#2 Michael Crichton
#3 Darren Shan

My favorite books:
#1 Magician (Raymond E. Feist)
#2 Silverthorn (Raymond E. Feist)
#3 A Darkness at Sethanon (Raymond E. Feist)
#4 Jurassic Park (Michael Crichton)
#5 The Lost World:Jurassic Park (Michael Crichton)

Books currently reading:
#1 Shards of a broken crown (Raymond E. Feist)
#2 Wildlife Warrior (Richard Shears)

P.S. If they made Magician into a film it would be the most epic film ever, don't get me wrong. I loved LOTR but this book was even grander... And the director would have to be Peter Jackson or Spielberg

I don't have any favourite books. (God i'm awkward today aren't i? :P) I just read everything and have opinions on each one. I mean, i like the popular books like Eragon, Eldest, all the Dan Browns, LOTR's, Harry Potters etc. But i also like books that not many people have read, like the newest one which i've just read which was a really great read, 'The Ragng Quiet' by Sherryl Jordan. Although, she did give away something to do with the plot early in the story, and i do think the book would have been a better seller if she hadn't.

I also love 'The Vampire Lestat' by Anne Rice. Such an amazing book.
