Anyone have any favorite authors or books they like to recommend? I’m always interested to find some more stuff to read :D Any genre, fantasy, sci-fi, non-fiction, mystery you name it.

  1. Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series
    Ray Bradbury
    Marion Zimmer Bradley
    Brian Jacques


  2. The most recent book I read - Train Man by Nakano Hitori was a fairly light but enjoyable piece of cyber culture. Just started on The book thief by Markus Zusak. Looks promising. Otherwise I find myself going back to re-read beloved books from my childhood - david eddings, diana wynne jones, alice in wonderland, L.M.Montgomery. Somehow I still like children’s books the best! ^_^ Have a good day!


  3. I agree with the Brian Jacques! ;)
    As for mystery, Orchid Beach by Stuart Woods is a good one. :P
    Well I am interested in the same, but there was a book that I started to read and it was great. It is called Chain Mail, by Hiroshi Ishizaki. It has a good twist too it too.


  4. Terry Pratchett, hands down!

    All good reads ^^ I’ve actually own two Red Wall books, but I haven’t read them yet XD My husband read a bunch when he was younger and says they’re great. And I got lucky and found a Marion Zimmer Bradley book the other day at a thrift shop, I think one of the Darkover novels.

    I’ve read a couple of the Dragonriders books, I can’t remember which ones atm though XD I’ll have to think about it a little bit. Oo, I’ll do a little research and can proly write a whole post on her stuff!

    I also have a Bradbury Omnibus called Bradbury Stories: 100 of his most Celebrated Tales that I haven’t quite finished yet.

    I’ve heard of Trainman, I saw the movie poster somewhere and was recommended it by a co-worker. I’ll definitely have to check it out!

    David Eddings sounds familiar but I don’t think I’ve read anything of his, I’ll have to check him out!

    Diana Wynne Jones rocks! I’ve got a couple of her books.

    I’ve never read any of Montgomery’s stuff, but I did read the Little House on the Prairie series when I was younger. I thought they were pretty good. And hey, don’t let anyone knock children’s books cause there are tons of awesomely written ones. Just because someone writes something so that anyone can read and understand it doesn’t mean it’s not for adults too. Here’s two easy ways to say it:

    http://www.xkcd.com/150/

    http://www.xkcd.com/219/

    Oo, have you read the Spiderwick Chronicles, or the Edge Chronicles? They’re great reads and Tony DiTerlizzi did the artwork for the Spiderwick books, he’s a freak’n awesome artist!

    @ pandi_painter

    I’ll have to check Stuart Woods out and Chain Mail looks cool, I’ma check it out too!

    @ amethyst_lover

    Yay Terry Pratchett! The first book of his I read was Good Omens which he did in collaboration with Neil Gaiman. That book is wonderful, which got me reading a bunch of Neil Gaiman’s stuff, but I’ve been a little wary of getting started in the Disk World stuff cause it’s such a big series XD But I swear I’m gonna pick it up one day XD

    Thank you all for the suggestions!


  6. Hi again, thanks for the note you left me and the links are just hilarious. I’ve heard of Spiderwick but did not have the leisure to check it out yet. Will be sure to do so; will have to do some research for the Edge though. Montgomery’s Anne books are awesome because they make me laugh out loud, same with Eddings :P About trainman, my boyfriend seemed to understand it more than me… apparently some of the otaku/geek jokes escaped me… oh well :P still a funny read.


  7. I also have the Ray Bradbury Omnibus. :) I love Something Wicked This Way Comes, October Country and From The Dust Returned. The first Bradbury story I read was Homecoming and from that point on he became one of my favorite story-tellers. I was so happy when Homecoming was extended into a novel (From The Dust Returned) after so many years. XD I’ve also watched some of the stories adapted for television when I was a kid.


  8. :D Yay a Bradbury fan! The omnibus rocks! It’s so sad the short story has lost it’s place in the literary world. ; ;


  9. True, true. It’s more of a graphic novel era now.


  10. A Step From Heaven by An Na is an amazing book ;D
    It’s about a girl who’s family moves from Korea to the US.
    It’s one of my top favorites :3


  11. Cornelia Funke= her Inkheart books are great.
    Yoko Kawashima = So Far from The Bamboo Grove, is very emotional.
    Root’s is also a good book. Oh, and Crank as well!


  12. Thank you for all the suggestions! I’ma have to check them out!

    I love Graphic Novels! I’ve been collecting the Buffy the Vampire Slayer GN Omnibus’ and Season 8 which is only available through GN format. I’ve got some others but I’m not at home atm to go list them XD.
