my 13 year old is reading Discworld and has finished Mort, Gaurds gaurds and is reading Men at arms. What books to get her next? I know you don't need to read them in order but don't know what to get.
I am really pleased that she likes them and wants to read some more of the discworld novels but I have not read them myself so don't have a clue. Any recommendations greatly received.

If she likes the Watch, then Feet of Clay would be next though another slightly later in actual order is Night Watch which is very good

Those are the 3 I've read. And Soul Music but i found that and Feet of Clay less enjoyable than Mort and guards, guards.

The Witches ones grin
Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad, Lords and Ladies and Carpe Jugulum. (In that order) - the Witches also feature in the "Tiffany Aching" quartet, which although TP says is aimed at younger readers rather than adults, I love just as much as all the rest of the Discworld books. They are "The Wee Free Men" "A Hat Full of Sky" "Wintersmith" and "I Shall Wear Midnight"
The The Hogfather is brilliant, and also features Death and Susan.
Going Postal, Making Money, and Raising Steam all have Moist von Lipwig as the main character, and the Watch and Lord Vetinari pop up in them too grin
Thud! and Snuff have Sam Vimes, but are much a bit darker than the others - the biting observational wit is there, but the issues are much deeper, and not so "hilarious" - it's difficult to explain, but they are a bit harder going and more thought provoking than the others are.

That's exactly what I was going to link to.

And they're not children's books, by the way. They're not gratuitous but they are adult fiction.

One of my all time favourites is "Equal Rites" - I think it was the fourth one in the series. Great, strong female lead character too smile
