    I finally got the first George R.R. Martin book - A Game of Thrones, after people kept recommending it to me, so I figured I'd give it a try!

    I love the smell of fresh book tokens in the morning.

    Return of the Crimson Guard by Ian Cameron Esslemont. Already 100 pages in and this is the best opening to a Malazan novel since Memories of Ice. Seriously impressed by how ICE has upped his game since Night of Knives.

    World War Z by Max Brooks. Zombies! What more needs to be said?

    I have an ARC of Peter F. Hamilton's The Temporal Void due any day now, which will be much appreciated. Looks like my Wheel of Time reread is going to have to go on hold for a week or so.
