    -Dr. Franklin's Island by Ann Halam
    -The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
    -Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
    -What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
    -The Roar by Emma Clayton
    -Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

    -The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
    -Lifted by Wendy Toliver
    -Waiting for Normal by Leslie Conner
    -Bitter End by Jennifer Brown

    Also, are there any books you read and particularly disliked? Why?

    And I disliked:
    - The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
    -Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
    -Codex by Lev Grossman

    All 3 had bad endings.

    Sooooo many!:
    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
    Persuasion by Jane Austen
    Middlemarch by George Eliot
    Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
    Possession by A.S. Byatt
    The Help by Kathryn Stockett
    Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
    The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
    The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
    The Time-Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

    Books I disliked: From Russia With Love (my first - and likely last - James Bond novel; the movies are fun, but I couldn't get past the misogyny); Tess of the D'Urbervilles (I don't mind depressing, but this book is seriously depressing); Vanity Fair (hated all the characters). That's all that come to mind. I generally am pretty picky about what I read, so I don't read a lot of books that end up disliking.

    Yay, another Lauren Myracle fan!!

    My favourites are:

    Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
    Jane Austen Was My Best Friend - Cora Harrison
    Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging - Louise Rennison
    Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen and Thirteen Plus One - Lauren Myracle
    Lily-Josephine - Kate Saunders
    Pulling Princes, Stealing Princes, Dueling Princes and Dumping Princes - Tyne O'Connell


    Books I disliked, hmm...I remember trying to get into Gossip Girl, and I loved the first one, but after that, I couldn't be bothered, as they bored me. I also really didn't like the Pretty Little Liars series after the 3rd book, which put me off of the tv show.

    Florence, Edith, Doris, Alice, Elsie, Lillian, Violet, Mabel, Ada, Evelyn
    Eva, Edna, Minnie, Martha, Amelia, Phoebe, Sylvia, Hazel, Agatha, Beatrice


    Matthew, Ernest, Louis, Christopher, Andrew, Albert, George, Joshua, James, Harry
    Freddie, Henry, Adam, Teddy, Daniel, Percy, Mark, Walter, Stanley, Liam
