Hey everyone! I'm a fantasy fiction fanatic in search of good books to read. If you want to get really specific, I love midieval fantasy. But if you have a good book that's not fiction, tell me and I'll probably like it too. Thanks!

Hi there! I'm Trish. I just wanted to let you know that this is the part of the site where you can post your writing, and get people to review some of your pieces. If you want to ask for some book recommendations, I would go to the lounge in community forums and post there. You'll get a ton of people who will be all too eager to help you find some good books to read! I don't really know any medieval fantasy books that you might like at the moment, but I'm sure others will.

Feel free to PM me or anyone else with any questions etc. See you around! :D

Edit:

There is a forum called 'Book Reviews'

People there will be able to recommend fabulous books for you to read. I'll happily look through my bookcase for you as well. Contact a Mod to move this or just repost it yourself in that forum.

Questions? PM me anytime.

Ok, yup, I was wrong about where to go for this. Kamas is right! Sorry about that!

Maybe I should check over the forums better first next time! :lol: Anyways, just listen to what Kamas says. ;) See you around!

I needn't say Harry Potter, doubtless you've read that ...
Medieval fantasy? Erm, can't help you there ...
Have you read the Deltora Quest series, by Emily Rodda? There are three of them, great big books. They're fantasy, in a fantasy world, and there are riddles and everything, and a sense of danger and you-can't-trust-anyone. I really like them; you might too, it's worth a try. ;)
The Inkheart trilogy? I know I really enjoyed all three books. Some people say they're hard to get into, because Cornelia Funke sidetracks a bit, but I don't know about that.
The Bartimaeus trilogy, by Jonathan Stroud, is a very good read. Witty, funny and sweet at times, but never soppy. :)
Artemis Fowl? I know it's sci-fi, but I very much like these books (by Eoin Colfer, in case you didn't know).
I can't think of anything else at the moment, I hope I've been helpful.

I really liked a book called "Midnight Magic" By Avi; it's a bit of a fantasy set in Medieval Italy which i found interesting as most authors tend to write about Medieval England which becomes a bit boring after a while. The Maximum Ride series by James Patterson is a great series of sci-fi adventures, also the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series are great modern fantasy series. I didn't pick em up at first because I though they were forbidden romances like Twilight, but they're actually quite different. "I, Coriander" by *i forgot who* is a good book set in the 19th century, a fantasy too. The Harry Potter books I liked as well, and the Inkheart trilogy.
Hope that helped!

I really like the Rangers Apprentice series by John Flannagan. In the first few books its about a boy name Will who is apprentice to Halt, one of the kingdoms greatest rangers. Rangers are experts of silence, stealth, and using weapons of bows and arrows and stuff like that. I know I didn't do the best job of explaining it, but its really a great series.
