Must not be part of a series... Only singular books...
Fantasy genre...

What i like:
Witches
Wizards
Magick
Angels
Demons
and the like......


My sister wants a list of books i might like to buy me one for my birthday, trouble is all the books i want are part of a series, and she can't afford to buy me an entire series, so....
Would really appreciate some suggestions.


Currently i'm reading "The Name of the Wind" and it's excellent, but then again, it's also part of a series...
I also like more juvenile readings, such as cassandra clares work, etc

Those are both part of a series.... I need books that are singular, not part of a series :/

ASoIaF, Harry Potter and Wheel of Time respectfully are the prime 3, followed closely by Hobbit/LotR and the Dune Series. All series but you don't need to get them all at once, you can start them and pick the rest up later if you enjoy the first in the series. You're going to limit yourself greatly if you don't, as the best books in fantasy tend to have more than one.

I personally am going to pick up a "Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" for Christmas, as I've only watched YT vids for it. Now that they're going to do a HBO GoT spin-off, so I hear, I'm going to get off my ass for it since I've enjoyed the overview vids, and have been reading ASoIaF since '02-'03 or so, though I haven't actually read it so I cant recommend the book in good conscience.

If you've read all of these series already then I'm extremely impressed as most people haven't that sport Naruto Sigs, based on age alone, not trying to knock the show or people that enjoy it mind you.
