I love films like The Da Vinci Code in terms of mysteries, symbols, puzzles, history, and globe traveling. Similarly, I love the Uncharted video game series for the same reasons and for the explorations of lost cities.

Any recommendations?

The Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer might interest you.

Anything by Clive Cussler. Sahara is probably the most famous of the Dirk Pitt novels.

Michael Crichton's Congo is also a pretty fun adventure book (don't let that crappy film version deter you, the book is miles better ).

1. Genesis Alpha
2. The Angel Factory by Terrence Blacker
3. The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer
4. Gregor the Overlander series by Suzanne Collins, who wrote The Hunger Games
5. The Animorphs series by K.A. Applegate
6. The Remnants series by K.A. Applegate
7. Earthseed by Pamela Sargent
8. Storm Thief by Chris Wooding-one of the gems of the literary world that, for some reason, many teens don't know about
9. The Beguilers by Kate Thompson
10. The Ark and The Xenocide Mission by Ben Jeapes
11. Interstellar Pig by William Sleator
12. Unwind by Neal Shusterman-a really good book that makes you think about many ethical issues, as well as being creepy in a good way
13. Everlost by Neal Shusterman
14. Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud
15. Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer
16. Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie by David Lubar; this is a really funny book
17. Hidden Talents by David Lubar
18. Gatekeeper Series by Anthony Horowitz
19. Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
20. The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer
21. Peeps by Scott Westerfeld-an excellent vampire novel
22. Happy Kid! by Gail Gauthier
23. Mimus by Lily Thal
24. Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones
25. Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
26. The Beguilers by Kate Thompson
27. Half-Moon Investigations by Eoin Colfer; my favorite detective story of all time, and I've read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories
28. Animorphs series by K.A. Applegate-needs some patience; the series has 54 books, but it's action-packed and really good for people who like sci-fi
29. The Ark by Ben Jeapes and it's sequel The Xenocide Mission
30. Pendragon series by D.J. MacHale
31. Deltora Quest series by Emily Rodda, as well as the following series of Deltora Shadowlands and Dragons of Deltora. They're aimed towards a younger audience, but still has enough clever plot twists so that it's really interesting even when I read it now.
32. World War Z by Max Brooks-wow I can't believe I nearly forgot this because I just read it a couple months ago and it's possibly the best zombie book every written. It's so interesting and relevant to the world we live in and so realistic that it's simply amazing. With an interesting oral history format, when I finished reading it I just sat back and thought 'wow.' and got really excited when I found out it's being made into a movie.

These are mostly YA books, apt considering that I'm fifteen. I tried to avoid the really well-known series because if they're really well-known, you've probably already read them. Also, I know this isn't a book, but I'm on a roll here so I recommend that you watch the TV show Avatar: the Last Airbender. It's the best TV show ever period. If you don't believe me just watch it; the perfect blend of action, comedy, romance, spiritualism, and plot. The best plot of any show period and can even rival most of the books on this list, and is being made into a movie trilogy. Wow, I just spent a lot of time on this list. Hope it helps!

Yeah, 1984 remember to provide a attempt. Farenheit 451 is kinda resembling that yet i did no longer rather like it. and that i comprehend Artemis hen would be an basic study for you yet i'm around you're age and that i nonetheless study the main recent one whilst it got here out because of the fact they are in simple terms witty and funky. Plus, Jonathon Stroud- i admire Bartimaeus trilogy... some great things proper there! you have good style in books! About books I write in my blog, check it

It truly doesn't matter what you read, as long as you read. Reading gives knowledge, uses your imagination, stimulates and relaxes your mind, improves memory, expands your vocabulary, exposes you to new things, places, and ideas, broadens your perspectives, etc. It is excellent for your mind. Reading is one of the best things you can do.

I recommend reading The Sun's Heartbeat: And Other Stories from the Life of the Star That Powers Our Planet by Bob Berman. I read a sample of it on Google Play, and it was really interesting.

Read a general encyclopedia, all subjects. It will have a huge impact on your mind. You will come away much more knowledgeable about the world. Here is Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition: You can read all subjects with Browse by Subject.

Fictional books, like mysteries, thrillers and romance, are good genres too. Fictional stories exercise your imagination. Whatever the setting or character, you imagine them how you want.

Google Play and Amazon are excellent places to sample books, download free books, or buy books. Don't forget about libraries and Barnes and Noble.

not sure if this is the right place but can anyone recommend any Lesbian Fiction?

I have read the The Price of Salt which I found interesting but thought Carol wasn't fleshed out enough as a character.

I will be reading The Abyss Surrounds Us and its sequal The Edge of the Abyss but they haven't come in yet.

I have no idea what I am looking for since I have just started this genre.

If you like mystery, The Murder at Vicarage by Agatha Christie is worth reading.
