I betook myself to a stray newspaper in despair. Having carefully perused the column of "houses to let," and the column of "dogs lost," and then the two columns of "wives and apprentices runaway," I attacked with great resolution the editorial matter, and, reading it from beginning to end without understanding a syllable, conceived the possibility of its being Chinese, and so re-read it from the end to the beginning, but with no more satisfactory result.

Your age and appearance has nothing to do with your capacity to enjoy books from multiple genres.

What type of book do you normally like reading?

It was a joke lol

I like fantasy mostly
Good choice! Have you read any Terry Pratchett?

She's 19 though, not 40. He is wordy... you get bored a bit, I have found.

I would say Terry Brooks, Shannara series.

OR - I would actually recommend this series before the Shannara one:

David Farland - The Runelords

Quote:
The Runelords is a series of fantasy novels by American author David Farland of which the first part was published in 1998. In the universe of The Runelords, there exists a unique magical system which relies on the existence of distinct bodily attributes, such as brawn, grace, and wit. These attributes can be transferred from one individual (or animal) to another in a process known as "giving an endowment". Lords who have taken many endowments become extremely powerful, almost superhuman, and are known as Runelords.
Thoroughly enjoyed this series and found it engaging

and the people who the Lord has taken endowments from, are basically inept from losing their grace, wit, etc.

So there is a arena full of people that he has taken attributes from, who he takes care of. they are his hosts. They live on life support, for his cause. It's weird.

anywhoodle, Kami, you should check out The Runelords.

or at least keep it in your mind, the next time, if you are ever looking for a fantasy series to start.

out of curiosity, what perchance inspired you to look upon such material as wives and their apprentices running askew?
I am not more certain that I breathe, than that the assurance of the wrong or error of any action is often the one unconquerable force which impels us, and alone impels us to its prosecution. Nor will this overwhelming tendency to do wrong for the wrong's sake, admit of analysis, or resolution into ulterior elements. It is a radical, a primitive impulse—elementary. It will be said, I am aware, that when we persist in acts because we feel we should not persist in them, our conduct is but a modification of that which ordinarily springs from the combativeness of phrenology.

We stand upon the brink of a precipice. We peer into the abyss -- we grow sick and dizzy. Our first impulse is to shrink from the danger. Unaccountably we remain. By slow degrees our sickness and dizziness and horror become merged in a cloud of unnamable feeling. By gradations, still more imperceptible, this cloud assumes shape, as did the vapor from the bottle out of which arose the genius in the Arabian Nights.
