1. I ADORE Philip Pullman’s HIS DARK MATERIALS trilogy. They are my all-time favorite books … ever. I’ve reread them many times over the years. They are incredible — moving, well-written, breathtaking storytelling, epic scope. I love them in their entirety.

  2. Thank you so much! I am a bibliophile but I’m a really fast reader so it’s hard for me to find books I haven’t read that are really good! I love Fallen by the way….its one of my favorite books! :)

  3. Oh, and by the way, I agree about Mockingjay. My Literature teacher and I talk about it all the time: I didn’t really like how she introduced some concepts. It was kind of disappointing.

  4. Thanks for the top 10 list. Always looking for an interesting read. I am picking up The Master and Margarita today. BTW, I agree about Mockingjay. Disappointing. I felt the characters where no longer the ones we recognized and loved in the first two books. It was missing those moments, here and there, when the characters connected and you could see love in the midst of it all. Boo.

  5. hi lauren!
    I wish you would come and visit SC we love you here!!!! Anyways i love the books you chose and agree with most of the comments……so is rapture the fourth book in the fallen series????

  6. Thank you for making a list of great books.
    I am a very fast reader and VERY picky about what I read, So it’s quite hard for me to find books that I like and that I haven’t read already.
    & with you being my favorite author, I’m so happy that I can see what books you recommend because You are an amazing author and I think that, really, any book that deserves to be on your list is worth my time. (:
    And again, thanks for posting! I hope you post more books you love in the future.

    p.s. I love the FALLEN series. They’re my very favorite!

  7. Your simply amazing for posting this list. I definitely needed a list of books to keep me company until Passion arrives. Thanks!!!!!

  8. I feel the same way about the hunger games! When I finished the series, I was so upset! I loved the first one, the plot was original, and it was believable. The second one was okay, and the third one left a bitter taste in my mouth. So many questions were left unanswered. It wasn’t realistic. She never really speaks to her mother again. and what happened to Gale? What happened to Panem? It seemed so rush and feel completely flat. The ending seemed like an after thought and it left me feeling empty.

  9. I totally loved your books and their covers, but from what I see on the passion cover luce doesn’t look very pretty. :(

  10. Thanks for the book list i read ALOT at work and ill have to look into some of these… by the way your fallen series is AMAZING! i have read and reread it and am totally looking forward to PASSION.

  11. I totally agree with KearaWhite, the cover for Passion is kind of ugly in comparison to the other two. And the girl looks animated. What happened?

  12. I can NOT wait till i can get PASSION and read it! 😀 i bet its going to be amazingly fantastic! just to let you know i <3 the fallen books! :) im all smiles now that passion has come out! and thank you so much for posting the book list i read all my books insainly fast so every day im looking for some thing eles to read:) i have a very close realtion ship with the library by me:) that might sound weird but i do. PS LAUREN KATE you most be one of the bestiest wrighters EVER!:)<3

    BTW i

  15. love the fallen books!
    can’t wait for rapture
    wanna find out how it ends hehehe
    just finished passion three days ago.
    i couldn’t even wait til i got to whatever part of the book. i sorta skipped some–then read the ending. i know i’m ruining the ending by doing that but it was just really good that i couldn’t wait to find out.
    then of course i started from the beginning.
    my weird way of reading:)
    is this gonna be a movie?

  16. I absolutely love the His Dark Materials trilogy, so much so that I’m studying The Amber Spyglass in my A Level English course but I hate with a passion the fact that they changed the name of Northen Lights to The Golden Compass, mainly because its not even an accurate description! Anyway rant over, I love your books I’ve just finished reading passion, can’t wait for the next book!

  17. Love your books, there just as good as the mortal insturments.
    I guess im not like everybody else, i purchased the golden compass just after the movie came oit thinking it would be a good read only i find the book vvery boring. Its been about 4 years now and every time i pick it up i fall asleep after reading 2 pages.

  18. Hi!

    I always appreciate when authors themselves take the time to promote other books that they are reading. You hear about great books coming down the pipeline much sooner than most of us!

    While I’m a late-comer to the Fallen series (I just finished Passion yesterday- it was great!), I can honestly say that it’s swept me off my feet with it’s intensity and originality. It’s funny that you list Phillip Pullman’s series as your top read for the year on here. I’ve loved Mr. Pullman’s books since I was much, much younger, but I find that the older you get, the darker and more beautiful they become; they’re so much richer than at first glance. I think that same quality is what draws me to your Fallen novels. They are unexpected, and quirky, and stand the stereotypical perception of angels on its head (much like His Dark Materials does). I can’t wait for Rapture, and what I’m anticipating will be a thoroughly unexpected ending, but one that can’t possibly be anything different than what it will be. :)

    Thank you so much for your writing!

  19. I haven’t read many of them besides mockingjay, and I loved it. Who said it was flat??? My FAVOURITE books, because Collins writes so refreshingly and isn’t always focusing on the romance :( Rapture is close though xxx can’t wait, keep writing! :)

  20. I got rapture RIGHT when it came out! And finished it the next day. I just love love love your books lauren!!! SOOOO sad that the series ended already :( what else am I gonna read!!!!! When I read the prologue in FALLEN, I was instantly in LOVE with your books… just KEEP WRITING!!!!!!!!

  21. I think your choice of books is really interesting! I’ll definitely read some of them.
    I also really loved His Dark Materials. It was such a unique and touching story. I wouldn’t stop crying at the end.
    If you liked that series you should give “Dark Reflections” by Kai Meyer a go. It’s also a trilogy that takes place in Venice. I read it in it’s original language (German) but I think the translation should be amazing too. It is really is a fascinating story.
