Well, now, since I average a book a day, catching up from January is a challenge.
I remember I read the whole Jim Butcher Harry Dresden series over. I just finished Cyroburn for the 2nd time by Lois McMaster Bujold. I am currently reading The World House by Guy Adams. I just finished The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies both by Scott Lynch. Also Darkship Thieves by Sarah A. Hoyt which I probably won't keep in my library. I thought it was juvenile and the characters were flat. The writing was good, I just think the plot and characters could have been expanded a bit. It was basically "heroine karate-chops her way through bad guys and ends up with the cute guy." I also re-read some Ian Rankin.

Now why is The World House by Guy Adams turning into Bleak House by Charles Dickens? I did read Bleak House, billions of years ago when I was about 10.

I just finished the Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, 993 pages. This one took 3 days of reading. I thought it was just a fabulous as the first one. Now re-reading some Terry Pratchett and Jim Butcher's Alera series. Just got The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett in the mail. I like his children's books.

Finished the Science of Discworld. I have 4 or 5 new books to read but am contemplating re-reading Jasper Fforde's Shades of Grey. I have ordered his new book One of our Thursdays is Missing but it won't arrive in the mail until around April 4.
