Okay so were moving into the new house at the end of February, I'm soo excited! But, guess what the best part is? I'm finally finally getting my own library. I've always wanted one but we've never had the space. But now I've got a problem, I just bought 9 feet of floor to ceiling shelves plus 2 smaller bookcases, now what the heck am I going to fill them with?

That's where you guys come in. HELP!
What would you guys reccomend? and if you could write a few sentences about why I should read it or what it's about that would be great too.

I like fantasy books or anything magical, books about orphans especially in orphanges, twins, time travel, royalty, espionage, pirates, fairytales, wishes, genies.

Some of my favorites are: Harry Potter series (obviously), White Oleander by Janet Fitch, Tricksters Choice by Tamora Pierce, Hitchhikers Guide series by Douglas Addams, Running out of Time by... I forgot. Just to name a few... very few.

Okay, I've got a few reccs for you. First of all, get anything and everything you can get your hands on by Raymond E. Feist. Then, get "The Curse of Chalion," and "Palidin of Souls," by Lois McMaster Bujold. Then, get the following fibe books. "Dreams Made Flesh," "The Invisible Ring," "Daughter of the Blood," "Heir to the Shadows," and "Queen of the Darkness," by Anne Bishop.

That about covers it for me. Enjoy! And I guarantee that you'll have filled up half a shelf with these books alone. :D

The Kushiel Series by Jacqueline Carey -- There is a lot of sex in these books that rides the line between hard R and soft NC-17 but deals a lot with royalty. Try the first book out and if you don't like it, you probably won't like the rest.

The Wraeththu Series by Storm Constantine -- The next step in human evolution comes in the form of Wraethtu -- hermaphroditic spiritual men. Really, just try it. Sex magic.

The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop.
