The bold Guard is a good series, it's only three books long so it god quick. I would definitely recommend it. Lots of action right off the bat.
Last dragon Chronicles are good as well! It's a longer series to read and took me most of one year. Particularly because I didn't have a lot of time for reading. It's seven books long but I loved every page of them.
The lightning queen, possibly my favorite single book, is a good one. it's beautifully written in the words of a grandpa telling his grandson about his life being friends with a gypsy girl he can only see for a week once a year while dealing with his depressed mother and his sisters death.
The key to extraordinary is a single book about this girl who's ancestors all do extraordinary things and she has to figure out what she will do. Another book by the same author is a snicker of magic. It good to but I think I like key to extraordinary s bit better. They are both worth a google.
wish. The description sounds little kidish but it's really not. This girl was living in a house with bad family situations. She's taken into foster care, meets a friend, gains a dog, and just has fun. It's a very good book and I love all the imagery words they are used, maybe it's just the picture it puts in my head but whatever I love it.
