I haven't always been enchanted by the idea of reading, but when I did, these are the books that captivated me the most. Perhaps you might find them interesting as well, or you'll find you've already read them.

1. "Harry Potter"

Wizards. Magic. Wands. The absolute opposite of what our world is. Maybe that's why it's so intriguing.

2. "Twilight"

Yes, it's a bit far-fetched that vampires sparkle, but these books captured the hearts of many young teenage girls, myself included.

3. "Throne of Glass"

My friend, Kimmy, just recently showed me this series, and I'm absolutely in love. If you like strong female protagonists, I highly recommend you read this.

This series messes with your brain. TOTALLY WORTH IT.

5. "Storm and Silence"

Written by Rob Thier, this story follows the footsteps of a young woman who dresses as a man in order to work. The beginning is a little dry, but I promise it picks up, and you will not be able to put these characters out of your mind.

6. "The Inheritance Cycle"

You probably don't recognize the title, but this is actually the Eragon series. Remember that book? Yeah, absolutely amazing.

If you're into dystopian societies, you really should read this. Especially since the movies are nearly just as great as the books.
