Default Need 10 books with 150+

So, in English class, 9th grade, I have to read 10 books that contain at least 150+ pages. If the book has 300+ pages, it counts as 2 books.

So I was hoping MyMMOGames would suggest me some books to read.
I'm mainly interested in war, action, adventure, some fantasy.

10 books.
At least 150 pages.
300+ = 2 books, 450+ = 3 books, ...

And no, no dictionaries, thesaurus, encyclopedias, or anything of the sorts < <;;
And yes, I wish I could count reading internet pages as books...

Hmm...so you need to read about 1000 pages worth of books?

Well, for something fun, I would suggest Ender's Game or the Bartimaeus trilogy. 8D

"The Red Badge of Courage"
Read it and tell me what happens. I need you to finish before August 10th, please. ;D

I'm sure it's not going to be hard to find book sin the range. Stop by your local library or bookstore and pick up any thick and interesting books you find.

9th Grade Freshman . . .
"Lord of the Flies"
"Romeo and Juliet"
"Hamlet"
"Great Expectations"

All stuff I've read as a freshman.

Twilight Series...though people claim it's a "fan girls' book"

it's good nonetheless. currently there are 3 books, they're like ~400 pages each, IIRC.

I'd definitely recommend reading Ender's Game as well. I read that and the other books in the series in 9th grade I believe.

Since you said you're interested in war, I found The Things They Carried and Going After Cacciato (currently still reading this one..) pretty interesting. If you'd like, you can also give Catch 22 a try.

I did the first book for my English classes and it was so ****ing hard to read. The writer doesn't keep your attention in the first book and I really struggled to get through it. Really, it was boring for the first 100 pages or something like that.
This is my opinion though .-.

I liked The Black Magician trilogy by Trudi Canavan a lot, perhaps look into that?

Woo, lots of suggestions, thanks ^^
I already read The Outsiders back in... I think it was 6th grade

I read 2/3 of Bartimaeus's Trilogy, have yet to find the third in my libraries.

Catcher in the Rye doesn't seem as appealing to me |:

Lol, my friend had Red Badge of Courage, flipped through it, doesn't look so bad.

I've read most of the Redwall series, lost track of them though...

We're already reading Romeo and Juliet for English class...
I think Hamlet might follow after, not sure.

I'll write down everyone else's suggestions and check the library, woo, thanks @_@;;

How? I got to page 100 in that, I couldn't stand the dullness. I watched the movie instead. o-O''
But I made sure to do the musical, to make it more proper.

ANYHOW, read Life of Pi. Good book, 300 pages. Finish quick and tell details. =3

If you're still looking for books, I also recommend "The Graveyard Book". One of the better books I've read over the summer, it's fairly short and enjoyable.

Read Neuromancer and Snow Crash if you like reading books about technology gone wrong, stuff on par with what happens in The Matrix or Blade Runner. I would avoid Great Expectations like the plague, since it's about a pathetic whiny emo boy who doesn't think he's good enough for a girl he really wants to hump.
