Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

I have never read the looking glass wars series. I own the first book but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. My friend has read the books though and she likes them and always goes out the day a new one in the series comes out to buy it. I hope this helped!

Please recommend books for me that are clean  no gratuitous explicit intimacy and no vulgar excessively crude  language,. I have read the immortals, the mortal instruments, fallen by Lauren Kate read and rereading the Twilight Saga books. So if someone could recommend books like these I would be glad and thankful...I am a bookworm.  I have also read the vampire academy books. I did not like vampire diaries or the blue bloods...I don't know why. I have just started shiver and I read the first book in the Nightworld series

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

Pretty sure I didn't see this book anywhere on the original list:

Heist Society 

 

This was a very fun, quick read...a welcome change from the usual paranormal stuff.

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

I recommend the Ann Rinaldi books. They're all historical fiction, and the ones I've read are all amazing. I have no doubt the rest of them are amazing too. I just bought another one day.

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

If I am reposting, I apologize, but scanning through this I did not see a link to a series of books that have been out since I was in high school (a very long time ago in a galaxy far far away...) and I am overwhelmed that they are back in the spotlight again...

 

The Vampire Diaries #1-2 

  The Vampire Diares is a GREAT series that I first read when the series initially came out over a decade ago.

I reccomend it to anyone who likes vampires and wants them a bit more nasty than the twilight sort (which  I like too, Im not a hater)

The internal struggle between the brothers Damon and Sefan are great and the books are nothing like the tv series (which I like too).

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

Fariequeene- most of LJ Smith's books are on the very botton of page 5. But I always enjoy people reminding us of things they loved to read. I have read that series before I thought the first two books (four stories) were good and then I just felt with the newer releases that the story got out of hand and it turned me off that series. I do really like her Night World series though, I also own her Secret Circle series but haven't read it yet.

Re: The Ultimate Book Recommendation List

I haven't read her newer stuff in regards to the series, because I like how it originally ended back in the day, I dont fault her for attempting to get more out of the series, but I am much fonder with the end of the last book.

I enjoyed the Secret Circle a great deal as well, I highly recommend it.
