the inheritance cycle series

warsayan  asked:

5. a book series you would recommend?

A book series I would recommend… hmm…

If I had to choose just one, I would definitely say the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini.

I cannot recommend this series enough. I’m a tad biased toward fantasy novels, but these books are honestly so engaging and incredibly diverse. The story is told through several points of view, especially beginning in the second novel, so you can get a variety of experiences. It deals with heavy topics from prejudices, to religion, to power/corruption, to the mysteries of love. Even the most minor of characters are fleshed enough that they are completely believable each with their own motivations and plot arcs that may not even be realized until several novels in.

Yes, I know they’re pretty thick books, but in my opinion, they’re totally worth it.

The Inheritance Cycle: A Summary

Eragon

Brom: Eragon, just listen to what I tell you. 

Eragon: No! I do what I want!

Saphira: Why did I chose this kid again?

Eldest 

Eragon: Aryaaaa! I love you! Look I’m in chronic pain all the time and I distract myself from the agony by staring at you, you’re so pretty why won’t you love me?!

Oromis: Eragon, focus. 

Eragon: BUT ARYAAAA

Brisingr 

Eragon: I have to make important decisions now. Saphira helllllp

Saphira: Hang on, I’m busy killing things and admiring myself. Look, my scales sparkle!

Inheritance 

Eragon: Who am I? What am I? What is my purpose? ahhhh

Glaedr: figure it out yourself, kid. 

Murtagh: And FINALLY we get to hear about what i’ve been up to all this time! 

The Inheritance cycle should be huge.

Im so angry with whoever produced the eragon movie, cause the inheritance cycle (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance) deserves to be as well known as LoTR, GoT, Harry Potter, Hunger games and all the rest (it’s a shame that for something to be popular in the modern world its has to be a movie/tv show). The characters are amazing, the plot has so many twists and details and Christopher Paolini is a genius. Can somebody PLEASE make Peter Jackson aware of this amazing series?

The Inheritance Cycle series tells the story of a young farm boy named Eragon, who finds a mysterious stone in the mountains. A dragon he later names Saphira hatches from the stone, which was really an egg. When the evil King Galbatorix finds out about Eragon and his dragon, he sends his servants, the Ra’zac, after them in an effort to capture them. Eragon and Saphira are forced to flee from their hometown, and decide to search for the Varden, a group of rebels who want to see the downfall of Galbatorix.

“Books should go where they will be most appreciated, and not sit unread, gathering dust on a forgotten shelf, don’t you agree?” Christopher Paolini

Book Series Recs!

Inheritance Cycle:

A 15-year-old boy named Eragon finds a dragon egg while hunting to feed his family for the winter. When the egg hatches, he becomes a Dragon Rider, and has to team up with a whole bunch of ass-kicking characters, most of whom are female, to overthrow the tyrant Galbatorix


Artemis Fowl: A 12-year-old genius kidnaps a fairy in order to steal fairy gold. He plans to use the gold to pay for expeditions to find his father, who had gone missing. Unfortunately, these faries are DANGEROUS, and the girl he kidnapped didn’t get her rank as the first female Captain as a joke

A Series of Unfortunate Events: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire lose their parents in a tragic fire, leaving them with a massive fortune that can’t be touched until Violet turns eighteen. However, their greedy relative, Count Olaf, doesn’t feel like waiting that long, and will use any means necessary to get his hands on the childrens’ money.

Graceling: Kasta is a girl with an unusual ability; she has the power to kill, and do so effectively. Her uncle, King Randa, uses her to do his dirty work. When Kasta finally works up the courage to defy him, she flees the kingdom with a friend, and finds that her Grace (special ability), was not what she thought it to be. [Seriously, this book is SUPER feminist you’ll love it]

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: When Earth is destroyed to make way for a Hyperspace Bypass, Arthur Dent is the lone survivor. Now, Arthur must navigate through the Galaxy, accompanied by a strange group that includes a clinically depressed robot, the President of the Galaxy, and a face from Arthur’s past. Now, what does the number 42 have to do with any of this?

Percy Jackson and the Olympians/The Heroes of Olympus: Half-Bloods, or Demigods, are the children of Gods and Mortals. They attract monsters, often suffer ADHD, dyslexia, or both, and are usually ignored by their godly parent. However, when the fate of the world hangs in the balance, it’s up to them to save it.

The Kane Chronicles: Carter and Sadie Kane are nothing alike. Carter has his father’s dark skin, lives out of a suitcase, and dresses like a junior professor, while Sadie has pale skin, lives in London, and only sees her brother and her father twice a year. When they go on a museum trip with their father, their lives change forever.

The Spiderwick Chronicles: When the Grace children, Mallory, Simon, and Jared, move into the Spiderwick estate, they discover a guidebook to the various kinds of faeries. A Brownie named Thimbletack warns them that the book is dangerous, and should be destroyed. Spoiler alert: they don’t

This is my Haul for the last 6 months, and 6 of these were borrowed/gifted. Looks like I actually kept to my book buying ban a little bit more this year! Although after I post this I am sure I will remember a few more. 

I got the 6 in the first pic from Bookfest! this year, the next 3 from daneoff to borrow. The bottom left were passed on to me from the thebooker (THANK YOU!) and the last picture completes my Series of Unfortunate Events collection.
