Ah books.. Tiny little things full of adventure, romance, comedy, horror and everything else you can possibly think of.

I adore books, specifically the supernatural genre but i have been known to branch out a little sometimes.

My favourites include:

Child of Time - Isaac Asimov
Harry Potter series - J.K. Rowling
Nightworld series - L.J. Smith
The Forbidden Game series - L.J. Smith
Wicca series - Cate Tiernan
Twilight saga - Stephenie Meyer
Most things written by Virginia Andrews, Stephen King and Anne Rice

What's your favourite book(s)? :D

Lol I must admit I do enjoy leafing through cookbooks but that's nothing you couldn't find online for a recipe or 2.. To be fair I do have a few Ebooks but nothing compares to a real book.

I love these books:
Books of the Belgariad
Books of the Malloroen
Polgara, the Sorceress
Belgarath, the Sorcerer
All by David & Leigh Eddings!
They are connected, starting with Books of the Belgariad and ends with Books of the Malloroen.
Polgara, the Sorceress and Belgarath, the Sorcerer are books about what happends before Books of the Belgariad - someone who read them?

And of course, i love Harry Potter and Dan Browns books....

my favourite of all time is the Narnia books by C.S Lewis.

The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe was read to me back in primary school, and my godmother then went and bought me all the others to read myself.

i still have the originals that she bought, but since then i've bought a new box set for boychild to read them - and a collectors edition all of them together in a hardback.
(no.. i dont like the films though!)

other than that... i tend to read horror, favourite authors being shaun hutson, dean koontz and graham masterton.

The Wicca series by Cate Tiernan was the first set of books I ever got around to finishing the set as it was a really good read. Randomlyrandom i see you like that sort of book, have you tried the "House of Night" series yet?

If anyone wants a good book to read you must read The Innocent Man by John Grisham

Its about a pro baseball player who went off the rails with drink and drugs only to be arrested and charged with murder. He ended up on death row for years before being found innocent..only to die shortly after being released.

Totally brillant book to read...a must for people who love reading
RIP alice main 10-09-1936 to 12-10-2009..always loved so deeply missed..Loving you forever mum x x

When I was younger, my favourite books were the Adventure Series - Just being able to read about young kids getting into so many different adventures was great.

Recently, it is without a doubt the Dan Brown books.. I have read each of them numerous times, and they still keep me hooked :) I think my favourite is Digital Fortress (it's about computers after all)

And for anyone like me who likes Dan Brown, I would highly recommend taking a look into Chris Kuzneski and the books he has written.
All his books include the same main characters, but all the stories are very much different and unique. Couldn't put them down once I had started!
