    I picked up Rob Thurman's new book Slashback early in the month when it released. It really is great, a prime example of Urban Fantasy. I would put her up there with Jim Butcher and Richard Kadrey as the Gods of Urban Fantasy. If you're looking for more traditional Fantasy though, I can't recommend Brent Weeks enough. His books are all deliciously twisted, especially The Way of the Shadows and Beyond the Shadows. If you're new to his work, start out with the Black Prism, its a bit more polished than his earlier works.

    I'm a big supporter of my local author Sir Terry Pratchett. However if I have to be honest the greatest books I have read are also my personal favourites. That series is called The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and finished posthumously by Brandon Sanderson. For the story think war and peace on acid. 14 books of about 1000 pages each plus a short prologue book. The books fit in many genres but are primarily fantasy adventure stories. There are both strong male and female lead characters. However, it is better story that anything Tolkien or Martin have written. Yes I know Tolkien is the grandfather of fantasy and Martin when he meets deadlines can write the most awesome of plot twist but trust me on this Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series IS better.

    Other awesome books I've read and can really recommend are:

    The Sword of Truth Series (12 Volumes + The Omen Machine and other spin offs...) by Terry Goodkind. I must confess that I really fell in love with this series right from the start. It is like entering another world. I couldn't put those books down.

    Shadow Falls Series by C.C. Hunter. (not yet completed) The characters are often hormone-driven and sometimes quite shallow, but it is a light funny read for a lazy sunday afternoon. The twists are a little bit foreseeable, though.

    The Sherlock Holmes Stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. No comments needed.

    Howl's Moving Castle and its Sequels by Diana Wynne Jones. They are so funny and cute I've read them quite some times already~

    To kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I liked it.

    The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I've watched the movie, too. The book was better.

    And nothing can go past Alice's Adventures Under Ground and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Caroll. Really.

    If you like something dark then I would suggest "The private memoirs and confessions of a Justified Sinner."

    It's a great old Scottish novel~

    Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

    High-five, LOTR fans!

    The only Rick Riordans I've read are the Percy Jackson series, and that was ages ago. I don't really like the Kane Chronicles series, but a lot of people tell me it's good.
    I love Asimovs too <3 Sci-fi forever. (Especially the Foundation series).

    Recently I've been reading Paul Gallicos. Very touching.
