Claudius murders Hamlet's father, his own brother, to take the throne of Denmark and to marry Hamlet's widowed mother.

Hamlet is torn between his great sadness and his desire for the revenge of his father's murder.
Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
1. I originally didn't like Harry Potter. I had to read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in 7th or 8th grade for school. Science fiction/fantasy was something I really wasn't into, so I wasn't a fan of it until near the end of the book. To this day, I think that the first two books in this series are not as good as the others.
2. I only have two books in The Hunger Games trilogy pictured because I have not read Mockingjay yet.
3. I did an Author Spotlight on Suzanne Collins, so you can check that out here.
