Top 5 Book Series
Im on the last legs of probably my new #2 book series...and I have nothing to read after this
O.o. Super tragic because Castle+no book=devestation....im addicted to reading lol
So I figured I would make a lst of my top 5 and then if anybody wanted to join in (and maybe give some ideas what to read next) it could be.....fun I guess haha so.
#1- The Inheritence Cycle by Christopher Paolini.
I have yet to find another series so well developed. The imagination it takes to create such a detailed new world and so well written throughout is just unmatchable imo. Dragons, elves, dwarves, humans all looked at from a new perspective.
Unmatched. I was literally ballingmmy eyes out at the end of the last book, as much for the fact that the series would be over as for the actual ending. I was almost afraid to read the last one aafter Ireligiously followed it since it came out an reread each one as the next one was released. Bought the first book in 2002 the week it came out....at a Walmart in TX on a father daughter trip to see my grandparents, honestly was a little Iiffy about it. Hadnt really liked fantasy before that but I had finished all the horsey books I had and my dad pointed it out....read the whole book through with barely a pause and reread it as soon as I finished it....
I cannot explain how , much I LOVE this series....and to think the first book was written when he was only 15
#2- The Riyria Revelations, The Riyria Chronicles by Michael Sullivan.
Awesomely awesome read. Its I would say a midieval fantasy series set with lots of twists and turns and many surprising developments throughout the series, starts out as what your typical fantasy novel should and then expands into more complex situations and cconspiracies, definitely keeps you on your toes..plus theyre BIG books which makes me uber happy....sadly I am almost done with the last one
I'm super-uber sad right now.
#3- The Chronicles of the Necromancer/The Fallen Kings Cycle by Gail Z. Martim
It's more mideval fantasy...honestly reminded me of WoW at first but got better asthe series progressed
#4- The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks
Non stop action and a plot that kept me guessing. He did wonderfully in character development
#5- The Rangers Apprentice by John Flamagan
Its actually writtwn for the YA audience but everybody I have loaned my books to no matter the age loves them. Its a midieval england base with your knights and your spooks. Basically what would happen if Aragorn from LotR took an apprentice
Its actually a YA series but its emtertaining and has the same feel to it as the other books I love
So now that I've blabbered on and on, aybody else care to share their favs?
