I loved The Help, The Room, The Hunger Games trilogy, The Night Circus, and Still Alice.... Looking for some other good book suggestions for what to read next!

is a great book that kept me invested and interested in it til the end. It's a huge, fat book that I loved and couldn't put down.

I also enjoyed Summer Rental about a group of friends who take a beach house trip together.

Legend by Marie Lu, I think, I really liked it. Different from hunger games yet alike.

Opened my eyes to understand what's really going on in the mind of a special ed. student.

One Good Dog and am reading The Orphan Master's Son which I can't put down.

One Good Dog is about a less than admirable man and a neglected and abused pit bull who save each other. Its told in part from the dog's point of view.

The Orphan Masters Son is set in North Korea which in itself is facinating. Its very well written and just a darn good story.

I have to agree with Ms. KKD about Divergent--great book. Can't wait for May 1 for the next one.

If you like that sort of teen/young adult fantasy genre, I recommend Jame's Patterson's Witch and Wizard trilogy. Or the Maximum Ride series.

I always find the best book recommendations on PT! I've already put them on my Nook List!

For those of you who mentioned Out of My Mind have you read Sahara Special? We read it in one of my SpEd classes - amazing young adult book from the point of view of a girl who's placed in SpEd - and about the power of teachers who see the person not the diagnosis....

The House of the Wind by Titania Hardie. It was a little difficult to get into because I started it while still in school, but have really gotten into it now. Takes place in Italy and goes back and forth between the lives of two women - 1 lives in the 1300s and the other in present day. I'm almost 1/2 way through and I'm still trying to figure out how the two will be connected, but it has been interesting!

Takes place early 1900's. Starts in Italy and moves to NYC and later Minnesota. Very well written.
