In two days, I am going on a boat for nine continuous hours. I'll be on holiday for a week and then I'll be returning on said boat for another nine continuous hours.
I only have so much 3G on my iPhone/iPad so I decided I'll take a book to read.
I have been contemplating on which series to read but alas, I cannot come to a decision, so I am asking you forumers.

Inheritance Series; It consists of four books with lots of pages (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr and Inheritance). It also consists of lots of challenging words. :c

Lost Dragon Chronicles; It consists of five books with not as much pages (The Fire Within, Icefire, Fire Star, The Fire Eternal and Dark Fire). It also conists of less challenging words.

Which series should I take? (Not implying I'll finish any given series at any point in time on my holiday let alone eighteen hours on boat)

Please, stop suggesting series' that aren't written above. ;-;

The Maze Runner series... all 4 books are masterpieces. Will never regret reading those books in your life.

There's always One Piece Manga though. :whistling:

Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451
S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders
Edward Bloor's Tangerine

Sure, they're all novels, but believe me when I say they're good. Though all 3 don't have the best endings, they have a pretty good plot in general.

I'll try remembering other books, meanwhile those are the ones I recommend.

Read the Divergent series (If you haven't already done so), it's really good. The Maze Runner series is fairly good.

Have you read the books (Hoot, Scat, Flush, Chomp) by Carl Hiassen? They are good, but depending on what you like to read, this may also not be the best pick.

If you're into historical fiction, I would recommend We All Fall Down. It's a book about the 2001 World Trade Centre attacks. It's pretty good but if you're sensitive to that topic, then don't. It's also kinda short.

Divergent! that book is great

Those are my favorite books of all time :

- The Great Gatbsy, by Francis Scott Fitzgerald
- Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck

Both are extremly well written, you really should read them.
