My all-time favorite books are:

"The Chronicles of Narnia" and "The Lord of the Rings"

I've read all of the books in "The Chronicles of Narnia" at least 3 times and I love to listen to the Focus on the Family radio drama for those books. I've read "The Lord of the Rings" through twice (an impressive feat considering that all three books have an added word count of 481,103).

I have decided to read these two series once every year starting with 2016. I've already read the two series this year.

I would probably have to say the same as stucky, the chronicles of Narnia, the hobbit, the lord of the rings, and Madeline le'angle's books (such as a wind in the door, and a wrinkle in time, along with a bunch of others)
That's about it for me....

Yeah, those are good too. For me, I'd have to say I like all of Tolkien's works, although I haven't finished all of the LOTR trilogy yet. I hope to finish it this summer.

The Last Dragon Chronicles was one of my favorites for about five years... until I found Brandon Sanderson. He has a fantasy universe called the Cosmere in which most of his fantasy series' take place. Make sure you read them in publication order, though.
I'll look in to the Ashtown Burials, they sound interesting.

Metro 2033's the one to start with. It's the easiest of the three, the most straightforward adventure-esque. Metro 2034 is much more reflective and almost poetic, while Metro 2035 is.... really really dark, even by the standards of the other two. Much more realistic as well.


Also a heads-up, they're quite adult in nature.

All of them, to varying degrees. 2033 and 2034 aren't too bad, some mild to strong cursing, some violence, more sexual innuendo then anything else.

2035 is much more adult in nature, more of everything, as well as some extremely brutal and dark scenes. (Though, to be honest, the whole series is dark, considering that it's post-apocalyptic.)

However, if you haven't read any Slavic literature, it's quite a change from what's popular in the West. Generally much more cynical in nature, but almost always fascinating.

.The Inheritance Cycle (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance) - are all fantastic reads. A great fantasy series.

.Harry Potter. - Obviously.

.I'm currently working my way through lots of the expanded Universe Star Wars books (both Legends and new cannon.) - It's fantastic to see how so many different authors can weave stories around each other and have it all fit together.

.I read them a long time ago, but I remember the Dragonmaster trilogy was very good.

A lot of these are pretty adult in nature, so you'll have to see if they're right for you.

-Childhood's End, by Arthur C Clarke. Classic sci-fi, can't go wrong.

-The Martian, by Andy Weir. Most of you have probably seen the movie, the book is much better. Lots of science and a genuinely funny book.

-Anything by Tolkien of course.

-Dune, by Frank Herbert. He can sometimes get a little dense, but Dune brings a lot of interesting themes together in a really cool universe.

-1984/Animal Farm, by George Orwell. Orwell is a tad overrated, IMO, but these are classics that shouldn't be missed.

-Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley. Same vein as 1984, but creating a dystopia from a very different set of circumstances.

-The Forever War, by Joe Haldeman. Really interesting sci-fi war story. Perhaps somewhat in the vein of Heinlein, but about space marines (essentially,) that travel to deep space to fight an unknown alien threat, only to find that massive time dilation means that a 9 month tour of duty for them means that about 50 years have passed back on Earth.

-A Canticle for Leibowitz, by Walter M. Miller. Not an easy book to get into by any means, but fascinating sci-fi with a heavy dose of philosophy and cynicism, about an order of monks living in a post-nuclear United States. Takes place over the course of 1800 years.

-A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin. Most of you have probably heard of these, but they really do live up to the hype. Martin can sometimes get a little lost in his own world-building, but he really captures the feel of a sprawling realistic fantasy epic with a lot of nuance.

-The Witcher books, by Andrzej Sapkowski. Definitely strange to get into, for anyone who hasn't read Slavic literature before, but this is a good jumping off point. A bit like really dark and adult versions of Grimm's Fairy Tales. Sapkowski has a really dark sense of humor and writes great character dynamics, even if he's not as heavy on the politics as Martin.

-The Metro trilogy, by Dmitry Glukhovsky. Glukhovsky is one of the best writers I've read that can write really human characters. The Metro books are full of that cynical overtone that characterizes most Slavic literature, but the world he's created feels genuinely fresh, and each book in the trilogy feels extremely distinct from the others.

-Futu.re, by Dmitry Glukhovsky. Again with Glukhovsky, but instead of a post-apocalyptic trilogy, a standalone dystopian novel in the vein of The Hunger Games or Brave New World. Here, humans have developed a cure for aging that lets them live indefinitely (unless they die by accident.) However, the cost of this is immense population growth, meaning that Europe outlaws childbirth unless one of the parents gives up their immortality. Follows an enforcer of this policy. Is extremely dark and brutal in places, but the sheer humanity in this one is incredible, plus he manages to have philosophical discussions without coming off as pretentious.

I have a lot more, but I should probably stop here.

So I'd responded to a thread like this in the MAN Cave. So I'd thought I copy and past the two I haven't talked about here before.

The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher: Think Harry Potter mixed with a crime show. The world that has been created is extremely well thought-out, the characters are also really great and the action is simply amazing!

The Six of Crows series by Leigh Bardugo: This book has everything you'd want, great characters, amazing world-building and a very interesting plot. It's probably one of the best book series I've read in a while. I am currently making custom figs for the main cast.

I have so many favorites... usually series though.

There's always the Star Wars: Republic Commando novels by Karen Travis.

There's the Firebird series by Kathy Tyers

Loved the Young Jedi Knight series by I believe that was Kevin J Anderson and Rebecca something but I could be wrong.

The Daystar Voyages by Morris or something like that. That one was good until the last book where they had one character in two locations.

There's a bunch of other Star Wars books that I loved. Why I hated that the new movies removed my favorite characters from existence. There's also the Double Helix Star Trek series. The Mars Diaries series. Inkheart. Just too many to list.

Yeah, you're not wrong, but in saying that I quite like the diversity within those Earth-cultures. It's not your standard dwarves, elves and orks. And a lot of the actual strategies and battle plans that he uses are interesting as well. Not every battle is just two armies charging at each other.

Not historical accuracy... realim. Back quivers are difficult, back scabbards near impossible to use.

I critisoce his shear lack of creativity!

Ah, okay. I understand what you mean now. Also...

I used a back quiver for a long time, you just get used to it. It was also all I had at the time (I made it myself), so that helped too.xP Also, back scabbards ARE near impossible to use.I Made one out of duct tape for a nerf sword, a person is more likely to be injured drawing their sword than in the fight itself.xP

It's a shame when Americans can't even appreciate English from England.

Both are correct, however in 19th century America they wanted to distance themselves from Britain, and so Americans changed S's to Z's, got rid of silent letters, etc.

Try using a back quiver on a bumpy horse or when jumping over logs, etc.

Yes, it can be done with modifications- but why modify when you can just use a side quiver? Anyway going under doors, etc. Can be difficult.

On scabbards... Yeah.

Unless your sword length is smaller then the length of your arm it is impossible without very heavy modifications.

And of course using a side scabbard is = or even < back scabbard (with very heavy modification)

I was on YouTube, and on boy said to a you tuber-

Your incorrect. Idio*! Simply leave half the scabbard uncovered!

You could do that,

But it just defeats one of the main reason to carry a scabbard. :P
