Yes, I'll admit it, I'm younger than some of you here but I read A LOT.

You know? That's great! Reading is fantastic.

 

But, if I was a mother, I wouldn't let my young kids read it, because I don't consider the latter books to be for kids that young.

I don't think I'm reading age level appropriate. In fact, when I was 11, I read..

idk if you've heard of this, but I read the book Sunshine by Robin McKinley. I found it a teeny bit inappropriate for my age. You know what? more than a teeny bit for the content.

Well anyways, That just goes to show I don't follow age boundaries. But you ARE right. I wouldn't let my child read it if i was a mother either. Unelss I knew they could handle it.

I agree with the top posts. I read the book The Orpheus Obsession when I was about eleven, and I was like, "...Eh?!" some parts were a little much for an eleven year old. And unfortunately, the summary on the back of the book hadn't said anything about that. x.x

Ja. Same with Sunshine. All it said was a leetle info about how she was captured, bu tnothing after that. If I had known she would fall in love and...you know...that... , I would've thought before I'd read it.

But it was a good book, excluding the romance parts.

darkangel, good for you! I apparently read above my age level when I was younger as well.

 

I dunno what you guys mean by not wanting your kids to read Harry Potter. It's a good story and teaches lessons. Those would be at the top of my list of books to give to my kids once they're able to read it.

 

Heck, one of the kindergartners I worked with after school last year was reading the Twilight books. I think I'd rather have her read Harry Potter...

I think if the kid wants to read it and actually finishes it, it's fine. I'm of course biased by having read NC-17 material at 12 and not having the slightest interest in acting out any of it in real life.

 

I can't find anything particularly objectionable in Sunshine's summary, darkangel787. Can you be more specific?

@Aurion

Lol.

Yeah, I'd give it to kindergarteners any day, as long asthey show the flair for reading that I showed... xd.png I read the first book when I was in kindergarten or first grade or smoething like that and loved it...I remember carrying it around with me everywhere I went and my friends calling me nerd.

 

...Ahh...good times... *goes off reminiscing* wub.gif

That DID make me go 'whoa.' And then I spazzed and cried for a week. DX

 

Breaking Dawn's twist when she actually does have a kid wasn't surprising, really, but I DID make me go 'WTF?'

 

HP had a lot of twists that made me say 'whoa' to myself too. O.o

IKR. HP, especially numbers 5 6 and 7 made me WHOA all the time ohmy.gif Like...

 

SPOILERS AHEAD!

(though I can't imagine WHY you haven't read HP yet. READ IT NAOW! NOW! NOW!)

 

Like, when i heard the prophecy, I was like WHOA.

And when Snape "killed" Dumbledore I was like WHOA.

And when the Doe showed up in bk 7 I was like WHOA

And when they found out Snape's good I was like WHOA.

And when the final flaws in the plan nd the harry vs voldy face off happened I was like... that's right, you guessed it.... WHOA.

Lots of Whoas in the book. xd.png

I've got a knack for predicting things, I find spoilers, or I'm just not surprised by anything.

^ This, except in the 2nd Demonata Book where it turns out his younger brother is a demon, I was a lil shocked but I still figured it out before I was suppost too.

I agree about the spoilers.

 

IF YOU HAVE A SPOILER, PLEASE PUT A SPOILER ALERT AND TYPE THEM IN WHITE SO THAT IF PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED, THEY CAN HIGHLIGHT THEM.

 

Hows that? :3

The Ranger's Apprentice, book 1. The Kalkara. All I'm gonna say. Actually the whole series has a lot of twists and turns. They are EXTREMELY good books. Even for an adult.

The second book, the ending. Spoiler alert: When the main character is kidnapped.

The third book, towards the middle. Spoiler: The drug addiction.

I could go on and on, but I shall save you from my rambling, haha. It's a great series though. I recommend it highly to young teenagers, or I started the series at I think 11. I still recommend it to young adults who like fantasy. And swords and stuff. Oh darn I'm still rambling.

For Firewing:

 

The story behind the gods.

 

... I just sort of cheered. And then I stopped cheering when Shade had to live a life basically worse than death.

 

Was a child's book when I started reading them, around the age of 10. I would not let my 10 years old read Deathly Hallows, or HBP. Not until he's grown a bit and can fully understand the story without keeping me awake due to nightmares.

 

The books evolved along with the readers, only to finish in such a clichéd way, it didn't even look like Rowling had written it.

 

Lol, I wus raised with the Harry Potter series and as such, I was raised with Deathly Hallows. I read the books at age ten. I didn't have a single nightmare. I only cried about Dobby, then I proceeded to read other books. =V

 

Yeah, the ending for Deathly Hallows sucked so bad I was about ready to start foaming at the mouth. Harry. Should. Have. Died. Everything would have been right in the world if he had just died.

 

Actually, I think the only books that have had a sort of lasting impression (worthy of nightmares) would be the Silverwing series.

 

They... pecked off the newborn's wings and sang to drown out his screams of pain and just left him to die...

 

God those books. o_o

Yeah. Kenneth Oppel = excellent writer.

In Airborn...

 

At the end the pirates ended up being on the island with them and capturing the boy and girl but then they get out ofthe death trap eventually xd.png

 

as soon as they WANT TO, I would let them read the Harry Potter series. Always gona keep the series, never gonna throw them out, I'm going to let my kids read them, then my grandkids, then my great grandchildren...

Let's take a classic, shall we?

 

In Romeo and Juliet, when Mercutio dies. I had read it and misunderstood the context and thought that he had merely been fooling around and then he's all like, "okay, I go and die now." I was like "COME ON SHAKESPEARE!" <----Spolier.

 

I died a little inside.
