"Wendy Everly knew she was different the day her mother tried to kill her and accused her of having been switched at birth" - Quote from the book"

My favourite book is by Amanda Hocking, and she wrote series - The Trylle series. The first book is called Switched, the second is called Torn and the third is Ascend.

I love these books because it can relate to people who always felt different in their own lives, and maybe one day it can take you on a great big adventure, meeting hot guys and having powers that can possibly change a portion of the world.

I recommend that you read it, it's addictive!

If you haven't read the A Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones books) then you should definitely read them!

I also really enjoyed the following books :
Hunger Games series - Suzanne Collins
Wicked Lovely series - Melissa Marr
Divergent series - Veronica Roth

If you're looking for a good way to find new book quickly then I'd suggest making a GoodReads account if you haven't already, I find all my books on there

Here's my profile on GoodReads of all the books I've read and ratings/reviews of them - https://www.goodreads.com/review/lis...ara?shelf=read
Hope this helps you find some good books to read

I pretty much always have book suggestions, so let's see how it goes.

My first suggestion is anything by Philippa Gregory. I haven't personally read any of her works, but my sister (whose opinion is usually pretty reliable) really likes her. From what I understand she writes a lot of historical fiction.

I also really like the Sweep/Wicca (depending on where you live) series by Cate Tiernan. They're fantasy, easy to get through, and really quite addictive. I read the first book in almost a single sitting and bought the rest as soon as I could find them.

I'm assuming you've probably already read it, given you said you like sci-fi, but if you haven't you definitely need to read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the books that follow it, by Douglas Adams. Can't recommend them highly enough.

I'd also recommend anything by Terry Pratchett, if you like some comedy thrown in with your fantasy. I've only read a few of them but I've yet to come across any I don't like.

You could try The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, which is young adult urban fantasy type stuff. I've only read the first three but I found them enjoyable and pretty easy to read. The movie adaptation of the first book, released earlier this year, was also reasonably good (although not terribly true to the book).

Finally, one of my all-time favourites: the Tomorrow series by John Marsden. It's Australian, so I'm not sure where you are or how easily you'll be able to get a hold of it, but I really love them. The basic premise is that a group of teenagers go camping, and when they come back they realise that Australia has been invaded; it's all about their attempts to at first stay alive, and then make a contribution to the war effort. It's not all action, though, and there's a lot of character development and themes which most people will be able to relate to.

Okay, I think that's it for now. Happy reading!

The Borrowers series - Mary Norton (you have probably seen the film, but it's a very different story)
The Immortals series - Alyson Noel
Artemis Fowl series - Eoin Colfer
Inkheart Trilogy - Cornelia Funke
The Thief Lord - Cornelia Funke
There's probably loads I can't think of right now, but that'll do for the moment.

I just finished reading the book Divergent by Veronica Roth and it is pretty good. It might be something worth looking into. It is a trilogy so it should keep you busy for a while.
