Like WHOA! Any good books xD?
« on: May 28, 2006, 02:07:49 AM »

Im heading to the bookstore later on (tomorrow) and was wondering if anybody has any good suggestions on some books. I read pretty much anything, but Im a sucker for Fantasy, Sci-Fi and the Classics.

Good Omens. Fun book.

A game of thrones, by George RR Martin. The only fantasy series you ever need to read, so wonderfully evil and perverted you'd think he was a member of Elliquiy. :)

As is just about anything by Terry Pratchett :)

If you're looking for something weird and off the wall, try Christopher Moore.  His characters are interesting and quirky and his plot twists never fails to surprise me. http://www.chrismoore.com/

I also like Pratchett, but Good Omens is especially good since Gaiman reins him in when it's needed (and Pratchett do seem to need some tight reins  ;) )

Muwahaha! Exactly what I wanted. My usually trips to Borders or the used book store about every two weeks, is me bringing home at least 20 books.

Some people are addicted to Cigs, or Alcohol... I'm addicted to words.


I just read a pretty humerous series of books; Dead Witch Walking; The Good, the Bad, and the Undead; and Every Witch way but Dead. xD

Kim Harrison?  I'll second that they're wonderful :) 

Kelly Armstrong is also a good writer if you like books about werewolves and witches.  She's written six in her series so far, Bitten, Stolen, Dimestore Magic, Industrial Magic, Haunted and Broken, which just came out.

A good sci-fi author is Elizabeth Moon.  Her stories are awesome!

I recommend Peter F. Hamilton- Warning, his books are HUGE. His first series, Night's Dawn, a Sci Fi Opera, came in at over 3000 pages in 6 books, but I personally loved it.
