How far are you? I thought you were going to wait for me?
You better hurry your ass up! I'm on page 271. And besides, you never agreed to that.
Finished Tower Lord by Anthony Ryan. His first book, Blood Song got me really excited. It was one of the few self-published fantasy books that I felt could hold its own against major releases. He didnt reach the same heights with this sequel but it was still a strong book. So I am still looking forward to the rest of the series. I hope it doesnt do a mistborn and go on a downhill curve but he created such a strong lead and a great world, I can really see him getting back to his previous highs. Still a good book and worthy series to pick up.
The House of the Scorpion (Nancy Farmer) is one of my favourite books, and it's no surprise that I read the whole novel in one setting. I was stoked that there's a sequel that was published last year; I'll definitely check it one out.
The Name of the Wind.
Infatuation is a gross understatement.
That story demanded my attention and obsession.

So I made a deal with my sister that if she reads The Name of the Wind, that I will read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. The movie is coming out in October, I think, and she really wants to see it, so I'll have to read the book first as it is.
It's about 415 pages and I'm currently on page 50. I think the author is certainly a good writer, but I don't particularly enjoy her style. We'll see where it goes.
