What are some of your favorite books?
« on: January 26, 2011, 11:07:01 PM »
I have a lot of favorite books that I can read over and over, do you have any books like that? I ask because I need a couple new books, even though I have a list to buy, it's always good to make that list bigger in my opinion.

A few of my favorite books:
Cabinet of Curiosities - Douglas Preston/ Lincoln Child
The Book of The Dead - Douglas Preston/ Lincoln Child
The Temple Dogs - Molly Cochran/ Warren Murphy
By the Light of the Moon - Dean Koontz

Salems Lot by King   The Gunslinger, also by King, its the first in the Dark Tower series. After youve read that one you will probably be buisy for a while finding and reading all the rest of the series, theyre prety awsome

Actually my dad has the whole series, I could never get into many of Kings books. I don't really know why.

I think I would like your Dad :-D    Try this one, Crimson by Gord Rollo, it hooked me faster than any book ever has. Just read the prelude, before you even take it home. It will only take a couple minutes.

The Wheel of time series has been my best friend since last year haha
I saw and was silent,
I saw and thought,
and heard the speech of Odin
I heard about what lay in the runes,
and there was much council given.
At the hall of Har, In the hall of Har;
Such was the speech I heard.

Mmmm, Anne Rice :) she was so damn awesome and then the catholicism sickness got to her.... such a shame.... :cry: I really enjoyed the Witching Hour series.

Poppy Z. Brite is beautifully sick, gotta appreciate her description of gay gore especially  :-fly)

If poetry counts too, Baudelaire and his Flowers of Evil are my fav, gotta love his passion for carcasses XD

Poppy Z. Brite is wonderful. I haven't read her new, non-horror books, bout i bet they're good too.
One of my favorites is Bulgakov's Master and Margarita. I recommend this to everyone.

The Harry Potters got me started on fantasy to.
I would recommend the Alchemyst. Its the first in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott.
Can anyone tell me where I can find H.P. Lovecraft books?
When we are not curious about the world around us, we might as well be dead.

@ Wolfman-Finding original H.P lovecraft books is a bit difficult, but some libraries & Bookstores have them. Spin-offs are more common though.

@ ViciouslyMe- Nice-you have any favorites from Dresden files?
Personally I like Bob, Kincaid, and Marcone...
And Harry, of course  :-P . Gotta love a guy who quotes monty python when faced with (near) certain death at the hands of a fallen angel.

Those plus Thomas and the pizza-bribed pixies, forget the name of the main one.

Ahh..the ultimate pretty boy...not that I'd tell him to his face.
And I think it's toot-toot. Just got done reading changes-again, so it's pretty fresh in my mind.

Just finished reading Ghost Story. AWESOME!!!
