Well what is it?


I'd have to say, I don't have just one.
I like the Hunger Games Trilogy.
Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate events.
Yes. The all well known Harry Potter series.
The Lovely Bones
Maxiumum Ride series
A lot of books, but those are the classics I can think of on the spot.

Terminator movies, at least the first two.

The Rome series, best show I've ever seen.

Books, meh, we don't get cool books in here, and I get bored of e-books.

Wheel of Time, Dragonlance, the DeathGate Cycle, and the Mistborn Trilogy.

I started reading the Pyromancer trilogy, but I can't find the last book, Aeromancer. They're all really old books, which explains why. I'm sure there are other books/ series I can't remember, but those are my top favorites.

Discworld. I've always loved the perfect blend of humor, and creativity that Terry Pratchett has.

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
Lord of the rings is probably my favorite book series, although the Gunslinger was mostly good too.

The Chrono Trigger games are my favorite game series. Old school.

And I like a lot of TV shows, probably my favorite right now is Breaking bad. However, The Sopranos would have to be my all time favorite.

Quoted for truth.

Also...you are the only person I've met on Iwaku and in a LONG ASS TIME that's read the Belgariade. Did you read just the first bit or did you read the second series, The Mallorean, as well?

My favorite series till this day, barely on top but still there, is the Redwall series. Which makes the post below this one so sad.

My favorite Omnibus aka Trilogy is Eisenhorn.

Favorite book is the Iliad.

I don't really have a favorite saga. Since sagas are stories about ancient scandinavia and germanic history, early viking travels and conflict, migration to Iceland and fueds between the above familes. Plus since they are written in Old Norse langauge it'd be a difficult read since I'd have to put everything into an online translater than read it.

Just the Belgariad. I was with someone who had them both but I didn't get a chance to read the others.

Oh dear, this is difficult.

I adore the complete Belgariad series even the Codex was useful. Though the Redemption of Althalus was in my opinion a better story, but the Belgariad was my first high fantasy love.

Howl's Moving Castle is one of my favorite books these days fiction wise.

For non-fiction I really enjoyed Dawkins' Ancestor's Tale, though one has to skim through his fundamental atheist speeches.
