I finished Thief of time (Pratchett) last night, and it was *so* good :D :D
I loved the characters, the plot was super interesting, and it made me think a lot about time and how I use it, hehe

Continuing my Gemmell fest at the moment and I've just finished Morning Star (good book) and now onto Knights of Dark Renown.

Both books I've never read before and I've still quite a few of his that I haven't yet read:-

John Shannow series
Hawk Queen series
Lion of Macedion & Dark Prince
Ghost King
Last Sword of Power

I really need to get round to finishing his collection.

Knights of Dark Renown is one of my favourites of his, and yet for some reason rarely gets mentioned.

Perhaps not, but I'll push on a bit further.

Shannow, Waylander, Skilgannon and Druss are some of the best characters ever written.

I'd love for Clint Eastwood to play a Shannow movie.

I've finished Oathbringer. I didn't like it as much as Words of Radiance, but it was still amazing, nonetheless.

Finished Grey Sister. Now eagerly awaiting the next installment. :)

In the meantime I'm starting Kings of the Wyld tomorrow.

Finished Red Sister. Really loved it. No idea what bothered so many of you with that book...

I'm reading it right now. I think it's good but not great. It's actually a bit uneven for me. There are parts I love, and then the story will stall for more random training stuff, which just doesn't interest me as much.

I'm reading Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass prequel). Gonna be the last book I'm reading for the series, since it's only getting worse. After this, I'll finally get to read The Lies of Locke Lamora next. (after having bought it over a year ago lol)   8)

I'm almost done though.  ;D Gotta try to salvage as much of the book's price as possible.
