do you have a favourite book? a favourite series? tell us, but explain WHY you like them.

for me, I've always liked mysteries as they are interesting, they keep you wanting to know what's coming next, and they just are AWESOME.

LOVE the hardy boys, but Redwall was the BEST. but now the authors dead D:

I liked the hunger games book series... They never had any boring parts in them which is a thing I can't stand in books.

Lemme see, I don't really read too much (mostly only when I have to :P). But I've read some good classics:
Treasure Island, Robin Hood, etc.

Jules Verne is great too: Around the World in 80 Days, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Journey to the Center of the Earth.

I've read the Percy Jackson and Olympians series too, but haven't gotten around to reading some of the newest books.

Redwall is good but I got kinda bored after the third one. :P

Redwall was amazing.
I still haven't read the latest one, mainly because I know there'll be no more :C

Til we have faces by C.S. Lewis, Brave new world by Aldous Huxley, Watership Down by Richard Adams and The Once and future King by T.H. White are all great books.

Books like The Hunger Games are good, REALLY good... But not quite GREAT.
If you know what I mean.

I'm reading Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card right now, it's amazing so far.

And I can't wait til the library has a copy of Game of Thrones! I must read it if it's even half as good as the show.

Edwin Abbot's "Flatland"
Stephen Crane's "the Red Badge of Courage"

Well, although I had to read them for school, and had to by two of them, they turned out to be pretty good.
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
Night by Elie Wiesel
Marley & Me by John Grogan (Bought)
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton (Bought)

However, there are so many worse books, I can't even remember their names, I just know they were unenjoyable. One I do remember though is this one.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

UWCK! It was horrible. People, brace yourselves if you must read it for school. Take three days and just read it nonstop just to get it over with. Oh man it was so bad. Oh and you'll probably want to read it (Don't make me laugh) when you are 17 or older, it's a little graphic, and not in a blood and guts kind of way (Which is always the better way) just a little bit different.

I am a voracious book-worm, so I'll just list my favorite authors. Louis L'Amour, Clive Cussler, Arthur Conan Doyle, Patrick Robinson, Agatha Christie and William Hazlett Upson. My favorite themes are Westerns, Mysteries and Thrillers. As I have almost exhausted all these authors, I will have to find some more soon! And BTW, I can't stand books like The Great Gatsby, The Illiad or Moby D1ck.

I love the Kane chronicles by Rick Riodrian, because of the epic magic, action, drama, and the humor.

I also love this series called the Unwanteds. It has awesome story, and just has a whimsical feel to it. I would recommend The above books to magic lovers.

I also like this series called Wings of Fire.
Its about dragons and prophecies, and it has humor, action, and a very deep plot.
