I'm still reading A Game of Thrones. I really like it so I don't know why it's taking me so long!

Which one are you reading right now?

I'm re-reading the entire Sookie Stackhouse series from start to finish, since Charlaine Harris just released the final book for the series. I read the previous book so long ago, and the rest of the books even longer, and to be honest I seem to forget some of the finer details. It's slow going right now, still on the first book, but I know I didn't really get into the series until book 3, if I recall correctly.

Requiem by Ken Scholes. The series started with Lamentation. Very good series if you like fantasy and not super well known.

I have read all the Games of Thrones. I thought book one was good. Book two was ok. I HATED book 3. Hated the characters he focused, hated the writing, hated the plot.

Gave up on the series. But then my library started having book 4 and book 5 for free for my Kindle. So I gave them a try. I thought they were the best books in the series.

So I might be weird but hated book 3.

The Dome (inspired by the tv show) but I don't know- it's well written but it's just one tragedy after another and I keep waiting for there to be some sort of triumph for the good guys but so far nada. I'm actually not sure I'm going to finish it.

I'm currently reading "The Blade Itself" by Joe Abercrombie (First Law trilogy). It's a good fantasy book so far.

I'm also getting "Indexing" by Seanan McGuire. It's a Kindle Serial so they release an "episode" (about 40 pages) every 2 weeks. It's about an organization tasked with protecting the world from fairy tales. It's amazing so far with 4 episodes released. You buy it once and whenever a new episode is available it downloads straight to your kindle (or kindle app).

Seanan McGuire also has an amazing series of books called the October Daye series. It's about a halfblood fairy private detective. I adore them and foist the books on everyone at every opportunity.

The first one! I'll definitely have to read something else before I start #2! It probably doesn't help that I'm reading them in English (which is not my first language) but I prefer not to read translations if I can help it.
