Favorite books.

Since I’m obsessed with reading, I’d like to share some of my favorite books…

A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin
Ever seen HBO’s Game of Thrones? Well the show is based off Martin’s Medieval fantasy books, which are utterly fantastic. I’ve yet to finish the fifth book, but this is definitely my favorite series.

hp The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Of course, I’m sure you already agree because everyone loves Harry Potter.
If you need a description, I’ll assume you’ve been living under a rock your whole life.
The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
Yes, I know the writing style isn’t the best ever, but the story telling is superb. AND, now that the movies are super popular, everyone’s reading the books!
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
Okay, I know what you’re thinking: Stephenie Meyer wrote Twilight, so no thanks. This novel is actually much more enjoyable than the Twilight series; though it has the inevitable love triangle (with a twist), the genre is more science fiction.
By the Light of the Moon by Dean Koontz
Again, this is a science fiction book, but it’s an adult rather than young adult novel, so the writing style is more mature.
The Taking by Dean Koontz
Another Koontz novel, another science fiction type book – this story sort of involves aliens, but I can’t give anything away.
The Maze Runner Triology by James Dashner
Though the first book starts off kind of weird and might be a bit difficult to get into at first, this is a great post-apocalyptic young adult series.
The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice
Though I have only read the first six books of this eleven-book series – Prince Lestat will soon be released – I really love it. Anne Rice is the master of vampire novels, and I’m not talking sparkly skin and golden eyes. These novels are about the vampire Lestat, who is the classic murderous, blood-thirsty, burning-in-the-sun monster. Two movies have been made based on this series – Interview With The Vampire and Queen of the Damned.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I read this novel for fun and later ended up taking an Austen class. I enjoyed it even more when I got a more academic look at it. It’s a classic example of people who initially dislike each other falling in love.
Everworld series by K.A. Applegate
Okay, so this twelve-book series is very strange to say the least. The story surrounds four teenagers who get stuck in parallel world/dimension and encounter all our world’s myths and legends. From Greek gods to vikings to the Aztec, each book encompasses a different adventure. I know I’ve read the first nine books twice, but I don’t think I’ve ever finished; when I do go to finish, too much time has passed and I have to start the whole series over… Hopefully soon I’ll finally find out if/how they make it out of Everworld.
The Hours by Michael Cunningham
I recently read this novel for my English 298: Introduction to Literary Studies class, and I fell in love with it. Michael Cunningham is pretty genius from what I’ve read so far.
