    Yeah, Darren Shan is great.
    A Stranger is Watching by Mary Higgins Clark is also pretty good.

    Demonata is pretty sick (in every since of the word; good and bad). I would recommend it I suppose.


    My favorite series so far is The Binding of the Blade. It's Christian based. It's like LOTR, but not a rip-off. In some aspects I like it better than LOTR.

    LOL @ me supporting Demonata and a Christian series. -.-;

    Anything by Jeremy Clarkson :lol:

    I loved Dave Pelzers books.
    I tend to forget the books I read, I borrow a lot from my sister.

    Just finished reading The Hobbit this week, well actually I started it Saturday and finished it Thursday. A-mazing.

    I might look in to Demonata, from the preview I read in the Darren Shan books it seems to be interesting. Also Animorphs is pretty good (but it's not horror, and I forget the authors name). I love anything written by R.L. Stine. The Fear Street series is absolutely brilliant! The spinoffs of Fear Street are also epic (like Fear Street sagas, which goes back to when Simon Fear was alive), but they are a little too gorey for my taste.

    Better than the first three?
    Edit: Apple, are you a fan of horror? If you are, then pick up R.L. Stine's novels. It doesn't matter which one though, they lack continuity.

    Whats everyones most embarassing book they have read?

    For me its got to be Bridget Jones Diary the second book i think it was. I never watched the films and it was only because i was waiting for the water to heat up for a shower that i started to read it. And oddly it was a good book.

    Chicken Soup for the Soul. If seen reading that at school, I'd probably die of embarrassment (the people I know are immature, and the cover isn't exactly "manly", lol). But it helps with stress, so meh.

    Although I enjoyed Cell, I felt as if it was too much like The Birds. In a way it was the exact same thing.

    But still a good book.

    (I haven't read too many books as of late though)

    The remake of The Counte of Monte Cristo was brilliant it was a really well done film.
