Right now I'm reading the third book in the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. I absolutely loved the first 2 and this is growing to be one of my favorite series of all time. I'm going to continue reading Sanderson books after this, apparently they're all connected.

I like that series too but I goofed it. Without realizing it I started book four which starts a different time frame. A fantastic world and great characters. I like the story better than "The Way of Kings" even though that one is very well done.

I just finished Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It's my new favorite. My last favorite was the Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver.

That reminds me, Zer0es by Chuck Wendig is really good if you're into modern speculative fiction (and care about technological accuracy in your hacker-culture fiction).

And THAT reminds me of another favorite -- BZRK by Michael Grant.

OMG I'm addicted to Brandon Sanderson. Mistborn series was awesome. I also recommend his Reckoner series which is quite entertaining. wotf001

Oh -- and Morgan -- totally agree on Ready Player One. I hope the new movie doesn't chop it up too much. At least Speilberg is directing, so there's hope. wotf011

I recently discovered two gems by Robert L Forward, Dragon's Egg and Starquake. As a lifelong SciFi fan I'm ashamed to admit I hadn't read them sooner.
