Ok, in this area i would like people to write about books you loved or maybe didn't enjoy. I would like you to put a title, the author, and a short comment/review/summary. This would be the place someone can come and look for a book to read next. So, i would REALLY love it if this was the one area we don't get off subject and just do reviews and such. Sorry, if this an inconveniences you, but i would love it if you followed this ONE rule. Thank you so much.

I'll start first with a couple of the books i loved.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
by: Stephen Chbosky

*This book was really amazing and takes more of a high school maturety. It is really great though. It is more of a coming of age book and is full of everything highschool. I loved this book and would really recommend it to anyone

The Screwed Life of Charlie the Second
By: Drew Ferguson

*This book is so amazing and another one of my all time favorite books. It is another kind of coming of age book and also takes a high school maturety. It is about a high school student who is gay and meets a new kid in town. He and him begin to become really good friends and share part of their high school experience together. I recommend this book to anyone.

Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys
By: Kate Brian

*I know this book sounds cheesy - a girl who gets to live with her parents' friends and their 7 boys while they go to South Korea for two years - but it is really really believable. I loved it.
I think it's more of a girl book, but guys could try it too.
It has slight cussing and there are some sexually promoting scenes in it, but not many.

Diane My Sister's Keeper
It was a sad book beacuse the sister is sick and tells you all about the tolls the family goes through but it was a great book

I absolutely loved this book. The title really fits the book because the setting is disney world. I thought it was the sweetest cheesy love story ever. It was cheesy I have to admit but the whole time you are reading it you are flooded with every emotion.

xAnissax (sizzling1973) | 19 comments Thirteen Reasons (Why) by Jay Asher

Clay returns from school one day to find a box filled with cassette tapes. Two weeks earlier, his classmate, and the girl he had a crush on, committed suicide. On the tapes she explains why and on each tape, there is a name of someone who affected her. Clay's name is on a tape and the only reason to find out why he has anything to do with Hannah Baker, is listen.

I loved it. It was sad and amazing and usually I hate book endings but I really liked this one because it really reflected the whole story.

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

Austen is a romantic writer. In Sense and Sensibility there are two different views of love that you will explore throughout the novel.in this novel, two women fall in love in opposite ways.Some think with their heads while others think with their hearts. it is such a delightful book. =)


message 8: by Rebekah (new)

Rebekah | 23 comments the truth about forever is my absolute favorite. it's by sarah dessen and really any book by her is good. in truth about forever she has to deal with her fathers death and finding out who she really is. it's an awesome book.

Do you know "Für immer vielleicht" (engl. "Love, Rosie")? That´s a great book and I enjoyed reading it...


message 13: by Katherine, The Math Nerd (new)

Katherine | 1391 comments Mod

message 15: by Leonie, The European One (new)

Leonie | 516 comments Mod
oh me, too!!! (but I didn´t want to name it, because sooo many people like it! ;)) "Love, Rosie" is about a girl and a boy... They´re best friends. When they´re adults, they both are married. Rosie with Greg and her friend Alex has a wife, too. They don´t realize that they actually like each other (Alex and Rosie).... Just in the end...


message 16: by Leonie, The European One (new)

Leonie | 516 comments Mod
Love, Rosie is written by the same author, who wrote "P.S. I love you"

Leonie | 516 comments Mod
i read "the host" and I thought it´s a great book, but twilight is better...!!! :D In some parts "the host" is a little bit boring...


message 25: by Katherine, The Math Nerd (new)

Katherine | 1391 comments Mod
I really like The Host A Novel. Yes, it is boring in some places, but still really good. I wouldn't have read it, but my Aunt Julie said that it was really good and that I needed to read it. The first half was kinda slow, but the rest is great!!
Twilight is still better though. :)

Christy Miller Collection, Vol 1
By Robin Jones Gunn

It is the most amazing book ever. It changed my life. And no, I'm not joking.


message 39: by Cindy (new)

Cindy | 31 comments Well I am not obsessed with Twilight anymore... I actually think it's still a good book but... I don't know; I just don't like it as much. Especially since I saw the movie. There are better books out there... such as the Mortal Instruments series! City of Bones is the first one. It's by Cassandra Clare and OMN it's amaz-z-zing! My all time favorite series.


message 40: by Cindy (new)

Cindy | 31 comments Oh, even though this was lots of comments ago, Flowers For Algernon was sad, I agree. But I saw the movie and it was kinda creepy in a way. Maybe it's just me. But I haven't read the book, I just read a shortened version of it...


message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

(i read the book not the shortened version so amazing)


message 42: by Jared (new)

Jared Kessler (JaredMatthewKessler) | 3 comments "Conversation's with God" was pretty AMAZING when I first read it. I think the best books are when they answer a particular problem you need an answer to and it just serendipitously (is that spelled right) appears in that book.

If that makes sense.
-Jared


message 43: by Leonie, The European One (new)

Leonie | 516 comments Mod
yes, can be


message 44: by Jake (new)

Jake | 158 comments I completely understand what your saying Jared.


message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah that does make sense. Also, coincidentally(i think i spelled that wrong) I think my mom is reading that.
