    I'm reading 'The shadow of what was lost' by James Islington. Apparently he is inspired by Jordan and Sanderson and I can definitely see it. It's a pretty good read.

    I really like these books. The last one comes out in December, I think.

    I am reading... The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner, Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal (hey my name!), A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, and Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. Why do I start so many books at one time? :|

    I'm reading Worm, a web series about people with super powers. Really well-written, really good action, nice characters, story, etc. Surprisingly good, considering the author wrote 1.6 million words in 2 years.

    Almost done with it now. If you want superhero/supervillain stuff in prose, I really recommend it. I managed to get it converted to an ebook for easier reading.

    I just picked up Among Others by Jo Walton. It won a Hugo award, so I was intrigued. So far it's very dark. But not in like a gritty edgy kind of Game of Thrones way. More in a grim, sad Jane Eyre way. It's formatted like a diary and contains so many references to other books that I might just build a reading list before I'm done with it.

    Oh, I loved Among Others! :joy It definitely added a lot of books to my to-read list. I also listened to the audiobook and the narrator did an amazing job. I really felt a connection with the main character.

    I started a new series today, Lightbringer by Brent Weeks... the first three books arrived today, new for $6 each. :)

    I plan to read the Licanius Trilogy after this one... maybe I should reverse that??!?! Now I don't know what to do... :giggle

    I am listening to Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I am really enjoying it so far, and I like Will Patton's narration.

    I am reading The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. I am enjoying this immensely.
