    Found out about these books after netflix kept reccommending I watch Legends of the Seeker. Although the show was decent on a first hand watch, I now think that I know the reason it was cancelled so quickly. Though the books are great and very fun reading.
    This is actually what I'm reading also. (I have a habit of reading several books at once) I used to love these books when I was in high school and am just finishing The Wizards First Rule for the....3rd or 4th time. But, reading it now, it seems a little amateur - Goodkind has some fairly over exaggerated emotional reactions from his characters. But, outside of their ridiculous similarities to Jordans Wheel of Time series, they are a fun ride up until Pillars of Creation. Stop at Faith of the Fallen and you'll be better for it.
    There is no normal, simply levels of ignorance.

    I just finished reading the first two books in the Trylle series by Amanda Hocking. The first one is called Switched, and the second one is called Torn. The newest one, Ascend, just came out, but I have not read it yet. Trylle are trolls, but not like we usually imagine them. They are beautiful, powerful, and in tune with the earth. Some have the ability to manipulate the elements or use their minds to move things. This series is geared toward young adults and teens, so it's not as intense as it could be, but I couldn't put the books down!

    Just finished the stone of tears. Good book I think. Not really sure I liked the ending as much as I try to, but it wont deter me from continuing on in the series.

    For now though I just started the Second book in the Hunger Games series: Catching Fire.

    currently reading the complete collection of Sherlock Holmes (Artur Conan Doyle is a genius) and also reading the girl who played with fire (second book of the girl who played with the dragon tattoo). To be honest the latter is fun to read, but i don't really enjoy the way it is written. i.e she did this, she did that, she went here, she then went there. I'm thinking the book was translated- i think i read somewhere that it was originally written in Swedish, but i'm not sure. I'm also trying to get in a few chapters ever day of George RR Martins most recent book- A Dance with Dragons, which i'm a bit disappointed in compared to his last books in the series.

    I don't think my advice is better than anyone else's and they usually beat me to it anyway.

    I always have a couple on the go, flip between as the mood takes me.
    One generally insipirational, the other marketing or tech non fiction

    rereading "left to tell" by Imaculee Ilibagiza - A powerful tale of finding god in the rwandan genocide. A new york best seller at the time.

    Also "accidental genius" john levy - A study of free writing, just "letting go" and writing (a cure for writers block!) - a must read for all writers in my view.

    I'm in LOVE with that book, too. It's my favourite out of the entire series!!! I love all of them though, except for Lover Enshrined. It was harder to get through for some reason. I'm not a huge fan of Phury I guess, or Butch.... ;0)
