My name is Sue, and I'm a Children's Librarian from Mississippi. The last series of books that I read were by Eoin Colfer, his Artemis Fowl series for children...they were great. I was wondering if anyone else has read them and might have suggestions of what to read next. I've finished the latest offering by Rowling, her Harry Potter 6th. I read adult fiction as well.

Hi Sue. Welcome to BCC!



I've never read the Artemis Fowl series, but if you're looking for young adult fiction, I love the works by Tamora Pierce, Robin McKinley, Patricia McKillip, and Patricia Wrede.QueenSidheSciFi/Fantasy DominionBook Chat Central: Online Reading Groups' Community Boards Currently reading: Origin in Death by J.D.

Welcome to the sic-fi and fantasy board!!



For young adult, I would suggest The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. I think that book is considered young adult fantasy but I might be wrong. Anyway there is nothing bad for children in this fantasy book, in my opinion. It is the only I read but I understand that it is a trilogy.Later,Eric

Hello, Sue1951!



We probably don't need to mention CS Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, but I bet those books are primed to explode to new popularity with this new movie coming up.* * *

No the Chronicles of Narnia need not be mentioned....I read them in college and have reread them so many times afterwards that I've lost count. Usually whenever I feel down I read one and it always makes me feel better.

Welcome, Waterling!



Some good medieval fantasy. Well, there's Deeds of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon, the Lioness quartet by Tamora Pierce, and Oath of Swords and War God's Own by David Weber. Some other authors that might be good, depending on what you're looking for are Terry Goodkind, Robert Jordan, Tad Williams, Terry Brooks, and George R.R. Martin.
