Squitty no more...

Hi, I'm new to the community! I was looking around LJ to see if there were any communities for fantasy book lovers, and so there was! I'm looking forward to hearing what everybody likes and sharing my own personal favorites, too. :)

I looked back through the entries to make sure that I wouldn't be repeating anybody. I'd like to share a couple titles that I enjoyed.

1) "Wit'ch Fire" by James Clemens (I might have spelled his last name wrong) - It's pretty dark, and has a lot of blood and violence in it. But it's fast paced and it really kept my attention. I read through it in only a couple days, where as a lot of times I'll end up not getting through a book for a week or more. It's about a young teen girl who ends up being the wit'ch of an ancient prophecy. The party that gathers with her is certainly a motley crew, but they all have distinct personalities and are quite likable. I'm very much looking forward to the second book in the series.

2) "Inkheart" by Cornelia Funke - This book is aimed more at the target crowd of Harry Potter, but I'd say it's a good read for adults, too. It's another book I went through in only a couple days' time. It's about a 12 year old girl whose father has a special talent for "reading characters out of books" when he reads out loud. It just so happened that he read the villian of a book out into the real world, and that villian wants her father to read out several of his other... companions. Like with the first book I mentioned, I'm looking forward to book two of this series, as well!

I hope to be hearing about some more good stories from you guys soon! Take care!
