A big thank you to the lovely Theresa Paolo for this award.
I am, indeed, one of those who refuse to live in the real world!

This award is for book bloggers only. To receive this award the blog must be at least 50% about books (reading or writing is okay)
Along with receiving this award, you must also share your top five favorite books you have ever read. (More than five is okay) You must give this award to 5-10 other lucky book blogs you adore.

  5. Ooh, 1, 5-7, and 9 are all tremendous. HP and the Stand would easily make my top 5, and I think the GRRM books would be there too. Haven't read some of the others on your list, but seeing as how you have such wonderful taste, I'll add them to "the list". :)

  7. Thank you for the award!! Woo hoo!
    You have such a great taste in books, I am going to have to check out the ones I haven't heard about, like the fever series.

    I adore the dresden books. Have you seen Jim Butcher's live journal?

    The cold fire trilogy is my husband's favorite, he is a huge freidman fan! I just started the first one and I love her take on the Fae.

    1. You're welcome! I do have Butcher's live journal in my Google Reader. I haven't gotten much of a chance lately to look at my Google Reader, though. The Coldfire trilogy is incredibly original, and I adore the Hunter!

  9. What a fun award--congrats. I love your #1 favorite. Great taste, you have. My favorite Stephen King book (his earlier works because I don't read him anymore since he scares the crap out of me and I need to be able to function) is The Dead Zone. I loved the philosophical questions he posed with that book.
