Original topic by Eaber.
Do I really need to elaborate on the title?
I really liked this topic on the old forum because I found a lot of good books through it…
So the one I’m reading currently is There Is No Dog by Meg Rosoff. So far, I love it!
This is the best description I found: What if God were a teenaged boy?

In the beginning, Bob created the heavens and the earth and the beasts of the field and the creatures of the sea, and twenty-five million other species (including lots of cute girls). But mostly he prefers eating junk food and leaving his dirty clothes in a heap at the side of his bed.

Every time he falls in love, Earth erupts in natural disasters, and it’s usually Bob’s beleaguered assistant, Mr. B., who is left cleaning up the mess. So humankind is going to be very sorry indeed that Bob ever ran into a beautiful, completely irresistible girl called Lucy . . .

It’s funny, surprising and profound. :D You should read it.

currently, im reading ms. peregrine’s house for peculiar children. i love it so far, but its starting to get mushy and it contains a sufficient amount of bad language ( not that i dont know all the bad words, i secretly do… weird how parents can think that their children are angels) i dont know if i should continue it, so i will buy wish list on my kindle. but it is so far… awesome: scary- mysterious- fantasy. my 3 favorite words!

At the current moment I am planning one reading Airborn by Kenneth Oppel. Here’s the description:

Matt Cruse is a cabin boy on the Aurora, a huge airship that sails hundreds of feet above the ocean, ferrying wealthy passengers from city to city. It is the life Matt’s always wanted; convinced he’s lighter than air, he imagines himself as buoyant as the hydrium gas that powers his ship. One night he meets a dying balloonist who speaks of beautiful creatures drifting through the skies. It is only after Matt meets the balloonist’s granddaughter that he realizes that the man’s ravings may, in fact, have been true, and that the creatures are completely real and utterly mysterious.

In a swashbuckling adventure reminiscent of Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson, Kenneth Oppel, author of the best-selling Silverwing trilogy, creates an imagined world in which the air is populated by transcontinental voyagers, pirates, and beings never before dreamed of by the humans who sail the skies.


It looks like a good book, and I will let you guys know what I think about it when I get into it by updating this post.

PS I am now done with all three books. Let me tell you they were great. The second book is Skybreaker, then Starclimber. Loved them all.

finished it a long time ago ( 4 days is a long time ago to me raspberry) loved it, except that the ending was… as if incomplete. they go on a mission in the end. thats it. of course the rest of the story was splendid, deffinitely recommend it.

I’ve just started on the Hunger Games trilogy. I would’ve read it earlier but I was put off by the fact that it was written in present-tense and the waiting list for it at my library was literally six months when I looked. But my “Uncle” Steve lent all three books to me, so I’ve started reading it. Only a couple of chapters in and it’s much better than I thought it would be.

Well, I finished another book that was 481 pages in one day. I thought it was good. It’s call Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud. It was good enough to make me stay up until 1:30 AM to finish it. Most books are though for me. Here’s the description:

Halli Sveinsson is stumpy and swarthy, with a quick mind and an aptitude for getting in trouble. Bored with everyday chores and shepherding, he enjoys playing practical jokes.  When he plays a trick on Ragnar of the House of Hakonsson, he sets in motion a chain of events that will forever alter his destiny.  He is forced to leave home and go on a hero’s quest complete with highway robbers, terrifying monsters, and a girl who may be as fearless as he is. Along the way he will discover the truth about the legends, his family, and himself.

Now that I’m done with Heroes in the Valley, I am beginning to read Steel Trapp: The Challenge. Another great book I think. The sequel to that is Steel Trapp: The Academy. Both are great.

Something I havn’t read in awhile is The Hobbit. Whenever I started reading The Lord of the Rings I would get bored after awhile, but I couldn’t put down The Hobbit.

Almost any of Cassandra Clare’s books are good… She is mainly know for the Mortal Instruments Series (City of Lost Souls is one of the books) and the Infernal Devices Trilogy… Both are really good and take place in the same universe just different place and times in history.
