I got stalled on the WoT series. It just started to drag on.
Yeah, I've only read through the WOT series once e before.As far as epic fantasy goes, I prefer Goodkind, Hobb, Sanderson, and Rothfuss. Most of the characters in The Wheel Of Time drive me nuts. Loial is just about the only character in the entire series that actually trusts the others.

I picked this one up:



Ready Player One was pretty good. They're making a movie out of it from what I hear.
I loved Armada. Maybe not quite as much as Ready Player One,but it was a great read. :thumbup:

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff.

It's a story about two twenty two year olds, Lotto and Mathilde, who are tall, glamorous and madly in love with each other. But a decade later, things are strangely complicated. Because sometimes, the key to a great marriage isn't its truths but its secrets.

Started The Heroes by Joe Abercrombie... but stopped 62 pages in. Just wasn't feeling it even though I've like some of his other stuff.

Currently reading "Caramelo" by Sandra Cisneros, it's a good book and she's a good author. I suggest you check out "The House on Mango Street."
