Heh, a friend was sitting in the corner reading A Clash of Kings while I had a ballroom dance lesson - afterwards she showed me the bit she'd been reading, which was rather NC-17, and said she kept giggling at the incongruity of this grim bit of sex compared to the elegant waltz going on in front of her xD
If you're fourteen, now would be a great time to give The Lord of the Rings a go. Don't be afraid if it takes a few tries, or if some bits seem boring - I adore LOTR but I will often skip over certain parts such as Tom Bombadil and the Barrow-Downs. You might also like to try something in a rather different genre: Pride and Prejudice or Emma by Jane Austen. They are both very funny, very witty, very engaging novels.
I almost never read a book when it comes out. LOTR existed long before I was born, after all! I read books when I discover them. Mum showed me the Empire Trilogy, and recently I discovered a friend had read the Magician trilogy. We felt it was time to swap books, so I leant her Daughter of the Empire and she got me Magician for my birthday. Her boyfriend/my friend is also reading the Empire Trilogy now and she's waiting for him to finish Servant so she can read it xD I liked reading the Empire Trilogy first as I feel they're the better-written books, and having the tantalising glimpses of the story I already knew helped keep Magician interesting when it, at times, failed to be as good a novel as Daughter/Servant/Mistress of the Empire.
If you believe everything you read, better not read.
