I just picked up Jim Butcher's Storm Front. The Dresden Files have been generating a lot of chatter on the forums lately so I thought I would try them out.
Also picked up Stephen Lawhead's Hood, Naomi Novik's His Majesty's Dragon, and Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn (book club book). My wife says I have a problem.

That reminds me to pre-order the new and massive Dennis Lehane novel, The Given Day, due in September. Advance buzz for this one is lyrical.

I hadn't heard about it. I've only read Mystic River, and that about 3, 4 years ago. It was one of the best books I'd read in a couple of years. Now I'm looking forward to TGD.

Not really Fantasy, but just found a nice leather bound copy of A Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, and after seeing the series, I thought it was time to read the books.
Also ordered The First Law, just need time to read them now.

I'm waiting on the following books to arrive from play.com:
Empire in Black and Gold by Adrian Tchaikovsky
The Steel Remains by Richard Morgan
I chose those because I had read good things about them, and because they were really inexpensive. The Steel Remains was 10 euro in hardback, and Empire in Black and Gold was 5.5 euro, so I simply couldn't resist when play.com also has free shipping.

I like to rock the party
This weekend I picked up the recently released Last Argument of Kings, and The Ten Thousand. I've been eagerly awaiting these titles for awhile, so I'm excited to read them soon.
At a used book store I also found a copy of Blade of Tyshalle by M.W. Stover. I haven't actually read Heroes Die, nor do I own it, but these are titles I've had on my radar for a few years now, and this was the first time I'd ever come across either title so I picked it up. This means I'll likely have to score Heroes Die from Amazon or some other similar source.
