harry potter series
twilight series
speak

...

i can't think of a last one. but i know i left a lot out, i love books. so i guess i'll leave that spot for everything that i've left out.

This tends to change regularly, depending on what I have been reading at the time so it is currently...


1. The Twilight Series (does it actually have a name?)--Stephanie Meyer
2. Good Omens--Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchet
3. The Children of Hurin
4. The Dragonlance Chronicles
5. The Lord of the Rings

Um, I'll come up with the othe five...
