Beautiful Creatures...I mean it's got a lot of problems like an unrealistic male protagonist, a stale female lead, and some stereotype problems...but the other characters such as Macon, Amma, and Marion really make it worth it for me. Besides it's fun.
Probably any YA that I read currently, except I am not ashamed to be a Gayle Foreman fan.

It's kind of surprising what is out there to be honest Some of it isn't too bad, and even quite funny and well written. I quite liked "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green. (I also watch the vlogbrothers on youtube, which is pretty hilarious too).
I read lots of fanfiction for tons of different works. But it's GOOD fanfiction, none of that shipping crap or Mary Sue stuff. If there's a pairing (or an implied one), it's usually canon. If it has an OC pertinent to the story, that's fine with me as long as they're well-developed and plausible.
Some types of fanfiction I get embarrassed about. Like Sly Cooper and Pokemon and Digimon. My brother looks at me weird when I start talking about them, but he mostly sticks to Naruto. At least I try to branch out, right?
I don't feel all that guilty about liking Warriors or Harry Potter, even if I'm 20 years old. But the books I usually try to hide by stacking things in front of it: Guardians of Ga'Hoole. I just love it.
Probably the whole Anita Blake series. Much more sex and sensuality than fluff like Fifty Shades of Grey, and a not useless main character! Plus, bestiality! Oh dear God. No. I must end this reply now.
My biggest one would probably be fanfiction. Whenever I get into a series for some reason, I simply must read the fanfiction about it. Just something about them just...I don't know.
The other one would be that I'm a fan of the Scrooge McDuck comics. It turns out that they are actually really good if you so happen to get the right writer for him (and still usually pretty good even if you don't). My suggestion would be Carl Barks and Don Rosa, who wrote the life bio of him (yes such a thing actually exists) where it has him doing things like blowing up steamboats and beating the crap out of people every chapter. Turns out he was quite the badass.
Embarrassing to admit, but I'm the same. I get obsessed with a new series about once every 6 months (right now its the Hobbit and Teen Wolf, before it was Harry Potter and Ocean's 11). Worst of all is that sometimes I don't even like the series(Teen Wolf for example) so much as just the fanfiction about the series.
Haha, I tend to last longer on a series and when I'm into a series, I'm into it for quite a while but yeah, I definitely know about reading fanfiction about a series that you are not so much into and only have a limited interest. I've done that too XD
Ah, well for Harry Potter, you would certainly have your selection. not to even mention the crossovers for that series. For every series that I bothered to check there is at least one for Harry Potter. Even pong.
Pretty much any type: angst, romance, gore etc. Even fanfiction that is so bad it's good. I pretty much set my settings to all, not just the K to teen thing.
Except poems, song fics, mpreg (people really need to figure out that guys would be more shocked that "lol oh crap" plus it's not my thing) and especially modified Christmas carol fics. This shit exists and it shouldn't.
I'm a little embarrassed that I still enjoy reading a few young adult/teen fantasy series. Ones that I still read every now and then are the Redwall series, and the Warrior Cats. As a sucker for talking animal books, I just can't pass them up.
Well perfume is a book, taking place in the 1800's of France, i choose for my research paper my senior year in high school. It is really unrealistic and kind of crazy. When I read the summary about a man who is obsessed with smells, dreams to make the perfect perfume, and longing to be accepted by society, I knew i wanted to read it. I realized he could have been born with a very acute sense of smell, which could be a genetic condition called Hyperosmia. (however the strength of his smell is too power to be caused by Hyperomia.) To make the most attractive perfume in the world, he decides to cultivate the smell of what he deemed most attractive olfactory-wise, virgins. It sounds weird but this character, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, explains the smell of the virgin is most sweet and pure. He decides the best way to harvest these smells is to kill them and collect their smell.
Because i was supposed to analyze this book i actually discovered many things that were sort of representing society and loneliness. Disclaimer: You either hate the ending/ feel awkward about it/ or love it lol
