To see the lists go to Reading Lists and Master List which is arranged alphabetically.
My list of books I put forard is:
1. WAIFS AND STRAYS - CHARLES DE LINT (a wonderful collection of his short stories that are a great introduction to his work)
2. HIGH FIDELITY - NICK HORNBY (my favourite of all of his books, a must for book and music lovers)
3. THE BLACK JEWELS TRILOGY - ANNE BISHOP (dark fantasy at it's best, somehow particularly suited to female readers I think)
4. INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE - ANNE RICE (where The Vampire Chronicles all began)
5. THE MAGICIANS NEPHEW - CS LEWIS (the first in the Narnia series and often sadly neglected. Perhaps my favourite in the series)
6. THE LOOKING GLASS WARS - FRANK BEDDOR (a wonderful re-telling of Alice in Wonderland which turns the whole tale on it's head. Found in the teenage reading/young adult section but will appeal to older readers too)
7. THE GOOSE GIRL - SHANNON HALE (a fairy tale re-telling I just finished reading and fell in love with. Highly recommended)
8. LOLITA - VLADIMIR NABOKOV (classic tale of man loves young girl, disturbing but one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read)
9. DAUGHTER OF THE FOREST - JULIET MARILLIER (the first in the Sevenwaters Trilogy based on a fairy tale set in Celtic times)
10. THE HANDMAIDS TALE - Margaret Atwood (everyone should read this dystopian novel)
I know that for people who read this blog it is a pretty standard list for me, but I can't help what I like!
What I hope to read are:
1. Beauty - Robin McKinley (Book Nut)
2. Stardust - Neil Gaiman (Becky)
3. Tamsin - Peter S Beagle (prplpen)
There are lots more I hope to read if possible like Inkheart (Cornelia Funke), The Princess Bride (William Goldman), Howls Moving Castle (Dianna Wynne Jones) and Moonheart (Charles de Lint).
