In the last few weeks, roughly since the middle of April the end of March, I've found myself reading a lot more.  Which is great.  Since, 1.) I love reading and 2.) have a lot more time on my hands.  I thought I'd share with you folks the fine books I've recently read, in no particular order.

  1. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson (book 1 of The Stormlight Chronicles)
  2. Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderon (book 2 of The Stormlight Chronicles)
  3. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson (book 1 of The Reckoners)* **
  4. Sabriel by Garth Nix (book 1 of Abhorsen)* **
  5. The Killing Floor by Lee Child* **
  6. The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (book 1 of The Kingkiller Chronicles)**
  7. Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks (book 1 of The Dark Legacy of Shannara)
  8. Bloodfire Quest by Terry Brooks (book 2 of The Dark Legacy of Shannara)**
  9. Witch Wraith by Terry Brooks (book 3 of The Dark Legacy of Shannara)
  10. Writing Monsters: How to Craft Believably Terrifying Creatures to Enhance Your Horror, Fantasy, and Science Fiction by Philip Athans*
  11. Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction: How to Create Out-of-this-World Novels and Short Stories by Orson Scott Card, Philip Athans, and Jay Lake*

Now, officially, I'm currently reading Bloodfire Quest but will immediately, I hope, read Witch Wraith to finish the trilogy.  I then plan to pick up The Wise Man's Fear by Mr. Rothfuss.

I know what you're thinking, why start so many series/trilogies, especially those that aren't finished, yet?  Didn't I learn my lesson waiting for The Wheel of Time or A Song of Ice and Fire?  Clearly, the answer is no.

Though, I think I might move into something a little different.  Maybe thriller or mystery or science fiction...  Who knows?
