My list would really just depend on how old the person I'm recommending to is.

“Yipee, I did it!” the man said with glee,
“I've solved that darned riddle, I've solved it, you see!”
The sphinx simply smiled and shook her strange head,
“I'm afraid you're wrong, and therefore you're dead.”

I LIKE TO READ BABY BOOKS STILL

Here's my recommended book list. It's mainly just classic and literary stuff, so I wouldn't recommend these if you're more of a casual reader.

Don Quixote by Miguel De Cervantes (literally the first novel ever written. It's a genuinely hilarious romp about a man who thinks he's a knight. I recommend this as it surprisingly hasn't become too outdated, it would still be an excellent novel if it were written yesterday.)
Ulysses by James Joyce (The second greatest novel of all time. James Joyce breaks every rule of writing and creates many innovations. It's a masterwork of art. I wouldn't call it “fun to read” most of the time though.)
Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon (If Ulysses breaks all the rules of writing, Gravity's Rainbow breaks every rule of storytelling. This is a novel with over 400 named characters and 40 subplots. It might be the world's first fractal narrative. Unlike Ulysses, it's actually fun to read. The majority of events are ridiculous and hilarious, sometimes even obscene, but they're all beautifully written.)
Mason & Dixon by Thomas Pynchon (Much more straightforward in plot than Gravity's Rainbow but much harder in terms of prose. It's written in a style that mimics 18th century English. It's very hard at first, but you eventually get used to it. The novel has a lot of heart and is very magical.)
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller (My personal favorite out of all of these. A black comedy about war with many interesting and hilarious characters. The novel is perfect at changing in tone later on. It's the hardest I've laughed at any novel.)
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (Contains some of the most beautiful prose in literature and some of the best use of a first-person narrator. I can't talk much about the plot without getting banned from Scratch.)
Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges (A collection of very short stories with interesting and original ideas (such as a library that contains any book that could possibly be written) and great prose.)
The Stranger by Albert Camus (A classic work about absurdism. Camus is excellent at showing his ideas and getting into the head of a character. For a while I thought about it every single night after finishing it. It's very short, it only took me about 2 hours to read.)
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut (One of the more accessible novels on the list, it's quite short and very easy to read. It's about a soldier in WWII who experiences his life out of order, essentially becoming “unstuck in time”. This is the one novel that I'd recommend to pretty much everyone, it's easy enough for most people to read but it shows many philosophical concepts.)
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole (A hilarious novel about an incredibly fat and pathetic man who lives with his mother having to go out and get a job. This is the least pretentious novel on the list, it's just a great and hilarious book.)
Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy (A brutally violent Western epic. Out of all the pieces of media I've ever read or seen, this one is the most violent. It is beautifully written and has a brilliant slow building story. It's different from most McCarthy novels in that the prose is far more biblical and maximalist.)

There are some other books on the list like 1984 and The Catcher In The Rye that aren't on here as everyone's already heard of them.

Maze Runner for sure! Favorite book sires of all time! the original 2 Sherlock Holmes novels (The Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four(I'm a HUGE idiot. I wrote the wrong book title before, which is why I've changed it.)) for the really geeky book worms. I'm currently reading Trouble is a friend of mine, and really liking it, although I have not yet finished it (this one isn't appropriate for most kids under 12. ask an adult first.). I'm seven books in to a sires of unfortunate events, that really good so far. stardust and the graveyard book by Neil Gaiman, my teacher would appreciate me adding that. Gordon Korman books are always awesome, so I wold recommend the McDonald hall sires, and Bugs Potter. If that doesn't satisfy you go poke me over on my profile.

Yay, you made the topic!!! Okay, so here is my list. Prepare for many, many, MANY edits:

-Harry Potter If you have not read this amazing series yet, you are insane. If you hold off because you do not like fantasy- I don't like fantasy either, but this series is my LIFE. The descriptions are so vivid you can imagine you are there and the characters are amazing and surprising. BEST SERIES EVER! Also, the movies aren't that great, but it is still super fun to watch the movies after you read each book. The movies compare nothing to the books though.
-Divergent This sci-fi book is super good!!! I read it when I was in elementary school but read it again in middle school and it made more sense. There are a lot of cliffhangers and suspenseful moments. However, I only did really like the first book. If you are going to read Divergent, though, you should read the whole thing because something really big happens in the third (or was it fourth?) book.
-Counting by 7's This realistic fiction book is entertaining and not hard at all to read. It is kind of sad, but not like cry-out-loud sad, just noticeable.
-Life as we Knew it This sci-fi book is really, really good! You must read it!!!!! It is very fun mixed with sad moments that leave you rooting for the main character.
-The 5th Wave This sci-fi book (well, it is a series too, but I have only read the first book) is really entertaining. It might be a little confusing for you, but most of it is all right. BAD LANGUAGE WARNING!!!!!!! Like every page, so you should read this only if you are in middle school or older.
-Percy Jackson This is a really good fantasy book. I read it when I was kind of young, third or fourth grade, but it is not like it is written young, just younger people can read it too. There are also a lot of side series to it, plus more books are still coming out to the sub-series so this is a good series to get attached to because their are a lot of books in the same world that you can read.
-Out of My Mind I finished this fiction (realistic yet not relatable at all) book super quick, but it is still really good. Sad, but touching, and you can feel the main character's struggles although none of us have experienced anything like she has.
Thanks for reading! I will add a LOT more edits later on!

Oh, so we can make our own lists? Great!

Here goes mine then:
  • The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis: I reccomend the seven books, The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe is the best one, followed by The Last Battle. It's thanks to Narnia that I love reading now.

  • The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak: Just incredible. Really. Specially to us bookworms!

  • Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowling: Do I really need to encourage you to read this? Just READ THEM!!

  • The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain: These are great! I liked the 2nd one the most.

  • The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Éxupery: This is a short but very special book. It contains great quotes to make you think about… well, about life.

  • Don Quixote, by Miguelntes: This is… ok, it's VERY long but read it, it's worth it. If you don't want to read it all, then just read some chapters such as “The adventure with the windmills”

  • Wonder and Auggie & Me, by R.J. Palacio: Amazing books! The stories are easy and hard to understand at the same time. It's a complicated topic, but this books explain it in a great way.

  • Dracula, by Bram Stoker: It's not that scary, I promise! It's a great book and I like how there's actually not a narrator (just a bunch of diaies and that sort of things).

  • The Giver, by Lois Lowry: I really liked this books! They make you think about what is fair and what isn't; what the world is and what i should be (wow I got poetic ).

  • The Neverending Story, by Michael Ende: This is a VERY good book! As you might have guessed, it's quite long (but not ‘neverending’, don't worry!), but completely worth it. They story is so simple and complex at the same time, there are two stories that occur at the sime time and blend at the end.

(I'm sure I forget something…)

Hope you can read at least one of these books!
