Discworld series....

Awyiss

 

For myself, I'm quite fond of Robin Hobb stuff. Game of Thrones is cool too. From classics I'd say The Count of Monte Cristo. Having quite fond memories of Hesse books as well. List is too damn long to name them all. Horror stories by HP Lovecraft tho, amazing.

 

Got Doors of Perception for Christmas, should starting reading that.
