For me, as of right now:
-The Throne of Glass series: Absolutely incredible. This story follows an assassin attempting to win her freedom from slavery while a wicked king attempts to obliterate magic completely from the land, and that’s the bare bones of it. It’s gets so wonderfully complex in the later books. Fantastic worldbuilding, wyverns (DRAGONS), an amazing heroine, wonderful supporting characters, and LOTS of magic and battles! I’m a sucker for anything set in a fantasy world with magic, but Throne of Glass is always going to have a very special place in my heart.
-Eleanor and Park- I read this very recently, but it’s quickly become one of my all time favorite books. An adorable story about first love between two high school misfits. It’s a quick read, and it’s simple, but still so powerful.
-The Raven Cycle- Just started this one, but it’s so original. It follows a girl who lives in a family of psychics. She has been living with a prophecy that if she kisses her true love, he will die. Following this, she meets four boys who go to the snooty local private school who are trying to solve a mystery about a Welsh king. The characters are amazing and it’s definitely one of the most unique books I’ve read lately.
-The Lunar Chronicles- Four fairytale retellings set in a futuristic, scifi world. What’s not to love? Cinderella as a cyborg, Red Riding Hood as a girl who teams up with a boy who’s part of a band of soldiers genetically modified to have wolflike traits, Rapunzel as a hacker who’s been trapped in a satellite, and Snow White as the princess of a moon colony.

Emera~I added The Raven Cycle and The Lunar Chronicles to my reading list 😉 That’s my new years resolution this year–to read my book list. It’s by far the best resolution I’ve ever made! :)))

A Separate Peace (I had to read it for my Sophomore English class, but I loved it so much!), Paper Towns (John Green is one of my favorite authors), Son (the fourth book in The Giver series. I loved all four of them, but this was my favorite), The Tiny Wife, and King Dork. 🙂

By books do you mean fiction? I’d say a good book that everybody here should read is “Unseduced and unshaken: the place of dignity in a young woman’s life” by Rosalie de Rosset. It’s a very important book especially in this culture. What does dignity mean?

Hmmm, my favorite book will always be the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I have really been liking the Lunar Chronicles they are a fun sci-fi take on classic fairy tales. Farenheit 451 has some really good food for thought about the importance of books and the exchanging of ideas even if they differ from your own. Till We Have Faces is a really good one by C. S. Lewis. I didn’t finish this because of the intense content, I just didn’t have the stomach for it, but Half the Sky has a lot to say about the injustice done to women across the world and what is being done about it..and what more can be done about it. I highly reccommend it if that is something that interests you.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin, The Hound of the Baskervilles (or any Sherlock book by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle), Arms and The Man, Scarlet Letter, The Odyssey, and the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis are some of my favorite books.
