    If you're looking for a sappy romance that's easy to get into, you can't go wrong with Nikolas Sparks. Try The Notebook (actually very different from the movie), The Wedding, or A Walk to Remember (also very different from the movie).

    If you like fantasy novels, I would recommend Harry Potter, books by Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle, The Chronicles of the Chrestomanci), The Dark is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper.

    A few general good books are White Oleander by Janet Fitch, The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay, The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, and David Sedaris' books are always funny.

    I think you may like the book Looking For Alaska. It's sort of a generic teenage drama, but can be met with some enjoyment if you're into that sort of reading. I'd recommend that or Perks of Being A Wallflower, other than that I don't know many books in congruency to what you're asking for.

    I hope this helps. At least google them and look into whether you'd want to read them. I'm sure someone else will come up with better suggestions though.

    Good day.

    Well I like books by Darren Shan.

    Such as the Saga of Darren Shan (also known as the Cirque du Freak series)

    And the Demonata

    It's about Vampires and Demons respectively, and contrary to popular belief in my opinion I find neither of the book scary but a good read.

    Seeing as you like twilight I would say firstly, they are definitely not like that, but I think you should try them.

    Also don't be put off by the covers. I was too but then I read them and having been reading all books by him since.

    If you're looking for a bit of mystery and murder, James Patterson is a good writer of those. He even has some romance novels although I've never read them before.

    Hope you enjoy reading, it's one of the great pleasures of life.

    Well if you're sure you like the whole boy meets girl love thing...then here's what I suggest: Vampire Kisses Series by Ellen Schreiber, House of Night Series by P.C. and Kristen Cast (Marked, Betrayed, Chosen, Untamed, Hunted), Generation Dead Series by Daniel Waters, Blue Bloods Series by Melissa De La Cruz, Wicked: Witch and Curse Series by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie, Mortal Instruments Series (City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass) by Cassandra Clare, Deadly Little Secrets by Laurie Stolarz, Blue is for Nightmares by Laurie Stolarz, Night World by L.G. Smith, Vampire Diaries by L.G. Smith, etc. My last recommendation is one of my most favorite books ever A Great and Terrible Beauty. It is a trilogy, Rebel Angels and The Sweet Far Thing following. There is great romance in these books, however they do not center around romance at all. The point of the book is not to be centered around the main character's relationship with her lover. Anyway, a great book, impressive, and highly recommended. The books are by Libba Bray.

    Well, I'm 13 and my friends say i read "shallow" books. But if you like the girl meets boy thing, fall in love...blah blah blah stuff. I'd suggest anything by Hailey Abbott. I just finished reading her whole Summer Boys series. and i really enjoyed it. But basically all of her books are that sort of girl meets boy thing.

    Hope this helps. Enjoy the reading.

    A great summer read is Snow flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. This isn't a love story, but it is a great book about long lasting frendships between two girls over their lives.

    I think you'll like Holly Black, she's written some FANTASTIC books that I am crazy about. If you like modern-day kinda girl books, or are into faeries.. you'll like it I think. Or Wicked Lovely is a good book, I forget the author.. City of Bones is great also.
