  1. Someone mentioned the Stormlight Archive; I’m reading that right now too! (I read basically everything by Brandon Sanderson). Also, I read Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas and The Princess bride by William Goldman. Gotta love fantasy!!

  2. Ahhh, yes- another Forest of Hands and Teeth lover! Carrie Ryan is an excellent writer.
    And of course, Harry Potter, Eragon, Beautiful Creatures, and Inkheart…all exquisitely magical. 🙂

  3. The Ranger’s Apprentice and The Brother and Chronicles, both by John Flanagan
    Inheritance Cycle
    The LOTR and The Hobbit
    The Kingkiller Chronicles
    Girl of Fire and Thorns Trilogy
    Tamora Pierce’s books
    Mercedes Lackey’s books, especially the Valdemar Chronicles
    Ender’s Game

    And too many more!

  4. There had better be a very good reason A Song of Ice and Fire (better known to some as Game of Thrones) is not on this list.

    (Also, I find it prudent to mention that the Eragon series and the Inheritance Cycle are one and the same thing. Together, they’re on that list in at least two separate entries under different names…)

  5. I liked The Myth Series by Robert Aspirin. They were so much fun to read. I second anything by Neil Gaiman. I also love Mercedes Lackey, and Raymond Feist. The Belgariad is really good. Mercedes Serrated Edge, and the Valdemar stuff is great.

  6. I like “The Bartimaeus Trilogy” by Jonathan Stroud. the way he wrote the main character’s point of view is very clever and witty.

  7. I can tell I am older but the Guardians of the Flame series buy Joel Rosenberg got me started. Then I have to say the Sword Of Truth series buy Terry Good Kind and the Shannara series buy Terry Brooks.

  8. I absolutely love The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion – anything to do with Middle-earth. I also love the Dragons in Our Midst series and the Seventh Tower series.

  9. The Seven Realms books by Cinda Williams Chima are my FAVORITE, just after Harry Potter (but that’s so obvious.) The Seven Realms are brilliant, but entirely underappreciated and under read.

  10. The Mistborn trilogy, by Brandon Sanderson. If you want a fantasy book that breaks conventions with a brilliant heroine, this is the series for you. Once I got to the end I cried, and nowadays I’m rarely moved by modern books, so if that says anything…

  11. I highly recommend the Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima, including The Demon King, The Exiled Queen, The Gray Wolf Throne, and The Crimson Crown. Fantastic books set in an incredible world with very well-developed characters! Love this author!

  12. -Aunt Maria and Enchanted Glass, both by Diana Wynne Jones
    -Coraline, of course. (By Neil Gaiman. Actually, everything by Neil Gaiman.)

    • I forgot to add The Dark is Rising sequence, by Susan Cooper. Arthurian lore at its AWESOMEST and mucho amazingest. I can has grammar.
