    In case you didn't know -- Red Dragon is the first book to feature Hannibal Lector. I think I could make a strong argument that it's the best of the books, with Silence... a pretty close second.

    Currently reading: A Shadow in Summer, Daniel Abraham.

    Next up on the list (loosely ordered):

    The Tender Bar, J.R. Moehringer
    Heroes Die, Matthew Woodring Stover
    Anansi Boys, Neil Gaiman
    Stalking Darkness, Lynn Flewelling
    The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss
    Auralia's Colors, Jeffrey Overstreet
    The Orphan's Tales: In the Cities of Coin and Spice, Catherynne M. Valente
    Ash, Mary Gentle
    The Confusion, Neal Stephensen
    Gardens of the Moon, Stephen Erikson

    I always make these kinds of lists and inevitably end up with some books that hang around unread for months (or years). It doesn't help that I'm a compulsive book buyer, so I have something like 30 books sitting in my TBR pile at any time. I'm never really sure what I'm going to pick up once I finish whatever I'm reading at the time.

    Hey! That's what I'm reading at the moment. I've gone through a little bit more than the half of the book and it's been awesome.

    Too many books to read, not enough time!

    I have a mental list of the following, even though it doesn't make 10:

    1) The Magician's Guild (The Black Magician)- Trudi Canavan
    2) The Blade Itself (The First Law) - Joe Abercrombie
    3) The Final Empire (Mistborn) - Brandon Sanderson
    4) A Song for Arbonne - Guy Gavriel Kay
    5) Gardens of the Moon (The Malazan Book of the Fallen) - Steven Erikson
    6) Elantris - Brandon Sanderson

    Right now I'm reading The Confusion by Neal Stephenson, I really liked Quicksilver.

    The next ten are:
    • A Clash of Kings - George R. R. Martin
    • Memories of Ice - Steven Erikson
    • The Briar King - Greg Keyes
    • Sly Mongoose - Tobias Buckell
    • Lord of the Silver Bow - David Gemmell
    • The White Rose - Glen Cook
    • The Orphan's Tales: In the Night Garden - Valente
    • Blindsight - Peter Watts
    • The System of the World - Neal Stephenson
    • The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenger


    At least that's the order right now...

    Yeah! It sounds like it's an excellent book. The second book looks even better according to the reviews . Have you read it?

    Hey, Gojira, you'll have to let me know how you like The Confusion. I've been gearing up to read it for a while, but felt like I needed a breather after Quicksilver. (Math and science aren't exactly my greatest subjects, so his books can be a little taxing on my brain.)

    I also just finished Cryptonomicon and really enjoyed it. It's fun how he links the characters in the Baroque Cycle to the those in Cryptonomicon.

    No not yet, Low funds for books right now, but it's at the top of my list!
    I'm wanting to read Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Blindsight, Prince of Nothing trilogy, and Neuropath as soon as it gets out.
    It's funny cause most of those are a little off my beaten path, lol. You know what I mean?

    Totally... I'm not even sure how I'm deciding what to read next. It probably largely depends on the mood that I'm in at the moment of choosing and on the last book I read. Experimenting new styles is good in my opinion...

    The second book I think is much better, although I think it helps if you read the two books back to back.

    The Final Empire series by Sanderson is a fantastic read, the magic system he creates is one of the most inventive magic systems in fantasy. Don't get put off by Gardens, if you can get past that book you'll love Erikson.

    I'll let you know. I know several people have said The Confusion is better. I liked Quicksilver quite a bit so we'll see.

    I haven't yet read Cryptonomicon but I've heard there are ties. After I finish the Baroque Cycle that will be my next Stephenson read. I really liked Snow Crash however.

    Yeah exactly,experimenting with new styles is my mind set right now.....don't know how long this'll last though...LOL
    I've heard alot of good about Snow Crash & I'd like to read some of Stephenson's other stuff.
    If I can just stay off the computer & DO some reading, I'll be in good shape!!!
