In my opinion I would say Great Expectations and the Pendragon series. Also, the The Pit Dragon Chronicles was a favorite back in Junior High.


Loved Pendragon!!

Hmmm.. how about 3 for sci fi and fantasy (which is what I most commonly read)

Sci fi:
Armor - John Steakley
Chrysalids - John Wyndham
Vampire Earth Series - E.E. Knight

Fantasy:
The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien (still prefer this to the long winded and IMO overrated Lord of the Ring series)
Myth Hunters - Christopher Golden
Midshipwizard Halcyon Blithe - James M Ward

Shogun was an excellent book. Kind of dipped off towards the end but I really enjoyed it.

Raymond E Feist is pretty awesome. Really liked the first trilogy in his riftwar books, but couldn't really get into the rest.
I think the only one I haven't read is Christian Feehan...

Oh yeah how did I manage to forget Ender's Game...
Those other two sci fi books I haven't read though. What are they like?

Wheel of Time??? really?... hmmm definitely not in my top picks.. the first three or four maybe but the rest just killed it for me.
Codex Alera is a sick series and definitely a favorite of mine as well, though I wouldn't compare it to pokemon thats just an aweful comparison. lol.

Oh wow, I totally forgot to mention this book. Such a good story. So sad too. Lenny just wanted to play with the wabbits. :(


ROFL!!!!! ha ha ha ha ha...

When I saw your first post I was thinking that I was surprised you didn't say of mice and men as well. Your like a school reading list recommendation. All the stuff you are referring is way too old and stuffy for me. Well written but no imagination. Not that they weren't decent reads, just not really my thing.

The Artemis Fowl Series by Eoin Colfer, Sisters Grimm Series by Michael Buckley, You Dont Know Me by Klass something or the other, The Giver by Lois Lowry


Artemis Fowl series was excellent. I think youth novels are a lot of times better than regular ones.
