A Song Of Ice And Fire - 5 fantasy/sci-fi books (so far) by George R. R. Martin. These are fantastic, although they get really fucking dark. If you can stand reading the worst kind of rape and incest and other such nonsense, then these are great and they will last you a long time.

Their names:

  1. A Game of Thrones
  2. A Clash of Kings
  3. A Storm of Swords (can come in two parts)
  4. A Feast for Crows
  5. A Dance with Dragons

Otherwise, pick a genre you like and stock up on those.

What are you interested in? It's hard to make a suggestion without anything to go on.

"If you can stand reading the worst kind of rape and incest"

Uh......

 

For something lighter, I would say Lord of the Rings. The movies leave out so much its ridiculous, but it'd have to be a 10 hour movie to keep everything in. Still, they have to be the best books I've ever read. How Tolkien wrote as much as he did and could keep doing it is beyond me.

@ MarioDragon I am perhaps exaggerating a tad on how bad it is, but it does get pretty dark. There is indeed rape and incest, just not such an amount to make you want to gouge your eyes out in horror. Regardless, they are great books.

Also, if you've heard of Bill Bryson, his books are fantastic. He does non-fiction, and can write about science, travel, childhood, all sorts of stuff. Amazing stuff.

The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher

13 books so far in the series.

Probably the most enjoyable series i've ever read, funny at times, brutal at times, it's the complete package.

Pity the TV series was so effin terrible.

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy books are some of the funniest and well written books I've ever read.
