Emma | 30 comments Hi! I just finished reading 'Moon Over Manifest'. I thought it was REALLY good, and now I can't get over it! I can't bring myself to read anything else, because I'm still living in that story. I thought maybe if I get a bunch of recommendations about what to read...So, can anybody help? I like YA/Children's books. I can't think of any specific subject, so this might be a shot in the dark. Is there any books that you can recommend?

If you like fairy tales then you may like this book.

***warning*** It's book one of three. And if you like it half as much as I did you will run out to get book two. Book three is not out yet :(

Emma | 30 comments That book sounds really good! Jack and the Beanstalk combined with Snow White...Cool! Thanks! I just looked it up, and the newest one doesn't come out until MAY 7TH, 2013?? Aaah, another book to wait for! (I can already tell I'm going to like this series)

I don't know books of those genres to recommend, but I know the feeling, it happens to me too :-)

Emma | 30 comments Becca:

East sounds pretty good, although I don't usually like books with talking animals. I managed to get through The Tale of Desperaux, and it ended up being pretty good. So I might give it a try!

The Seer and the Sword sounds very...creepy. Also, complicated. It's also intriguing, so it's for sure on my to-read list!

I've read Coraline, by the same author of Stardust. It creeped me out a little...So I'm nervous to read another one by the same author. But I do like unicorns, so I'll add it. Hey, do you like fantasy by any chance? xD

Sara's Key seems very deep! Is it fiction? Non-fiction? Mix of both? It sounds as if it could be real.

The Curious Incident...I don't want to type the whole title, but I've heard of it before. I looked at the lists that it was on, and now I know I have to read it. 'Best Books Ever'? Wow. It must be good.

AGAIN with the Fantasy, Becca? ;) But seriously, Graceling sounds really good!

Thanks so much for your help!

Emma | 30 comments Oh, and thanks for your support Moloch. It sucks, RIGHT?


message 8: by Becca (new)

Becca | 5 comments Why yes, I do like fantasy :) (I like other book genres as well- I've just been on a fantasy roll this year).

East is really good- and I usually do not like renditions of Beauty and the Beast.

Sarah's Key is fiction (but based around real WWII events).


message 9: by D.A. (new)

D.A. (Mourning-book-catalog) Touch of Power (Healer, #1) by Maria V. Snyder Goblin Quest (Jig the Goblin, Book 1) by Jim C. Hines Cast in Shadow (Chronicles of Elantra, #1) by Michelle Sagara West?

I certainly second Graceling. But the books in series are very, very longband not quick reads so would not do back to back.


message 10: by Emma (new)

Emma | 30 comments Touch of Power and Cast in Shadow sound especially good! I'm not so sure about Goblin of Quest...But I'll add it anyway, because I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Thanks for the tip about the back to back thing. I'll be sure not to!

Thanks Deborah!

Emma | 30 comments Thanks Belle!

I now have enough books to last me a while.

Thank-you, everybody!

Gene (Vilstef) | 17 comments Some YA books I'd recommend highly are the Blossom Culp books by Richard Peck.

Just to say this is a good list, even if the OP is satisfied there's no reason to close the thread.

The Kin and The Underneath are books for ages 9 to 109 that will make you glad you're a reader.
