Recommendations for Samiira

"I wanted to say I sometimes get bored of books and its very hard in finding some. So, do you have any recommendations for me.

P.S. I personally like mystery, info: in living a better life,adventure,chemistry, islamic heroes, and mainly books with great meaning behind it."
Hey Samiira, ASAK. Well, here's a post made just for you. AND, it's the first post on this awesome, wonderful blog that has been made specially for one a commenter on this blog. Dab away your emotionally-induced tears, because I have some recommendations for you:
Well, I read the Nancy Drew series. I like them, and they're mystery. I highly recommend you read historical fiction; it's a great genre where you can find adventure, meaningful morals, and that genre just has some really great books. The Alex Rider series is good too; Marvel is going to be posting a post about it today, probably. It involves spying and agent-work, and you might like it. Islamic heroes...books on the Sahabah(R)...I don't have any specific titles in my mind right now, but I'll see. OH, OH, you know on Muslim Teens, the blog that now can be located at:, there was a post on a book called If I Should Speak by Umm Zakiyyah? You must read it. It has GREAT Da'wa in it, and is a pretty good book as well. I didn't find it at the library, so I bought it, but it is totally worth it. I bought it on
Specific titles you may want to check out:
The River Between Us by Richard Peck
Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz(first book in Alex Rider series)
The Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene(first book in Nancy Drew series)
The Name of this Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
Double Identity by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Running Out of Time by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor
AND Marvel, who's talking to me right now, is telling me to add:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng

Hope you read and like some of these books.

  1. I read ALL of those books and they were: FABULOUS!!!! Oh and Samn you most probably won't find a fiction book on chemistry but many good chemists write about their expirements but i would suggest you should read a biography on Sidney ALtman,he and his group discovered that the RNA molecule alone was sufficient for the observed catalytic activity, meaning that the RNA itself had catalytic properties, which was the discovery that earned him the Nobel prize. He was an AWESOME chemist.
    Good luck.
