That is the BEST ONE OF ALL!!!

I also love the Georgia N books! Laugh out loud funny.

Percy Jackson- adore and they are aimed at tween boys!

Twilight (hate them now but devoured them all in a 3 days)

Judith McNaught- sappy bodice ripper type (Im very sorry to say- but can only take these in very small dosage!)

I love the Georgia Nicholson series! I even got some friends into it. One is a 25 year old big guy, and he definitely got some weird looks when he went to the library asking where Dancing in My Nuddy-Pants was located.

I also read Twilight and liked it. I would never admit that in real life.

Forgot about this thread until now. I'm so glad I'm not alone!

That's too funny about your friend, Copasetic!

Oh god lol! I tried reading the first book. It was soooo cheesy and badly written I cringed the whole way through. For such a 'hard-ass' vampire he sure does act like a pathetic sissy!

Im sorry I couldn't stand it! The characters were so one-dimensional and annoyingly wet!

For me, the Warriors series by Erin Hunter, because I inexplicably fall in love with children's books.

I find 'teenage' adventure books some of the best out there. I get bit bored with some 'adult' books lol

Probably why Harry Potter and Percy Jackson are and always be some of my fav books ever (along with Meg cabot!)

I got a new bookcase this weekend so I organised all my books finally in one place- I have 28 books by meg Cabot! Its a very pink section lol

The first Kushiel trilogy by Jacqueline Carey. Not because they were badly written or anything, far from it. Carey is an incredible writer. The storyline and characters were wonderful. It's just that ...they were kind of smutty, lol. Downright kinky, to be honest. I wouldn't recommend them to my mother, or even a teenager. I probably wouldn't recommend them to anybody unless I was sure the person wouldn't get uncomfortable or offended by- shall we say... alternative intimate practices.

I LOVE Meg Cabot. I'm slowly working on my own personal collection but keep ILLing a ton of her books (my local library is shockingly lite on her catalog). One of my prize possessions is a copy of Princess Forever autographed by her my cousin gave me as a maid of honor present. I also follow Meg on Twitter. I love her tweets, she totally seems like the type of person I'd be BFF's with.

I've been very addicted to YA fiction lately, though there's a lot of supernatural out there that is getting way old. I just read Going Bovine by Libba Bray and loved it.

Trashy trashy bodice rippers like

'Ransom my heart' by Meg Cabot and, worse, Judith Mcnaught books with titles like 'Whitney my love'. Gag.

In fact I don't really like these, they irritate me, but sometimes you just need to read some really trashy, pathetic, sappy book like that, full of tiny beautiful, kind heroines who need a bad tempered, older, dark and brooding (who is naturally a sex god in bed), man, who they reform. I hate these books, the story is always the same, and the characters awful, but... I do admit to owning a few and reading them occasionally when I feel the need *blush*

Nancy Drew/ Hardy Boys Super Mysterious. Written at the height of 80s cheesiness, but so so good. Seriously considered wrapping them in some type of paper while out in public....

Percy Jackson books are aimed at boys? Please don't tell that to my 9-year-daughter, who thinks they are the best books EVER! I liked them, too, though not nearly as much as I liked the Harry Potter series.

I read a lot of books that are recommended to me by my kids. I like a lot of books that are aimed at older elementary school kids and tweens. Books for adults often have too many extremely disturbing scenes of violence. Some of my favorite books that are aimed at kids are:

the Books of Ember series- Jeanne DuPrau
Olive's Ocean- Kevin Henkes
Elsewhere- Gabrielle Zevin
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac- Gabrielle Zevin
If I Stay- Gayle Forman

I LOVED the Shopaholic series....I started reading it years ago. I'm embarrased that I'm waiting for the release of the lastest edition....

I'm embarrased to admit that I'm a HUGE Anita Blake series fan. I've read and own all 19 books.

I stalked the library for these books as a kid. Let's not forget the Babysister's Club either!
