I'm in the middle of a huge reading slump right now - I have about five or six half-read books lying around at the moment, and I haven't been able to finish one in months. :( It's really quite odd, since I used to be the type who'd devour one or two weekly... I'm not sure what happened, but I'm not liking it.
The last one that I was able to finish is, I believe, Naamah's Curse by Jacqueline Carey. It might be my least favorite of hers so far, but I really adore the Kushiel universe - the mythology, politics, sexuality, etc. Are there any books/series that have a similar "vibe"? I've already tried Anne Bishop and Juliet Marillier, and neither really had what I was looking for. I've heard good things about Guy Gavriel Kay - where should I start with him?
Alternatively, these are the books that I had to put down, for whatever reason:
- The Years of Rice and Salt, Kim Stanley Robinson
- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Stieg Larsson
- Infidel, Ayaan Hirsi Ali
- The Eyre Affair, Jasper Fforde
- The Battle of the Labyrinth, Rick Riordan
- Archangel's Kiss, Nalini Singh
As you can see, these are sort of all over the map. :/ My pile of unread books in general is getting bigger, too. Any suggestions... ?
