So, this is a tread to tell about books?
Here are my favorites:

Naomi Novik's Temeraire series (I can't wait for part 7 to come out!);

Cristopher Paolini's Inheritance series;

Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series (I'm reading it in English right now :D);

Anthony Horowitz' Alex Rider series;

John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series.

Harry Turtledove has some epic series. The colonization one is the best IMO. If you like Alternative History you should check them out.

Speaking of teen fantasy Moros, you should try the Abhorsen trilogy by Garth Nix

i'll second Moros on Cristopher Paolini's Inheritance series but another one of my favorites is The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica. each book is a very good read, although one must read the first to understand the second, read the second to understand the third ect. ect.

Moros, it all depends on the series. One of my favorite series (the one my name comes from) can be read as standalones with minimal loss of comprehension or understanding.

If at all possible, always read books in their original language ("if at all possible" ~= "don't learn a language just to read one book, but do wait with reading a book if you're planning to learn the language anyway").
The same goes for films: read the book instead (there's nothing wrong with watching the films too, but in nearly every case, the book is better; possible exception being H2G2 where every incarnation deliberately contradicts every other incarnation, so reading the book, listening to the radio shows and watching the film all complement each other).

Vapor, I disagree with you a bit about Turtledove. I was always a big fan of his, and I still read any new alt-history books he comes out with (cannot stand fantasy books in any way, dragons and mages just don't get my rocks off). I am not sure if it is because I am getting older, but to me the quality of Turtledove's writing has plumetted. I am leaning towards it being his writing, because my father agrees with this, and he was the one who introduced me to the author.

There are just so many stupid (to me) things he focuses on, such as one side in a war having worse tobacco. Is it a cool detail that should be added a couple of times? Sure. Is it something I want to hear about every 5 pages? Not at all. Also, any time a "heroic" male character meets any woman character ("character" meaning someone who has their own storyline in the book), they will INEVITABLY have sex. I know, pressures of war/alien invasion, but come on!

All that being said, Guns of the South will always rank pretty highly on my all-time favorites list.

Ok, this one isn't really like the other books mentioned but it is the best book I've ever read:

Life of Pi by Yann Martel.

Everyone should read this book.

I don't know John, Tobacco is pretty damn important, it's all about your troops morale after all.

I get what your saying though, his writing has taken a hit lately; his earlier books will be forever on my favorite books list though.

The Dark Tower series, is one of the most compelling series of books, i ever read. It is excellent and is wonderfully written. Look at it, if you ever have the chance. If you have already them all, Im only on Book 3, so dont spoil the ending :D

We need a map of Earthsea from Ursula Le Guin's series. I was thinking of doing one, but I'm already very busy with another project.

Why not John?

The Hunger Games is eh, I don't see what all the hype is about. It's like the Twilight Saga. Unlike Harry Potter, it's not that impressive. Harry Potter on the other hand and depth and it's story made sense at least.

[Insert Male Here]: Hey [Insert Female Here] I watch you every night.
[Insert Female Here]: OMFG I Love You!!!!!!

Doesn't work that way sorry.

If you want booktips I should say lordoftherings trilogy, Tolkiens other books, or maybe the wardstone chronicles. But WL isn't made for discussion books, is it? Can't get why people start to discuss things outside WL on WL. Start a blog instead! :)

I agree Iron, both the Artemis Fowl and the Edge Chronicles, were good series.
