    Just finishing off the Farseer Trilogy myself - will definitely check out more of Robin Hobbs' stuff.

    Absolutely concur with some others already mentioned:
    - Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, George RR Martin

    I've enjoyed the Thomas Covenant chronicles by Stephen Donaldson - 9 books in all. My perspective may be skewed as I started reading them in my teens and the final 3 weren't released until relatively recently, but then the same goes for Pratchett and Adams and I still enjoy reading (and re-reading) their books.

    Reading Life of Pi at the moment. I've gotten to the end of the second section and really don't want to read any further :/

    Hoping that when things pick up and I'm earning again that I can get into the Dexter books because both Tobias and I are really enjoying it at the moment. I'm also still waiting to get a copy of the next Ice And Fire book. I finished the last one when I moved into the house and haven't really had a chance to buy it yet. Going to have to investigate the local library when I'm back in London

    I actually really disliked that book. I hesitate to say hated, but I refuse to give it any more of my time.
    Show me your moves!

    It was a pain to pull myself through the first section. Couldn't put the second section down, but now I'm not wanting to read the third. It's not that great. Though I imagine that the film might be okay? I don't know. It was 20p on the Kindle, so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

    This is the last thing I read. Reading isn't my strong point so it's taken a while to read this even though it's a graphic novel.

    Do or do not - frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

    Reading one of Charlie Brooker's books at the moment, which is a collection of his column for the Guardian. Some good stuff, but he does go on, on occasion. Mostly entertaining though.

    I'm reading Pariah, the first book from the third trilogy in the Eisenhorne and Ravenor series. It's basically 40k without the space marines, about the inquisitors and their band of troops and usually envolves them sneaking around trying to uncover plots.

    I've read all 4 Mass Effect books so far this week. (I think there are only 4)

    Not too bad.

    Today Iain Banks died, author of some of the best sci-fi books ever written. Just incredibly sad.

    About to start The Race by Clive Cussler. My dad is a huge fan of his stuff, but mostly the sea-based novels, Numa, etc. I'm loving the Isaac Bell stories though. The Wrecker has been my favourite so far.
