Let's see.
Recently I've read The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, The Child Thief, and The Innocent Mage.
I LOVED, absolutely adored The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. I read each of those in a day, maybe two. It was just one of those books I got completely engrossed in, I just couldn't put it down. And I love that.
The Child Thief was very good, an interesting take on the original Peter Pan story. This one was by Brom, and if you don't know his work, you should. This was his first novel, he's first and foremost an artist. But he's very much into the macabre and horror.
The Innocent Mage was the first book in the author's series. (Sorry, I don't have the book right next to me and I can't remember her name off the top of my head) It was an interesting read, worth it, but it definitely wasn't the best thing out there. I'm still going to get the second book, to finish it all off.

Right now, I'm reading The Book of Lost Things, which I'm enjoying a whole lot right now.
And next should be City of Beasts. Unless I find something else.

I'm trying this new thing where I only read one book at a time, but it's really hard to keep at it.
