If you like fantasy I would recommend the Inheritance Cycle series, if you haven't read those yet of course. They're some of my favorite books. I would also recommend a book called The Sight by David Clement-Davies.

In a serious recommendation, I totally agree with these! I'm a huge fan of fantasy books so big you could knock someone out with them. I'm actually craving to reread The Sight, it's at home on my nightstand and I've decided to read it after I finish my current book.

I plan on rereading it soon also. I loved the book so much that my I named my dog after Larka. :)

I just picked up a used copy of James Clavell's "Shogun"

Very long, but also very excellent. I can see how fans of GRRM might enjoy it.

The Freakonomics books (there's a trilogy of them at his point) are always a good read.

I'm reading Joy Luck Club for the first time. It's pretty good. I need to talk with someone about one of the stories, though. The tone confused the hell out of me.

If you enjoy 'Ready Player One' then try Ernest Cline's next book 'Armada' also very good. Comic wise if you where looking for a comic try Batman 'Death of the Family' one of the best i have read for a while.

HmmMMMM, my favorite book ever is "The Good Thief" followed by "The Unwanteds". But those are books I read as a kid, mostly. I haven't read many books through the years, despite how much I love them. But if you're into graphic novels, I'd suggest reading We3.

It always makes me cry whenever I read it. There's something about the characters' innocence that really gets to you. I'd recommend getting the physical copy, since it's just a couple dollars extra, but since you're asking for Kindle versions, I found it available @ amazon [x].

If you don't mind something a little silly, I'd suggest 'Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch'. It's an old favourite of mine. :)


I hope you're having a nice day. :)

YES!!!!!!! It is one of my alltime favorite books. I can't recommend it enough to people. It's so refreshingly funny. . . .the characters are perfection. . . I love the footnotes throughout the book. have you read any others by gaiman or pratchett?

For anyone who has played The Witcher series, or just likes fantasy, ‘The Witcher’ book series is pretty incredible. Hands down, one of my favourite fantasy series. They’re dark, grim, filled with amazing characters and lot’s of mythology and folklore. I read them all in a month I was so addicted.
