Fallen by Evanescence (Music on CD)
Eragon by Christopher Paolini (Book)
(Alternative Rock.) I love the music of Evanescence, if you could get any of their albums, I would love it. Reviewed by SGL.(Fantasy fiction and part of The Inheritance Cycle series.) I love fantasy of any kind, as well as dragons. These are probably my favorite books, the story really draws you in. Reviewed by SGL.
Throne of Glassby Sarah J. Maas (Book)
(Fantasy fiction.) When I like a book, it gets finished quickly. I finished the first two books of the series (total of 822 pages) in one day. Reviewed by SGL.
