Has anyone read any really good books lately? Anything you think other people should read? : )

A Tale Dark And Grimm! Its really interesting... XD but it's not very long, so if you like long books, you probably wouldn't like it that much.

I've read lots of good books lately, but it depends what other people like. xD
I won't say I failed a thousand times, I'd say I discovered thousand ways that can cause failure.

LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS. xD

If you're a fan of Eragon series, then you must know that the latest one is out. Inheritance. It is the most awesome book I have read lately. =D
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.

I agree with Cookie. The Inheritance by Christopher Paolini is the fourth book from The Inheritance Cycle series. I think that book (and the series.) is a must read.
If I were to have a super power, it would be to time-travel, so that I could turn back time, and erase your very existence.

The Dark Heavens / Journey To Wudang series by Kylie Chan. A must for any urban fantasy / mythology lover. The series is especially notable by its strong female characters. In stories like these, they are usually portrayed as air-head damsels in distress.

Ashes - Ilsa J. Bick. OMG it was so awesome. Read it if you like apocalypse-y stuff :P

And Crank - Ellen Hopkins. It's written all in free verse and about the effect of drugs on a 17 year old girl's life..

If you've read Harry Potter, you've read the best. *nods*

Also, try the Secret Series by Pseudonymous Bosch. If you like comedy and mystery, you'll enjoy it.

The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett seems pretty old, but it still knocks the house down!

Hunger Games is so obsessing!
The Maze Runner is also awesome!

Amelia Atwater-Rhodes Demon in My View and Shattered Glass.

(Demon in My View is sort of a follow up to In The Forests of The Night. The summary, straight from the back of the book, is:
Jessica isn't your average teenager. Though nobody at her high school knows it, she's a published author. Her vampire novel Tiger, Tiger has just come out under the pen name Ash Night. Jessica often wishes she felt as comfortable with her classmates as she does among the vampires and witches of her fiction. She has always been treated as an outsider at Ramsa High.

But two new students have just arrived in Ramsa, and both want Jessica's attention. She has no patience with overly friendly Caryn, but she's instantly drawn to handsome Alex, a cocky, mysterious boy who seems surprisingly familiar. If she didn't know better, she'd think Aubrey, the alluring villain from Tiger, Tiger had just sprung to life. That's impossible, of course; Aubrey is a figment of her imagination. Or is he?)

Shattered Mirror is my favorite, though. The summary, again straight from the back of the book, is:

Sarah Vida is a witch and a vampire hunter — and a loner. Christopher Ravena is a vampire trying to pass as a normal high school student who wants to know Sarah better. Drawn to him despite her better judgment, Sarah’s forced to admit that there’s room for gray in her otherwise black-and-white world of good versus evil — until she meets Nikolas, Christopher’s twin and one of the most hunted vampires in history.

Anyone that likes fantasy would DEFINITELY love any of Amelia's books. Those two just happen to be on my shelf.
Once you did something for me, more meaningful than the greatest of deeds, you held me in your arms and let me cry.

I recently read Peter and the Starcatchers. It's like the back story of Peter Pan- how he can fly, where Tinkerbell came from, how Hook lost his hand, and why the heck they're all in Neverland in the first place. The authors use some really unique ideas, so it's not the same old Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust that you've heard about. (Hint- the main villan isn't Hook, although he is a villan.)
There are five books in the series, with hopefully more on the way. If you like swashbuckling high-seas adventures or just a good, exciting read, then the Starcatcher Series is the series for you!
Open the gates and seize the day! Don't be afraid and don't delay.

To die would be an awfully big adventure.

I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
