Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded, by John Scalzi
Winner of the Hugo for Best Related Book. Funny, at times profane, at times moving. I may not always agree with Mr. Scalzi, but I AM entertained.
The Knife of Dreams, by Robert Jordan
A re-read to get caught back up
The Gathering Storm, by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
I was very curious to see how Mr. Sanderson would do picking up this series after the death of Mr. Jordan. I'm very impressed. I'll admit to feeling frustrated with the pace of some of the latter novels, but The Gathering Storm moved along well, and I found myself relating better to the characters than I have in a long time. I look forward to finally reading the end. I was so impressed I went out and bought one of Mr. Sanderson's other novels.
