Lol just went and bought those books to re read now lol. Book Depository have them for 7.50 each with free delivery
I love reading but don't get as much time as I used to.
Jan: George R.R Martin: Game of Thrones series, can't wait for the next one now.
Feb: David Mitchell: Cloud Atlas, Cormac McCarthy: No Country for Old Men.
Up next: Thomas Hardy: Far from the Madding Crowd, Carolyn Leach-Paholski: The Grasshopper Shoe.
Trying really hard to vary the genres that I read this year so very open to suggestions.
It seems I have a similar taste in books to many of you.
i like David endings too though I think I prefer the belgariad to the redemption of althalus. I think partially because I'd already read the belgariad, the mallorean and the two sparhawk trilogies first and it was a bit too similar. I wasn't a fan of the more recent series he has written. I own them all.
i have read Outlander and liked it. I haven't read the rest of the series, I wasn't aware there was one so I might give that a go.
i agree that the Arrows of the Queen trilogy and last herald Mage trilogy are mercedes lackey's best novels. I also like her black swan (stand alone), the black gryphon and the first couple in the elemental masters series (serpent in shadow and Phoenix and ashes). I own all these too (I love to re-read favourite books and am a bit of a bibliophile).
i also like l. M. Montgomery who wrote anne of green gables. The blue castle and rilla of ingleside are two of my faves by her. A lot of her works are available free online from a website called the Gutenberg project (out of copyright electronic books).
I read the hunger games series and really enjoyed it.
my other favourite authors beside ilona andrews are:
Patricia Briggs. I particularly like her Hurog series - dragon bones and dragon blood (those who like the humour in the belgariad will probably like these) and the mercy Thompson series (it starts with moon called)
juliet marillier, especially the sevenwaters series.
garth nix (his abhorsen series) - if you like the hunger games I think this would really appeal.
I'm excited to see which other books are recommended here. I'm always on the lookout for new books to hoard!
lol... I have a rule: If I read a book & like it, I must own it! I have soooo many books. I also have every Eddings book. Other favourites are: Raymond E Fiest, Tolkien, George RR Martin, Robert Jordan (& Brandon Sanderson... which reminds me that I need to get the last WOT book...), Terry Goodkind, Katharine Kerr, Terry Patchett, Robert Silverberg... & many more!
I have read the 2 sparhawk series' multiple times and loved them. I think I started the Bulgariad but wasn't in the mood and put it down and just haven't attempted it again. Might give it a go when I go up to my parents for Easter lol I also live the I.M Montgomery books I grew up with them and read them over and over... And over!!!
Sherrilyn Kenyon is a great author and JR Ward.. Both write similar styles and I love JD Robb( another pen name for Nora Roberts) her In Death murder crime series is fantastic
