Now on my shelf:
By Terry Dowling
Terry is the author I read when I want to challenge myself. He is a brilliant writer but is writing is not the sort that is found in regular mass market works, in fact I'd probably go so far as to say his writing, while still genre, has more of the feel you'd find in books shelved in the 'literature' section of a bookshop.
I won't read it all in one go, but I will read it. I might even learn something too.
I've put my 'secret' book down and am launching myself head long into Sanderson's The Way of Kings, and I am finding myself pleasantly surprised. I am not very far into it as yet (hopefully I'll be able to spend sometime over the weekend reading solidly) but what I have read I am quite enjoying.
