I love to read and to write and am looking for types of books to span into and try out.

I love horror/thriller and mystery books. The darker the better. Stephen King and Dean Koontz are by far my fav authors. I love some of Anne Rice's books too. Along with any of the Dragon Lance Books and the huge nine book series by Robin Hobb. Also love Poe and Hemmingway. Mel Odom, Jenkins and LeHay has jumped up into my fav's list too. Love the orriginal Left Behind Series, also am reading the military and political series of it. Very good books.

I'm more into techno thrillers, sci fi, and some classics.

I prefer fantasy such as J. R. R. Tolkien or C. S. Lewis...I also like suspense thrillers like Thr3e by Ted Dekker. I would say Ted Dekker is my favorite author at the moment and The Circle Trilogy by him is my favorite series...

Ha! First post! Well, I do a lot of reading and writing myself. (At least, it feels like a lot some timesÖ) I definitely like Ted Dekker, though Iíve only read the Circle so far. Itís way awesome, and few things are as fun as pretending itís real to freak out your friends!

Iíd also recommend Frank Peretti. Way creepy books! Anyways, The Oath is probably the scariest of his books. Then thereís This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness. Those are partially from the perspective of angles. Lastly, Iíd recommend the Veritas Project series. The Hangmanís Curse was creepy because I hateÖ well, I donít want to spoil it. The second is called Nightmare Academy and it freaked me out because I read it while at an internship in the middle of nowhere, and the phones went dead for like a week or something. Iíd definitely classify them all as must read books.

Prey by Michael Crichton was pretty good too but thereís an excess of profanity which kinda ruined it for me. By the time I was done with it, I still thought my computer was going to kill me somehow, though.

um... Something Random! Huzzah!

yeah the circle trilogy is 'bout of the the best books i've ever read - the first few chapters are not written so well, and there are some bizarre metaphors sometimes, but overall - it is truely amazing, one of the best novels to capture the essense of christianity in a fantasy setting.
