I've read a TON since updating last, but I'll start this year anew.

So I've read a LOT of books since my last post, but I was really really surly about them and just didn't like any enough to spend more time than reading them required. It was like a test of willpower, Can I Suffer Through The Entire Series Without Incenerating This Book First.

I did, and am now struggling to find good stuff to read. That's actually out.

I picked up Scott Lynch's Lies of Locke Lamora and LOVED IT OMG. I'm currently trying to not read the second book, Red Seas Under Red Skies too quickly because I don't want it to be over yet!

As with George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, Scott Lynch is in the midst of still writing/publishing this one. New books in each series appear to be out sometime later this summer.

I hate waiting!

Anyway, I'll post a quickie overview of the Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies soon. So far they are the first two books I've read (that I'll admit to) this year so far. I also finished the last of Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series, The Confessor, in January, but I started reading it in December, so I'm not counting it.

Happy reading!
