Hey, Wanna recommend some books for me?
Topic: Hey, Wanna recommend some books for me?
April 21, 2019 / By Valary Question:
On Friday I am heading off on a mission trip to Ecuador and as middle class air travel would have it, we're expecting about 25+ hours there and back of downtime. Downtime as in flights, delays, being in the air, etc
I'm looking for some books to keep me occupied, so I'd love some recommendations.
I'm most interested in:
-New and upcoming popular series. The kind of stuff with an internet following that a lot of people know about and like (suggest Fifty Shades and I'll eat you)
-Fantasy. Preferably something centered around humans (or human-like people) rather than actual mythical creatures. I LOVED the Books of Pellinor if anyone can recommend something like that!
-Something like Kim Possible?? I just finished watching that series and loved it! I also finished Danny Phantom and am starting Totally Spies, so any books with those kinds of themes are loved!
I'd especially like something uplifting, but the book doesn't have to be. Please nothing with heavy heavy romance. Romance in the background is cool, but I prefer more plot driven books.
Thanks for all your help in advance!
I used to read manga a lot, but it's too short for a long plane ride like the one I'll be on. Thank you though!

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif by Rick Riordan (It has been made into a movie and the second "Sea of Monsters" is soon to be made into a movie as well)
Upstate New York, 2005. Sixth-grader Percy Jackson, the son of Poseidon and a mortal mother, attends a summer camp for demigods. After Percy angers Zeus, his friends Grover, a satyr, and Annabeth, daughter of Athena, join him to resolve the problem.
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.
All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost—and the ghost saw me.
Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? It's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House . . . before its skeletons come back to haunt me.
Mortal Insturments sereis by Casandra Clare (This is also being made into a movie)
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know...

Check out Manga! Manga is amazing! If you like Kim Possible you might like Hellsing, it's a bit bloody, but it's about a spy/detective.

No, I don't. There's no way my attention span will hold out long enough to read that damn essay.
edit: I felt bad and read some of it. You need a therapist, asap.
