a Recent book I read was It's kind of a Funny Story. they made a movie about it. it's extremely good. there's a whole bunch of other favorite of mine. but there's not enough time in the world to talk about all of them.
I love all of the Harry Potter books. How I Live Now is really good too. Also The House of the Scorpion. And Lord of the Flies. And The Dragon Keeper. And Holes. and The Hunger Games triology. and The City of Ember. and- how many are we allowed to list?
Hmm... favorite book. That is really difficult. At this second, it's "The Two Princesses of Bamarre." I realize that the book is meant for 10-12 year olds, and I am 17, but it has a very good plot and is fantastically written. I will also always always always favor the Harry Potter series.
