Smile Absolute Favorite? - July 2nd 2011, 03:30 PM

Okay so I was just wondering who/what is everyone's favorite

Author

Series

Book (I mean of all time, you have to be hardcore here. (; )

For me personally the author is Ellen Hopkins, her books are so amazing and well written. They're very powerful, and so good. If anyone hasn't heard of her or read any of them, she writes in a different style than most, it looks like poetry stanzas, you get used to it haha (:

She's written books about SH, drug addiction, suicide, basically every really rough topic that we talk about here!

My favorite series is the Cirque Du Freak books by Darren Shan, I am normally not a big fan of vampire books but these came out long before the craze. They are so amazing and descriptive, I've read the 12 or 13 book series like three or four times since I was 10. They still captivate me as much as they did back then!

My favorite book, this was so difficult but it has to be "The house of the scorpion" by Nancy Farmer. It is such an amazing book, I've read it easily over 7 times. I'll go without it for a year or so, forget about it, go pick it up and fall back in love.

Anyways! Just wondering (:

Author - Has to be JK Rowling, she's just awesome <3

Series - The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. I'm not much into vampirey books either, but these are ah-maz-ing.

Book - eek, hardcore. Uhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmm..... It's so hard. BUT I'll have to say 'The Host' by Stefanie Meyer (yes, the Twilight one.) It's sosososososo good. I've only read it about 3 times, but each time it gets better and better. And I still cry at it :')

I started reading the Host and I could never make it through it!

I read reasonably far into it when I was at my cousin's house and I just could not even stick with it, it was weird!

My tastes change a lot so this won't be true forever, in fact I may not even have this same opinion next week

Author
I really love Melissa Marr, her books got me totally into folklore and things like that. It also helped me find a religion that I agree with most of, I'm still looking into it and I haven't really decided anything yet but still, it's awesome

Series
Since I picked Melissa Marr for favourite author I'm going to choose a different series here. I like Carrie Jones' Need series, it's got a bit of folklore in as well as lots of Norse mythology and that's my favourite kind. I'm so excited for the next book to come out aswell

Book
I'm aiming to choose different things for each of these sections otherwise Melissa Marr would just be in all three
I like the book Entangled by Cat Clarke, it was just a nice read



All I really need's a smile, smile, smile

Author-Ellen Hopkins or Neal Shusterman. Both of them have captivating plots and lovable characters. And it's amazing how every book they write can be different from the others.

Series-I really like the House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast, and the Skinjacker trilogy by Neal Shusterman. Both are very good reads.

Book-Just one? Hmmm...well, it changes frequently, but "Chain Mail" was pretty good, or "Unwind" by Neal Shusterman.

Alice: I've never read Neal Shusterman. What type of books does he write? If you like Ellen Hopkins too then I'll consider your opinion pretty valid (: haha.

Maddie-Neal Shusterman is usually categorized under Sci-Fi, but I find that most of his books are, in my opinion, more along the lines of fiction and fantasy. "Unwind" is one of his more popular books, it's about a world where there is no abortion, but after children reach a certain age, if parents decide they are not good for society, they can be "unwound", or essentially, there entire bodies are used in an organ donor type manner. It's a really good read.

I really love Sarah Dessen's books. <3 They're all really really really good.

My favorite book of all time though is The Summer I Turned Pretty. I'm pretty sure it's by Jenny Han. or something along those lines... haha.

God, I find it incredibly hard to pick favorite books. Idk why. But I really like Augusten Burroughs. He's hilarious. My favorite book is probably The Real Question by Adrian Fogelin. It just spoke to me, even though it didn't use especially flowery language or anything. And as for series, I'd have to say Harry Potter--I'm not really one for reading actual series of books.

Okay, if I really had to pick, it would probably be:

Author - Jodi Picoult. I can't get enough of her writing.

Series - Harry Potter. Need I explain?

Book: Aimee, by Mary Beth Miller. I've read it quite a few times now.


paper is dead without words,
ink idle without a poem,
all the world dead without stories,
without love and disarming beauty.
