Well...Short story series by Stephan King, Dream Thief by Stephan Lawhead, most Sci-Fi short stories, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy! Salmon of Doubt and Mostly Harmless, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency & Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul - DNA, The Walking Drum and Guns of the Timberlands (inspiration for my barn name) by Louie L'Amour, and what collection wouldn't be complete without the many series of Ben Bova.

I'm going to try to stay away from naming obvious answers, such as The Chronicles of Narnia or the Lord of the Rings, and instead list wonderful authors/series/books that I would strongly recommend you all take a look at!

CS Lewis' The Space Trilogy is so overlooked, although it does for Science Fiction what Narnia does for Fantasy. It is an incredible series to read as a child, as the books are short, and even better as an adult, when you can fully understand the depth of Lewis' stories and metaphors. His book Till We Have Faces is also excellent.

Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman are incredible fantasy book writers. Together, they've wrote dozens upon dozens of incredible reads such as the Dragonlance Chronicles, The Lost Chronicles, Dragons, Tales of the Fifth Age, The War of Souls, The Darksword Trilogy, etc. They have so many fantastic series and are wonderful people, I always recommend fantasy enthusiasts read their works.

Another excellent fantasy series that isn't too well known and could be enjoyed by children and adults alike is The Edge Chronicles by Chris Riddell and Paul Stewart. I cannot recommend this series enough!

And of course, there's the Redwall series by Brian Jacques. I honestly believe this is a book series everyone should read at some point in their life.

I'm also a huge fan of westerns, both movies and books, and Louis L'Amour is by far the best of the best. I've read every book he's written, and the ones that I'd recommend most are: Utah Blaine, The Lonely Men, The Tall Stranger, To The Far Blue Mountains, Lonely on the Mountain, Last Stand at Papago Wells, The Cherokee Trail, The Broken Gun, The Iron Marshall, Mustang Man, Sackett, and Riders of Lost Creek. I know that's a really long list, but all of his books are excellent!

I can't believe that I don't already see it mentioned!

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

One of her less popular books (I actually love them all) It is a cross between a fantasy book and a horse book. I highly recommend for any fantasy lovers, or teens/young adults looking for age appropriate horsey books!
