How I live Now by Meg Rosoff (it a dystopia novel) Tamora Pierce is very good if you like fantasy Amelia Atwater Rhodes writes about vampires and shape shifters. Shade's Children by Garth Nix (you'll love this no matter what). Among the Hidden and Among the Betrayed are for a younger audience but they were still good.

Nobbut a Lad by Alan Titchmarsh is great - autobiography Just After Sunset by Stephen King - new one! Duma Key by Stephen King The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind is great, 11 books and a Spin off book - Debt of Bones Wizards First Rule Stone of Tears Blood of the Fold Temple of the Winds Soul of the Fire Faith of the Fallen The Pillars of Creation Naked Empire Chainfire Phantom Confessor The Dark Tower series by Stephen King 7 books with a spin off Eyes of the Dragon The Gunslinger The Drawing of the Three The Wastelands Wizard and Glass Wolves of Calla Song of Suzanna The Dark Tower

Pendragon. That is pretty much one of the best books ever, though I have to say that: Harry Potter is even better. Maximum Ride is up there. The next one comes out tomorrow. Anything by Tamora Pierce Twilight and the Uglies series are both amazing! Enjoy them =)

Some of the best sci-fi reading: Citizen of The Galaxy and Time For The Stars by Robert Heinlein; Mission of Gravity by Hal Clement; Dolphin Island by Arthur C. Clarke (who passed on this week). Z for Zacharia, Slan, Tunnel in the Sky.

Pride and Prejudice wouldn't be too easy - and it sounds like you'd enjoy it. Maybe also Sense and Sensibility and Emma. And if you like that era, you might also want to try Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. I could recommend other things if you gave specific authors you really liked. Or ask at your local library! Librarians just love this type of question! Trust me, I'm a librarian!
