Discussion in 'Non-WOT - Literature and Fiction' started by Toral Delvar, May 10, 2010.
The title says it all
Right now I am reading "Warbreaker" by Brandon Sanderson, and a mystery book that I can't recall the title. I tend to have a few books going at any given time!
I just finished Empire of Ivory by Naomi Novik. Moving on to Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay.
I have three or four non fiction books I am in the middle of, but only one fiction at the moment, a Sookie book, though I intend to start Lawhead's Dragonking trilogy soon
Reading "The key to Rebecka" by Ken Follett, my new hero.
Finally finishing Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman. I've been on a Gaiman kick recently <3
Currently re-reading The Divine Comedy (about halfway through Paradiso), and afterwards will be starting Mark Danielewski's bizarre House of Leaves.
re-reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman, after this I will read Anansi Boys, and Neverwhere. Guess I am on a Neil Gaiman kick too.
To continue the Gaiman theme... I'm reading Good Omens as my fantasy book at the moment.
And Warriors by Jack Ludlow as my historical fiction book.
Started them both a while ago but haven't been in the reading mood lately.
At All Costs by David Weber.
Setting my self up to read the next in the series in july and one of his shadow series books once I can get to a book store.
Silverthorn, 2nd book of the Riftwar Saga by Raymond E. Feist.
Currently finishing Galapagos by Vonnegut (not very good so it's taking a long time), On Truth and Lies in an Extra-Moral Sense by Nietzsche, and plowing through the Hitchhiker's Guide series again because I'm thinking about reading the new book.
Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson. On chapter 6 or 7 right now, and so far, I'm not liking it as much as Book 1.
Book 1 is in a class of it's own in that trilogy, dips in book 2 an gets exciting again in book 3 but nothing compared to the first one. It's well worth persisting.
I'm reading this book too. Reading chapter 8 now. I do agree that the first book (Mistborn: The Final Empire) was better. Things seem to be a bit more slow going in The Well Of Ascension. I'll read on though, because I still want to know what'll happen next.
The Well of Ascension has a brilliant ending (IMHO) so hang in there
I'm a little past halfway in Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay. It might just be his best yet.
I'm about to start the first book in a Young Adult series I found in my library. The series is "The Companians Quartet", the book is "Secret of the Sirens," by Julia Golding.
It sounds very interesting. We'll see, anyway.
Ste: have you read Silverthorn before? It's a good book, hope you enjoy it. Though I was disappointed it didn't focus on Pug, it's still a good story.
I need to find something new to read. Maybe I'll finish the Saga of Seven Suns. Had that book on the shelf for a while (though I may have packed it away now ).
Nope this first time through, I like Pug but I'm not that disappointed since I'm finding 'Jimmy the hand' a cool character to follow.
Gosh, I had to look up the Dragonking trilogy. I read them so long ago I forgot about the books and thought he was working on a new series I wasn't aware of.
Currently starting a reread of Shadowmarch by Tad Williams. Also the Iliad and the Odyssey. When I find the time to actually open a book anyway. A few pages scrounged here and there is about all I manage. Most reading time is spent wading through reference manuals.
