|I'm the one in the middle. A couple of people have told me I look kind of like Orlando Bloom. I don't really agree.|
Anyways, one of my all-time favorite fantasy series is the late Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. It is a 14 volume, 12,000 page behemoth of a series, and every chapter is absolutely fantastic.
Anyways, after reading the final books of the Wheel of Time, I quickly became obsessed with Brandon Sanderson's work. He has 17 published works, and I read all of them within a matter of weeks. THEY ARE SO GOOD! I recommend them to everyone I meet. I even convinced Jessie to read one, and now it is on her list of top 5 favorite books, even though she is normally not a fantasy fan.
|This is the Sanderson novel I recommend starting with. I have convinced 5 other people to read it, and every one of them has absolutely loved it, fantasy fans or not.|
1. Marrying my perfect wife.
2. Having a perfect little baby girl.
3. Meeting Brandon Sanderson.
He is a really cool guy. He is funny, charismatic, and extremely good to his fans. Every person who stood in line to meet him was able to get as many books signed as they wanted, and he let everyone ask him personal questions and get pictures with him.
