All genres? Wellps, I could either give you one hundred books of the English Classics. Or, how about you check out the Dewy System?

Reading a book is like going on a treasure hunt. But here are 5 of my most favourite Classics:

The Time Machine by H.G Wells
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
An Old Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott
The Lamplighter by Maria Cummins
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

There's a ton of books I can suggest, but my favorite series right now is Divergent. It's only three books & it keeps your attention so good for busy people.

Hey Charlie!

I could recommend about a hundred books, but I'm really not sure what you're looking for. Maybe you could tell us some of the books you've read/enjoyed? Or even any particular things you like (such as having a male main character, or involving a love triangle, or having some time travel)?

I just want some more details so I can be more specific with my answer. Otherwise I'd just be listing off a bunch of my favourite books and hoping one of them hit the mark.

Depends what you're looking for! I've heard The Fault In Our Stars is a really good sad love story type thing, i haven't gotten around to reading it though. I didn't think Divergent was super amazing but it was definitely good and a lot of people like it. I also loved The Giver and all the other books in that series (I think there's 4 total). My all-time favorite books are Ender's Game, The Phantom Tollbooth, and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (don't read that unless you are willing to be seriously freaked out!!!)

If you start with reading the Classics, you will gain a wonderful insight into the most talented authors to appreciate reading as a grand hobby. One novel I'd recommend you is The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. It's a most engaging read most popular among us young people, the book full of teenage angst and alienation. I've read it twice and doubt it will be the last time. The Catcher in the Rye is unforgettable.

Another great author is Mark Twain, so pen-named by Samuel Langhorne Clemens is American and a great humorist. Read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn; you'll really enjoy that!

Im currently obsessed with Jonothan Safran Foer- reading Extremely Close and Incredibly Loud which is an amazing book, and good if you need a cry!

If you're into Fantasy, the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker series is amazing. It's a duology by Karren Miller

For Science Fiction, Terry Pratchett's Discworld books

Chris Carter rocks the Thriller/Mystery genre. Each of his books starring Robert Hunter are amazing, but amazingly gory.

For Historical, go for the Book Theif. Ergh, I love it so!

A Paranormal Romance favourite is Hush, Hush. It's awesome (and Patch )

Contemporary: The Eyre Affair!

I hope this helps, and try not to stress too much over the course work!
