    I just bought Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson. It's about time I got around to him, hopefully he's as good as people say.

    Oh he is, Phellim, but don't be surprised if the first book...how shall we say it...has you wrinkling up your nose in confusion (or something similar). I have a friend in that position right now - it doesn't matter how much I say 'keep on, it gets better, and you get used to his style' (ie, dumping you on his continents without a map, historical guide, or even a compass) I don't think he's going to make it. Alas. A lost Erikson fan, without knowing it! Heh. Yes, anyone who turns from Erikson to Jennifer Fallon (a fun, but lightweight, author) is likely lost for good...

    Poeticfantasy - wow, that's quite a haul! Hope you enjoy your reading.

    I've read all the malazan books, and I have to say, Gardens of the Moon was a little tough to get into. BEAR WITH IT. Once you get to the first scene in Darujistan, you are pretty much hooked!

    Scott Lynch's Lies of Locke Lamora

    So far I've enjoyed it but I haven't had a lot of reading moments and it's substantial. I'm hoping to plow through the rest tonight. He's new for me in the US.

    Yay - the husbandy-type person bought me a book-voucher as a stocking filler(he knows me well) so I treated myself today to The Name of the Wind - it leaps straight to the top of the to-read pile...

    Bought myself, the past month..

    THE BONEHUNTERS by Steven Eriskon, despite the fact I'm nowhere near finishing Midnight Tides and likely won't find the time for any reading because of exams and coursework.

    LAST LIGHT OF THE SUN, by Guy Gavriel Kay, because I decided to make up for my lack of time by buying books. They look so pretty on the shelf!

    CORSAIR, by Tim Severin - not fantasy and I have NO IDEA why I got this. I typically loathe most historical fiction for its often anachronistic nature and I didn't even bother to do a background check on this author. Just picked the book off the "new releases" pile in WH Smith (and this after carefully considering a Mary Gentle book and replacing it because I knew I wouldn't have the time to read it..). *shakes head*

    I was offered GOING POSTAL by a friend.. I've actually started on that, despite what I said above. It's easier to read during toilet breaks.

    I've also taken a pile of books off my bookshelf and stuck them on my bedside table. Books I haven't read yet, obviously -- it's like buying them a second time!
