I love the stories that reel you in, within the first paragraph. A good page-turner that you never want to put down. Ones that always leave you guessing what's going to happen next. I haven't discoved a prefence to point of view yet. I really like the stories that have something paranormal in them. I've read things like A certain slant of light, cirque du freak series, Twilight Saga, The Water mirror, Touch the Dark, Sunshine, Elsewhere, Everworld, the blue blood series, The Harry Dresden Flies, The Dragon's Keep, ect. I also like the books where the main character doesn't what they are capable of yet. But that seems like a repeating theme to alot of books.
I'm still trying to find that book that makes me say,"Wow!", the one that you get emotionally attached to. Any sugguestions?

Pride and Prejudice, no paranormal but it does reel you in from the first paragraph,
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters" (first paragraph)
Give it a try, it might not seem like something you would like at first but I think you would enjoy it and it doesn't take long to read.

The Mortal Instrument Series
-City of Bones
-City of Ashes
-City of Glass
This series definitely reels you in and the characters are awesome and they are definitely one of a kind. If you liked Emmett in Twilight then you'll love Jace one of the the main characters and his and Clary's romance cause there are some shockers in the first book about their relationship that you'll never believe what you just read!!
The Morganville Vampire series
-Dead Girls Dance
There are 4 more books in the series and the seventh is coming out in November. These are a quick read but they're really good and the characters have extremely different personality,but they all fit together and if read these make sure you try to get a few at a time or the next in the series before you finish the one your reading cause the author will leave you HANGING!!!

The Pretty Little Liars are a "tribrid" (a mix of 3 distinct "things", in this case, book genres)-Gossip Girl (posh girl fiction), suburbia (fiction), and suspense (fiction). It's a book series that dials up the tension and doesn't stop until the end.
Artemis Fowl (the series) kicks in and doesn't stop until the end.
The Gemma Doyle trilogy is a true mix of suspense, romance, Victoriana, magic, and coming-of-age, and it's not a flop.
Hope this helps.

1. The Private series by Kate Brian is a very good romance mystery series,
2. When it happens by Susan Colasanti,
3. Deadly Little Secretby Laurie Stolarz
4. Amatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky(this story is so funny i could not put it down i had to force myself to go to sleep. it is a little sexual at times so if your not into that then this is not the story for you.)
5. cracked up to be by Courtney Summers (again is funny but some sexual content.)
6. Perfect Chemistry. (i forget who it is by. but it is great its about a popular girl and a gang member and how they fall in love.)
7. Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz.
Masquerade by Melissa De La Cruz
Revelation by Melissa De La Cruz
8. Be more Chill by Ned Vizzini (this is a great story by it has alot of harsh language, sex, and drug use)

A book that I recommend is the book "Stuck in Neutral" its a spine tingilling book about a 14 teen-year-old kid that can't move or can't speak, but can hear what everyone is saying and has a really good memory. One day he hear that his day is planning to kill him. He tells you his life story and that in the past what his dad would do with his brother and sister. But at the end it leaves you hanging.
