So...read any good books lately?
Before we get started let's just all assume that everyone has already suggested
GRR Martin, David Eddings, Tad Williams, Terry Goodkind, Steven Erikson and Robert Jordan, Mercedes Lackey, Neil Gaiman, JK Rowling, Tolkein, CS Lewis, Robin Hobb, Orson Scott Card and Raymond Feist
There are other books out there and I want to hear about them
I just finished recently:
Shades of Grey, the road to High Saffron by Jasper Fforde
quick summary: sort of a post-apocalyptic version of our world, hundreds of years later where your place in society is based on how much color you can see. Very fun read.
The Warded Man
The Desert Spear
by Peter V. Brett
Every night demons rise from the ground and terrorize humanity "For hundreds of years the demons have terrorized the night, slowly culling the human herd that shelters behind magical wards–symbols of power whose origins are lost in myth and mystery, and whose protection is terrifyingly fragile."
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Sort of a grown-up version of Harry Potter mixed with Narnia
