Witch World something like 30 or 35 books in this series. But before you panic, it's broken down into a number of "mini" series where the only connection is the planetary setting. They travel from the first ones that are set in Estcarp, which is ruled by the Witches Tribunal to Escore, which is to the West (yeah, yeah, we all know the homage to Tolkein here, although I'm not sure how much real homage there was, since this was written only 8 years after the publication of LoTR and I'm not sure when that made it over to the U.S.) then there are the Dales of High Hallack (on a different continent), the Sea Lords, the Falconer's and many, many many others. Mixed fantasy/sci fi series. My recommendation for reading order is:

Witch World
Web of the Witch World
Three Against the Witch World
Warlock of the Witch World
Sorceress of the Witch World

After that, you can pick and choose what you want to read. But those 5 books set up the rest of the series, and are one of the sub-series that I mentioned.

Witch World is one of those places where people who "just disappear" find themselves. It's a parallel world, one that is apparently, at least according to the various books in the series, a very popular place for people from all the various parallel worlds to go to.

Alli (allirichyb) The Name of the Wind'
This series is so much better than any fantasy novel you've ever read ever. I used to think that Harry Potter was the best, but I was so wrong.

Kate | 5 comments Try Megan Whalen Turner. Her Thief series is excellent YA fantasy fic.

This is a very good series! However there are currently only two books out and it has been years since the second one was released. So that might be something to consider before diving into this series.

Kimberlyn (abookmazedhead) | 35 comments Also I want to recommend the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. The series is a part of a bigger fantasy universe called the Cosmere and it is amazing!

Could you give us some idea of what you've already read, and examples of series or books that you liked (and maybe examples of some you didn't like)? That will help people know what to suggest.

Tadgh | 28 comments For fantasy, I've been enjoying Robin Hobb's books! Most of them are trilogies making up a larger series; her website seems to list them mostly in order. (Although I believe The Rain Wild Chronicles are after Liveship Traders Trilogy, not The Tawny Man Triology. I'm unsure, and not up-to-date as my partner's the one who got me into her books.)


The Reading Raccoon (readingraccoon) | 145 comments Maybe something by Kate Elliott Kate Elliott
Like the Court of Fives series Court of Fives
or Cold Mage series. Cold Magic
Also:
The Sin Eater’s Daughter
Red Rising
Daughter of the Blood

I've read most of the basic popular series, HP, PJO, Hunger Games, etc. I like series that create a new world, one of my all-time favorite series is the Hollows, by Kim Harrison.
