I have read the Harry Potter series and am halfway through the Lord of The Rings. I have also read the Inheritance series, loved the first few books and the world but found many characters quite boring and couldn't complete the last book, often skipping chapters in between.

I would love to start a new series with more swordplay than magic, a good world and please no adult scenes...

Wheel Of Time.

A Song Of Ice and... Wait you said no adult scenes. So that's that one out.

I don't think the Kingkiller series has adult stuff. Name of the Wind was great. I need the second one.

Wheel of Time, I guess. I'd rec A Song of Ice and Fire but you said no adult scenes. IMO that's a shitty trade-off because A Song of Ice and Fire is really ****ing good and it fits your other criteria perfectly.

Yea, ASOIAF is pretty awesome but has some cringey sexual scenes

The first two books were good but I thought the third was a letdown. I always forget that I've read them.
#13
I read them a long long time ago (well before the movie), so I don't remember at all.

I remember liking Artemis Fowl books also. They were cool and appropriate for 12 year old me.

David Gemmell has a bunch of fantasy series which are all fairly swordplay-oriented, but a few of his books have awkward-ass sex scenes. Only the occasional one though.

The Belgariad. It's criminally underrated, I personally think it belongs up there with Lord of The Rings in terms of fame. Harry Potter's pretty decent (more for younger readers), I read all the books, but if you lean more towards LOTR then you'll love the Belgariad.

Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen Donaldson.

IMO, the best fantasy books out there (although I haven't read everything).

Okay I will try the Wheel of Time and Dark Tower series. I know that A Song of Ice and Fire is supposed to be really good, but... you know...

Has anyone read The Sword of Truth series? Did you like it?

And those of you who recommended Fifty Shades of Grey are real scumbags xD I didn't mean that fantasy...

Yes. This.

I'd love to recommend some of the Micheal Moorecock stuff. Especially the History of the Runesword. He's terrible with characters but I love his world building.

Also the Eternal Champion novels are worth reading.

And the Narnia series if you haven't already.

It's Martin's description of Sam's dick the first time he has sex with Gilly. You probably repressed it.

Also, Pratchett's Discworld if you want a light-hearted take on the genre that's also an excellent read.

It's fairly okay I think, its a quite long series if I remember correctly? Like almost 20 books or something..the book series are way better than the tv-series though.

Series I really enjoyed were The lies of Locke Lamora, theyre quite thick and I havent read the third book yet (dont even know if its written yet tbh) and Anything by Robin Hobb. You should definitely look into The Farseer Trilogy by her. I saw someone mention The Dark Tower series by Stephen King aswell, they're also very good. It's funny if you've read some other Stephen King books because some characters make appearances ^^

First book is incredible but I didn't enjoy the next two nearly as much. Had some really cool concept but just weren't as enjoyable. Maybe I'll read them again one day.

I'd recommend Wheel of Time. It's a long series with a lot of flaws and I'm only on book 4 but I'm compelled to keep reading for some reason.

The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb. Then the Liveship Traders, the Tawny Man and the Rain Wilds. Best series I have ever read.

i remembered them being fantastic, but that was when i was like 6th and 7th grade. can't even remember any of the plotline

the inheritance series i think is all right. eragon's a pretty exciting read, but the rest after do have some really long and unexciting passages as far as the politics of the story go. also blah blah ripped off star wars and lotr blah blah

My favourite line wasn't even sexual it was just giving a description of Reek and it's like "Your lips look like two worms fucking."

Narnia's books are excellent. Great for kids too. Golden Compass books also good for young readers. The Hungergames books? I found the writing got better with each book.

The Discworld series is a good read though my friends recommended me to start at the later books as they are the finer ones.
Edit: The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, although the two above are "sci-fi" they are good reads.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

Apparently this series is amazing. Been meaning to read them but I think I'll be reading Wheel of Time for the next 20 years of my life.
