    I finished Murder in Halruaa two days ago. Yep, it had strange twists, as Ara said. But I don't say more, because I don't want to spoil, if someone is going to read that book.

    And I found and started reading Sea of Swords... it is my first Drizzt book in loooong time.

    Re Tad Williams

    Just finished the huge "Memory, Sorrow and Thorn" trilogy (well the last book so big it had to be printed as two). Very, very good, even if it does require some patience.

    Going thorough the Unfinished tales with a thick comb.

    If one of the posible bloodlines of CEleborn holds true, then Elrond married his grandmother's second cousin on his father's side AND his grandmother's cousing from his mother's side.... :rolleyes:

    Yes, I be obsessed.

    Currently reading The Thousand Orcs by R.A. Salvatore, and I must say that it's the best Drizzt book in a long time.

    I fiinished Tangled Webs last night, the second book of the Starlight and Shadows books by Elaine Cunningham. It was soooooooo good. I was crying at the end it was that good.

    I seriously hope she writes more about Liriel and Fyodor... Id rank this series as good as Lord of the Rings series. I honestly cannot find anything wrong with these books! hehe

    just finished Syrup (damn good book), and started treasure island. Although it's nowhere near as interesting and fast paced :/
