On My Reading List

Annwyn's Blood, by Michael Eging and Steve Arnold

  • See my interview with the authors here.
  • First indie book I've actually started with the intent of finishing. First indie book that makes me thing not all indie books suck, because this one is pretty darn good. Will have a review for it once I'm finished.

The Emperor's Soul, by Brandon Sanderson (novella)

  • I'm behind on my Sanderson reading, which is sad because he's my favorite author. But I plan to catch up very, very soon.

Legion, by Brandon Sanderson (novella)

  • I don't even remember what this book is about. Just goes to show that I'll read a book if I like the author, regardless.

After that... I'm not sure. I perused my Goodreads list and there's a ton of books all vying for my attention. I might finally read Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal, or try out one of the epic fantasies I have listed there. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms won a Hugo and I had Throne of the Crescent Moon recommended to me by someone who knows his stuff. I also want to reread the Mistborn series...

Basically it's really weird to be picking and choosing what I read after having my soul entranced by The Wheel of Time series for a year. Seriously, a year. As in that's basically all I read ever, save for the month-long gap before the last book came out. Robert Jordan has left me empty and scrounging for good books to fill the holes he drilled into my heart. (Someday I will stop dreaming about it. No joke, Rhuarc and the Aiel haunted my slumber Monday night.)

What are YOU reading? 


  1. I'm finally starting Entangled by Nikki Jefford that I got off Netgalley.

  2. Legion is good. I picked up the audiobook when Brandon was giving it away for free.

  3. I am reading Nightingale by David Farland (a bit of fantasy young adult business). I try not to let myself get too mired in fantasy novels, or I find that I can't face the real world. The Wheel of Time is hard to slog your way out of, for sure.

  4. Next on my reading list is Atlas Shrugged (saw the movies and was intrigued), though my heck that's a long book! Afterwards I'm going to read War of the Worlds. I've seen the movie with Tom Cruise, which is set in modern day, but seeing as how the book was written before 1901, I'm curious as to how the much older setting will play out.

  5. I just finished The Many Shades of Dark, a poetry collection by Monty Wheeler.

    Going to start The Onion Caper by William O. Weldy next.

    Listening to the Audiobook version of Armor by John Steakley.

  6. Now that you're writing more YA fiction you should really pick up Percy Jackson, for a great hero/quest and Skulduggery pleasant for a darker tale....
