If you like dystopian novels, you should try Unwind by Neal Shusterman. It's super awesome.

 

He's who I came here to talk about. He's really awesome, and I think his Skinjacker Trilogy is my favorite, and his books are just, ugh amazing. His style makes me think of Stephen King.

I've recently read I am J by Cris Beam and Ash by Malinda Lo. Both are wonderful books and are very much worth reading. (:

So, I am in a book called "Secret Vampire" and so far I find it very interesting.

But, mostly, I am involved in books with mystery, fiction or fact, vamps, wolves, love, romance, lust, etc...

blah blah blah and all that good stuff

Wolves, Jaguars and well, something like The Borg (Dr. Who fans will know) falling in love, basically.

Recently read Boy meets Boy by David Levithan. I'm also currently reading Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden. Both are very good and worth checking out if you like LGBTQ books or if you're just interested in a good read.

I will forever adore Jane Austen novels. Perfect prose, perfect pacing, extrordinarily well-wrought characters, engaging plots, what more could a bibliophile desire? I make a point to read Pride and Prejudice at least once a year, and her other works are on a two year rotation. (I take my favourite books seriously)

Howl's Moving Castle.

 

I read it when I saw a couple of friends on another forum give it a glowing report.

 

It's a trilogy, and I've downloaded the next two onto my Kindle. I do a lot of my reading backwards and forwards to work on the bus.

Wow, you're about the only person I know besides the ex who introduced me to her books who's read Gael Baudino. Given my age and my musical tastes, Gossamer Axe is my favorite of hers.

 

Other favorites... pretty much anything I've read by Mercedes Lackey... the Valdemar books, the Elemental Masters books, the Dragon Jousters books, along with a couple others. Clan of the Cave Bear, The Valley of Horses, and The Mammoth Hunters by Jean M. Auel and I think it's a shame how the series went downhill after that. Books 4 and 5 were passable, but book 6 was a waste of paper, as well as a waste of my reading time. For unashamedly "mature" reading, Bertrice Small's Pleasures series, and for when I want to revisit my childhood I like Heidi, A Little Princess, and The Secret Garden. Since I'm in the SCA, Murder at the War by Mary Monica Pulver is a sentimental favorite, but my favorite mysteries are the Brother Cadfael series by Ellis Peters.

 

...and I just realized that I've got over a hundred favorites mentioned here, and that's not even all of the books I re-read on a regular basis. *facepalms* Guess it would be easier to ask me what books I dislike, lol, the list would be a LOT shorter!

These are just some off the top of my head, there are others I like, I just can't think of them at the moment.
