A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin. Basically just because I want to know what happens in the next seasons of HBO show Game Of Thrones. Good god cool shit is about to happen.

Just finished reading Superfreakonomics by Stephen D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner. I'm going to start reading Freakonomics (the prequel to Superfreakonomics) before I go to bed. A must read for every buddling economist, but also a very good read if you like fun facts/conversation-starters. Case and point: Superfreakonomics explains how you can make scientifically proven unintelligent monkeys turn to prostitution.

The Alloy of Law, by Brandon Sanderson

Follow-up novel to the Mistborn Trilogy, which is a really good fantasy read.

I will probably start on The Wheel of Time series after that, while I wait for The Winds of Winter (the 6th SOIAF book)

Tbh, Sanderson is one of my favorite writers! I should be rereading the WoT series myself before the final book is released in january next year but I think I'll just listen to the audiobooks instead.

I am currently reading "Dragons of Autumn Twilight" (Dragonlance Chronicles, Volume I) by Margaret Weis (Author), Tracy Hickman (Author)

You definitly should NOT skip. The books give so much more background info that makes stuff I didn't understand in the series suddenly way more comprehensible. :)

So I finished Allow of law, nice story, albeit a bit short. I really hope he's able to pick up his mistborn work again and start on his 2nd trilogy.

Skip 50 shades and read "The Siren" by Tiffany Reisz

At the moment The Thin Red Line by James Jones, although I'm finding it a bit of a rip-off of Norman Mailer's The Naked And The Dead (both World War II novels).

Somewhere I forgot to say:

I'm reading a book! Judas Unchained - Peter F. Hamilton

If you're into sci-fi and like Peter F. Hamilton, try checking out his Reality Dysfunction trilogy, imo it's a bit better than the Judas Unchained and the rest. Otherwise, I'd recommend Alastair Reynolds's "Revelation Space" trilogy, really nice ideas and the universe in which it all unfolds. This trilogy is one of my favourite as far as sci-fi novels go, and there are also (at least?) 2 more books happening in the same universe, have read one so far, and it's really good too (Chasm City).

Isn't that in the same universe? At least I have the next book, for the other trilogy waiting. ;)
