Cover ArtThirteen reasons why [sound recording] : [a novel]
by Asher, Jay, 1975-
They actually have the book version of this in the library, but not in the list for this thing. It's a little weird. I should warn you, this book is PG13. But it's worth reading in a sad sort of way.   posted Feb 11, 2013 at 5:54PM

Cover ArtThe maze runner

Cover ArtRedwall
by Jacques, Brian
This series has about fifteen books, but they're out of order. I got lost around the fourth one, but the first one is really worth reading. The first, chronologically, is Lord Brocktree, but I don't know what the next one is. This is like the fourth or something.   posted Jan 24, 2013 at 6:52PM

Cover ArtThe 90-day novel : unlock the story within
by Watt, Alan, 1965-
There are a number of "writing program" books, such as The Weekend Novelist(do not use that. It doesn't work), but this is the only one I've known that works. But be warned...it takes a lot of commitment to do a day-by-day program.   posted Jan 24, 2013 at 6:41PM

Cover ArtWhat would your character do? : personality quizzes for analyzing your character

Cover ArtThe fire in fiction : passion, purpose, and techniques to make your novel great

Cover ArtBird by bird : some instructions on writing and life
by Lamott, Anne.

Cover ArtThe writer's guide to character traits : includes profiles of human behaviors an
by Edelstein, Linda.
I found this book immensely helpful, but I should warn you: it has profiles of stalkers, criminals, and some creepy stuff. But it is incredibly helpful, so get it and don't read it in your bedroom.   posted Jan 24, 2013 at 6:31PM

Cover ArtThe Writer's digest guide to science fiction & fantasy

Cover ArtConflict & suspense
by Bell, James Scott.
My opinion when it comes to books on writing is: if it helps you at all, it's worth reading. I'm putting this comment here because this book is more than worth reading, but I don't have much to say about it.   posted Jan 24, 2013 at 6:29PM

Cover ArtWriter's market.
If you are in any way considering publication or even thinking it might be a nice idea someday, I would advise getting the most recent version of Writer's Market. I know the catalog has Writer's Market 2012 and possibly 2013.   posted Jan 24, 2013 at 6:28PM

Cover ArtCeres, celestial legend. Vol. 1, Aya
by Watase, Yuu, 1970-

Cover ArtAstro boy. 1
by Tezuka, Osamu, 1928-1989

Cover ArtInuYasha. 1
by Takahashi, Rumiko, 1957-

Cover ArtCirque du Freak. Volume 1
by Shan, Darren.
12 Volumes; Based on the popular horror novels by the same name. This is a hardcore horror manga. Read it if you're into that sort of thing, but be warned that the ending kind of stinks.   posted Jan 6, 2013 at 3:07PM

Cover ArtDragon drive. Vol. 1, D-break!!
by Sakura, Ken-ichi.
14 Volumes; There's a virtual reality game and - wait for it - it's actually real! But funny characters and a twist help freshen up this incredibly old premise.   posted Jan 6, 2013 at 3:06PM

Cover ArtAnimal Land. 1

6 volumes and counting...um...you won't really get what the story is about until the sixth volume, but what the heck, that's normal right?   posted Jan 6, 2013 at 3:05PM

Cover ArtOne Piece. Vol. 1, Romance dawn

Cover ArtRave master. Volume 1
by Mashima, Hiro, 1977-
35 Volumes; A wackjobby manga but also kind of awesumm. The premise is amazing. If anyone's read Fairy Tail, this is by the same author. Speaking of which, if anyone's read it, tell me if it's good or not.   posted Jan 6, 2013 at 3:03PM

Cover ArtNaruto. Vol. 1, The tests of the ninja
by Kishimoto, Masashi, 1974-
60 Volumes and counting; It's starting to get kind of weird, because the artist is dragging every volume out of us. But by the time you get started reading this, I'm sure he'll have gotten better. Right? 3 months later: Oh, yeah. It got better.   posted Jan 6, 2013 at 3:00PM

Cover ArtGuru Guru Pon-Chan. 1

8 volumes...? I'm not sure. This one's about a dog that turns into a human so she can talk to the boy she loves...also a little PG, but fun in a goofy way.   posted Jan 6, 2013 at 2:59PM

Cover ArtTegami bachi. Volume 1, Letter and letter bee = Letter bee

Before ANYONE gets this out, you should know that it's really for mature teens. Intercourse and marijuana are the two main topics of the book.   posted Dec 14, 2012 at 9:01PM

Cover ArtThe golden compass
by Pullman, Philip, 1946-
Can I admit something? At first, I thought this must be a formula-made paranormal fiction, because they made it into a movie, but really, it's not. I tried to hate it, but I got swept up in the immense awesummness of the story.   posted Dec 6, 2012 at 4:40PM

3 Volumes with Follow-Up series w/ 3 more volumes; by the CLAMP quartet, a really talented group of mangaka. A classic magical girl story with a mascot that's the greatest ever.

Cover ArtSilent spring
by Carson, Rachel, 1907-1964

Cover ArtThe lion, the witch and the wardrobe
by Lewis, C. S. 1898-1963.
If you’re reading the Chronicles of Narnia books I would suggest reading them in chronological order (the history of Narnia, not the order in which he wrote them). The order is: The Magician’s Nephew; The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe; The Horse and His Boy; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; and the Last Battle.   posted Aug 10, 2012 at 8:50PM

by Togashi, Yoshihiro
As a manga fan, I'm doing my best not to add every great manga to this list. But this one should be read by everyone. True, it's 'backwards' because it's japanese, but it just takes a little practice. Read every volume and i'll proclaim you a Manga Champion.   posted Aug 9, 2012 at 7:03PM
