I need books :P

Alright, so I got a Kindle Fire for Christmas and since then I've been searching for a book to read, well I found one, but I finished it like the day I started reading it

Anyway, if you guys have any recommendations, it'd be completely appreciated (:

And just in case you need to ask, I like...

Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Sweet Romance stories (but not any that's like... sex every other scene -_-)
Most Classics

Er... I just realized I think I'd be better off telling you the ones I don't like, but I'm too lazy to erase what I've already written, so ignore that

I dislike:
Zombies
Sensless Murder (unless it's a mystery novel)
Anything morally wrong (again, unless it's a mystery)

Uh yeah, that pretty much sums it up So if you could help me fill my Kindle, I'd be much obliged. d^________^b

Want nothing morally wrong? I strongly suggest Marquis de Sade's The 120 Days of Sodom.

But no really, there are too many books out there. Suggest a few names you love and ones you hate.

Yeah, "Morally Wrong" is kind of vague.

Well I understand that morally wrong is an extremely broad topic, but I'm talking about things you'll get thrown into prison for.

But here's a simplified list of a few books I like...

The Locker Room by Amy Lane (just finished this book and oh my god <3 )
Eragon
Harry Potter
Pendragon
To Kill a Mockingbird
Star Wars (depending on the author, there are a few that aren't so good :P )
Hero by Perry Moore

And the list could go on for years, but I'd say that's well enough to see a little bit...

and... Zombies = me barfing.

I think Twilight fits in all three categories, if you haven't already read it.

I'd recommend The Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett. It's historical fiction, with all the greatest types of stories woven into it: romance, mystery, action, etc. It easily tops my own personal favourites list.

I'm re-reading The Hobbit now. It just gets better every time; I guess that's why it's my all-time favorite. Go grab that one!

...Twilight...

It's Watson, but he forgot to Watson his post. Watson is always Watsoning even when he forgets to Watson his Watson. What What!

On topic:
The Drizzt novels by Salvatore.
The Sword of Truth novels by Goodkind.
The Noble Dead Saga by the Hendees.

No one ever seems to have heard of the Noble Dead books, but they're fantastic. They're great medieval, vampire fantasy. It's an ongoing series that's still being made, so I guess someone other than me must be buying them. :P
I don't really know what to say about the series without getting spoilerish, but it's a personal favourite of mine.

I'd recommend all of the Halo novels. Except Glasslands, unless you're a Halo EU fan, I wouldn't recommend that one.

I just read the Hunger Games series. Friggin' phenomenal.


And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.

OMG Jedi Knight 4!!!

My younger cousin has been asking me to read those books. I told her the only way I'd read them is if she paid for the books :P
