    Just read David Benioff's "City of Thieves." A good, fairly quickly read. Also read John Connolly's "The Wanderer of Unknown Realms." Also a good, quick read. Sort of a mix of a John Dunning book mystery and HP Lovecraft.

    My girlfriend has decided to dive into War and Peace. I started reading it years ago but didn't make it past the 400th page.

    Michelle Sagara is another good one, although in the books I've read so far (her Elantra series), there seems to be a point about 2/3 of the way through the book where she gets kind of stuck and the pace slows down almost enough to put you to sleep before it picks back up again.

    I confess I still read Laurell Hamilton. I check the book out from the library and skip the sex scenes, leaving about 100 pages per book to read. Then I go on Amazon and read the reviews and laugh myself silly.

    Yes that was supposed to be Sheri Tepper. I use my iPad a lot here and it has the autocorrect, which is mostly helpful, but sometimes a pain in the rear.
    Grass is my favorite novel by Sherri, humans on an alien world. There are few authors that write interesting aliens, I found hers very intriguing. This novel is not for the faint of heart, it's big.
    If you want something lighter, read Family tree, my other favorite from her. It's smaller, sometimes hilarious, but well written.
    My wife likes Hamilton, but I really don't, but I have read all the otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong.

    I have the first Kelley Armstrong Otherworld novel, and really liked it. For some reason I haven't gotten back to that series. Need to pull Bitten out and read it again, then check out the rest of the series. Right now I'm working on Andre Norton's Witchworld. The first chapter was great, the rest of it seems like it could have used some heavy duty editing. We've been purging our bookshelves--this one might be another one that gets donated to the library. I'll have to look into Sheri Tepper. I have a couple series that I'm reading coming out with new books over the next couple of months (Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles and Anne Bishop's Others series) and need something to fill in the wait. Just picked up Nightwatch today, and I'm 4th in the queue for the new Terry Pratchett book at the library. And the next Harry Dresden book is showing up on Amazon with a publication date of May 27!

    Forgot to mention my current fave Peter F Hamilton. Try starting with The Reality Dysfunction, sweeping space opera with a bit of a twist

    compelling stuff especially when there's a bunch of mods. Some of the "authors" are way more creative and/or stupid than others.

    Since you were brave enough to admit it, I do too.

    Robert Crais has a fun Private Eye series (Elvis Cole & Joe Pike).

    I also read the fine print.
