Book recommendations? Favorite books?

My favorite book is Brisingr by Christopher Paolini-I recommend the series =). I've been to the library numerous times recently and gotten a bunch of books that suck. Does anyone have a recommendation? No Twilight ones though; read it already.

Update:

I already read harry potter. harry is hott and i read those books too much already. yeah...XD

    My Favorite Books. These aren't just books I can think of I promise. I sincerely think of these every day, and they've really impacted me and my life. A lot. The Five People You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom This book is so incredible. It really gives an example of how everything happens for a reason, and how much you can inspire someone or how much someone can inspire you. It's just incredible. Favorite book ever. The Book of Joe – Jonothan Tropper Another touching story. So sad, so funny, you'll be crying from laughter at some parts, and really legitly crying at others. Everyone can relate to the characters in this book. It's absolutely amazing. Second favorite book =) The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger You might have seen the movie, which was terrible compared to the book. A bit more aimed towards adults, but amazing all the same. Mr. Murder – Dean Koontz A murder/sci-fi/mystery/thriller crazy thing. But it's incredibly intriguing and wonderful. I finished it in a day, it's so suspensful. Angels and Demons – Dan Brown The Da Vinci Code – Dan Brown The Lost Symbol – Dan Brown Probably heard of these, too. The Angels and Demons movie was SO BAD. Da Vinci Code was good, though. But the books are so goooood. Candy – Keven Brooks About prostitution and drugs. Very very very good. You'd love it. Just Listen – Sarah Dessen A Speak type of novel thing. All about a girl finding not who she is, which is a bit cliche, but more like, who she wants to be. Super cute. =) The Last Song – Nicholas Sparks Movie was okay, but it didn't make me cry like the book did. Plus I don't like Miley Cyrus. Speak – Laurie Halse Anderson I'm sure you've read this. Thirteen Reasons Why – Jay Asher About a girl who committed suicide and then a set of tapes was sent along to 13 people who were accused of being one of the 13 reasons that she killed herself. Point of view by a boy who was madly in love with her, and recieves these tapes. Incredible. Kiss Me Kill Me – Lauren Henderson A girl goes to a party and, upon kissing her crush, he dies of an alergic reaction. Crazy crazy. There's a sequel too. Face on the Milk Carton – Caroline B. Cooney Kind of juvenile, I read it in like 6th grade, but it's so good. The rest of the series is alright. Crank – Ellen Hopkins Written in verse, about a girl who becomes addicted to "the monster". Crystal meth. The Glass Castle – Jeannette Walls A memoir about a really truly messed up family. A lot of lessons to be learned here. His Dark Materials – Philip Pullman You know, A Golden Compass, etc? So so good and insightful. <3

    Pendragon by DJ MacHale - every Eragon fan is destined to like it. They are an awesome series, and the last book came out, so you won't have to wait for another book.

    Maximum Ride by James Patterson. A series about a group of kids who were given special abilities... sort of...

    Gone by Michael Grant. Suddenly, all the parents and people over a certain age disappear.

    The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It's original and you really get into the book and connect with the characters.

    If nothing else, I would read Pendragon - you'll fall in love with it. Even the most stubborn of my friends liked it.

    my favorite books are the catcher in the rye, a clockwork orange, the book of flying, the color purple, a separate peace, memoirs of a geisha, anything by mitch album. and if you actually liked twilight, try harry potter. it's so much better and more creative.
