    Still reading the "Dangerous Women" anthology, because it's super long and I currently don't read that often. However, I've read about 3/4 of it now, so I might finally manage to finish it this month. :p

    I am currently working my way through Assassin's Creed Unity and before you ask yes they have books for the series as well. Honestly I very much so enjoy the books where as the games bored me. Anyone who would like a little bit of history sprinkled over a shadowy action tale would enjoy this series.

    Awesome characters, and the author has a great sense of humour. :)

    I'm still in my comic-phase:
    Part of me still loves epic stories and I get sad that most comics can't come close to the epicness of epic novels; however I do love that I can finish things easily in an evening!

    Currently reading:
    Tokyo Ghost - ongoing
    Monstress - ongoing
    Red Sonja Vol 3 - ongoing
    Rat Queens - ongoing
    East of West - ogoing

    Finished
    Legend of the Scarlet Blades - seriously recommend this one a lot!
    The Guns of Shadow Valley
    Dark Crystal Creation Myths - seriously go read this one too - its complete in 3 volumes now

    Reading Anthony Ryan's "Queen of Fire". I got the book as a Goodreads giveaway (signed by the author!) and I'm halfway through. How I wish I had the time to read the whole trilogy all over again.

    I've just read (well listened to, I'm going through an audio book-phase) 'The Last Girl' by Joe Hart. I really liked it. It's part of his 'Dominion' trilogy. The next book comes out in September; well, so he says, I hope he doesn't do a GRRM and wait for a couple more years.. :)

    What's that like? It's a bunch of short stories, right? Do the short stories fit into one big story line like Wild Cards?

    Nope, none of the stories have anything to do with each other, and they're all from a wide range of different genres. I liked some, was bored by others, and was quite disappointed by the one written by GRRM, as that turned out to be a little more detailed entry from the ('historical') Dance of Dragons as it is told in the World of Ice and Fire encyclopedia.

    Sounds boring. The GRRM short story, I mean :)

    Just finished a re-read of David Eddings' “Elenium” trilogy.

    Now debating as to whether I should go on to the “Tamuli” (never read them), re-re-read “The Redemption of Althalus” (amazing book!) or move on to another series.

    Listening to the fourth book of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, Wizard and Glass. I'm enjoying these (audio)books so much :heart:

    “Samurai William: The Englishman Who Opened Japan” by Giles Milton; couldn't decide whether to buy the Tamuli (does anybody recommend it?).

    “The Redemption of Althalus” by David Eddings.

    It arrived in the post this morning. I love this book! It must be the third or fourth time I'm reading it.
