but. there are some that i will read and reread and reread.
so this is the list.
1. The Riddle-Master Trilogy [particularly Heir of Sea and Fire]
i love these ones because they're epic fantasy with brilliant characters, and i always discover some new detail every time i read them.
2. Busman's Honeymoon
this one i love because it's a Lord Peter mystery (and i just love those in general) but it's also a love story at the same time, and it just makes me happy.
3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
this one makes my list of favourites because of the ending. i just love how it ends. it couldn't have been better.
4. The Space Trilogy [particularly That Hideous Strength]
well now. first of all, it's C. S. Lewis. so that makes it automatically awesome to begin with. and then there's space travel, and angels - excuse me, eldila (singular "eldil") and Oyeresu (singular Oyarsa) - and the end of the world, and just awesomeness. read it.
5. The Blue Sword
oh my gosh. i freaking love this book. and i don't know if i have a why. i just love it. i read the prequel once and i love this one better. it's a fantastic book.
man i love fantasy. and yes i cheated by sticking trilogies in. but really. i can't just pick five books.
anyways. gotta go make dinner.
