Post Fantasy Recs
Alright, my bookshelf is staring to run dry on good fantasy series. I've gone through Tolkien and Harry Potter several times, The Once and Future King, Mary Stewart's Merlin series, His Dark Material, just about everything Neil Gaiman has ever published, and enough Discworld novels that I need a break from them. Given that that stuff is among my favorites, what should I give a try next?

I cannot help you with my SOFT HUMAN BRAIN. So I will refer you to the sexy, cold logic of a machine with an emo haircut.

Yep! Hope it helps!

I heard about it a few months ago and completely forgot until you reminded me. Another trick you could try if you come up with sparse replies here is to clean out your Amazon search cache, then just search for those books. Then just sit back and wait for its recommendations on the main page to roll in.

I'd recommend this book. My mother read it, and it's a somewhat fantasy-based novel. She told me about it in extreme detail, so I'm not going to bother reading it, but it really sounded excellent.

Ooooh! Murakami is one of favorite authors, actually, and I haven't read that one yet! I'll put in on the list. Thanks! ^_^

Lyss, I recently got a hold of Dance Dance Dance for 2 bucks at a charity book sale! Along with Naked by David Sedaris, and Hitchhiker's Guide, which for some reason I've never read.

I'm in the middle of Sirens of Titan at the moment, mostly because it was last readable book left on my shelf before I made the above purchases. Question is, which do I read next?

Neverending Story or Spiderwick Chronicles.

Ah, I meant out of my three new books, but I'll hunt those down in the States, too!
