Tamora Pierce. Fantasy, coming of age. She mostly writes quartets, and a few shortstories.

Quartets, these are all in the same universe (rather medievel with knights, creatures of dreams, myth, gods/goddesses, etc.)

Song of the Lioness: 1. Alanna: The First Adventrue, 2. In The Hand Of The Goddes, 3. The Woman Who Rides Like A Man, 4. Lioness Rampant. As a young girl she pretends to be a boy so she can be a knight, turns the kingdom into an uproar when they find out. Plenty of adventures. Lovely books

The Immortals: 1. Wild Magic, 2. Wolf Speaker, 3. The Emperor Mage, 4. In The Realms of the Gods. A girl, Daine, is the daughter of a god (though she doesn't find out until much later), she has magic of an unusal variety, Wild Magic, she has the ability to speak to animals, become an animal, and more.

Protector of the Small: 1. First Test, 2. Page, 3. Squire, 4. Lady Knight. My most favorite of Tamora's books. Being the first known girl page in many, many years, Kel goes through hard times, but she proves all of the conservatives wrong. She makes a wonderful knight. She is called 'Protector of the Small' for her afinity of helpless creatures, human and animal. :)

Two of her shortstories: "Student of Ostriches", and "Elder Brother".

Student of Ostriches: About a young girl who impresses a known Shang warrior with her fighting skills that were picked up from watching how animals (taken from the African wilds) fight.

Elder Brother: An apple tree who is turned into a man. It shows how he takes being a human, how he survives, and makes a friend. ^_^


J. K. Rowling, the Harry Potter series. Well, we all know what those are about. :)

Nora Roberts. Romance, intrigue, mysteries. She has a lot of books. Very good.

oscar wilde - The Portrait of Dorian Gray  .  his wit is impecable. simply brilliant. his diction is sublime.  =  classic fiction




Heh. Dorian Gray was interesting, but after a while I found it to be tedious and overly cynical.  

Personally I like Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett for a bit of fantasy. Neverwhere, American Gods, and Good Omens are all must reads.

Koji Suzuki, he is so good, well....I'm not sure if i can say that, a bit of his writing will be lost in teh translation but still its pretty damn good

I think hes generally a horror writer all the books Ive read by him so far have been anyway, he wrote Ring, Spiral and Dark Water...there may be a few more but they are being translated so I haven't read them  

Other ones Loop, which will be in English next year, Birthday..which i think is out now, and Paradise...no idea on that one
