Recommend good books please? :D

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i'm 15 with a reading age of 17 and just wanted some good books to read. They could be non-fiction and tech related or fictional. Just need something decent. I don't want to be spending over about £10. A paperback would be most preferable.

Thanks LTT Forum

TBH, I really liked the Hunger Games series (I don't really read books so...). I am guessing you have read it already though.

A Game of Thrones is awesome and is already one of my favorite series. I just finished the first one last week and am really enjoying the second (A Clash of Kings) . I do not know how much they are though

I could list a whole bunch of books (that are more college level)   but I'm not sure if you'd find them interesting or not :(

City of Ember was awesome =D

 

I loved the book in middle school / high school. But I thought the movie sucked >_<

 

Did you read the two sequals? The people of sparks and The prophet of Yonwood?

I didn't like the Second book (The one that took place as a prequel, I think it was Yonwood) But the other two I enjoyed.

 

And yeah, the movie sucked xD

I haven't read the books in about 4 years so I forget what the 2nd and 3rd book are about. But I completely remember the entire first book >_<

I should read them again :D (they're just sitting on the shelf right now)

Matthew Reilly - Aussie best-selling author and known for some fast-paced action scenes. Might be worth a look!

For fantasy, ANYTHING by Markus Heitz and Bernad Hennen, fantastic stuff.

 

For Sci-Fi, I can highly reccomend Ian M. Banks' Culture series novels. They are absolutely amazing.

 

Often a good way to find em a little cheaper is getting them as ebooks, if you're comfortable reading like that.

For Sci Fi check out the Revelation Space trilogy by Alastair Reynolds.

 

Huck Finn is a good book.

Hmm...

 

Anything by Douglas Adams, but especially The hitchiker's guide to the galaxy. 

Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit. If you like the lore of LOTR, try Silmarillion. 

The Da Vinci Code. 

Huxley-Brave new world.

George Orwell- 1984 and Animal Farm. 

Also, some might some say they're overrated, but Harry Potter books are actually pretty cool. 

End of thinking capacity.

 

Pride & Prejudice.

 

Oh god I hated that book's guts. 

 

 

 

Now I got the itch to research what to read. Thank you.
