Another one. I'm interested, always looking for new things. Go!

For me:

    House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
    A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin
    The Gunslinger by Stephen King
    The Dragon's Path by Daniel Abraham


1984 after I clear one or two of these out.

I just finished "The Saint" omnibus of Gaunt's Ghosts by Dan Abnett, comprising the novels: Honor Guard, The Guns of Tanith, Straight Silver, and Sabbat Martyr.

I'm currently on the hunt for something new.

Just finished THRALL: Twilight of the Aspects. Such a great story and Thrall is such an epic character. The way the authors and blizz have put so much into who he is and what he's done. Such an inspiring role-model for lore geeks and anyone else lol. I actually rolled this Orc after reading Chronicles of War and The Shattering in honor of Durotan and Thrall. Apparently 100 other people had the same idea. Oh well, no OG points but still has personal sentiment. :-D

Currently reading Day of the Dragon. I have lot's of lore to catch up on lol.

In between various plays, journals, articles, and chapters from books for my classes...

I've been reading stuff from Necromonicon: The Best Weird Tales of H.P. Lovecraft. Going to start either Game of Thrones or another read through of the Wheel of Time series as soon as I finish Lovecraft.

As I said in the other thread, I'm re-reading Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood, and will next read The Year of the Flood.

After that I hope to have a copy of Native Tongue by Suzette Haden Elgin to read, but if not, I may actually start these George R. R. Martin books I see folks raving about :D; my husband didn't care for them that much it seems, but he and I have slightly divergent tastes, and he still has the books. (He was going to give them away, but our laziness means we still have them...which is now a good thing!)

I recently finished Lord of the Flies and I found it to be quite weird. The current one I'm on is The Catcher in the Rye. I never learned these in school so why not read em anyway? I'm game for classics.

Catch-22, which might just be the funniest thing I've ever read.

Brave New World, and 1984 right after I'm done.

A Game of Thrones. I'm one of the ones who jumped in on the bandwagon with the TV show, but I've known about the series for a long time. The show set off the lightbulb that said "Maybe I should go read these books instead of sit on my unmentionables until April for the next season to start."

American Gods. Funny, then sad, then just weird, then sad again.

Death's Acre. I live so close to the body farm, it's interesting to learn how it started.

Long term I'm still working through Divine Comedy, a compilation of Hans Christian Anderson, The Book of Five Rings, and the Holy Bible.

Dynamic Figure Drawing by Burne Hogarth
Dynamic Wrinkles and Drapery by Burne Hogarth
Dynamic Light and Shadow by Burne Hogarth

I just finished World of Warcraft: Stormrage, by Richard Knaak, which wasn't as bad as I expected.

Now I'm returning to reading The Wheel of Time series, by Robert Jordan, which will take forever. Currently, I'm in the middle of the 4th novel, The Shadow Rising.

I also plan to read Warcraft: War of the Ancients trilogy by Richard Knaak afterwards or at the same time.
