    Finished the Red Queens War trilogy (part of Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence) very very good.

    Now starting the final (for now) trilogy of Shannara.

    I am reading the last book in the Fitz and the Fool series by Robin Hobb. I like what I am reading so far ^^

    Having a re-read of Ender's Game, great sci-fi.

    omg The Scarlet Pimpernel is one of my favorite books! I read it years and years ago, and I literally JUST found out a few days ago that it has SEQUELS. MULTIPLE SEQUELS. Idk if they are any good yet, but I am excited!! :)

    Currently reading: The Queen's Poisoner by Jeff Wheeler (random pick from a library shelf), When Gravity Fails by George Alec Effinger

    Reading next: everything listed in this thread that I haven't heard of before... lol.

    (Edited to include quote... my forum skillz are rusty :))

    All The Missing Girls ended up pretty good. I didn't like the backwards timeline at first, but in the end it made sense.

    Currently reading Careless People: Mirder, Mayhem, and the Invention of The Great Gatsby, by Sarah Churchwell. It's a creative nonfiction biography thing about the double murder that influenced F. Scott Fitzgerald to write The Great Gatsby. I also am pretty sure that whoever came up for the idea for Columbo had also studied F. Scott Fitzgerald's intentions whilst writing it.

    Kind of late to the game, but I just read Ender's Game for the first time. Now I need to see the movie again. My sis tells me after reading the book, the movie pales in comparison.

    Absolutely! The film has very little of the book in it. Ender's Shadow is better, the same events seen from somebody else's eyes, lots of detail and intrigue from the first book are covered in interesting detail.

    Just started Robert Jackson Bennett's City of Miracles. Probably the book I've looked forward to the most this year. Here's to hoping that it's as amazing as the previous two in the trilogy. (I have a hard time imagining otherwise.)

    I checked out Scions of Shannara from the library again. Got about a third of the way through it before garage time took over earlier in the year. Then I forgot all but the main points (running from bad guys, main characters looking for another guy along with expendable character, etc.) so the plan was to start from the beginning.

    I'm reading one of the In Nomine RPing books, currently the Liber Canticorum, and enjoying it a ton.

    I'm reading Kameron Hurley's Geek Feminist Revolution and OMG so good. There's so much underlining going on.

    I'm reading/listening to Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, and just finished re-reading CJ Cherryh's The Pride of Chanur, on of my favorite sci-fi books.

    Oh! I adore the Chanur books! I'm currently re-reading Patricia Wrede's Lyra novels, but when I'm done I'm going to have a Chanur fest.

    I'm reading A Line Made by Walking by Sara Baume. It's about a woman with depression who goes to her (dead) grandmother's house to live and heal, and ends up getting back into photography.

    I've only ever read the first one, but have the next book (Chanur's Venture) and I think that I'm going to continue. Pride ends so nicely that I almost want to walk away and keep that thought, but this time I'm for pressing on, I think.

    I am reading an old biography of Baden-Powell, the war hero and founder of the Scout Foundation. So far, I really like it :) I am not usually a big fan of biographies, but this one is well written and is about a person whom I admire very much, and stood for a lot of good things :)
