Have any of you read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald? I just finished reading it yesterday and I really liked it. Although, practically everyone I know hated it. They all said it was too confusing, boring, or used a weird writing style. /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" /> Anyone else out there that like it as well?

right now im reading this trilogy by bernard cornwell, that takes place during the hundred years war...its really good because its really historically acurate, but also is really interesting and excellently written...if you like mediaeval history you will love it!

My favorite books are the Arthurian Saga by Mary Stewart, A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray, and (obviously) the Harry Potter Series. I have so many other favourite books but those are my top three. Another one i like is His Dark Materials. I liked the first book of that the best though. My favorite HP book is definitely the fourth one. I cannot wait for the sixth to come out. July 16th, Im soooo excited!

You know what I really enjoy reading? The Cirque Du Freak series by Darren Shan. Those books are downright addicting! I can't wait for book #10 to come around, book #9 was really full of suspenses and I want to know what's going to happen next!

Even J.K. Rowling enjoys this series. I'm telling you, this series is just awesome, if you're into vampire stories and stuff. Great stuff Darren Shan has to offer.

Obviously, I love Harry Potter, but besides that I also really like some of the books I have been required to read for school. Books such as:

- The BFG
- Holes
- The Giver
- Animal Farm
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- And Then There Were None (I really liked this one)

I also ended up reading the Cheetah Girls books after I found out the movie was based on them.

The books are better.

the LOTR series
Sirena, Lirael, Abhorsen
The Portrait of Dorian Gray (the BEST classic there is)
Gossip Girl series
Romeo and Juliet (yeah, yeah)
Tale of Two Cities (but what a struggle to read!)
and The Scarlet Letter.

We now have a nice brand new sub-area for all non Harry Potter books, so you can discuss them in here.
Just start a new topic for each book you want to discuss.

Well I have to say the best series I have read is the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. Since that is a series, my favorite stand alone book is Ender's Game which is an absolute masterpiece and if you've seen the movie just know that the book is sooooooooooo much better.

My absolute favorite book is "The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexander Dumas. I love everything about the book. It is a wonderful read but I think everything Alexander Dumas writes is amazing!

I really enjoyed the DaVinci Code series and the Twilight series. So before you judge me and put me down..... I like books of all different genres.... because I like to read, that's why....
So, if I dissappoint in reading this forum message.... then move on....
To the rest, "The Code" has a bundle of Historical Facts.... on top of ... "What Ifs".... lol
Again, my apologies for an Echo, if this series has been mentioned before...
Good Readings Everyone :wub:
