Warriors series.
Especially if you like cats. Warriors a series from cats' points of view and about living in 'clans' hunting, fighting and prophecies. can be quite gruesome but it's obsessive.

Warrior cats series should keep you going for a while as the 23rd book of the series is about to be out and there are also 4 field guides, a handful of manga and 4 special editions.

"Looking For Alaska" or "Paper Towns" by John Green are amazing books.

I suggest browsing through the "What i'm reading now" thread to get some more ideas!

Anything by Jodi Picoult is amazing, but her work can be heart-wrenching too. If you decide to pick one up, I would recommend The Pact. It's a great introduction to her work.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series is also incredible. I've only read the first one, but I'm dying to get my hands on the next two.


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

My friend has read the crank series and he said they were really good, also, Lord of the rings is amazing if you haven't already read it.

I've read it too.
There's not too many I haven't unfortunately.
But the Crank series is one I haven't.

Faith and The Condition by Jennifer Haigh are both pretty good reads. I also really liked The Unit by Ninni Holmquist.

I am re-reading the I heart series by Lindsey Kelk and it is hilarious!!
Match Me If You Can- Susan Elisabeth Philleps
They are more towards the romantic sides, but are truly hilarious! They will definitely make you laugh A LOT!!

Is it good? I've read the back cover of it and it sounded excellent. (:
I just read 13 reasons why and it was pretty good. I recommend it.

It's briliant! I sat down to just read a few pages after I first got it (to get a feel for the wrighting style) and I ended up not being able to put it down for seven chapters, and that was only because I was half asleep by then.

Those who save us is about the holocaust

Also you can go onto amazon and type say 'book thief' and then books that have to do with that subject i.e. the Holocaust will pop up under recommended reading.
