All these book choices are all the same , 'the hunger games etc , these books means nothing.

I recommend if you are into good literature , 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' by Oscar Wilde , 'The Importance of being Earnest' , and 'Lady Chatterley's lover'.

I would definitely recommend "Many lives, many masters". You may or may not believe in reincarnation and stuff, but this book will change your perspective of life. You will stop fearing death and start looking at things in a much more broader perspective.

Crank by Ellen Hopkins.
I'm not sure you'd even be allowed to read that in school. But it shows
the side of the world that alot of people don't see. Including the pain
of getting yourself into drugs.

I'd have to say 1984 by George Orwell, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and the Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis (I know trilogy means three books but still, it's a great and original story that wouldn't be complete if you only read the first book). And no, the last one doesn't have anything to do with the movie of the same title or The Beatles song.

Gibran was almost required reading in the '60s, I hope to see his works make a comeback with the young readers in the USA. Thanks for mentioning him, here.

The alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It really made me think about life and tiny little coincidences that we are almost always unaware of.

Cold Coffee by Ahmet Batman, Turkish writer. I haven't read it yet so i can't say anything about it but many people say that it's a great novel about men, women and love.

And i personally reccomend Rizzoli&Isles series by Tess Gerritsen. Definitely successful books for crime fiction lovers.

You should read books about countries you’re about to visit.

You should read books about historical events you don’t know anything about.

You should read books about things you already know a little about.

HUNGER GAMES= A WASTE OF TIME. I read all three of these books and they were awful. I don't know if i just dont like to read or what. But there are good books out there. How about The Laughing Circus, Matteo Alacran, and the Left Behind series.
