  1. Wonderful list. I have read all but the Eragon series. I tried but could never get into it. Other than that, I completely agree.

  2. Ever since harry potter High fantasy seems to fall flat with me in books (movies is another story) I tend to lean more towards Dystopians now (which are a hit and miss as well) and some Young young adult/juvenile/ middle grade which can be really good I love Rick Riordan and currently am going to read the Read pyramid soon

    The book I'm reading right now is Breadcrumbs http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10637959-breadcrumbs and so far its really good and really fantasy so yeah
