In between 900 papers on burrowing owl physiology, I'm read Crimson Death by Laurel K Hamilton, and started A Superhero Saved my Life (A collection of essays) but have been woefully bad about making time to read either of them. I have a nice stack to get to over winter break, too.

I am officially done this semester and have about a month off. Can someone recommend a good read? I like fantasy. Preferably with lots of sword fighting and dying and epicness.

The Way of Kings, Sanderson. Has all that. He's amazing at worldbuilding.

Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss. The Name of the Wind and Wise Man's Fear are the first two. Third is forthcoming.

Best YA since Harry Potter. Maybe best fantasy full stop.

Not going to go into plot, but it's just got a great narrative structure, a great pace. Real, believable, flawed and tragic characters. Fantastic universe as a setting, intricate cultural things. Very, very good.

Book 13 of A Series Of Unfortunate Events: The End.

 

I decided to reread the series. After this book I have no idea what I'll read next. Suggestions are welcomed! I'll read anything.

Still reading Gulliver, per my post in the closed thread.

Book 13 of A Series Of Unfortunate Events: The End.

I had the first couple of those books, but I never really got into them. Never reread any of them I mean. I liked the meta aspects of his 'unauthorized' biography, but not really my thing otherwise.

Try Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials. These were profoundly influential on me, more so than Harry Potter. Or, if those look a little long or intimidating, check out the Abhorsen books by Garth Nix. The first three are classic YA fiction.

The Hateful Eight Screenplay by Quentin Tarantino

Been having some learning/reading issues lately so I thought I'd try something a bit more simple than a novel for once. Really liking it so far. Plus, it'll help my screenwriting. Win + win

Neil Gaiman - The Ocean at the End of the Lane

@Ali How did you find it? It hit all the Giaman moments for me.  
 

@redlion I must have read those Pullman books 100 times as a kid. So great.

They probably confirmed my atheism/agnosticism. Having been raised in the church, it's a bit of a revelation moment to think of the angels as individuals, or Metatron as corruptible.

Another book in this vein, though shorter by far, is Steven Brust's To Reign in Hell. It deals with the angels and their actions after the creation of heaven and earth, but mostly from the angel Satan's perspective. Check it out.
 

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee.

That's the one that she wanted to publish as To Kill a Mockingbird, right? The first draft? I want to read it at some point because I enjoyed the published version of TKaM, and the movie with Gregory Peck as well. But honestly to know that a good work of fiction was really an editor hijacking and rewriting the author's life is kinda... disheartening.

Thank you, friends. I will look into these before my internet-less week comes up.  ^_^

Waiting on the local library to get the second book in the Mercy Thompson series in for me. 
Some SOB in Norman has it until the 27th at the latest. *pouts*
On the plus side already received the next three and had the due dates extended through late January.
Really looking forward to binge reading: Blood Bound, Iron Kissed, Bone Crossed, and Silver Borne.

In the meantime reading vol 0 & vol 1 of Spider-Man/Deadpool and trying to get into Karen Marie's fever series with Darkfever but... eh... just didn't get as hooked as instantaneously as I did Brigg's Alpha & Omega (and Mercy Thompson) series.
Also picked up a few books from Earthbound Trading Co last night: "The Book of Chakra Healing" and "The Art of Palmistry".

 

Don't have internet at home so WAY behind on all my shows.
On the plus side I'm LOVING having all this time to read and it's been quite freeing being away from Facebook.
