Again, for all you Twilight fans, please, save it. I don't want to hear how ZOMGTWILIGHTAND*insertothertitleshere*ARETHEBESTBOOKSINTHEWORLDEDWARDCULLENISMYFICTIONALBOYFRIEND! No. I'm talking about OTHER books that you've read and adore.

Mine has got to be Pride and Prejudice.

I have no respect for the classics, sadly enough. I found Pride and Prejudice redundant... I'm probably just not into that genre yet. xD

Well, I have to say my favorite book is 'If I Just Had Two Wings'. It was wonderful.

If someone likes Twilight, shouldn't they be able to post their opinion? It's not fair to say 'besides Twilight'. Not every Twilight fan is a crazy Edward-obsessed moron.

Twilight fans are entitled to their opinions, too.. ._.

I really enjoyed Crank by Ellen Hopkins. It was very real-life, and her free verse poem style of writing in the book was amazing. :3

Oh gawsh.
D:

The Harry Potter series. <3
Animal Farm...made me laugh stupidly.
Most of Poe's stuff, though it isn't a 'book.' (Perhaps it counts...if I have a book full of Poe?)
I'm forgetting something. Gawsh, I feel stupid. What was it?

I'm still in the middle of Pride And Prejudice. :]

Oh. And scripts, though those aren't really books (unless you had a book of scripts?).

'Homecoming' by Cynthia Voigt. It's a great story about a group of children persevering against the odds set against them. Voigt cleverly mixes reality and adventure in the novel.

D:
It better count.
Because...if it's Poe stuff in a book...it is a book.

So yeah. One of the best books is The Essential Tales And Poems Of Edgar Allan Poe and surprise, surprise, it's by Poe. O:
But it's a special Barnes And Nobles book thingy. So..uh.
Haha.

Hah. Twilight.

The whole Warriors series, although Vicky's writing has gone down hill. A lot. She is practically screaming all the plot twists before they happen now, and directing it towards 8-10 year olds instead of 11-14 year olds, like she appeared to be in her first few books.

Or maybe I'm just getting older. Considering I started reading Warriors in 5th grade, and now I'm in 9th. ;-; That's a bit depressing.

Umm... Someone Like You. Or something like that. xP It was about a teenage pregnancy etc. It was wonderfully written.

Gingerbread. And Shrimp. By.... crap. I can't remember the writer. The third book in the series is, "Cupcake," but I haven't been able to get my hands on it. Yet.

I loved the first series of Warriors, but got depressing when the forest was getting destroyed.

I'm currently reading the Twilight series, but can't get the 2nd book at the school library; everyone gets it before me! And no, I'm not obsessed with Edward; on the movie, hes U-G-L-Y! (No offense who thinks hes OMFGHESSOHOT people lol!)
