    Just finished the Mistborn trilogy. It was a nice ending, but either Brandon Sanderson had little skill when it comes to big reveals, or I'm just a genius. I saw pretty much everything coming well in advance of it actually happening for both the second and third books. I'm glad he's done so much better for both Way of Kings and his work on the WoT series. I am interested in checking out the Elantris series, but for now I'm on to Dune.

    I just started The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. Been meaning to read her for ages, since more than one of my friends recommend her. Also reading History of Finland by Henrik Meinander.

    I just read the most hilarious little book :p The A-Z of living together by Jeff Green. Very amusing, especially for someone who just moved in with her fiancé a few weeks ago!

    Parallel with re-reading The Fires Of Heaven, I'm reading Priest-Kings of Gor by John Norman.

    Ah, the Gor books. The most sexist works of fiction ever written XD

    I have just found a fun, if not overly well written book called A Knight in Central Park. It's playful, I think would be the best description. I may have to pick up the A-Z of living together- it sounds funny!

    I'm reading Goodkind's The Omen Machine. It was alright until he ruined the plot by kinda spoiling who's behind all the trouble >_>

    Such a great series. The Crippled God (the final book in the series) has SUCH a big emotional payoff.

    Good choise! I loved Morgan a couple of years ago when I read all the Kovacs novels and Market Forces. I must admit that I've since given up on him since I don't enjoy the unrelenting grimness of his style any more. I want happy or hopeful endings these days.

    I'm always looking for good cyberpunk, ever since I first picked up a copy of Neuromancer I don't even know how many years ago.
