    I'd suggest the Divergent Series, Looking Glass Wars and DoppleGanger Chronicles. They're all good.

    Also, find the Jaunt by Stephen King. Its creepy.

    Don't put this book on the list, but... I mean, I know the book is about a horrible and completely false topic, but I highly suggest reading the "Mein Kampf" by Adolph Hitler, not because of his opinions, but because he was just so incredibly intelligent. For example, my favorite quote of all time:

    “The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.”

    --Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

    Anyways, yeah.
    I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

    Poison you are right, he was very intelligent. He was also very passionate and believed in what he spoke.
    To himself, he wasn't a villain. This is how he recruited such an army and became the fuhrer.

    That quote is also scary, because it's slowly happening in modern day America.

    Good books to read:

    The Giver (really feeling intense, not much action)
    Lord of the Flies (also feeling intense, but it also has some very fast paced/creepy scenes.)
    The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks (Much more action, it has great story and is about assassins), Specific names being "Way of Shadows", "Shadow's Edge", and "Beyond the Shadows". This trilogy also has to do alot with people themselves.
    The Inheritance cycle, or the "Eragon" series (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance).
    This is here until I figure out what to put into my signature

    Can I recommend reading creepypastas? Just go to Creepypasta.com and search the ratings index to find the very best. Here's a hint: They're best enjoyed when drunk, and alone in a dark house. Sometimes it even makes you see things...

    The Divine Comedy.

    Its a very good read. after playing the game in the psp, I decided to read the eBook and it was FANTASTIC. Some words are hard to understand but im already hooked at this poem.

    The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell- A VERY good book.

    The Spearwielder Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore- Pretty good fantasy series

    The Circle series by Ted Dekker

    Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull

    Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley


    Do webseries count? Because if they do, I'd recommend:

    Worm by wildbow

    I shall say that Hitler was very intelligent and would love to see how history would have played out if he was around for 3 years longer only because he was expected to get to the moon in 1949 and his designs for landing on the moon where we did the shuttle and moon lander was his original idea... If we didn't take his scientists and blueprints for space America would have lost the space race

    Also America is becoming shit and I am leaving once I finish college

    Book wise now
    Eragon- it's really long but so worth reading, that book has its slow parts but when it picks up it is amazing and time passes by without realizing it
    Lord of the flies-okay that was so so... I mean all it really shows is how humans really are and that we are the real monster that we fear
    The Giver-okay not going to lie on this I only read like half the book because we were suppose to read it in 7th grade but it decent... There is another book that has the givers main character years later in a village with the baby he took with but many years later but it follows someone else and it was worth reading

    Now for a book series I'll recommend
    Halo- now it's not what you think... Halo doesn't follow the master chief around only the second book the flood does and it is just Halo one but gives more details... But Halo books are great the beginning is slow but they great and they are descriptive... The forerunner books are best ones in my opinion because they explain how this great race fell and how the humans and the Covent were allies long ago
    Hatchet- I haven't seen that book in years but I still remember it and it is a shorter book, there is a second book but it isn't as good, plus the second book you don't have to read... But Hatchet is about a boy going to visit his father in Canada and his mom gives him a hatchet to take with and the pilot dies during flight and the boy survives the plane crash (hurt badly at first) and has to survive with only what's on him and his hatchet hence where the name of the book comes from
