My darlings! I am sure you are not all internet hermits like me...so may I ask a favour? can you recommend any good books for me to read? I have only read a handful in my life....sadly.

I love supernatural/none supernatural horror, or medieval historical/ medieval fantasy or demony-middle earth type books. Also quite keen on zombie apocalypse/ pandemic survival style too. If you know any that fit into these categories I would be grateful if you could share?

If you know a really really good book that doesn't fit into any of these? I would still be interested in having a look at it.

I am sad..I read a book on my Japan trip and I can't remember the name :iconcryforeverplz:. Its about a boy who could shape shift and use magic, I think his name was Tern and there was a story in the book about him rescuing a girl enslaved by a wizard who was obsessed with quicksilver? if you know the name of this book I will love you forever and ever. The book pretty much covers his life from birth to death.

Edit* oh god I found out what book it was! it was Tales of Earthsea...damn I loved that book...I confused the guys name? it was Otter not Tern :iconotlplz:

Books/short stories I really ended up enjoying...

The Langoliers - Steven King
The Man in the Black Suit - Steven King
Autopsy Room Four - Steven King
Slaughterboy - Odo Kirsch
Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
Tales of Earthsea - Ursula Le Guin  
The Garbage King - someone?
1984 - George Orwell

Books on my to read list so far;
Pillars of the Earth
The Hunger Games
The Road
The Stand
Everthing ever written by Steven King ( specially IT...gotta read that one...='D)

There is also a movie called Tales of Earthsea. It's based on the book of Tales of Earthsea.
By studio Ghibli: [link]

Um, Zombie is a pretty good book. It's supposed to be a scientist journal that he keeps through the Zombie Apocalypse, and it has drawings to go with the entries. It's pretty cool.
I'm currently reading a book called The Thief and it's set in medieval times.
There's also The Dark is Rising, which fits into the magic-ish category.
Hope I helped! C:

Wait a sec, the zombie book is actually called Zombies, A Record Of The Year Of Infection.

The Chaos Walking trilogy is a great series of books.
If you like tongue-in-cheek humour and Stephen King then you might want to look at John Dies at the End. It's... Odd to say the least, but I found it was really good. :3
Also, if you like Star Wars and if you like zombies DEFINITELY read Death Troopers.

I don't know if they would suit your tastes, but any book by Brandon Sanderson is pretty amazing!
I suggest the Mistborn Trilogy or Way of Kings , but Elantris and War Breaker are awesome too!

Isn't part of any of those categories, but I really liked Khaled Housseini's "The Kite Runner" :cries: :hug:

There's this series called "The Enemy". It's a bit strange, but has a interesting take on zombies.

Hell yes, sounds nice! (I accept recommendations too by the way, just in case ;3)
You should definitely start on the dark tower series from King. They are awesome, 7 books of them.
The Hunger Games are great as well, though until now I only read the first part.

Maybe you'd like The Gemma Doyle Trilogy, the setting is fabulous to me~
I also recommend The Stravaganza Series, set in a fictional Italy in ancient times! Loved that one!
