Book tastes

Mostly fantasy, science fiction, and some contemporary. I like interesting story worlds and deep characters. Some of my all time favourites include: Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz Fawkes by Nadine Brandes And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw The Redwall series by Brian Jacques All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater Ready Player One by Ernest Cline The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling Stardust by Neil Gaiman Most things in that vein are great.

Don't get this!

No erotica or graphic sexual content of any kind. Sensuality or fade to black is fine.

Other notes

I like the kind of books that make people really excited to share them. If it's something you would rave about and insist your best friend read, I'm interested.

Secret Santa

ValiantGinger's Secret Santa is samjudd. Help samjudd pick the right book.


Alliebadger: Check out The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss - one of my favorite fantasy novels with a beautiful world and fascinating characters! (Sat, 01 Dec 2018 14:16:34 -0500)

Peace2: Perhaps Rangers Apprentice 1 - The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan (Sun, 02 Dec 2018 15:47:00 -0500)

samjudd: Hey ValiantGinger!

You'll be likely celebrating some holiday or other when you get this, so I hope whatever it is it's gone/going awesome! I tried to pick out a decent variety of things not in your library but that seemed to be in your wheelhouse of suggestions. All four of them are things I've recommended to friends over and over again, and I hope you'll like too. The Name of the Wind (recommended above) is also incredible and you should totally read it, but alas there is only so much room. If these work out well and you're interested in more recommendations, feel free to send me a message. Happy Secret Santa! (Wed, 05 Dec 2018 01:33:45 -0500)

lorannen: Removed The Complete Sherlock Holmes (B007PT1PEY)—it looks like ValiantGinger already has an omnibus of Holmes stories. Replaced with The Name of the Wind (B0010SKUYM) suggested by Alliebadger.

Done. (Wed, 19 Dec 2018 02:27:10 -0500)
