I have nothing to read
First suggestions is the next book I buy and read
Are you interested in dark fantasy? I came across a trilogy by Brent Weeks called "The Night Angel Trilogy" that looks really interesting. It has a 5 star rating on B&N with over 250 ratings (which is difficult for any book).
The complete Sherlock Holmes collection, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Game of Thrones.
Those books are great. Just ask NightAngel
<------looks at user name, lol.
What you reading there days player
I don't see the connection.
You to then should check out my name sake
<------ completely ignores Vihzel
I see that you're 79 years old. Am I missing something?
I just added the trilogy to my amazon wish list for Kindle. Next gift card that comes my way or overtime at work will mean I get to buy it.
You really should, it is THAT good. Also anything by brandon sanderson, mistborn trilogy and all his stand alones
Halfway through Running with Demons and things and the story is really starting to roll along! It was a bit difficult to get into as the first chapters or so we kind of uneventful aside from small events here and there and a lot of explanations but now things are in pretty much in place and hopefully more action. There were already two events that made cringe... graphic details. hehe
Something I found a little odd that there's a creature called tattermedalion. In this book, they're referred to simply as forest creatures but in the Genesis series they're known as Faerie creatures. Hmm...
into audiobooks lately. Finished Steig Larsen's "Girl..." trilogy not long ago. Keith Richard's "Life", Just this morning finished Jules Vernes "The Blockade Runner". I liked Verne as a boy, but had never heard this. It was short and interesting. I am going to listen to some things I just never got around to before: Great Expectations, HuckFinn (at least not for many years) but first listening to some short, but interesting things like "Over the Top". I am also periodically reading, yes actually reading, a collection of old, classic science fiction short stories.
Thnaks I just ordered it from Amazon
Desert Spear by Peter Brett. Here. I really enjoyed The Warded Man, this is the second in the series.
I'm a big Tom Clancy fan and currently reading Without Remorse.
How many books total in the series? Is it still being wrote? Think i almost started reading warded man once.......
Never did get into reading TC. Always here mixed reviews on him.....
I think it's going to be a trilogy. Third isn't out yet, to be honest I haven't looked up anything on the series since I read the first book. There could be news on the third.
Weeks also wrote The Black Prism. I thought it was rather good. The first of a series. I'm looking forward to the second one.
Books 4 and 5 of the Dean Koontz Frankenstein series were pretty bad ass. The only book out the 5 that I didn't think was great was book 2, a little slow IMO.
Finished Running with the Demon finally and going to start The Knight of the Word. The book started out slowly (I think it was a bit difficult for me knowing what happens in the Genesis series) but then became quite thrilling with one thing happening after the other. At times it was a bit overwhelming because so much was happening in a short time frame. Great start to the trilogy and not exactly what I expected. There were just so many surprises and revelations that it kept you on your toes. hehe
Star Wars Legacy of the Force Betrayal.
GREAT book, great series as well. I was pissed by a couple of the events of that series though
Just started this series after reading most of the books from the Old Republic. Skipped Red Harvest as I don't think reading a horror Star Wars novel will be something that keeps my interest.
Yea haven't bothered with death troopers either..... New Jedi, legacy, dark nest were EPIC!! Its when they FINALLY started collaborating between authors for better continuity...
Not gonna start 'Fate' till its finished i think
