Thread title’s about the gist of it. I’m running out of ideas from my local library and I’d love to get into some new series.
In sci-fi/fantasy territory: I’ve read and really enjoyed, so far, the books from Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Susanna Clarke, Jasper Fforde, Christopher Moore, and David Eddings. I loved the Vorkosigan saga by Lois McMaster Bujold and I thought The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Heinlein was okay (Stranger in a Strange Land wasn’t my cup of tea). I finished A Game of Thrones but haven’t picked up the second one yet; right now I’m just getting into the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik (so good!).
As for historical fiction, I read through the entire Master and Commander series by Patrick O’Brian and really like both Pillars Of The Earth and World Without End by Ken Follett. I love anything set in medieval or renaissance England, but I’m not picky.
