  1. This thread is for books that you like, and others may like.

    You can post different kinds of books, please state the kind, like fiction, nonfiction, romantic, adventurous, ect.
    Please no very detailed adult novels.
    Do not criticize others preferences, respect them and what they like, don't judge the book by its cover.... or title. *punpunpunpun*

    Please put the target age group for your book, and maybe give a short summary. Thanks!

  2. Green Eggs and Ham is my all time favorite book. It's fiction :p By Dr. Seuss. I read it so much as a kid that I have it mostly memorized. My husband also bought it for me once I got to North Carolina. :)
  3. The Hunger Games.
    The Hunger Games Is about Katniss, the skilled hunter, that volunteers for her sister in the Hunger Games, a battle to the death about the capitols power. Age group: Tween-Teen
    If you haven't read this book ^ Well you have missed out a lot, its a 3 part series.

    The Host.
    This must be my favorite book so far.
    It is about an alien race of Souls that take over Earth and other planets.
    They are much more advanced in the ways of space travel and medicine, they take their hosts bodies and get rid of their minds. In this story you will follow the story of Melanie/Wanderer and their struggle to survive together.
    Age group: Tween-Teen
    This book is a romantic sci-fi type of book. It is by the same author of Twilight.
    Author: Stephenie Meyer

  14. Hm…
    The Seems was a pretty good book series when I was in sixth grade. Still pretty good concept.
    Department 19 is a pretty epic series too…
    Perks of Being a Wallflower (contains mature content) was a great book.
    Michael Crichton's books are all pretty good. :)

  15. As an avid lover of books, it is hard to decide for sure.
  16. I just thought of something. Could we add Manga we've read? It's a book. Well, kinda like comic books but they tell stories and you have to read.
  17. The Hobbit ._.
    Its about Bilbo Baggins (a hobbit), who travels with the Dwarves and Gandalf to fight Smaug the dragon and recover the treasure he hides :)
    I think most of us know about it, its a really good book. :D

  18. I've read some good ones here are a few:
    Unwind: Sci-Fi, it takes place in present day and it is about abortion being outlawed but when your kids turn 13 you can choose to "Unwind" them and have all their organs and limbs donated to people in need.
    Maximum Ride: Sci-Fi and Adventure, It is about 6 kids who all have special powers and who all had avian (Bird) DNA grafted into them when they were embryos so now they have wings and can fly.
    Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Adventure and Fiction, It is about a kid who is actually the son of the greek god Poseidon.
  19. Ender's Game
    by Orson Scott Card
    In the future, Earth is attacked by an alien race, but barely manages to fend off the first wave. In anticipation of the second wave, the nations of Earth send their brightest children to Battle School, where they learn to be military commanders. This book follows Andrew "Ender" Wiggins, a particularly gifted boy, as he rises through the ranks of Battle School, and learns the truth about the war.
    This book is recognized as one of the greatest science fiction books of all time. Also, it will be released as a movie November 1, 2013. So read it before it's cool!
