Topic: Which Books Are Best?
Replies: 34
Views: 2804

I like fantasy books - books that take you outside of the usual settings. Although I also like survival books, and historical fiction. Mystery and horror books are good as well.

But I'm not a *humongous* fan of science fiction -- I can handle some books, but aside from that I'm not to big into it.

No, that wasn't the first thing that popped in to my mind. Umm, in fact -- I never even thought that at all. o.O

Yes, Frankenstein is also a novel as well.

I have Frankenstein, but it's one of those books where it's like split in half and one side of the cover is the cover for one book, and the other side is the cover for the other book. It's Frankenstein and Dracula in one. XD

Would "Jaws" be classified as an 'old classic'? If so, then that's definately my favorite.

I saw the Outsiders in seventh grade; we watched it in conjunction with reading the book. As usual, I preferred the book much more than the movie.

I play trumpet primarily, although I am learning picollo and percussion. XD I absolutely LOVE playing trumpet - it's the best instrument to have for both concert and marching seasons in band. XD

I've recently thought of a couple other books that I would recommend to anyone. Some of them are fairly simple reads, but great anyways. Shadow of the Dragon, Sherry Garland is a great book about Asian culture, and an Asian family trying to make it in Texas. Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë - although I...

I've already recommended this book on another topic, but I'll do so again here. Life of Pi, by Yann Martel is a great book. It's about this sixteen year old kid who's family owns an Indian zoo. He has a keen interest in religion and zoology. But when his family decides to move overseas, they have to...

Yeah, I'm a rising sophomore, so these are books for that level. Last year for freshman reading I had to read Edith Hamilton's Mythology , I Heard the Owl Call My Name , Daisy Miller , The Illustrated Man , and Farewell to Manzanar . Although Farewell to Manzanar was very short, it was very good. It...

Really, summer reading was invented just to keep student's minds engaged over the summer. But still it's pointless. I mean really - half of us aren't going to read them, a quarter of us are going to do it right when school gets out and then feel accomplished, only to forget it all by the time school...

I will never, not as long as I live, NOT love Disney movies. They're so awesome, and the best thing about them is that families can watch them. I have to vote Aladdin. I really sat here debating for some time over which to choose. I was really torn between Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. I think B...

o.O Lots of categories missing there; in fact, many of them are similar. x.X Anyways, I chose "other," because my favorite type of music is country. I see no one has mentioned that genre so far. Yep, I'm a Texan and I like country music. But also on my faves list is: pop, rock, classical, showtunes,...

My story may not be all that exciting, but I find it a tad different. I was one of the late readers of Harry Potter. I had heard about it, but to tell the truth, I was not into all the 'magic' type books at all. I thought it was all weird and rubbish, so I just blew it off. Well, that's typical. My ...
