I absolutely love reading, although lately
I haven't had time to read very much lately.
Any Rick Riordan Book:
He's the author of the Percy Jackson series and The Heroes of Olympus series and The Kane Chronicles. My absolute favorite of these three is The Heroes of Olympus series; the fourth book even comes out in October!

Update: I've started reading The House of Hades and it is freaking amazing!

Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling:
I love the movies a lot but i love the books even more. There is so much in the books that the movie misses or ignores. Like Harry's sassiness, and most comedic aspects are lost.
What's extremely exiting is that there is going to be a new T.V. series set 70 years before Harry Potter in New York based on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Divergent by Veronica Roth:
This is sort of like The Hunger Games. It takes place in a dystopian world where people live in one of five factions, Candor, Abnegation, Erudite, Amity, and Dauntless. Every year a ceremony is held where each child born 16 years ago must choose which faction they want to live for the rest of their lives. After the choosing they must go through initiation, if they don't complete it or give up they become Factionless (which is basically homeless).

John Green Books:
His books have definitely blown up within the teenage population recently. The Fault in Our Stars, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and Looking For Alaska. Of these my favorite is The Fault in Our Stars.

The Mortal Instruments, The Dark Artifices, and The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare:
These are all three separate series from author Cassandra Clare. There was a movie recently made of the first book in The Mortal Instruments, City of Bones. It is about a race of people are descendants of angels and they live all around the world protecting 'mundanes' from demons, vampires, werewolves, faeries, and the like.

I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak:
I can't even describe how much I love this book, it has a little bit of romance, a little action, a lot of comedy and a huge message to get across. It tells of the drastic transformation of underaged cabdriver, Ed Kennedy. My URL is even derived from Ed's dog, The Doorman.

Dr. Birds Advice For Sad Poets by Evan Roskos:
This book is tied with I Am The Messenger for my favourite book. Dr. Birds is about a young boy living through anxiety and depression and just trying to cope with life and find a purpose in his life. This novel basically is a parallel to my own life, which is maybe why I love it so much. Nearly every detail has happened in my life or probably will happen. It is written in a nearly poetic form and focuses around Walt Whitmans works, particularly A Song Of Myself. James, the main character, has admirable passion for music, and photography, and poetry, and hugging trees.
