I like Animal Farm and 1984 by George Orwell. I also liked a Series of Unfortunate Events and was sad to see it end. It made want to read all these novels so I could get the references. I also liked the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.

I used to like Hary Potter up to the 4th book and then it went downhill from there, in my opinion.

I really like Generation Dead at the moment. Oh, and HIVE. They obviously didn't want anyone to know that one of the people who escaped was Artemis Fowl :laughing: I only have the first H.I.V.E. book and I REALLY want to know if Otto is related to Number One... Anybody here know?
I also like the diamond brother series by Anthony Horowitz

OH IS THIS POST DEAD???
I love Artemis Fowl (the series, duh
)

You want HIVE spoilers? Are you sure? Leave it for the suspense - it builds up so well! Rogue coming out in May, squeeeee! I'm so excited for it! (Rogue is book 5).
Thankyou for my avvie, Rain! I luv it!!! :laughing:

Book...five? I only have the first two! And that's only because they don't sell book three+ here in the US. It sucks!

Oh. and, in case you couldn't tell, H.I.V.E. is my fave book series other than AF. Anything by yhe author of Howl's Moving Castle comes at a close second though! :D

If poetry weren't in my life, I'd find it.
If all my friends up and left me, I'd make new ones.
My life is a colorful thing, and nothing will make it grey.

HIVE is pretty much at the top of my list as well - order three+ off an international site, and read them! They're amazing! In my opinion, Escape Velocity and Dreadnought are even better, by quite a way, than Higher Institute and Overlord Protocol. If you read the Amazon thing (after 3 and 4, it's got spoilers) then you'll see that it looks set up to be amazing as well!

Did you read the Chrestomanci books by Diana Wynne Jones (author of Howl's Moving Castle)? I thought they were even better, especially The Lives of Christipher Chant.
Thankyou for my avvie, Rain! I luv it!!! :laughing:

I think the following make my top 5 not including HP and AF:

Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
The Tortall series by Tamora Pierce
The Great and Terrible Beauty series by Libba Bray
The Robert Langdon series by Dan Brown
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (I forgot the guy's real name)
The Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer (just kidding, they are definitely not on my top 5, or top 50)

Yeah I read the first 2 chapters of the second one on the hive website. The game on that site is very hard. I wanted to buy it but they only had the third one and I wanted to read them in order.
I love Artemis Fowl (the series, duh
)

I'm not a big fan of the series' set just post-RotJ, but I love the Legacy of the Force and Fate of the Jedi series. I read those avidly as they come out.
Thankyou for my avvie, Rain! I luv it!!! :laughing:
