I'm currently reading Warhammer (30K) Horus Heresy, Book 1: Horus Rising.

I am 86 pages in and it was pretty good. now, i know why the fans call Dan Abnett, The best Warhammer 40K writter. Graham McNeill is no slouch as a Warhammer 40K writter as well, as far as i read his books.

Horus Rising wasn't just Bolter porn, (Bolter porn, a term i learned new from the veteran 40K fans HA HA !!!) which means it wasn't just action, there was an actual story and some character development in the novel, as far as i read.

I'm really enjoying it. Actually, i can't wait to get out of work, go to home and get back to reading Horus Rising.

Not reading anything too deep these days. I just started the Throne of Glass series by Sarah Maas. It's a young adult fantasy series. My best friend and I were walking through B&N when she came across the series and bought the first three. She flew through them and got the other four. So, I decided to borrow them and give them a read.

If anybody picks up the series, read them out of published order. Read "Assassin's Blade (2014)" first. Then go to "Throne of Glass (2012)" and read in order. "Assassin's Blade" fills in gaps that are mentioned in the other books apparently. My bestie told me this trick and started me out correctly.

And after doing a Wiki search for the title order, I see it has been picked up as a potential show for Disney/Hulu. Sooooo I best get to reading!!

I've been reading Grimm Fairy Tales for months. Just finished with Wonderland. I love these comics but the stories and the pictures are sometimes quite brutal.
It is a pity that there are no statues of this universe.

A newly printed Conan The Barbarian story Anthalogy by Ren Publishing house, a native publisher.

I believe i read most of these stories, i just started it and read the one with the Conan's chase of the Ymir's daughter on the battlefield. And then i'm at the Elephant Tower, part 2 right now.

I read both of the classic Conan Stories before in a different Conan Story book. Just amazing stuff, totally worth the come back to again and again.

Fairytale by Stephen King
Entertaining but the ending was a bit disappointing. He seemed a bit preachy in this one. More than a few off-handed political/religious references. I think his best stuff is behind him now which happens to everyone, even the great Stephen King.

Nearly completed The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Despite having read all the gear horror/monster stories, I’d never read this one before. Absolutely tremendous. What a great novel.

And I normally have at least a couple books already purchased and ready to read, but my backlog dried up and I had nothing new to read, which is probably why I haven't read anything since Forever Red.

Anyways, I was cleaning up my email account (an ongoing struggle for me) and came across emails from the Science fiction book club and Double Day book club, neither or which I had visted in some time. So I wound up logging on to both sites to see if any books had been added that I was interested in and I guess I just havn't kept track of my credits very well at all as I wound up having 6 credits for Double Day Book Club and 12 for the Science Fiction Book Club or basically I had the ability to buy 18 books free of charge. Gotta love that!
I recently came across a website that offers a wide range of essay writing services, and it has exceeded my expectations residency personal statement editor to delivering excellence. They understand the importance of meeting deadlines and provide timely support throughout the entire process. Thanks to their expertise, I have been able to improve my academic performance and relieve some of the pressures of student life.
So I basically went a little crazy and wound up cashing a buch of them in. I wound up purchasing "The Wind Through the Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel" by Stephen King, "The Wind-Up Girl" by Paolo Bacigalupi, "The Years Best Science Fiction (32nd annual collection)" by Gardner Dozois, "The Golden Princess" and "The Desert and the Blade" by S.M. Stirling, "The Cinder Spires: The Aeronaut's Windlass" by Jim Butcher, "Ultimate Star Wars" by Dorling Kindersley Editors, "Species Imperative" by Julie E. Czerneda, "Leonardo da Vinci and the Secrets of the Codex Atlanticus" by Marco Navoni, "The Horse: The Epic History of Our Noble Companion" by Wendy Williams, and "Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell: Dreamland".

So I have a bunch of new books headed my way. Will probably start off with the first on the list, "The Wind through the Keyhole" as I am a huge Dark Tower fan and just had no idea that a new stand alone title had been released. Either way, my backlog is filled back up again and I will soon have plenty to read coming my way!
Yes, these are actually just super books, I love them myself!

I have a lot of books, about all sorts of topics. I have books about filmmaking, Christian apologetics, American politics, and celebrity biographies, just to name a few. My main difficulty is slowing down my brain enough, to focus on one book for any length of time.
