I just finished a John Connolly novella. Now I am working on The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks and The Grim Company by Luke Scull.

Taking a break from Way of Kings to "accidentally" re-read Carpe Jugulum. I think Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg are two of my favourite characters of all time. :)

Working through the second of the long price quartet series at the moment and also just began reading The Red Knight a couple of nights ago.

Really liked a long price quartet. Still one of the more unique series I've read.

After reading a 'normal fiction' book (which only stressed how much better fantasy is, hehe), yesterday I started "The way of shadows", Brent Weeks - I'm really enjoying it :D

I am now reading the Crimson Campaign book 2 in the powder mage trilogy by Brian McClellan, really enjoying it so far continuing nicely along from the first book.

Oh gawd I liked it SO much! :D
Usually I read about 45 mins at night before turning off the light, yesterday I read for over 2 hours because *I just had to finish it* (cue today's groan when alarm went off...)

I've already got the other 2 books of the trilogy at home, I simply had to buy them, so number 2, here I go :D

Just started Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere!  I know, I know - its shameful that I haven't read it yet.  Loving it so far.

My current audiobook is Crimson Campaign. So far, so good.

current book is the Shadow Master by Craig Cormick. This is one that I really have to be in the mood for. A bit steam punk, some humor thrown in, and a central romance. Not my typical thing on any of those counts, but so far I am enjoying it.

Not shameful at all. A group of us read it together for the first time a couple of years ago. Glad to hear your enjoying it :) I was very glad I read it.

Got distracted and started back on The Name of the Wind. I'm loving it, and don't know why.

well, I've never read it - the only Gaiman I've actually read is Good Omens, and that was becuase of the Pratchett factor  :)

I've just started Ancillary Justice, only 50 pages in, and I had to drag myself away from the coffee shop or else I would have been there all afternoon reading (not that there's anything wrong with that  :) )
