Book suggestions?

Postby qwertyuiopl » Thu Aug 17, 2017 8:33 pm

I like mostly fantasy- Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, the Magyk series, the Warriors series, and the Magisterium books are probably my five favourite series. I also really like Andrew Clemens as an author. I'm running low so suggestions would be really nice. Thanks!

I like the Halo books they're Si-Fi but, they're still great, oh and a lot of Manga because I am a weeb.

Have you tried the Legend of Zelda manga?

Everyone seems to like the dystopian genre, so I'll throw in 1984, the novel I'm reading now.

I feel complied to revive my old book discussion thread.

Personally, i believe that the best book ever written is A Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Really, it takes your way of seeing the world, twists it, rapes it, kills it, revives it and then inserts it back into your brain. Of course it's not the same if you don't read it in spanish but whatever, it's still great. If you prefer darker things i would recomend The Shining and Doctor Sleep, both by Stephen King.
The original Scott Hicks.
Doctor,Survivor and Spy prefered.

Space Station 13 Aka TOS in space. <External Link>

I was Blackmailed into placing these:

I'd suggest The Giver and the other books in that series. Skulduggery Pleasant was another nice series.

Oh, and you might also like A Wrinkle In Time.

And if you're interested in more fantasy-ish novels, maybe you would like the Dragonlance chronocles (based off of the D&D campaign setting.)

I also recommend The Giver.

1984 and Animal Farm are also good if you're interested in the topic.

Read Candide by Voltaire. It's old (really old) but great fun.

I also recommend The Giver. It's one of my favorites.
I also suggest Wonder. It's coming out with a movie in November and I'm really excited to see it!

I would like to second this recommendation and also add in The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. There are 6 books in the series and all of them are truly compelling reads.

I recommend the The Godfather if you like 20th-century Sicilian mafias and family feuds.

All of these are good suggestions. I must add the Gone series. (Not the Christian series. There is another series sith the same name.)

Let's Pretend This Never Happened is a book that will have you laughing your ass off every page.

Highly recommend it for anyone that likes comedy in general.

The Dresden Files is a nice urban fantasy series. I have a personal adoration of Tolkien, but his work is difficult to read. The Kingkiller trilogy by Patrick Rothfuss is also excellent, although irritatingly unfinished as of yet.
