I recommended Cassandra Clare's City of Bones to someone.
In my defense, it was to an old friend who was obsessed with dragons and is now a Twilighter and - get this - hasn't read a book for fun since reading Twilight because no other book has the great character development of Twilight.
I'm pretty sure I actually started twitching in the middle of Borders. But hey, I got to babble about numerous book series that were actually good! She just looked confused by why people would want to read 'em, but whatevs. I tried... and then directed her to City of Bones.
