Resolved Question: Good books for young
Any genre but mystery and horror.
Adult books as well please. I dislike classical books and the house of night series I have read and didn't like it at all. I have no preferences really. My favorite type of books are paranormal, fantasy, dark fantasy, humor, romance, and sad ones.
