    Ooooh, I loved Watership Downs. Awesome read.

    OMG. Were do I start. I love horse stories, and I have run the gambit with sci-fi, fantasy, muder mysteries, horror, 'historical drama', you name it.

    Right now I am into Phillip Pullman's work, I read the first two books, The Golden Compass (made a movie, which was good but the book is WAY better) and the Subtle Knife, and I am just RABID for the last one (must have closure!!) But I also wanna dive into Anne Rice's latest series about Christ and probably finish the kids books I am reading on the Saddle Club.

    If I was to list my faves I'd be typing all day....

    Agreed. Movies are never as good as the book.

    Sometimes films work well as a different interpretation of the book. But the Golden Compass film, despite having many excellent actors and being very rich visually, pretty much sucked. Not that I'm a huge fan of Northern Lights, anyway - it's better than the rest of His Dark Materials, but I don't like books with blatant agendas. I dislike HDM and Narnia for the same reason xD

    To me I can't dislike movies because of the simple reason. I don't watch them .

    lol, same here! That cartoon movie was scary as!

    Good books? Hmmm... i'm a big fantasy reader so:

    Dragon Champion by E. E. Knight
    Battleaxe, Enchanter, Starman (The Axis Trilogy) by Sara Douglass
    Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
    The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks

    A good paranormal series is the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
    1. Moon Called
    2. Blood Bound
    3. Iron Kissed

    And I love all the Jodi Picoult books that I've read so far.

    All the above are "must reads" in my opinion, lol.
