Need a new book to read?

I need a good book, and whenever I read a good one, it's usually because someone told me to read it, see I'm not really good at picking out books, cos' I'll be unsure of it. So I like sort of like make believe like Twilight, like vampire stuff. Or those books where it's the first persons perspective, like their diary, their usually a girl. Like Angus, thongs and full frontal snogging, those kind of books. I also like Monster by Walter Dean Myers.

Can anyone help me find a good book? :)

    Try "Maximum Ride the Angel Experiment" by James Patterson. Its about a bunch of kids with wings whom the bad guys are tryin' to eliminate. Doesn't sound very good? Trust me, I don't like blood and gore or anything, and this had me hooked! It's written in First person, from the point of Max (She's a girl) there are currently 4 books out in this series. By the way, I loved Twilight too!
