Have a look at Nina’s bookshelf. She’s read and reviewed 11 of the 100 books and her favourite three books at the moment are The Hunger Games, Skellig and The Dark is Rising.
Nina writes that The Hunger Games “is a dramatic full of action book where the only rule is kill or be killed!” Of The Dark is Rising she says that it’s “exciting, scary and terrifying to read at night!”
And if you enjoy scary books, here’s another recommendation: Alan Garner’s The Weirdstone of Brisingamen, also part of the 100, is a marvelous book, similar in many ways to The Dark is Rising, featuring the most extraordinary collection of murderous creatures of darkness. Why not give it a try?
