J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Jordan, Raymond E. Feist, Terry Pratchett, Brian Aldiss, Frank Herbert, Michael Moorcock.

TBH I'm more into sci fi, but do read fantasy too, though my knowledge of the genre isn't anywhere near as extensive as yours.

My favourite trilogy is the Helliconia trilogy by Brian Aldiss.

@Miss Chief You've forgotten Christopher Paolini. The tetralogy The Legacy is so captivating !

And do you know Piers Anthony ? He has written Xanth series. I loved the first book. I'm reading the second one.

@Nesf I have to be honest I am not a big Tolkien fan, I like the Hobbit but found LotR very slow going, I have read Jordan's WoT but as with most long series it had some slow books, I do really like Feist but again it did go on a bit in places (my favourites are probably the trilogy he did with Janny Wurts) I do like Pratchett a lot, if you are familiar with any of my list you will know I like my books quite dark so Pratchett is always a nice light change of pace, I have Aldiss' Helliconia trilogy in my too read pile, I've never read Herbert and I love Moorcock but he fits right into my love of dark and grim stuff :)

@Tylermc I was a bit old for J. K. Rowling by the time she came along and I don't tend to go for the books aimed at younger audience now, I have tried a few times but just can't get into it. I do love Martin's SoIaF/GoT though :)

Again being as I was a girl I was always pushed away from comics growing up (they were considered a boy thing when I was young) so I only really got into them as a grown up and tend to be more inclined towards adult ones like Preacher and V for Vendetta type thing, I kind of missed the whole Marvel and DC thing, although I am definitely more in the Marvel camp rather than the DC camp if you have to pick one over the other ;)

@Joie6 I do have Paolini's Inheritance Cycle to read although I have to be honest it doesn't appeal so much, again it feels like it is aimed at a younger audience which is really not my thing but I do keep getting him recommended so he is still in my to be read pile, I haven't read Piers Anthony either but I will add him to be recommendation list thank you :)
