Hey I just want to say thank you, I've been longing for not so boring books myself, am 19 years old and I'm a big Percy Jackson fan! Proudly so! I've read the all so famous harry potter series and of course the twilight series. I like books such as the black dagger brotherhood series, the kane chronichles series, the heroes of olympus, mercy thompson series, night huntress series also....... They are different but pretty great, guess I am a series fanatic. Anyways here are a list of my To Read books, don't know if they'll interest u too:Elemental Assasin Series by Jennifer EstepDresden Files Series by Jim Butcher Secrets of the Immortal Nicholad Flammel Series by Michael ScottHis Dark Materials Series by Phillip Pullman The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne CollinsMillenium Series by Stieg LarssonO I think the Host is a great book, its original and not boring at all, u should give it a chance. Its by Stephenie Meyer and its completely different to twilight. Happy reading, I'll try out the books u suggested. Thanks!!!!
