๓คץค- Oh my goodness this is just about the hardest question ever...
I would say:
1. The Unwanteds
2. To Kill a Mockingbird
3. Kira-Kira
4. The WHOLE Harry Potter series. :)
5. The Hunger Games

I have never read The Blood of Olympus, so I don't know how good it is. It sounds like it should be a good book, so i'll read it. :)


Shiah Okay in no order because I just can't decide on a favorite book.

Torn Away - Jennifer Brown
The PJO/HOO Series - Rick Riordan
The Harry Potter Series- JK Rowling
The Fault In Our Stars - John Green
The Hunger Games Trilogy - Suzanne Collins

I'm probably gonna realize that I missed something and should have put it in in about an hour oh well.


kayla My favorite Series so far ;)

PJO/HOO - Rick Riordan
The Infernal Devices - Cassie Clare
The Lunar Chronicles - Marissa Meyer
Legend Trilogy - Marie Lu
The Mortal Instruments - Cassie Clare
(in no particular order)


Shiah I would suggest looking for a Goodreads FAQ

Okay... I shall.

Apologies, but you can't force us, to choose between the HOO books, it's like choosing a favorite child!


Pluto Person Matthew wrote: "1. The Odyssey
2. The Great Gatsby
3. Poetics
4. A Storm of Swords
5. The God Delusion"


HAHA! I'm sorry, the Odyssey? XD Wait, you're serious?


chloe 1. The Book Thief
2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
3. Divergent
4. City of Heavenly Fire
5. Cress

These aren't in any particular order but these are favorites that came to mind first. It's hard to pick just five! The Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars, and Heroes Of Olympus series are also favorites but those 5 I listed are more recent favorites :)


Pluto Person Fine, I'll do singular books.

1. Divergent
2. The Last Olympian
3. Mark of Athena
4. Ender's Game
5. The Giver


SarahO Oh, this is tough cause it's hard to separate a series but I shall try. In no particular order here are my current favorite non-classic books:

1. Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter
2. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
3. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
4. Blood Red Road by Moira Young
5. Still Star-Crossed by Melinda Taub


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

1. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
2. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
3. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
4. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
5. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

I also loved Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson/Heroes Of Olympus series', but I wanted to share some things outside of the amazing PJO/HOO fandom. XD

I am serious.


Pluto Person I'm actually sorry. I shouldn't insult your choices. It's just everybody who I know finds it to be humdrum to the maximum.

It was a bit of dry at times, and one's experience largely depends on the translator, but the archetypical level in which the events took place overrode that for me.

Magpie I feel like I should read The Maze Runner...what is it about?


Shiah Set in the future where a solar flare set off a virus destroying most of the population. About 60 boys are trapped in a piece of land surrounded by a maze. Everyday "runners" go out to try to map it. They begin the learn more things and what they have to do the escape. There is one new person every month and "Thomas" comes through as a the new one for the month. But the day after that someone comes through a girl and she has an important note. I can't say much more without giving it all away but it's a really cool series and I think you should read it.


Magpie Hmm sounds cool...I go through books like tissues so I'll give it a try!

Shiah Torn Away by Jennifer Brown and The Fallen World trilogy by Megan Crewe, the first on is called The Way We Fall. Torn Away is super sad but probably one of the best books I've ever read. And The Fallen World trilogy is fantastic. Can't really think of anything else to recommend.
