I probably can...What kind are you in to? Fantasy? Romance? Humor?

how about a comedy romance in fantasy world? Something teenagey-young adult. Is the Princess Diaries actually a book?

Yep, they are. The movie was based off the books. I believe there's 3-4 in the series. I haven't read them though...

Well... Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging is the first in a great teenage/humor/romance series... ;)

And Harry Potter is great, you can even invent your own romance ... ;)

I just started reading this pirate book.. I forget what it's called, but it's one REALLY long poem .. I can actually understand it, I can't do that with most poems... It's really good though!!! Gah! I can't remember the name... *hits herself*
Hold on.... I have to go find it...................
Ok.. got it! It's the Voyage of the Arctic Tern!! It's SO good!!!
Also, the Chronicles of Narnia are very good, I just read those... And If you're into mysteries, My mom says that the DaVinci Code is good as well...
The book Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle-Stop Cafe is pretty good as well. I had to read it for school and I rather enjoyed it... All the other ones I was forced to read were stoopyd.... erm...
If I'm not boring you out of your mind yet, The Woman in the Wall is a good book, I've read that multiple times...
Anna of Byzantium is a good book as well. It's about a princess whose little brother really pisses her off :P
The Series of Unfortunate Events is good reading as well... It really amazes me that the author can think up so many bad things that can happen to someone...
Paperquake is a good mystery as well.. It's a timetravel mystery.. Things that happen in the past link to the main character's life. Letters warn her about an earthquake and stuff.. It's actually very cool...
You're bound to find something you like out of these :P lol

There were some books I read in high school. They were comedy-fantasy. It's a series. The authors name is Patricia W-somthing.
The first on in the series is called Dealing With Dragons, then their Searching For Dragons, Calling on Dragons, & Talking To Dragons. (I believe that's the order)

They're about this out of the ordinary princess who choses to live with a dragon. Their funny & entertaining.

The Giver by Lois Lowry is short, yet interesting. its about a perfect world where people live perfect lives and don't really experience any pain. but one person from each generation is chosen to remember all of the pain and memories of what happened in the world before.

Have you already read lord of the rings? if not, there yeah go.
IF you under 14. i would check out the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis.
I would even read those now.

I'd say The Mists of Avalon if you want a book that'll take up your whole summer. And I really reccomend 'The Song of The Lioness' series by Tamora Pierce. They're brilliant. :)

OMG i LOVE the daughters of the moon books and i am waiting for the 10th one. and T*Witches, even my mom reads them (and i dyed my hair like one of the main characters, except a different color). if you are in your early teens they appeal to you more. heheh, i got my friend into those books. and cirque du freak, my friends really like that now that ive shown it to them. and..the hitchhickers guide to the galaxy is really funny.

they basically tell a series of unfortunate events that happen to these three orphans. and it never gets better for them, only worse.

Post by: Chrysanthemus on September 02, 2003, 05:18:45 pm

I would recommend The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Princess's Diaries, and The Lord of the Rings, however, it depends of the book style you preffer :)

Post by: shooting_star on September 02, 2003, 05:29:43 pm

THE SEER AND THE SWORD BY VICTORIA HANLEY its brilliant!!!!!!!!! and I agree with silmewen that a series of unfortunate events is a good series but it does not have any romance is not set in fantasy........... but still good read ;D
