Oh, books... I love nothing better than spending hours in a bookshop, just browsing...
Favourite books... At the moment, i'm reading pretty near every book Sara Douglass has written. Australian fantasy author. The Axis Trilogy was amazing, and the Wayfarer redemption was good, although quite similar to the Axis Trilogy. Threshold is amazing, my favourite so far, and Beyond the Hanging Wall had to be read, to lead into her latest series, combining all the previous books I mentioned, Darkglass Mountain. I've read the first one so far, and love it, and on the waiting list at the library for the second, and the third isn't out yet. Love her books. The world she creates is just amazing, as are the people inhabiting it. God I would love tobe/meet an Icarii...
I must say i'm another lover of Anne Rice :]
Also love Bryce Courtenay, Power of One was Great, Tandia even better. Four Fires is tragic, Sylvia was tragic as well... Whitethorn I found to be very similar to Power of One, but again very moving.
For all you mystery buffs, Mallawindy by Joy Dettman is amazing, and you never guess until the last page. It is written quite fragmentally, interspersed with poems, but it is amazing and very touching, as well as incredibly tragic.
Mayfield and Vale Valhalla, Can't remember the author, are great epics, and my favourite epic has to be The Emancipist, goes from Ireland in the famine into Australia during it's first years. Amazing book.
Love the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, probably the only chick lit/mystery books I like.
Of course I loved Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, Narnia etc.
Tomorrow When the War Began is an amazing series by John Marsden, and a claim to fame, the main character is based on my godsister :] How cool is that!
Well that is all I can think of for now...
