The name of the wind by Patrick Rothfuss
The name of the wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Went through Proven Guilty and White Night yesterday and today, about to finish Small Favor before I go to sleep. I think I've spent about 8 hours today reading (day being a somewhat figurative term seeing as I wake after sunset and go to sleep around noon) in addition to the 5 hours yesterday. It should be another 2 before I finish this book then I still have another 5 of the series to go through. Of course then I'm going to have to reread them starting probably on Friday or Saturday, I usually miss about 10% of the text when going through it the first time out of excitement to see what happens in the story so I generally read through a series a minimum of three times in the first month of getting it (I've already read through the first seven of the series five times). Series is The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Back to reading now!
The last days of Pompeji
The old fashioned writing (the book is from 1835) is a pain in some parts and hilarious in others.

The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

Betrayer by Aaron Dembski-Bowden.
Few chapters in and so far it's been great, but then again, pretty much everything A D-B writes is great.
I don't remember if I've posted in this thread or not, but I've been reading through the Wheel of Time series the last few months; it's excellent.
Just finished the latest Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.
Those earned a new place on my shelf besides the Malazan, Song of Ice and Fire and Wheel of Time series. I can only recommend them to everyone who likes fantasy, even if you don't like urban fantasy.
But now I've started with The Witcher Series by Andezji Sapkowsky in preparation for The Witcher 3.
I'm not sure if it's the German translation or if it's like that in the original, but the writing is atrocious.
Don't only blame yourself. Blame the books too!
I just finished Blood Rites and am starting dead beat. The books are a little formulaic so far but still very enjoyable.
After Dead Beat things get really interesting and the universe really expands/opens quite a bit.
I'm kind of envious of all you guys just reading the Dresden Files for the first time.
Book two the game of thrones collection. But will take a break from that as soon as my Magicians End gets here, final book to an amazing series. Cant wait to read it, ive been reading the series for almost 20 years now.
When I started to Watch Game of Thrones. I thought of starting to read the books. And now as of the season 3 soon to end, I decided to pick them up and read.
Many thanks to Gamelol for the signature.
Been re-reading Wheel of Time, about a quarter of the way through Crossroads of Twilight at the moment. I think this is my third time through the series and I remember not finding CoT as bad the second time through, because I was kinda paying more attention to the other stories besides Rand vs. Bad Guys and was taking in more of the other people that, in my first reading, I didn't give a crap about.
Third time through, I'm taking in even more stuff. Holy crap, that guy could write ridiculously detailed plots with ridiculous amount of in-depth characters.
currently reading Christie Golden - The Shattering, its about the story around the Cataclysm expansion
having read the Arthas book she wrote and absolutely loving it i finally found time to read this book*6 hour train journeys will do that for you* and so far i absolutely love it, it gives so much more insight into the wow lore i think a lot of people dont even know about
i am also "reading" the new Doctor Who book - Plague of the Cybermen my parents decided to gift it to me as a listen book on the London tube's which so far even though i prefer to read a book its by far not bad and quite entertaining
Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card.
I've seen a number of people here on the forums talking about how much they enjoyed it, so picked it up when I was at the bookshop the other day.
About halfway through, loving it so far.
