First let me highly encourage you to go out and get the third book in NY Times Best Selling Author, Brandon Mull's Fablehaven YA fantasy series. I seriously believe this may be one of the most enjoyable series since HP. I got a chance to get an early copy, but it's on sale everywhere today, and it totally rocks! Fablehaven 3 Grip of the Shadow Plague
Another day, another round completed. Today I’m ending things just a little early as I’m on a business trip in Michigan, (Can you believe 70+ degrees? That’s like 25 degrees warmer than Utah today. Shirt sleeve weather!) so I’m ending just a little early to hit the hay. No ties today. The winners are clear:
His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman and Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin tie for first with seven votes each.
Dresden Files by Jim Butcher with six votes
Tales of Alvin Maker by Orson Scott Card with five votes
And Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis with four votes
Maybe the biggest surprise is that Inheritance didn’t make the cut. Does that say something about plot, writing, movie, or all three?
In response to anon's comment about Ice and Fire, (which I haven't read yet. so I can't comment on it) unlike movies, there are no ratings on books. So, I would recommend you do a little research before reading any book or series. With the number of reviews available online these days, there's no need to read something you are uncomfortable with without knowing in advance that the type of novel may not be your style. Different people have differnt tastes.
So on to Round 4. Should be a couple of familiar names in this round.
On a totally unrelated note, can I just say I am so pumped for the Speed Racer movie? I know that says a lot about my geekdom and age. But I grew up with the Mach 5, and it looks like they did a great job with the movie. Yes!
