Mostly fantasy, but also good books from other genres (detectives by Agatha Christie, historical and adventurous novels a.o.) The only genre I don't like much is romance.

Yay for Tolkien, Paulo Coelho and David Gemmell :) may I recommend a few?

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray, and for a tiny classic, The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge. I'm currently reading Angelology by Danielle Trussoni and it's pretty darn excellent.

Long live literature :D

Marion Zimmer Bradley, it goes about the women behind King Arthur's throne, and also a great book is Shardik of Richard Adams.
Thanks for paying attention to the title I choose for you.

The moominsfilms are also adorable

Opäť zaujímavý nápad pre žurnál. Dobrý výber kníh, samé klasiky. Milo ma prekvapilo, že si do zoznamu pridala aj moju obľúbenú knihu Meno vetra. Možno niekedy v budúcnosti skúsim niečo podobné, avšak môj zoznam odporúčaných kníh by bol asi príliš dlhý ... ;)

:iconmirachravaia:
MirachRavaia Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Meno vetra je super, len stále čakám na pokračovanie... Ja mám tiež v zozname viac kníh, ale dala som sem len tie ku ktorým som našla obrázky. Nejaké tipy? ;)

No vskutku si Patrick Rothfuss dáva s tým pokračovaním načas. Ja by som tam určite pridala našeho spisovateľa Juraja Červenáka (aj keď čitatelia zo zahraničia nemajú moc veľké šance si jeho knihy prečítať) a možno niečo od Bernharda Hennena. Inak mojou srdcovou záležitosťou sú, okrem J. R. R. Tolkiena a R. A. Salvatoreho, knihy od Terryho Goodkinda.
Knihy sú mojou veľkou láskou, preto sa mi vyberá veľmi ťažko tých pár naj. :reading:

:iconmirachravaia:
MirachRavaia Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Od Hennena ani Goodkinda som ešte nič nečítala, skúsim sa poobzerať či niečo nezoženiem, a od Červenáka som tiež čítala iba jednu poviedku, ktorou som nebola veľmi nadšená, ale asi sa nedá súdiť celá tvorba na základe jednej poviedky. (A som trochu zaujatá keďže ho beriem ako konkurenciu keď konečne dopíšem svoju knihu Srdce hory :D)

Máš pravdu, Červenák má svojský, trochu drsný stýl , no jeho trilógia Černokňažník sa mi veľmi páčila. Hennena (Elfovia, Elfská zima a pod.) a hlavne moju srdcovú záležitosť Goodkinda (sága Meč pravdy) vrelo odporúčam. Ich knihy sú veľmi kvalitne napísané a čítajú sa doslova jedným dychom.
Dúfam, že tvoja kniha uzrie svetlo sveta a dostane sa aj k nám bežným smrteľníkom. Kvalitnej slovenskej tvorby je žiaľ neskutočne málo. Držím ti palce. ;)

Ďakujem! Mám už napísaných cez 200 strán, ale je to iba začiatok príbehu, takže možno o niekoľko rokov.
