like the Sweep series) is the L.O.S.T series. Also Sign of the Crescent by the same author. Very romantic but not too suspenseful.

 

Gemma Doyle Series

 

and I guess I would try Stephen King, just to see if you like it (he is the king of Suspense as my friend would say)

"There would be little reason to lie down at night without the possibility of seeing things bigger and more amazing than the average day might bring about. Why pick up a pen or type on a keyboard if there's no imagination or wonder left to behold?"

I have to say that the second twilight movie was slightly better than the book..
