    The Ender Saga! Finished the four Ender books, and the four Ender's Shadow books, now reading Ender in Exile. 
    There are five Ender's Shadow books, eventually to be a sixth.

    I am re-reading the blood brothers trilogy of the Necroscope series by Brian Lumley. I wish someone would make a movie about this series. If you like fantasy-horror definitely check this out if you have not already.

    Finished Books 1 and 2 of "The Dark Tower" (never read them if you can believe it)
    Started Book 3.  Lost a little interest

    Started reading "Into the Land of Bones: Alexander the Great in Afghanistan" and it is enthralling.  Almost done with it.

    Finishing book 3 of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Murder mysteries aren't my thing usually -- big Song of Ice and Fire fan myself -- but this is a surprisingly good series. I'm a fan of good writing. (Which implies I should never ready anything I ever write.) Author died before they were published. Series is technically called the Millennium series or something.

    Currently two, Fictionwise? I'm re-reading the Old Kingdom fantasy series by Garth Nix. The original 3 books (Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen). Not the Prequel or the new one.

    Non-Fiction, for when I'm not in the mood for undead and what not. The Lord of Misrule: Christopher Lee's Autobiography

    Hope you like it! I enjoyed it immensely, much like the rest of the series, but it can definitely be hit or miss.

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...

    I'll be sure to let you know how I'm finding it, after enough time to truly sink my teeth into a few chapters ^_^

    As a note, Gardens of the Moon is easily the worst book in the series. Erikson wrote it maybe a decade before the others in the series and he greatly improved as a writer in that time. Just stick with it and muddle through it if it gets confusing, because Deadhouse Gates is awesome as fuck and totally worth it.

    Im aalso re-reading this series (on the fourth), but never knew there were more than 12 or 13 books :open_mouth:

    Looks like I know what Ill be reading for the forseeable future.

    Planned on reading the Last Mythal series after, but that wont be happening any time soon, now.
    Huh. Neat.

    "The Way of Kings", by Brandon Sanderson. Pretty unique setting with the promise of a lot of backstory to be developed over time. First book in his new Stormlight Archives series, and it's pretty interesting. I was intrigued by his writing with the way he managed to wrap up "The Wheel of Time" series after Robert Jordan passed away.

    I just started rereading The Gentleman Bastard series written by Scott Lynch. One of my all time favorites. Wish there were more books in the series.

    My guilty pleasure is YA novels and I'm currently reading the Shadow & Bone Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. The problem is the books are not large enough so I read them in 3-4 hours and I am left with a void. :(
