I started reading a comic called Crossed. It's pretty gruesome and bloody, but so far so good.
Everybody's doin' the fish.

The Pendragon Cycle

I just finished the the first book, Taliesin,
and I'll probably wait to start Merlin until my flight back.

I might read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo while I'm in Florida, my aunt is trying to get me to read it.

Star Wars: Shadow Games by Micheal Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff

I just finished a collection of H.P. Lovecraft stories, and I'm hooked on his stuff, so I bought the other two collections that Penguin Classics put out  ;D

I really like that trilogy. Better than the other half of the Riftwar.

I've never read any of the Riftwar books.  This is the first one in the entire series that I've picked up, and so far, it's pretty good.

I think Jay may be mildly disappointed by my appreciation for Mercedes Lackey, though.  I'm not sure which books he's read, but he says they're too romance-novel-ish.  I agree wholeheartedly on the 500 Kingdoms books (which are, in fact, classified as romance novels!) but a lot of her other books don't give me the romance-novel vibe at all.

Now, I just need him to read some Marion Zimmer Bradley.  That woman could fucking write.

Finished The Sisters Brothers. A wonderful premise and setting, but the second half is the only interesting part. Everything else before that is dull and plodding, and the author seriously needs to improve his dialogue-writing skills. Everyone talks in the exact same way. And then there are chapter endings, or even entire chapters, that are complete non sequiturs. It's as if the author thinks everything he writes is pure postmodern genius and is begging the audience to ask him what it all means.
