    I don't really know, it depends on what you like. These are just some suggestions.

    Percy Jackson series - Rick Riordan
    Harry Potter series - J.K. Rowling
    The Shining - Stephen King

    Re: Recommend a book

    I suggest Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Suskind. I read it a while back, but I really enjoyed it. It's not exactly a "Harry Potter" or a "Twilight", though.

    If you're interested in something a bit denser but not ancient, you could go for something a bit more 19th century with Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley, or anything by Charles Dickins. As for 20th century literature, I recommend anything by Ernest Hemmingway, J.D. Salinger (he wrote other things aside from The Catcher in the Rye), or Franz Kafka... A pretty random selection of three authors, but I could go on an on about each writer's unique style. If you're not really that big on books written before 1980 (teehee ), but if you're still interested in reading some, I suggest you start with Salinger, and then move on to Hemmingway. Kafka's works can be a bit... confusing.

    , why do people keep mentioning Harry Potter. The book isn't even a great work of literature its uses are purely entertainment.

    Well, actually, Harry Potter uses some good imagery and story-telling techniques. It's just that most of the people who take the time to read Harry Potter don't see it as "literature" to be analyzed - they just see it as entertainment.

    Re: Recommend a book

    Read 1984 by George Owell (Arthur Blair).

    One of the greatest book ever written.

    A little more luck on the Nazi's side and the world could have been an exact copy of what Orwell depicted in 1984.

    Re: Recommend a book

    Hmm...You're a girl right? Well, I'm assuming you've read the Harry Potter series already so no use recommending that but anyways, I bet you would like these books:
    1. Hush Hush- Becca Fitzpatrick (there's a book coming for this series called Crescendo. Better look out for that one)
    2. The Luxe Series- Anna Godbersen (You'll like this one if you're into romance and historical stuff)
    These are the books I've read so far this summer. :D
    Hope these books suits your tastes.
