So here’s what I’ve read so far:
By Terry Pratchet: Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad
What can you say about Pratchet? He’s amazing, hysterical, wise, funny and insightful. I haven’t read anything by him that I didn’t like, a lot. I recommend him highly.
By Terry Brooks: The Measure of the Magic, Bearers of the Black Staff
I was a little disappointed with Brooks’ latest. Not as good as his usual, and certainly not as good as his earlier work.
By Jim Butcher: Storm Front
This is the first novel in a long series. It was good. Tight plot and writing. But I wasn’t in the right mood for noir, and the novel left me feeling dark, which says more about me and my mood than it does about the novel.
By Suzanne Collins: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay
I don’t even know what to say really. These books were so good I rank them in my top 10 greatest of all time. Best series I’ve read in a decade. The honesty and insight into her characters, particularly how she describes the pain and anguish of anxiety/fear/depression/greif had me unable to put the books down and towards the end, having a difficult time keeping my composure.
By Frank Beddor: The Looking Glass Wars, Seeing Redd, ArchEnemy
This series was excellent. A different take on the wonderland mythos, it had me captivated. Highly reccomended.
