An Update of Reading and Books


So what have been reading lately, you ask? Well, for the past while I've been working my way through the fantasy series Wheel of Time. It's been part of my life for a while now - first heard of and started getting the books as far back as '03. I'm about to finish Book 10, then it's onto 11-14. After that, I'm taking a break from series / big books by reading Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl (also want to read that before the movie comes out). For the next series, I'm undecided on reading Daniel Abraham's Dagger and Coin, or Stephen King's Dark Tower. I'll read both, but which first? 

I have quite a few books to last me a while. My next purchases tho, will be Maurice Druon's Accursed Kings series. I'll buy all seven in paperback the day the seventh is released, all at once. I'm also getting George R.R. Martin's material. Winds of Winter is a given, as well as A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

I also like some good YA from time to time, and after winning Cassandra Clare's City of Bones off of Goodreads, I'm getting her books in that series. I have them all paperback thus far, and am awaiting the sixth and final in the main series, as well as Clockwork Princess, all in paperback. 

I've also pre-ordered Bernard Cornwell's Pagan Lord in the format I have his books in, as well as Ken Follett's Edge of Eternity. Once Patrick Rothfuss completes his trilogy, I'll get all three in one shot. Looking forward to reading those, but in no hurry to do so because of that. 

My next purchases though, will be The Ghost Bride and The Golem and the Jinni .

Recently for my Kobo I purchased some anthologies - Legends and Legends II, as well as Warriors and Dangerous Women. I will also purchase Rogues once it's available.Recently, I've gotten Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson. At some point, I will also get the Earthsea books as ebook. I'm also curious to try out Windhaven

Lots of of books to read yet, and the 'to buy' pile, whether as ebook or print book never vanishes.
