Thoroughbred series by Johanna Campbell(I think the earlier ones are the best)
Percy Jackson and the Olympian series by Rick Riordan
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
The House of Night series by PC and Kirstin Cast
Black for Remembrance by Carlene Thompson
The Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix
And books by the authors Sarah Dessen
And books by the author Jodi Piccoult (sp?)
I know a lot of the first ones are more for kids, but sometimes you just have to take a step back from reality.
And if you can survive it. Try reading The Scarlet Letter.
I'll think of more later.
"And somewhere in the northwoods darkness a creature walks upright. And the best advice you may ever get is: Don't go out at night..."
