It all depends on what types of books you are looking for and what you're interested in. Do you like light reads? Philosophy? Self help? Spiritual? Novels? Best sellers? Fiction? Prize winners? My advice would be for you to browse the online book sites i.e. Chapters online and read some of the reviews and what other people have to say about the books you think you might be interested in. I see that you are 19 years old. I might recommend anything by Joy Fielding (light reads) or by Esther and Jerry Hicks (spiritual/self help), but as I said, it all depends on where your interests lie.

Have you tried reading the darkest powers trilogy? i'm only on the second book but they're really good set of books to read. It's a little dark but it something i would definitely recommend but don't know what type of books you like so not sure. I enjoyed them and i know someone else who also really likes them. Blessed you be

Perhaps you could peruse the Reading or the Book section of interests for myLot. You may find all kinds of suggestions for good reads in that section. Otherwise, you may tread dangerously close to asking for lists of books, which, I do believe, may be against the myLot rules. Happy myLotting!

You must read Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiosaki. It's a best seller and it's still one of the best book up to now. You won't regret reading it. After reading that book buy his second book Cash Flow Quadrant. You'll will learn a lot. I do also recommend Zahir, Brida, The Devil and Miss Prym, The fifth mountain, The pilgrimage, By the river of Piedra I sat and wept, he witch of portobello, the warriors of light and veronica decide to die. Since you're done with achemist you must read ZAHIR before anything.

It sounds like you are on a reading kick! I just read the 1st 50 shades book and I really liked it as well. It definitely was worth the hype. I personally do not like Nicholas Sparks, I mean he is ALRIGHT, but I don't typically read books like that. I like more intense crime-related (with a splash of romance, MAYBE) - such as Lisa Gardner, Tami Hoag, and James Patterson (all of which you should check out for sure - who knows? Maybe you will really enjoy the crime-mystery genre!). I find romances to be a little dull. Other than that, memoirs are always good - such as "The Glass Castle", "Wasted: A Memoir", "Smashed: A Memoir of a Drunken Girlhood", "Hunger Point", "Here's the Story" (Maureen McCormack), and so on. There are plenty. Have fun reading!

Nicholas Sparks' books are all the same, once you read one you've read them all. Every one of his stories is about two lovers, some complication keeping them apart and someone dying. You should try out The Help, The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler, Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuiper! I mean hey if you want to read Nicholas Sparks go for it, but I feel like you're trying to break away from that with saying you don't want to read the Hunger Games, Twilight, PLL or Harry Potter! Go for the underdogs! Even if The Help isn't an underdog, I think everyone should read that one.
