Have to say I would agree with that! Seems like he would always have a lot to tell. I haven't met that many people who have read those books. Glad to know someone else knows about them.

I just started this series but the Riyria Revelations series by Micheal J. Sullivan is pretty awesome so far. Its abot a thief and a mercenary that basically work together in all kinds of mischief. And theres elves and dwarves and whatnot as well. Pretty awesome


The Red Knight by Miles Cameron
Its the first on (sequel isn't out yet unfortunately) bt its supposed to be a 5 book series.
Its a mix of fantasy and historic (midevial) fiction without all the blubbery YA nonsense. Its a realistic story of a bloody war. He writes similarly to GRR Martin but imo much more fun to read

I second the House of Night series! All four of the girls in my house(46,18,17, and 15) read the series.
I also LOVE Janet Evanovich. The Stephanie Plum series(Starting with One for the Doe) is kind of a mix between romance/comedy/action and they just released the movie (which is really great too). The series has 19 books in it so far but she'll keep releasing more. Another series by that author is also really good. I can't remember the exact name of the series but it's something like The Lizzy and Diesel Adventures and it has some magic and romance and action to it too.

I will read almost anything. My favorite few series aren't well-known, but I would recommend them to anyone.

JD Nixon has 2 series - Heller series and Little Town series
Both are incomplete and she's coming out with new books (hopefully soon) for both. I can't wait!

Shayne Parkinson - Promises to Keep series (there a few extra books outside of the immediate series that are related)

P.B. Ryan - Nell Sweeney series (this is actual my favorite series of all time, and I was so sad when I finished it because I wanted it to keep going!)

Of course, I absolutely love the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I also love every other book that Janet Evanovich has written as well.

I also love the 50 Shades trilogy. After the first book, you really get into character development and the series really develops depth. Then, there's Sylvia Day. I love all of her books, too.

The Last Lecture-is an amazing book about a guy who taught at a university and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He died just a few weeks before the book was released. Amazing and inspiring insight on his life lessons. A must read for sure.

I second Kristen Britian's. "Green Rider" is the first book in her series, fantasy novels. The 5th comes out sometime in Spring.

If you enjoy the young adult books. Divergent by Veronica Moth is very good.
