I loath Harry Potter. Absolutely loath. I read books 1-5 and have seen like, 3 of the movies, and I hated them all. Yes, I know. I'm a complete freak. Also, I wasn't a huge fan of Little Women.

Never say you feel like a freak for liking/not liking something that isn't the general concensus. I mean, I didn't like the Dark Knight. (Yes, I didn't like THAT movie), shouldn't make me feel like a freak (Altough I WILL retreat to my bunker for a bit now......)

You're not a freak, Tea, Eragon is supposedly really popular and awesome but I really hate it.

And let's not forget the grandmommy of all conflicting opinions on the internet: Twilight. Some hate it, some love it.

Oh. THAT. Yes, that was probably the greatest disappointment I've encountered movies based on books wise.

As far as books go, Twilight was probably the biggest disappointment ever, imo. 'Nuff said. {Oh, and I liked the first two books in the Eragon series...not a big fan of the third. Which is actually supposed to be the most popular. So you're not a freak at all, Teagosaurus.}

I haven't even read the third. I wasn't really a huge fan of the 2nd. The first was awesome though.

And now, my list. Some are quite self explanatory.

The Usual Rules- Joyce Maynard (About a girl going through the struggles of losing her mom in 9/11. It's written amazingly, and it made me cry.)

For Freedom- Kimberly Brubaker Bradley (About a girl who was a spy for the Resistance in WWII)

The Inkheart Trilogy- Cornelia Funke (They're amazing. That's all I can say.)

The Books of Pellinor- Allison Croggen (I don't even know how to describe these. Um, they're about a girl name Maerad. There, how's that? I'm sure if you enjoy the Wizard of Oz and/or Wicked, you'd like these.)

The Oz Books -L. Frank Baum (No, not just the Wizard of Oz. Read them ALL. There's 12 I do believe. I've read 8 I think, and all of them are fab. Strange, but fab.)

Alice in Wonderland- Charles Lutwidge Dodgson

The Secret Garden- Frances Hodgson Burnett

Black Beauty
- Anna Sewell

Maximum Ride Series.
- James Patterson (Okay, so 4 and 6 aren't that hot, but it's a good series.)

My Sister's Keeper- Jodi Picoult (About a girl who sues her parents for medical emancipation when she is expected to donate a kidney to her sister who has leukemia. If you've seen the movie, great. Good for you. The book is 500 times better.)

Also, anything Sara Dessen has written. Every single book of her's I've read, I've never been disappointed.

For Tea's list I agree with most of books under the Wizard of Oz(I've only read 3 of these though, most of them are REALLY hard to find here), but I haven't read all of the Maximum Ride books, which I don't really like or dislike. Lost interest after the second book. I really enjoyed the Alex Cross adult thriller books by James Patterson though. I haven't read any Sarah Dessen either.

For Jahn's list, everything down to again, the Wizard of Oz, minus Heidi, which I've only technically read a picture book version. I've read one Ramona book, which I liked, but wasn't really drawn to the others. And I liked Noughts and Crosses. Great series. The rest I haven't read, butI've been meaning to read the Westing Game.

LOL

Offtopic:

...Uh, according to Wikipedia...yes. But I suggest we drop that matter at this, it's not exactly an MC-appropriate topic.

*Sorry about that, i read it on a text of my photography class and wanted to know if anyone knows if it was true... ok, its buried.

**And why are you so mean about twilight... i mean I'm sure that its the best trilogy books for a dark cold outdoor night...
Yeah, I mean.. make them a pile and set them on fire, you will be warm and with light for a while, i think that you don't even need gasoline to keep it burning... the B.S works as fuel LOL

I think I read an avatar like that once:
I love Twilight!
The books make a good bonfire.

I found a bunch of these, but I know there are some Twilight fans on the board, and I don't want to spread any negativity.

Aw, really? They were all lined up all nice in my school library so I just started working my way through them. And that's actually something, because my library has nothing ever.

Ohmagod, I forgot a very important series!

The Hunger Games Series- Suzanne Collins (Definitely what I like to call a can't-put-down-until-you're-finished-even-if-it's-3am-and-your-about-to-pass-out-from-exhaustion kind of book.)
