What Are You Reading?

Dear oh dear, I've finally caved and bought a Kindle to share with my wife. Typically, because I'm a Philistine, the first book I bought was Game of Thrones. I know, I know, I'm extremely late to the party, but I might as well start somewhere. But what are you guys reading at the moment?

To be perfectly honest, I think the Game of Thrones TV show actually feels like a more subtle, well-made production compared to the book its based on. I'm about 30 chapters in, and I'm not a huge fan of the writing, which feels a bit flat to be perfectly honest. I think George R. R. Martin is incredible at universe-building, and that's clearly the strength of this book, but sentence to sentence it feels a little laboured and dull.

Still. I'm reading it and enjoying it for the most part. I just hate everything.

Anyway, let us know what you're reading at the moment in the comments below!

    I know most people will think it's stupid, but I'm reading "Naruto vol 44 - Masashi Kishimoto"

    Awesomest sci-fi I ever read and reread and reread is Hyperion- Dan Simmons. There are several sequels but just keeping reading the original. Brilliant

    I am a little sad to see that no one has mentioned Raymond Feist or Steven Erickson :(
    If you want a meaty, chunky, gritty, actiony, politicaly type book....you can not go to far past the Malazan Book of The Fallen series.

    You know what else. It only took him about 8 years to write the series. 8 books in total I think. What a great series.

    I'm about 200 pages into Dance with Dragons part 2, started the series late last year and I'm hooked

    I'm the same on game of thrones. I just read the first book, and i'm now reading Dracula the Undead("official sequal") before i go for the second book. I'm wondering if i'm not enjoying it as much because i know whats coming, or just that i dont enjoy the books

    I have just finished reading the first two of the Grey trilogy. At my age, I`m afraid it`s solely for the interest that they sparked. Obviously I will have to read the third one to complete them!!!.
    I must say that they should certainly put a spark into certain relationships. Unless, like me, you once had a partner who`s love-making skills were as dull as dishwater. There`s nothing wrong with trying to spice up your love-life and the first of the books ought to wake up many people to the needs of their partners. They are only books for Petes sake.
    Now I`m reading Lee Childs, totally different, but I love his books too.

    Reading The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks -- really enjoying it which is a surprise as the book description doesn't do it justice.

    Currently rereading the Ravenor trilogy by Dan Abnett. Just because its so fraekin awesome :)
