Game of Thrones. Fun stuff, really neat how the show gets the major points pretty good.

Always interesting reading a book after seeing a show/movie, or seeing a movie/show after reading the book.

Dune by Frank Hebert

My favorite!

First time reading it? There's a whole slew of Dune books. Frank Herbert wrote a few originally, then his son came along and wrote a bunch more. Frank's are great! His son's....well...some are good, but they're really really violent.

We just got that series in at our library. I'm tempted to read it just because of the title.

I'm currently working my way through Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. I'm on the 26th one right now. I started in June and I'm hoping to finish them by year's end. I have about 15 left.

@JustPlainLucas:Impressive achievement. The Discworld series seems too daunting for me. I've only read Equal Rites. Do you have a list of must-reads from that series?

As for me, I just finished reading a graphic novel called Son of the Gun: Saint. Works by Jodorowsky are a virtual guaranty for me to enjoy.

Equal Rites was fantastic. You actually can't go wrong with any of the Witches books. They're all great. I absolutely love Granny Weatherwax. My personal favorite stories involve Rincewind and Death, so any of them (sorry, names are escaping me right now) are great reads as well. My personal favorite out of the Rincewind books is The Last Continent. He (Pratchett) parodies Australia! :D

EDIT: My favorite books involving Death are Mort and Hogfather.

@JustPlainLucas: When I first heard about this Manga, I thought it was about picking up girls who were locked in in dungeon cells lol.

The hero wanted to be in the Knight in Shining armor situation that makes a dynamic entry saving the goddess Hestia and she falls in love with him. So he goes to the place most likely to find a girl in danger but well... there were multiple flaws in his plan lol. It's a good read. If the premise appeals to you, then you should find it enjoyable :)

The Dark Tower series... Is it the one where a kid has some sort of knife that can "cut through reality" of some sort and people can travel into another world? My memory isn't all that great when it comes to all the different books I read when I was younger.

Absolutely. I'm wrapping up the first book (I'm at 92% according to my Kindle), and so far I really, really, really enjoy the book.

It's paced well; the chapters are broken up by character, and don't go on for too long, so it's like 30 pages of Arya, 25 pages of Sansa, 40 pages of Daenarys, and so forth. You never really get tired of reading it because you are always treated to something different, and you are almost compelled to keep reading because the end of each chapter is like a mini-cliffhanger; Martin switches to another character's story at the best-worst possible time lol.

I'm reading in the context of having just re-watched the series for the second time, so I am making all kinds of comparisons; not in like "the show/book is better" kind of way, just like "Oh, this is very similar/different kind of way". Of course the book is crammed full of detail that a television series or movie could not possibly incorporate, and there are some major differences in character descriptions and behavior: Sansa, for example, I hated in the show, but in the book she is far more of a wannabe-princess (if you can imagine that), yet far more tragic a character. I still don't like Sansa, yet I find myself hoping for the best (which is silly at this point, I know) because of the huge amount of pity I hold for her.

I've been told that the series diverges from the book a lot more as it goes on, but so far I have to admit that the first season of the show did an amazing job sticking to the first book.

Hmm I'm reading the Verification Handbook on verifying digital content, Harry Potter and the half-blood prince, Mistborn the final empire, Capital in the 21st century by Piketty.

I'll be picking up Machiavelli - On power, soon.

I don't read that many books, but I remember that as a child I absolutely loved The Satanic Mill / Krabat & The Sorcerers' Mill. (AKA Die schwarze Mühle/De meester van de zwarte molen/Krabat/etc.)

The Winds of Winter by George RR Martin. I'm reading it on my holographic eye display from the back seat of my self-driving, flying car on my way to work at the off-world colonies in the year 2076. I'm so glad this book finally came out. It seems like it was taking forever.

As far as reading books goes. I'm reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Don't understand why so many people seemed to not like it. I think it's okay so far.
