It would have to be one written by Dan Brown, either the Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, or Digital Fortress.

They're all amazing books with plot twists and to make it even better, Da Vinci Code has a Harry Potter reference biggrin.gif

What about you Amanda?

I like Sweet Valley books. I am getting into Artimus Fowl but I haven't had time to go to the library. I have a couple books that I want to read but haven't found the time or I would just be like okay, Harry Potter time. Stargirl was a good book.

The Hitchhiker Series by Douglass Adams is one of the best sets of books I have ever read. They are extremely funny, and I still love reading them. My aunt got me a book entitled The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide and it has all five books in it. All the people here should at least give it a try.

I really want to read those books. I guess I'll have to steal them from my friend (who also has that life size cut out of Legolas which I still haven't stolen whistling.gif )

Ooh, this is hard, I like so many books. Anything by Tamora Pierce is good, she's got a fabulous set of series that involves magic, the first one's called Song of the Lionness. I also like Pride and Prejudice and The Count of Monte Cristo and I definitely reccommend them for rainy day reading!

Oh, I love books.
I have to agree that the first two Hitchhiker's Guide books were awesome. Someone decided to tell me the end of the series, though, so I haven't gotten the last three yet.

My favorite books of all time would have to be either George R. R. Martin's _A Song of Ice and Fire_ series (starts with _A Game of Thrones_) or Anne Bishop's _Black Jewels Trilogy_ (starts with _Daughter of the Blood_). They are the most magnificant pieces of literature I've ever read, and everyone should read them.
Just so long as your over the age of thirteen. (It wouldn't have bothered me, but I can see some kids being disturbed by the content of some of the BJT... especially males. )

My favourite standalone book: 'Goodnight Mister Tom' by Michelle Magorian

My favourite short series: 'Ice Station', 'Area 7' and 'Scarecrow' by Matthew Reilly

My favourite long series: 'X-Wing' (various novels) by Michael A. Stackpole & Aaron Allston

My favourite epic series: A tie, between 'The Lord of the Rings' by Mr. Tolkien, and Stephen Lawheads 'The Pendragon Cycle'


I also like the hitchikers guide, but I agree with bart on the fantastic but possibly only up to the end of the second. I've never managed to finish 'so long...' and I've only ever read a few lines of 'mostly harmless'. But still, a trilogy in five parts, genius biggrin.gif

Yoda, reading lots

I'm a librarian, so you can probably guess that I love LOTS of books! I have a hard time narrowing down to a single favorite-- I'd probably do better to list my favorite authors: Here's some that I love:

Fantasy: Tolkien, Mercedes Lackey, Katherine Kurtz, Barbara Hambly, Raymond Feist
Science fiction: Robert Heinlein, Christopher Stasheff, Anne McCaffrey
Mystery: Elizabeth Peters, Lilian Jackson Braun
Horror: Stephen King
Classics/older fic: Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen

and a couple of series that I read as a kid and still love: Trixie Belden mysteries, The Tuckers, Robin Kane
