I saw the thread for Ready Player One here, and one of my classmates read it and really liked it, so I picked it up! Not very far into it but I already like it!

Holy jeez, you're a glutton for punishment!
I don't think I could read those two series back to back ;_;

Particularly seeing as WoT #1 is really similar to a lot of LOTR.

Dragoon, no problem buddy.

Been a while since I read it, so I might have some things jumbled... but I don't think I'd throw it on as spoilers per se, just what it references along with early foreshadowing sort of cheapens some things instead of outright spoiling if that makes sense.

Plus it kind of kills the mystique of some characters if that makes sense.

I never read prequel stuff until im finished with the main books. Thanks for the warning though Mac ^^

Dragoon, cool!

DON'T read the prequel first.... I think around book 5 or so is good for it.

Also are we bolding the titles of our books or italicizing them? It feels like I'm on a MLA referencing page
It definitely makes it easier to figure out what people are reading I kinda like being able to scroll the page and seeing the books I'm interested or have previously read stand out.

I'm currently reading Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon. Someone recommended the tv series to me and I freakin' loved it (BUT WHYYY did it have to end on such a cliff hanger ;_; ). Good so far! A little bit mushy.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

God I hate school. If the description to the life in the book Saturday is indicative of anything, my future career will be spent researching articles and looking at books rather than reading for fun. It's clear that the world can do without fiction.

I am currently reading The Republic of Thieves, the third book in the Gentleman Bastards series. Gotta say, I'm not enjoying it as much as the previous two books. It's gotten a little slow and a little sappy. That's not to say I'm not loving it, I just prefer the others in the series. The next one isn't out until July, argh!!

Gawd. I have to stop reading series that haven't finished yet :<
At least Sanderson writes quickly! I may have to give a re-read through Way of Kings sometime before the next book comes out.

quote Dantess26
Currently reading Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. Very well written, though odd that there isn't any speech marks denoting the characters dialogue. Is this very common in older fiction?

Also have Leviathan Wakes (James S.A Corey) and The Humans (Matt Haig) to read.

And sitting around on my Kindle; Stardust (Neil Gaiman), The Blade Itself (Joe Abercrombie), The Evil and The Pure (Darren Dash also known as Darren Shan) and The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor
He never uses quotations or denotations for dialogue. Just his personal style. Also, Blood Meridian is one of my favorite novels. Although, maybe "favorite" isn't the best word.

Dragoon get them read. You won't regret it.
