What are some good books I can read?

Please recommend a book. It can be a common HS book or a series. I've realized that I've barely read any books in my high school life. BTW, I'm a boy so no vampire series.

And please no books that gives you headaches! No difficult philosophy and such. =)

    Read the Gone series by Michael Grant. They are so well written and I can't ever put them down!

    1984 or Brave New World. Two of the few works of fiction I've actually enjoyed.

    Green Eggs and Ham
    In case you don't know, it's by Dr. Seuss.

    Gone series by Michael Grant. It's like a modern day Lord of the Flies except the kids are trapped in a town, not a forest.

    The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is my favorite book. It's good if you like World War II (particularly the German side of things). And, I recently finished A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. The Kite Runner, his other book, is really good too

    Edit: I've read Gone too! It was a really good book. Parts of it really creeped me out!

    ^^Yeah, sweet. :cool: My bother and I both love the series.

    ^You should read the other two that are out now, Lies and Hunger.

    The Twilight books are good.
  • BryDeeCBryDeeC Posts: 1,471Registered User Junior Member
    ^^Yea, I've been meaning to check those out. They're always checked out from the library, and I'm broke right now. Lol.
  • biovballbiovball Posts: 779Registered User Member
    Oh and the Hunger Games series is good too

    The grammar in Brave New World was so distracting and annoying. 1984 was good though.

    John Green Books are good.

    @boston1993: I agree about Brave New Worl, it got on my nerves.

    @OP: The Bell Jar. 1984 & Animal Farm are both good books by Orwell. Also, I reccomend pretty much anything by Salinger.

    Haha, oh, Brave New World. I love that book.

    Anyway, one of my favorites (the one that isn't the writings of a political prisoner/hunger striker) is Into the Wild. Also my favorite movie, and the best transition from book to movie I've ever seen (seriously, they messed one tiny thing up, and everything else was perfect - the movie had the character getting beaten up when he really got away).
