Just curious to see what everyone's favorite genre of books are and favorite books in general.

I adore Science Fiction....fiction...anything make believe.
Some of my favorites are the Narnia series, Inkheart (both Inkheart and Inkspell), Harry Potter series, Eragon (and Eldest), The Lost Years of Merlin, and the list can go on and on.

I have not read that book or anything from the authors. I will definately check them out at the library.

The one fiction (don't think it would fall into Sci-Fic) that I did not like at all was the Lord of the Rings trilogy...don't know why...I didn't like the movies either

i have to admit im not a sci-fi fan but i love anne mccaffreys books.

im more of a stephen king kinda gal. i enjoy him and john saul but john saul i would have to say is a little 'darker' than stephen king but always a good read.

i can read just about anything though as long as it grabs my attention in the first paragraph :)
