Sherlock Holmes wasn't mentioned. That's a crime.
Laments of passion
Obstructed by fear.
Under guises of jovial chatter;
Incredulous hopes
Steadily feasting away-
Eating away at my heart.

If The Princess Bride were on the list, it would have won!
I hope it's a good joke because otherwise I'll have got it for nothing...

I don't suppose we can be fans of our own works, can we? My vote goes to Legacy of Krazatan by Tylor Kranyak, which is me by the way.

I must be honest! Deep breaths, deep breaths.

Okay. I never read any of those books.

...

Kill me.
Whee. I don't even know what to put here.

This is old, but I can't be tamed.

While Harry Potter and LOTR are <3 worthy, I've never loved a series more than the Inheritance Cycle. It's a happy medium for me- high literary merit but without an older tone that's a bit more difficult to decipher. Also, I can reread each of the books a bazillion times without ever being bored and I just love 'em so much.

Also, I am disappointed by the lack of other John Green books! TFiOS is the only one I haven't read yet, but Looking for Alaska made my heart sing and cry and stuff.

No Warriors, eh? Then I guess I'll say Lord of the Rings.

I love Harry Potter, LOTR, Hunger Games and Percy Jackson. The Fault in Our Stars made me cry my eyes out and I could not read to the end.

I agree that it has been a crime that The Chronicles of Narnia and The Saga of Darren Shan are not part of this poll. :(
You cannot list every series but they are still greats.
Darran Shan will stay with me for a long time. <3

Yeah. I watched the movie before I read the books (simply because I was already busy with another series) and loved the movie. I read the books and then watched the movie the second time. It was awful.

I love how no one's ever noticed that Eragon is 60% Belgariad, 20% Anne McCaffrey, and 20% LOTR. Even the gedway ignasia was stolen :shock:.
