Lisarenee | 7659 comments I don't know about you, but I love a book that stimulates my mind and makes me come up with a gazillion questions. What books have you read that have truly made you sit back and think, "Wow, I really wish I had someone to discuss this with?"

So if you can only think of one or if you have way more than 10, let us know.

Melanie (melaina) | 287 comments A lot of the same as Lisarenee's, but also Brave New World, Watership Down and Rules of the Road, which is a YA I've loved for a long time:-)
