  4. Za s/f zwykle nie przepadam, ale fantastykę lubię.
    W moim przypadku jest bardzo klasycznie - przeczytałam większość dzieł tolkienowskich, ale dawno już po niego nie sięgałam.
    Ostatnio na tapecie mam Pratchetta i jego właśnie gorąco polecam, choć pewnie już go czytywałaś. Niesamowity, inteligentny humor, groteska i do tego genialne zabawy słowne :)

  6. When I was a teenager (ahem, a few years ago!) I was really into fantasy and sci-fi novels. There are several books that I loved by the author John Wyndha. As well, another novel called "The Last Unicorn" by Peter S. Beagle is another classic and all are must reads!!

  7. I follow!!! Great giveaway!

  10. Did you ever read "The Giver" by Lois Lowry? This is marketed to teens, but it is enjoyable by all and very different -- it does not disappoint. (former middle school reading teacher)

  11. I follow your blog, cool prizes.

  17. I read a little of both. I was never really into sci-fi but the book that introduced me to sci-fi was The Host by Stephanie Meyer. It's a great read for those who aren't too sure about Sci-fi. I was in fact really surprised that Stephanie Meyer wrote a book like this because it's nothing like the Twilight series at all. I couldn't even say which one is better because they are both soooo different. They are both awesome in their own ways. The main character in The Host is someone you really like and come to understand. So if you haven't read this one I would definitely go for it.

    I used to read fantasy when I was a teen, there was a series of three books, but I can't recall the author or a title. If I do, I will write it here for you. I never could convince myself to sci-fi, I donno why.

    ReplyDelete
  20. a co do ksiazek s-f - to chyba nie jest moj konik, ale czytalam "Intruza" S.Meyer i mi sie podobalo wiec moze powinnam cos wiecej z tego gatunku poczytac? poczekam na podpowiedzi w komentarzach ;))

  30. a co do literatury - sf to raczej nie moja działka :p ale już fantasy... mrrr... ^^
    ulubieni autorzy - Pratchett, LeGuin, papcio Tolkien, Grzędowicz, Łukianienko... całe stadko :D

    a jeśli idzie o jakieś konkretne propozycje tytułów...
    Patrole ("Nocny Patrol", "Dzienny Patrol", "Patrol Zmierzchu", "Ostatni Patrol") Łukianienki (kocham miłością wielką :))
    Ziemiomorze LeGuin - dla mnie pozycja obowiązkowa i jedna z najlepszych książek jakie w ogóle czytałam :)
    "Pan Lodowego Ogrodu" Grzędowicza
    "Mgły Avalonu" Marion Zimmer Bradley (bardzo ważna dla mnie książka - ryczałam nad nią jak bóbr)
    "Amerykańscy Bogowie", "Gwiezdny Pył", "Nigdziebądź" Gaimana

    a tak bardziej "rozrywkowo" to może być na przykład
    "Wiedźma.com.pl" Białołęckiej
    "Zawód: Wiedźma" Olgi Gromyko
    "Nekromeron" Ugriumowów (ludzie się na mnie dziwnie patrzyli w autobusie, bo rechotałam przy tym jak szalona :P)
    "Podatek" Mileny Wojtowicz (jw., a jak się jeszcze mieszka w Lublinie... ta, wiem, patriotyzm lokalny mi się włącza :P)..

    oj, mogłabym tak podawać jeszcze długo... :D

  34. I used to read Isaac Asimov when I was a student but I discovered I preferred his mysteries to his sci-fi.

  35. I'm a follower and this is a sweet give away!!!

  36. I've read Isaac Asimov and thought his books were fascinating. I'm not a big fan of s-f but those were good.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lovely giveaway! (Do come visit mine too!) I read sci-fi/fantasy, though I'm not as up-to-date anymore (less reading time with two littleones, a fulltime job and all my sewing/crafty activities). I used to love books, many ones for teens, by: Margaret Mahy (esp. The Changeover), Robin McKinley (lots of different good ones), John Bellairs (House with the Clock in the Walls, etc.), Susan Cooper (the Dark is Rising series). More recently, and for "grown ups", I have enjoyed Susana Clark's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell. I also really love the novels of Haruki Murakami and also John Mitchell. They're not exactly sci-fi but they are avery surreal and play with time and mystery. Happy reading and thanks for the giveaway!

  41. S-F , nie, nigdy. Ale dam głowę, że spodobałaby Ci się książka Judy Budnitz "To wiem na pewno". Może nie S-F, ale pełna tajemnic, magii i czegoś, co ogólnie nazwałabym womanhood. Trudno dostać, bo niestety nakład wyczerpany :(

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't read fantasy or S-F. Sorry. During summer I hardly have time to read, but I do lovecriminalstories.Thanks for the lovely give away!

  45. Thank you for the giveaway! I recently read Matter by Iain M Banks, which I quite enjoyed. Also, if you like podcasts, check out Escape Pod - short sci-fi stories.

  46. Davis Eddings on the Fantasy side. He's my absolute favourite and the characters feel like my closest friends. I turn to them whenever I need comfort. Go and read the 'Belgariad' series. Brilliant. Also... David Gemmell. Another fabulous fantasy writer :)

    Brilliant giveaway xx

    ReplyDelete
  47. Aaargh...that should say David Eddings. Sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I guess I don't really read fantasy, as fantasy or sci-fi as I get is Twilight, sorry I know it is probably what you don't want to hear! HA

  49. I am a blog follower! I love your patterns!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ohhh my muse is just a dancin seeing all that lovely fabric and ribbon ^_^

    I love to read...I'm on a first name basis with most of the folks at our local library..LOL!! I love fantasy. I just finished a really great series by Kim Harrison. It's called "The Hollows". There are 9 books and each one just gets better and better. It's a series you will want to read in order to really enjoy them. If you like vampires, witches, faeries, pixies and gargoyles then you will LOVE these novels. Another really great fantasy writer is Christine Feehan...her "Dark Books" series are really good and you don't have to read them in order..each one stands alone very well on it's own. (of course I am trying to read them in order..LOL)

    I love seeing everything that you are up to and visit (quietly) often.

    HUGS

  51. Already a follower. I read sci-fi and fantasy. I loved the Harry Potter series. The details were so real. I also enjoyed the Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingr series. The last book in the series is due to come out this fall.Good luck finding a new read....yes, I'm 47 not 14 years old:)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Harry Potter, but I'm sure you have read those. Mists of Avalon is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I read very little outside of inspiration books and mags related to textile industry BUT when I do get to pleasure read, the last book I read was Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon mystery series. Love them! About a female park ranger...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Read the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness. It starts with The Knife of Never Letting Go, continues with The Ask and the Answer, and ends with Monsters of Men. It will lift you up and break your heart all at once. My 14 year old is reading them right now and I'm loving reliving it through his eyes. Also, The Mount by Carol Emshwiller is weird and really interesting. And one of my favorites from the past year is The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King. I guess that last one's not really SF, but it does have some fantastic elements. Sorry, I tend to go on about books!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I am currently reading an absolute classic that is Terry Pratchett Disc World. It's really an amazing new world that you get thrown into and it's curious and it's different and very often funny.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I read some SF, but mostly fantansy. Terry Pratchett is without a doubt my favourite author (in any genre) and is one of the few authors I'll reread over and over again. Thanks for the chance to win!

  66. Sci-fi/fantasy authors - Mercedes Lackey (I especially like her more recent retellings of fairy tales), Charles de Lint - urban fantasy, and I love everything he's written (although I have not read the horror stuff he wrote under another name), Neil Gaiman, of course!, Anne Bishop - I love *everything* of hers - she has three series, Patricia Briggs - love everything, but especially the Mercy Thompson series.

    What great giveaways! I love your foxes!

  68. Became a follower, as well.

    Also - Kelley Armstrong, which is more paranormal sci fi, probably? and I like Yasmin Galenorn, which they often classify in the paranormal romance section, so if that's not your thing, steer clear. :)

Wonderful website - my friend says it is facebook for readers. haha You connect with friends and share your reviews of books you have read.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Oh gosh, I do read fantasy/sci-fi, but can't really recommend anyone at the moment. Been extremely disappointed by the last couple that I read. One of those was Laurel K. Hamilton. Such promise, but so little actual story. Sad, but true. The best book that I've read lately is The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie, and believe it or not, it has an alternate reality feel to it. So beautiful that I don't even feel adequate to write a book review. Tom Robbins, with his Still Life with Woodpecker is another quirky alternate reality type book, but I'm not sure how I would classify either of these books. Maybe not your usual reads, but definitely entertaining . . .

    ReplyDelete
  123. And I forgot to mention, I'm already a follower. Good luck on finding some good reads!

  124. Right now I'm reading the Harry Dresden series by Jim Butcher. I do read quite a bit of this kind of book. Good luck with your search. You can also go to Amazon and search a book you liked, they will tell you other books that people are reading.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I am sorry to say but I like historical fictions the best. And some would say--history!--but I love it. As far as fantasy- I work in an elementary school and the 10-11 yr olds kids love Fabelhaven. Thanks for sharing!

  141. I do read fantasy/scifi, my favorite author/series is David Weber's Honor Harrington series. A female space captain ... and the space battles/weapons follow the laws of physics! Finally! LOL

    I would also offer up Spacetrawler - a webcomic. It's a great read! Link to the first strip: http://spacetrawler.com/2010/01/01/spacetrawler-4/

  149. Hello,
    I am not sure if Dean Koontz falls into the genre of books you are looking for-kind of mystery/sci fi. I really like him.

  151. Hi there...I don't really read SF or fantasy--my husband certainly does--but I have read classic SF such as Philip K. Dick and Robert Heinlein. A book I loved-historical fiction, not SF--recently is David Mitchell's The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet (his Cloud Atlas is A-Mazing, too). Thanks for the fun giveaway. I'm having a giveaway of vintage sewing stuff on my blog, Foziewisp. Please stop by if you're interested. Thanks so much!

  158. Mike Resnick - I love his unpredictable endings
    Currently reading the Septimus Heap series on my kindle, but the rest, while readable, weren't the page-turners that number 1 was.

  160. I am really not into fantasy or science fiction books. The only ones I read that come close to that topic are "Northern Lights", "The subtle knife" and "The Amber spyglass" of Phillip Pullmann's "His Dark Materials" trilogy and I enjoyed reading them.

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  161. Thanks for the chance with your giveaway. Other then reading all the star trek paperbacks I'm not really into reading fantasy. The closest I come would be Jack Whyte (love his books!!) but I don't know if he fits that genre. I'm mostly a mystery/suspense kind of girl.

    ReplyDelete
  162. I went through a fantasy phase about 10 years ago (am I that old?). My favourite was Magician by Raymond E Feist.

  163. I love to read and my favorite author is laurel Hamilton. Some may not see her as a fantasy writer but I enjoy her work.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Najbardziej lubię klasykę czyli Tolkiena. Ale baaardzo polecam Guya Gavriela Kaya - zwłaszcza "Tiganę" i "Pożeglować do Sarancjum". A najnowsze moje odkrycie to Brandon Sanderson. czytałam "Elantris" (świetna) i jestem w trakcie trylogii "Z mgły zrodzony"

  166. As a teenager, I was a big fan of David Eddings' books as well as Tolkein's Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

    My husband has introduced me to Terry Brooks' fantasy books, and they are not bad either, although a bit overly melodramatic, LOL.

  172. First, I have to say that I adore your fox ribbon. It's too cool.
    Second, I'm not a regular sci-fi reader. I really only read Neil Gaiman novels/short stories, and I know he may be a little more on the horror side.

  183. I read both, fantasy and s-f.

    For fantasy I also really recommended the series "song of ice and fire" from George R.R. Martin. He really creates a beliveable society where you won't find black and white stereotype but all the greyscales humanity is capable of. Also the next book is just to be published! :)

    The best sf I read in the last time was "Babylon Babies" from Maurice Dantec.

    But maybe just say what kind of sf and fantasy you like :)

    ReplyDelete
  184. My 2 favorite sci-fi authors are Spider Robinson and Robert Heinlein. I also really like Sheri S. Tepper, esp The Gate To Women's Country. I also recommend The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell, Sharon Shinn's Samaria series and Suzette Haden Elgin's Native Tongue series. I hope you find something in there that sounds good! :)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  190. Good topic for comments! For fantasy books I enjoy Charles de Lint. My favorite by him is Moonheart -- I've worn out a couple of paperback copies of that one.

    For hardcore science fiction, I like the Red Mars/Blue Mars/Green Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. That's a series I'll keep forever.

    Thanks for participating in the giveaway! Great prizes, by the way.
