  2. Paige Says:

    YAY! More books, and other living people are visiting the site too!!!!!!!!

    I’m afraid I’m dissapointing you on this, but some of us are dead. Just kidding.
    I’m really happy someone else (living, although I haven’t met anyone who was dead here. I think.) is one this site too. I would like to add some books to the list of books already on here, for bookworms like me who can’t get enough books.
    -Most anything by Tamora Pierce (Song of the Lioness Quartet, The Immortals Quartet, Trickster’s Choice & Trickster’s Queen, Protector of the Small, Beka Cooper.)These are fantasy, taking place in an entirely different world, but with a lot of similar things. Beka Cooper takes place 200 years before the rest, but I would read the Lioness first, then the Immortals, then Protector of the Small, then the trickster books (trickster’s choice, then trickster’s Queen), then Beka Cooper. That was a lot of typing
    -Skulduggery Pleasant, which is fantasy, it takes place in ireland. the order is Scepter of the Ancients, playing with fire, and the Faceless Ones. you’ll understand the titles if you read the books
    -the squires tales, which are about the Knights of the round table, and (shocker) fantasy.
    - artemis fowl, which is about a criminal mastermind who’s a kid, albeit one is slightly evil and most likely crazy. also from ireland, fantasy (do you see a pattern). i think ive mentioned it before but i really like it.
    -black duck, written about prohibition in the us,historical fiction (not fantasy!).
    -bella at midnight. good, although if you’ve read twilight the names may scare you a little and you may not see some characters the same way again.
    this is all i can think of right now. hopefully i have helped some people in their quest to find new books!
    PS: oh yeah, and the voyage and the education of patience goodspeed and sorcery and cecelia. this is and absurdly lengthly post

    I love the books! I just read the first one and it was so cool. I am getting the next one later in the week. It’s on hold at my local Linebaugh library!

  5. sophia Says:

    I am soo happy I will get the 2nd book in the sries later! Its at hold at my linebaugh library! :D

  6. Naomi Says:

    Here’s one: The Inkheart Series! (Inkheart, Inkspell, Inkdeath!) They’re great!

  7. Bibliophile Says:

    Wow. That’s ironic. I have read Savvy, A Drowned Maiden’s Hair, and Fly by Night, and I’ve been planning to read Emma Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree and When You Reach Me! And as for what other people are reading, suffice to say that I love the Lord of the Rings, the Tamora Pierce books, Bella at Midnight, and the Inkheart series, and I really like the Artemis Fowl series! I really seem to like the same books as everyone else. I should read more of these.
    And of course the Theodosia books are awesome, but that goes without saying, right? If I didn’t like them, I wouldn’t even bother to come here.
    Since almost everyone else has recommended something, the books by Diana Wynne Jones are wonderful.

  8. Bibliophile Says:

    It just seems like we all like about the same types of books! Well, that make sense, really.
    Anyway, When You Reach Me and Emma-Jean Lazarus are also great!
    Oh yeah, there’s also The Falconmaster by R.L. LaFevers. That’s a great book.

  9. Greek Girl/Athena Says:

    I have read 3 of those books. They are: Savvy, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, (loved it!) and When You Reach Me. If I could suggest something a little more Asian, I would suggest Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.

  10. Aurelia Says:

    I love Enola holmes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and Gilda joyce I despise Savvy !!!!! Mum read it to my sister i heard and it was horrid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. R.L. Says:

    I haven’t read SAVVY yet but quite liked Enola Holmes!

  12. Jess Says:

    I’m sorry to say this, but when you reach me doesn’t make sense to me.

    Megan, just so you know, the squire’s tales would be very hard to find without the author’s name (Gerald Morris)

    also, some great books:
    -the Redwall books by Brian Jacques, who passed away recently
    -Warriors by Erin Hunter, who is actually three people
    -Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan, who also writes the Kane Choronicles and some of the 39 Clues
    - the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
    -the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott
    -The Seven Realms novels, starting with The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
    -the Blue Sword by Robin Mckinley

    Of course, Theodosia rises above all.

  13. R.L. Says:

    So glad you think so, Jess! And those are some great books you’ve listed there. Some of which I haven’t read yet, so they are going on my reading list!

  14. Elise Says:

    This is almost freaky! I’ve read like half of the books recommended by R.L. and others! FREAKY!
    Idk if these relate but I really like Shabanu and A Girl Named Disaster. Also try the Hermux Tantamoq series
