When I was younger, I read a lot of Warriors (usually referred to as "Warrior Cats") by Erin Hunter. More recently, I've read three books that I quite enjoyed: How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster, A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah, and Columbine by Dave Cullen. I recommend all, but the last two discuss graphic violence if that is something you want to avoid.

So how about you? Manga and graphic novels count too if that's your thing.

Islamic books, when I was young (over 6 years old) I used to read a lot of Islamic books about the Prophet Mohammed.

It’s sad how my favorite series is an elementary level comic called Amulet. It’s the only book that I actually can look forward to and I found it in my own school library and am starting it over again. I don’t like reading that much and this seems the perfect book as it’s short dialogues instead of pages and pages of words. Comics feel more exciting as you can see what the author wanted you to imagine in your head while reading it. The book itself if a slow-paced adventure that starts of with her living a normal life while having bloodline that is related to this otherworldly place. She meets friends and has this amulet that is kept to her. She must harness this power to save the new world she lives in while keeping her mom alive and to find a cure for her mother. Would highly recommend for some quick but entertaining series for lazy readers like me.

At the moment I am reading a book series called "The Death Gate Cycle" it is quite good, but I am starting to notice some odd religious undertones, but tbh I just want to read a book series about dragons and magical races, not any of this god mumbo jumbo in what should just be a fantasy series.

This one is extremely controversial, but I'm currently reading Hiter's Mein Kampf. I'm interested in what methods he used to get the population on his side, through his writing and his speeches.
If not, I also like the Famous Five detective series.

Interesting pick. I do like going into why people are evil or do bad things so this I dont mind. How is the book so far?

I'm not very deep in, but within the first pages there is a lot of the ideals on loop, it's constnatly repeated. I presume that if they keep repeating the ideals at this rate, that's probably how they ingrained them into the reader's minds.

Yooo my all my siblings and I are huge warriors fans!! That whole world was so nice! Other than that series though I also really enjoyed the Eragon series. My brother introduced that to me its so good. Plus Pendragon series and Percy jackson the the olympians series. Which kind of trails off to like other greek or roman heroes. They all good though

Sounds super interesting.

Tbh, I didn't like comics or graphics books when I was young and the first Comics I read were TF2 Comics and some Mangas but Amulet looks really good and it is well designed. (I also thought comics are for lazy readers too lol)

I'm also looking for some reading materials for my niece and nephew and this sounds like a great option.

The Scythe Series and the Gone series are both my personal favorites, being both Dystopian Genre, not to mention the Cirque De Freak series and Ready Player One. All of these books were recommended to me, so I would also recommend them to you to read them too

My favourite book is ⬇️

Such a good basically there was a wizard in his fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the mystery surrounding the entry of Harry's name into the Triwizard Tournament, in which he is forced to compete. F for being forced to compete
