So, I guess it's already been solved: Brick (2005)

For me, the saddest story, beyond a doubt was Go Ask Alice by an anonymous author. *SPOILER* It starts off with this average girl falling into a drug addiction, and she's getting better around the end, what with a new love interest and being reunited with her family. And then you turn to the last page, and it says that she died around a week/month later, and you can't help but feel punched in the stomach. I know that I'm only supposed to pick one book, but I can't help it, there is another book called Burned by Ellen Hopkins, and I need to tell you, I could not help feeling both immensely sad and sorry for her and I could completely understand her decision at the end. Believe me, I would have done the same thing (if I was a girl, that is.) :)

If you loved Charles de Lint, you should really try his adult fantasy books! It is filled with such a blend of the fantastical and reality that often times you can wonder if what he writes is actually true! Another author that I absolutely love who writes books in a similar vein is Nina Kiriki Hoffman. Try her books out! :)

Oh, how I wish they did that. It was an "interesting" take on the series, but like you, I wish they had actually stuck to the book for their plot...

Ok, you are amazing!! Ive read The Chosen One and Wintergirls, as well as the Ghost Huntress series, up to the latest one, as well as generation dead and flip, but Party and the book by E. Lockhart look really good to read! Thanks! :)

If you liked those series, you should try the other ones he's made or involved with! There are two series that I know of, called The Kane Chronicles (about Egyptian gods) and The Heroes of Olympus series (about a mixture of Greek/Roman gods). Both of them are in a similar vein to the Percy Jackson series, and he's involved with many authors with a different series called The 39 Clues, where he has written the first book, and another author writes a sequel to that and so on. All of the series that I've mentioned are AMAZING!! And I really hope you get to try them! :)

Ive read Ingo, and I loved it,*SPOILER* especially the problems the main protagonist goes through because she is a part of two worlds, as well as dealing with her missing father...Helen Dunmore is an AMAZING writer! :) To: cindu_14@hotmail.com

I've read and loved the Crystal Door series, but while I am a fan of spy stories, I like it when the supernatural is mixed in with it. My favourite spy/supernatural series is Spy Goddess, and while the Kiki Strike books sound good, they don't feel like my type of story. Thanks for trying though, and please recommend more!! :)

I LOVED The Devouring!!! It was such a horror book, and completely different from a lot of the horror stories I've read! And I absolutely loved The Guardian of Time series!!! The ending was so sad, though...I literally cried when *that incident* happened (not saying anything, because I don't want to reveal anything to the ones who haven't read it!) and YAY! Finally a book that sounds interesting enough for me to read! I can't wait for Rosebush to come through! Thanks! :) (Unfortunately, once I get it, I'll be done in a day, so hopefully you'll have more recommendations for me soon!) :)

I just read the first one, and OMG, I LOVED IT!!! Egyptian mythology has always been one of my favourite subjects and Rick Riordan did it justice! :) I always love the fresh take that he has upon mythology and the modern world. And I really wanted it to be five books too, instead of three...Egyptian mythology has so many fascinating things attached to it!

SO TRUE!!! For a few books, I despaired of the Artemis Fowl series, because it seemed so repetitive...so many things were recycled and made over again, that I thought there wouldn't be any more originality...but then the Time Paradox came out as well as The Lost Colony and both of them were completely original, introducing new characters and a new storyline, but now I'm starting to worry that he'll continue on this trend...

Oh, you NEED to read the other three! So much drama and things happen, it's almost like seeing a soap opera in written form, except with the additional twist of the supernatural! :)

I have! I have! XD I love how the author, Rick Riordan, explains the difference between the Greek and Roman gods...it makes me want to see what he will do, and maybe include Egyptian gods as well? Especially since the Greeks thought, long ago, that Thoth, the Egyptian god of knowledge, was another face of Hermes...I wonder if there are demi-gods of Ancient Egypt, too? Wouldn't that be exciting! :)

I totally agree with you that all three series are amazing. I simply can't wait for the final book in the Inheritance Cycle, and I really really can't wait for the other books in the Percy Jackson series. I do agree that they have the similarity of being a fantasy series, but I don't really see any other similarity other than magic. Both Artemis Fowl and Percy Jackson have magic and the modern world mixed together, but the Inheritance Cycle would be considered high fantasy...if you liked these books though, and Harry Potter, I would recommend any book by Brandon Sanderson or the Mortal Coils series by Eric Nylund. Happy reading, and thanks for the recommendations! :)

I loved this series!!! The first book was just so sad...I was filled with so much hope for her, that she could change what she saw, but it was so sad seeing her hopes dashed...:(

I loved the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy!!! Maggie Stiefvater is an amazing writer! When she was describing the candy shop scene in Shiver, I simply was shocked by how I could actually feel and smell everything in that store by how she described it. I've seen Nightshade, and Need and the Blue Blood series, but I don't really like those kind of vampire/werewolf stories, I'm more into the Anne Rice/Bram Stoker kind of vampires, or the kind of lycanthropes that are of the more vicious nature, like in Blood and Chocolate. I've read Paranormalcy, and I really liked it, so I can't wait for the next book to read. The Immortal series were good, but I really don't want to read another recycled story about vampires in general...they've gotten too predictable for me...Thanks for the recommendations, and hopefully there will be more! :)
