David jones | 3 comments I recommend Ashfall and Ashen Winter. They are both dystopian novels about the supervolcano in yellowstone and they are both excellent. The final book comes out in April.

Rachel | 187 comments Have you read: Divergent? Hunger games? Harry potter? Uglies? Or I am reading right now: Matched? Or on my to-read list: The Selection?
They are all series, some of which not all of the books have been released. I know this was already said but, check people's, read and currently reading list, and look at the rating. Pick out some 4 and 5 star books and your set!

HAPPY READING !!!!! ¡¡¡¡¡ !!!!!

I didnt read Divergent, hunger games, harry potter and uglies!

Wren Figueiro | 15 comments For a cute story try The Ex Games by Jennifer Echols, I like most of her earlier books, haven't gotten to the new ones yet. For fantasy, Graceling and Fire by Kristin Cashore are both excellent.

A Marked Past (The Mercer Legacy, #1) by Leslie Deaton A History Renewed (The Mercer Legacy, #2) by Leslie Deaton A Destiny Unfolds The Mercer Legacy by Leslie Deaton

If you haven't read any of them like you said; I would recommend all of them. Except, the Uglies trilogy was different. The first two books were good/great, the third book okay. But, then a year later they wrote a 4th book called 'Extras' which I wouldn't recommend, it is part of the series but, more like a huge epilogue.

Ahh LOVE this series too! And Mike Mullin is SO COOL, not only did he read one of my books and write a review for it, but he agreed to come to my YA group here on Goodreads from January 13-19 for a Q&A! AND he's giving away an ARC of Sunrise, the final book in the Ashfall series during the Q&A! How awesome is he? Feel free to stop by and ask him a question in January :)

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 350 comments And great other suggestions all, I love many of the books you mentioned :) I'll add The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater and Unwind (Unwind, #1) by Neal Shusterman to the list!


message 14: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 187 comments How do you set up all of these Q & A's? If you don't mind me asking. It's so awesome though, all of the authors coming and providing knowledge for us aspiring young minds!!

I know how awesome he is. He came to my library in my city and I went to see him and I got ashfall signed (twice because I had won that on a giveaway and it was signed then) and he gave a karate demonstration where he broke a cement block in half. It was quite awesome.

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 350 comments That's my little secret *raps knuckles against the table* Just kidding :) Honestly, a lot of the credit goes to my Street Team, the Estes Angels! We started a project a few months ago to try to get as many big time authors to come to David Estes Fans and YA Book Lovers Unite (https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/...) for Q&As. We thought it would be a really cool thing for our 1,800+ members, as well as a fantastic way for the authors to connect with readers and attract some new readers.

Three months later and we've already had so many bestselling authors, and have many more coming on in the future! Essentially all we do is stalk...I mean...follow the authors on their various social networking sites and then contact them to tell them we love their books and to tell them about the group and the Q&A opportunity. Luckily for us, so many authors have been SO GENEROUS with their time! Here's the lineup we've managed to get so far (note the September and November ones are finished):

September:
Barry Lyga (I Hunt Killers)
November:
Jennifer A. Nielsen (The False Prince)
Ilsa J. Bick (Ashes)
Marissa Meyer (Cinder)
December:
Hugh Howey (Wool)
January:
Cristin Terrill (All Our Yesterdays)
Mike Mullin (Ashfall)
Laurie Faria Stolarz (Deadly Little Secret)
February:
Neal Shusterman (Unwind)
Jodi Meadows (Incarnate)
May:
Elizabeth Wein (Code Name Verity)

Ames | 27 comments I think that it mostly depends on what age you are.
When I was younger, I loved The Alchemyst.
For the past few years, some of my favourite books have been The Iron King (paranormal) Anna and the French Kiss (I think the would fit in the 'cute romance category') Firelight (paranormal)and The Selection (dystopian)!

I know. I cannot wait for Sunrise. Ashen Winter was too good. Left me hanging.

Ann Kemp (annhitekemp) | 14 comments Try SNAP! AND THE ALTER EGO DIMENSION. Go to www.facebook.com/snapandthealteregodi... to read more about the book.

Sophia (Bookwyrming Thoughts) (bookwyrmingthoughts) | 708 comments I'm more of a fantasy, paranormal and dystopian person. :3


message 23: by Ann (new)

Ann Kemp (annhitekemp) | 14 comments Ok. SNAP! is sci-fi, adventure and a little paranormal. Not Ghosts, but evil alter egos that want to store you forever in their dimension. Real people have to fight them off, or loose.
