    Gears of War: Coalition's end

    Brilliant book, up to chapter 12 at the moment. Really like how it swaps between present and past every few chapters.

        Previously read the soldier boy series by Robin Hobb

        *big gap*

        Currently reading The Gatherine Storm, wheel of time series. This being one of the two after Robert Jordan died and passed it on to Brandon Sanderson.

        Never been a huge fan of the wheel of time series, as they seem to take a good portion of the book just to get going but as I've read the other eleven I feel I NEED to finish the series.

        Afterwards I'll probably look into what Robin Hobb's been doing since soldier boy.

            I've been reading A Feast For Crows but I've kind of given up on it for a bit. Not as good as the previous three.

              I dont tend to read all that much but I will be getting Inheritance when it comes out, probably need to pre-order it soon.

              Other than that I finished reading The Amber Spyglass a couple of months ago and really enjoyed reading through His Dark Materials.

                Good books, although you probably wouldn't enjoy them if you had strong Christian beliefs, he has a bit of a chip on his shoulder about religion.

                Currently reading 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', Stieg Larsson, half way through and enjoying it so far.

                  Incidentally, I heard an interview with the long term partner of Larsson's the other day (You know he's dead now?) She said some parts of that book were ideas of hers, not his and that the title of the book was something else but to his fury his publishers decided to title it 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' and he couldn't stop them...

                    Yeah I knew he was dead, in fact the books were published posthumously when they first came out in 2004 I believe. The swedes seem to do good crime fiction, the Wallander stuff is good too.
