Usako (bbmeltdown) | 654 comments Good fantasy choices there, Donna! Daughter of the Forest is really good. Stardust will be quick and painless to finish BUT the movie ends on a better note.

I should look at your book shelf to compare our fantasy choices!

Donna  (ncdonnas) Thanks Tanja! I was debating starting another Gaiman book but I've heard so much about Marillier that I really wanted to read something from her. And to be perfectly honest, I usually prefer female authors.
I just started the Bridei series and I'm enjoying it. Although, it seems like Bridei as a young child has an oddly analytic mind. Unless it just seems that way to me because my own kids seem incapable of rational thought most of the time! lol
If you happen to have anything on your own list that you think I would enjoy, please recommend it to me, I'm always looking for something new to read!

[ JT ] | 9 comments If you enjoy Simon R. Green, I highly recommend the Deathstalker series. :) It starts with Deathstalker (obviously, hah!).

I'm finishing the very last book right now, and it's been quite a grand adventure. It's a Science Fiction adventure series with lots of political intrigue and violence.

Donna  (ncdonnas) Thanks Amanda!! I haven't read any Sci-fi at all before but I will definitely start with that one when I hit that genre! I don't know if I enjoy Simon R. Green yet, these will be the first books of his that I read.
I do appreciate the recommendation though, to be honest, 99% of that list is what people have recommended that I read.
