NB: I'm using the Goodreads rating system, which goes like this:
1/5: I didn't like it
2/5: It was okay
3/5: I liked it
4/5: I really liked it
5/5: It was amazing

 
NB: I'm going to be more harsh with my rating this year, and I'm going to try and refrain from giving 5/5 to all great books, and reserve the highest rating for books that are great as well as recommendable, books that I will definitely want to re-read in the future and that I want to own a copy of.

~~ Steve's Favourite Fiction - Challenge ~~

The Malazan Book of the Fallen - Steven Erikson - my favourite fantasy series. I've banged the drum about it quite enough by now. It's like Marmite. Seven out of the ten books in the series are right at the top of my list: Gardens of the Moon / Deadhouse Gates / Memories of Ice / House of Chains / Midnight Tides / The Bonehunters / Toll the Hounds.

The Belgariad - David Eddings - this was the series that introduced me to the fantasy genre. I loved it when I was 14 or 15. Not sure how I'd feel about it if I read it again now, but I have to include it here.
