    I agree, The Revenge of the Shadow King is a good fictional book. Same with The Immortal Instruments.Some of these I've never read yet...but thanks, I think I know which books to read next. But I kinda think Eragon should be placed highher, otherwise. It's all good. Read from 1 to 106. A good challenge.
