So, here's what I like.
What books would you recommend?
I'm trying to read more classics. I also enjoy Neil Gaiman, Jasper Fforde, Douglas Adams, Ben Elton, Isobelle Carmody and Terry Pratchett as authors (no particular order there). Someone who writes in those sorts of styles would be good (not by these particular authors because I've read them already).
I enjoy sci fi and fantasy, and also comedy. I dislike most chick lit, though some is okay. I don't like things that are too sad or scary. Silly comedy such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and the Pirates! books are great. :p
I enjoy historical things too. Particularly social history, and if it's fiction, not about a famous person.
