Ok, so I hope I didn't repeat anything, but maybe I did.  Sorry if so!  :smileyhappy:  It seems weird that some of these hadn't been mentioned yet, so I probably just skimmed this thread too quickly and missed them. 

 

I also wanted to note that I have personally read and can recommend all of these titles.  They're definitely old favorites from my past reading and I hope they can become new favorites for some of you that haven't read them yet.  :smileyhappy:

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

So far the best book I have read is the Maximum ride series. It has like over 100 chapters per book, but they are only like three pages each so it never drags and it never gets boring!!! Its about these genetically modified bird kids on the run from mad scientists!!! Its super duper intense and way funny!!! I love it!!!!:smileyhappy:


conquer it like a bunny conquers a stack of carrots!!!

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

I saw Hush Hush up on the list, but I didn't see her second book in the series.....I was impressed with the first one and the second one didn't disappoint me.....her style of writing is awesome for the teen genre and I am always blown away with the way her characters seem to be so real to me.....if I have missed someone posting this, I apologize....I have looked over the posts, but after a time they all seem to all run together!!

I love A Time for Dancing, I thought The Farther You Run wasn't as great as the first book. A Time for Dancing has been one of my favorite books for over 5 years. Thanks for adding it.

Crescendo is on page ten but it's fine it was a good book so it deserves to be on spotlight in your post. Thanks for reminding us of it. B&N even did a first look on this title so some of us got it before it even came out last year

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

I personally think the Twilight, Night World, and Percy Jackson and The Lighting Thief are the best series of books. Everyone that reads this please just at least red the twilight and Night world series.
