Currently reading book 3 in the "Alien Taste" series by Wen Spenser. All her books are quite enjoyable.

I also recently finished book 2 in the "Feed" trilogy by Mira Grant. This is a fabulous series, and I generally don't like the zombie genre.

i love reading books, always get a few from my local library. i mainly read sci-fi, mystery and fantasy. currently reading the great dune trilogy by frank herbert which is the first 3 books in the dune series in one.
if you like old age magic fantasy i would suggest the painted man by peter v brett which is about a world plagued by monsters that only come out at night from the ground fighting against the human race, its part of a series, book two came out this year called the desert spear.
spellwright by blake charlton book 1 of a trilogy is based on the old days with wizards and stuff but the protagonist has a form of dyslexia which re-writes spells, book two is called spellbound i think.
if you like mystery i would suggest voices and tainted blood by Arnaldur Indriðason, voices follows the investigation into the death of a door man at a hotel and tainted blood follows the chase for a killer psychologist.
journey in space by toby litt follows the lives of people on a space ship on a long journey to a empty planet.
debatable space by philip palmer follows a group of space pirates who kidnap the emperor of the human race's mother to change an oppressive regime that effects hundreds of colonized planets
theres a few by chris ryan that i read which i like, strike back and firefight
thats the only books that come to mind at the moment, if i think of more i'il post. sorry for the long post

Gauntlgrym, by R.A Salvatore.

My god, it was a literal orgy of delicious literature. Every single word was an exquisite work of art, a literal fountain of beautiful knowledge. The book inspired emotions of the strangest type in me; - Sorrow, anticipation, fear and hatred. The final parts of the book causes me to shed a tear, and it wrapped itself up perfectly.

Gods, I miss the characters in the Forgotten Realms series. Cattie-brie, Wulfgar, Regis, Bruenor...I can't even begin to imagine how Drizzt feels, knowing he's outlived all his friends and lover, and will live for many hundreds of years more.

Perhaps in the future Drizzt Do'Urdon may find love again. I pray he will, for nobody deserves it more. And, Bruenor...Rest in peace. You died the way any Dwarf should.

Rest in peace.

Memoirs of a Geisha

Fairly certain most people on here would've at least heard about it.. But it's the life story of a woman who was sold into the 'secret' world of geisha, and it tells of all of the hardships she went through to get to where she is today, etc. It was quite good

I remember reading The Inferno about 20 years ago.I borrowed it from the library, lost it, never returned it and never paid the fee. I believe i cannot hold a library card in Philadelphia any longer because of it. Just as well i do not live there anymore. Excellent story though. Keep reading through the whole Divine Comedy is prety good stuff. Sorry about any late replies to all of your great suggestions.

Have you read any of the prequel novels by Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson? Some are good some can be mediocre. However, if you were looking for more Dune it is not so bad. After the sixth novel by Frank (I think that was Heretics of Dune) it feels unfinished. And will probably stay that way.
No worry about the long post. I was trying to get people started talking about something in the first place. I hope your words encourage more people to pick up Dune if they have not before.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Can't beat classic science fiction...

American Gods by Neil Gaiman is the last book I read. Next up will be A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. Followed by the next three in the series until I buy more books.
