Books you really should read-- Part One

Erec Rex: Simon and Schuster just bought the series with an eight-book deal. Yes, that means something. Kaza Kingsley's story of Erec Rex and his many trials in Alypium is what could one day be a huge thing. This series is for the ages-- and for all ages. The first book, The Dragon's Eye and its sequel, The Monsters of Otherness are already out, and the third volume, The Search for Truth, comes out June 30, 2009.

My rating: 10/10

Harry Potter: This goes without saying. Some day down the road, these books will be known as literary classics for their ability to enrapture the minds of readers all over the world. The entire series is out, and author J. K. Rowling's next book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, comes out December 4.

My rating: 10/10

The Inkheart Trilogy: An extremely solid trilogy by German author Cornelia Funke asks the question "What is books could come to life?". And from there, the story progresses. The final book, Inkdeath, came out just recently, but the movie of the first volume, Inkheart, will be released January 23, 2009.

My rating: 9/10

Charlie Bone (or Children of the Red King): While these books may look like Harry Potter, the story contained within their pages is quite fresh, original, and fun to read. The first seven books are out, and the eighth and final one, Charlie Bone and the Red Knight, is set to come out next fall.

My rating: 9.5/10

PENDRAGON: This series is massive. There are nine books so far chronicling Bobby Pendragon's adventures across all of Halla (the blanket term for all of the universes), and the story is upbeat and epic at the same time. Fantastic. There are three prequels set to come out next spring, and the tenth and final book, The Soldiers of Halla, will be released May 12, 2009.
My rating: 10/10
