Need a new Series to read.. Ideas anyone.. ??

Loved everything about the Twilight Series

 

Liked the Hunger Game Series

(Love the characters, but the reading was a little slow at times - the first half of the last 2 books, dragged out to me. Loved the second hate of them though.)

 

Hated the Herry Potter Series

 

So my question is... Anyone have some ideas for another Series for me to read ???

 

Tried Witches & Wizards and just couldn't get through the 1st book.. :smileysad:

 

Thanks..

Hi! I will recommend:

 The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare

 The Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross (thought only the first book is out)

& A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin.

How about another trilogy with a stong female lead?

I read the Hunger Games simply to be able to speak on it as someone who read it. I didn't care for it, at least not in the way most of the people I talked to seemed to. I kept hearing how it was such a great story, very empowering for a girl... I didn't get that from it at all. But from the Trylle trilogy, yes, I got that. I may be missing the mark for your tastes, but I still recommend these books by Amanda Hocking.
A little bit of magic, but nothing on the Potter scale... lols of struggle, much of it being a personal battle for the lead... a bit of romance... and a little more than a bit of coming of age, or coming into one's own.

I'll also recommend the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead and the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.

 

I love the Mara Dyer books by Michelle Hodkin. The third and final book comes out next year.

I've written a Christian mystery/adventure called Lost in the Woods: A Bible Camp Mystery. It's the first in  a new series of Bible Camp Mysteries about a group of 10 to 16 year old boys who set off into the Florida backwoods for back-to-nature retreats. They're relatively inexperienced, so they're in for some big surprises.

 

In Lost in the Woods, a 13-year-old camper disappears in the middle of the night! When a hurricane takes an unexpected turn for the Gulf Coast, they must find him in a hurry. It's tough going though, because more than half of the campers succumbed to food poisoning!

 

The book is headed for the B&N Store, but in the meantime it is available from Smashwords at 99 cents. You can get it at: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/274958

 

Please feel free to contact me with your feedback! Thanks.

I hope no one minds my adding my books to this list. :smileyhappy:

Cloud Nine (A Paranormal Romance of the Guardians of Man) 

 

What happens when a Guardian Angel actually hates you?

What if you did nothing more than fall in love?

What if they have the ability to make you give up?
