Who are your favourite authors?
Other than Michael Scott of course I admire J.K Rowling and John Green and Julie Anne Peters for their ado lit work. As someone who wants to write young adult novels I think that the imagination that went into the creation of books like Harry Potter and the Immortal series, the blending of history and fiction, the bluntness of books like Looking for Alaska, and the tackling of controversial subjects like in Luna places these authors on a whole other level.

What are your favourite genres?
I suppose fiction, in all its forms(sci fi, fantasy, realistic, historical etc...)

What is your all time #1 favourite book?
This question is SO not fair.
I really enjoyed The Handmaid's Tale, American Gods, The Historian and so many others, but those were the first three that popped in my head so I'm sticking with those

What else are you reading right now?
I just finished The Necromancer so I haven't officially started reading anything just yet but, I have a nice new copy of Brave New World by Aldous Huxley which is a shoo in for my next read.

Thats relatively easy: Michael Scott, JKR (looks as though she's retired...), Rick Riordan, Eoin Colfer, JRR Tolkien, Brandon Mull (a local author), Christopher Paolini... Thats all that comes to mind
What are your favourite genres?
FANTASY and FICTION. PERIOD.
What is your all time #1 favourite book?
Oh, this is an evil question. EVIL, I tell you. I suppose, if my life depended on whether on not I chose... I wouldn't choose. Yes, thats right. I'd DIE!
What else are you reading right now?
Not much... I usually reread. Right now, I'm waiting for books to come out rather than reading books, though I might look into Ranger's Apprentice.

Who are your favourite authors?

In no particular order:
Philip Pullman, Eoin Colfer, Lemony Snicket , Linda Buckley-Archer, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and, of course, Michael Scott.

What are your favourite genres?

As the Above may reveal, Fantasy and Science Fiction are great for me.

What is your all time #1 favourite book?

This is a tie between a lot of books. Actually, most of my favourite books are series, all of which are more or less equally good.

What else are you reading right now?

I just finished Going Postal by Terry Pratchett, as well as another re-read of The Tar Man by Linda Buckley-Archer. Other than that, I´m halfway through The Sourceress, the author of which we all know.

If you could name one book that left you speechless or made a huge mark on your life or imagination, what is it?

The Time Quake Trilogy by Linda Buckley-Archer and His Dark Materials are the only books I remember that has ever made me cry. Lemony Snicket´s A Series Of Unfortunate Events are so breathtakingly intricate and humourous. The other authors I mentioned are no less genius than these, but they´re less specific about the nature of their genius.

As for the matter of favourite series: A Series Of Unfortunate Events, The Discworld Chronicles, The Time Quake Trilogy, His Dark Materials and The Secrets Of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel are all series that must be read. Harry Potter is a really good series, too, but far, far overrated.

A walk to remember, though this one isn't fantasy nor real life this one reminds me a lot of my childhood.

What else are you reading right now?
Crescendo, but I'm reading this when I don't have anything to read. And I was planning to read Neil Gaiman books.

If you could name one book that left you speechless or made a huge mark on your life or imagination, what is it?
It would be Harry Potter, because she really created a whole new world.

I wrote down my opinion a long ago, but I changed a lot, so I deleted my post, let's see it now...

Who are your favorite authors?

That doesn't changed too much. J.R.R. Tolkien, Jack London, George Orwell, Joseph Heller, Alexandre Dumas, Umberto Eco, Salman Rushdie, George R.R. Martin, Shakespeare, P.G. Wodehouse, Douglas Adams, Oscar Wilde and finally, Michael Scott.

What are your favorite genres?

I don't like specifying to genres... Fantasy's once been worth reading, but now this is all stained in my opinion. Anyway, the genres I like are: historical, paranoid, saga (and I mean it in the original meaning), dark fantasy. I've always liked dramas, myths and poems too (even if they don't count as a genre).

What is your all time #1 favorite book?

What a terrible question! I don't rank the books I've read, I don't make gradiations... I have the books I like and the ones I don't, and I have the ones I like more than others. But I'll never have a #1.

What else are you reading right now?

I'm reading A Feast for Crows, fourth of A Song of Ice and Fire, eagerly waiting for the fifth.

If you could name one book that left you speechless or made a huge mark on your life or imagination, what is it?

I couldn't name one! I read several books that really left a mark on me, but there are so many of them! Tolkien's Narn i Chîn Húrin (The Tale of the Children of Húrin), George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Richard III and Hamlet, Orwell's 1984 and Rushdie's Midnight's Children is certainly among those.

Not asked, but if anyone cared about favorite series:

A Song of Ice and Fire, Lord of the Rings and Silmarillion (with everything else), His Dark Materials, Jeeves-novels, Diaries of Adrian Mole...

And Multiverse: I deeply agree about Harry Potter. flamelssecret/Agreed.gif
