GIVE ME RECOMMENDATIONS please *hopeful smile* I like mystery and crime and fantasy! Tamora pierce is one of my favourite authors. so is kristin cashore. I’ve read all their books. I need more!

ooo okay!

Let’s see…

I recommend Neil Gaiman to everyone, but seriously, you should check out Neil Gaiman. If you want to keep within the fantasy genre, try Stardust — and I’ve heard Neverwhere is fantastic, but that’s the one I haven’t managed to read yet myself, so I can’t make any guarantees. :)

Stephen King’s The Eyes of the Dragon was also quite good, though I haven’t read it in a few years. OOO AND HIS DARK TOWER SERIES though the first is probably the best.

As for mystery, I always recommend anything by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. They tend to throw in supernatural elements into their novels, and their series starring Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast is tops.

Also, you can always try Googling “[author] readlikes,” if you want to try out a new author similar to one you already love.

Hopefully that helps a bit! :)
