(1/5) > >>

lets all go out for some frosty chocolate milkshakes:
i changed my mind all your book suggestions suck ahahahha throws up on self

Transall Saga< one of my favorites and everyone i know who has read it has loved it.

Sebastian Moran:
Recommend Neil Gaiman to anyone regardless 
his writing is just pleasing 
Neverwhere is my favourite but I'd recommend American Gods as that borders more so on the superpowerish side of things... person-thrown-into-odd-world perhaps? 
YEAH just trust me go on 
Mo Hayder writes good thriller stuff, bit unusual, but still plausible if you know what I mean. Tokyo, Pig Island, Birdman, that sort of thing.. though the last on that list is more ~crime~ 
I'm just looking at my bookshelf I don't have many books with me |8 
Though I'll probably end up throwing things at you after the holidays 
bringing with me armfuls of books I Think You Might Like 
aka ones that I will force you to like 
Oh, the Wasp Factory by Iain Banks is one of my favourites 
Sort of coming-of-age book 
In a rather twisted way 
I like it 
I own probably too many copies of it 
And could I possibly tempt you with a Gatiss book? 
the ridiculously entertaining flamboyant spy novels 
go awwwn 
I have The Devil In Amber here I can lend it to you 
-wiggles eyebrows-

This this this x100
I've read American Gods and I'm reading Stardust, and his writing style is just fantastic. It feels like he's telling you the story directly rather than just putting it on paper. American Gods come across as ultra strange at times, but his writing style and imagination just blow me away. I won't pretend to be a big reader, but I'd happily pick up anything with his name on it.

Do you like historical fiction? They don't go into super fiction but instead take place during a historical period/event.

They usually are really good.
