Maribeth This should be renamed "Vampire Books"


message 2: by Emily (new)

Emily You should add the Lost Hero!


message 3: by Sarah (new)

Sarah This list is fucked up, and so are a lot of your brains. =/
Let me get something through your heads, kay ?
Harry Potter is COMPLETE, UTTER SHIT.
Its a load of pathetic crap, and should have never been published or read by anyone.
I feel sorry for everyone that thinks it good, honestly.
And before you yell at me for judging, YES, I have actually read the first two.
I thought it would get better.
I was wrong.
Now, there`s the truth. :]
xx


message 4: by L. Allen (new)

L. Allen Stovey The Harry Potter series helped millions of young Americans learn how to read well. If nothing else is said, that is a great accomplishment. Thank you J. K. Rowlings.


message 5: by Jacquita (new)

Jacquita It is so true that we are all entitled to have and share our opinions, however what point is there to judge anyone based on the choices that they make in reading material? I have not read any of the Harry Potter books, my understanding is that they were created with children in mind. Anything that ignites the desire in anyone at any age to read can be counted among one of lifes treasures.


message 6: by Eileen (new)

Eileen Hamer This wasn't a good list for me. too many young girl books, too much fantasy, too many vampires. Not that I don't think others should read these, just not for me. I had no idea there were so many.


message 7: by Amara (new)

Amara Not a good list for me either.

Please feel free to add your own list, which will expand the range of genres.

Chrystal Instead of using foul language to slam the books that are listed (Sarah) -after all this isn't yahoo, it's Goodreads - you do have the option of adding your own choices.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Adding books to the list is easy, by the way. You go to the top of the page, and use the tab next to "all votes" to add books from either your own bookshelves, or from a general search of this site.

Whitebeard Books Someone needs to edit this list. It has duplicates.
