I Could Read This Forever...

We all have them, our go to books.  The books that we know by heart but still read over and over again to immerse ourselves in the world created by the author, to struggle and survive along side our favorite characters in these stories.

For me, my go to books are The Witches of Eileanan series by Kate Forsyth.  The world of Eileanan is a rich tapestry of countries filled with fairy creatures and humans alike.  The creatures that fill the worlds in this series is absolutely wonderful and some of them I wish to meet.  It is an epic fantasy series that has some celtic mythology feel to it.  There is prophecy, there is war, there is romance, and there is magic - oh, and there are dragons.  What's not to love.

The order of this series is:
1. The Witches of Eileanan
2. The Pool of Two Moons
3. The Cursed Towers
4. The Forbidden Land
5. The Skull of the World
6. The Fathomless Caves

One of the other series that I absolutely love and could read forever is the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa, though I've not read the completion of this series yet.  I intend on reading it as soon as I can get my grubby, book loving hands on it.  This, is by far one of my favorites simply because they mythos behind the Iron Fey is so well thought out and completely believable, and the effect its creation has on the traditional courts of the Fey is believable as well.

The order of this series is:
1. The Iron King
2. The Iron Daughter
3. The Iron Queen
4. The Iron Knight

I could seriously go on and on and on about series that I could fall back on, but there are also some individual books that I can re-read over and over again.

1. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
3. Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
4. Misery by Stephen King
5. The Tommyknockers by Stephen King
6. It by Stephen King

The list goes on and on and on really.  These are just some of my absolute favorites.

My addiction to books is the main reason I can't work in a book store - second hand or otherwise.  I would be on the streets because all my money would be spent on books.
