    I have a penchant for young adult/teen fiction books. My favourite are the Geek Girl series by Holly Smale.

    Well if you are after a good read may I suggest the first book I ever read, A general history of the pyrates. It's a history book about the most notorious pirates in history written by a man (Daniel Defoe) who was alive at the time. He wrote it along with the help of a real pirate captain of the time, a man called Captain Johnson I think. It's not entirely accurate to history, but it's still a very interesting read. If you do plan on getting it go for the original written form with modern annotations, that's the best you can get. You can find it on Amazon for about £7, really reasonable price for such a great read!

    If you want something a little bit classic and a little bit satire, I recommend Jack Dawkins by Charlton Daines. It's about the Artful Dodger from Oliver Twist, all grown up and getting into hilarious trouble.
