I have no favorite-favorite on most things. I just go more by mood.

Genre wise, like I mentioned in the other topic, I'm into Sci-fi, fantasy and horror most, then mystery and comedy, then pretty much everything else. I've been known to read YA and Romances and Erotica and other such weird and not so weird stuff. lol
Hence, I have no one favorite book (or author), though I like the Judge Dee series, LOTR, and a few others... you can feel free to add me/browse my books on goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/1533779-lkm (but I take no responsibility on you guys finding out more than you cared to know about me through my reading list ;P)

I prefer physical books, but lately I've just been reading a lot of ebooks for availability reasons. Smile

Genre? Fantasy mostly :3
Book? Artemis Fowl, Eragon
Author? To be honest i dont care about authors much.
Classic, In sweden librarys are free to use as long as you return the book within 4 weeks of loaning them(can be extended by re-loaning), i also live around 300 meters away from the library so i spend some of my time there.

E - book or classic ?
-Classic, baby.


Right now, I'm reading this book series called the Morgaine Cycle by CJ Cherry. It consists of three short, 200+ page books and one ~500 page book.
It's about a guy who gets exiled from his village/clan and meets some strange woman who comes out of a gate (a portal that connects two worlds at different times in history, but they only go in one direction). She is on a quest to destroy the main gate on each world and passing through it to the next world. She does this because the gates possess great and dangerous powers. One of which is the power for a man to move his conscience into the body of another, abandoning his old body and claiming the new one.
Each book takes place on a different world, and follows the perspective of the exiled man who becomes her servant.
I enjoy the series so far, and I'm on the last book.

Pre or post finding God? <.<

The book you're reading rings a bell, must have read the synopsis somewhere, because I'm sure I haven't read the book itself. Sounds interesting though! Right now I'm reading Micro by Michael Crichton. It started good, but... not liking it so much as it goes deeper into the story. X/

Lol. Before, when she began the vampire chronicles. I started reading Interview with a Vampire one night at like 2am after my friends fell asleep, and didn't stop reading it until they woke up at like 11.
I've read 6-7 of the vampire novels, and I think she did most of those before she started being religious again. I'm not going to touch any of the Christ books, but I'm going to keep going through the Vampire Chronicles and the Mayfair Witch books.

Ah, okay. lol I loved The Vampire Chronicles~I think I read about 5-6 of the vampire series myself, probably didn't keep track of all. I had been having troubles finding the others for a while, and now that I have them I've just not gotten around to it. So much to read... so little time... I was a little sad when she came out with the whole thing about no-fanfics and then weirded out with the religious-y kind of books, so I sort of drifted away from her stuff.

It took me a while to get them too. I couldn't find a couple of them in any bookstores or the library. It took me like a month to find one so that I could continue the series. I have all of the vampire books leading up to the Mayfair Witches (although I've read them all by now), as well as the first three witch books (I got them in a bundle for cheap Cool). So, I'm set for a while.

Yeah, the religious stuff surprised me when I found out about them. Anne Rice is a weird person. She flip-flops on everything after a couple of years.
That doesn't stop her from being a good writer though. :p

Favorite Genre? Fantasy, Scifi

Favorite Books? The Wheel of Time, Inkheart, The Beyonder, The Golden Compass (Dark Materials)

Favorite Authors? Brandon Mull, Robert Jordan, Tamora Pierce

I mostly read in paperback but E-books are so convenient that I have a couple of series on the Kindle. The Wheel of Time is fourteen books long and I started reading it two months ago and I am on the fourth book. I adore this series due to its constant turmoil and chaos.

The Beyonder is one of the most imaginative series I have ever read, it is three books long and I hope to see another series in that world one day. It has sentient zombies controlled by worms, terrifying swordsmen called Torivors that are hyped up so well and they are my favorite monster now, and people who call can take off their limbs and put them back on like a Mr. Potato Head.

Inkheart is one of those series that hold a special place in my heart, the characters are just sublime and their growth is some of the best I have read.

Dark Materials is legendary and I am sure it will be considered a classic one day.
ParanoiDoom or several thousand uses of a binocular.
