I figured it's been awhile since I've done a reading update so here's where things stand so far.
Chronicles of the Planeswalkers by B. T. Robertson - Page 50 of 216
Seeing as I'm well over the 10% rule (at nearly 25%), I am officially calling it quits on this one. I had some high hopes for this Pittsburgh-based author, but frankly he just couldn't stand up to the big guns of more established authors. And that's a shame. I think he has talent under the rough surface I've read so far. Maybe in the future I'll have more time to devote to reading this.
Midwinter by Mattew Sturges - about two and a half hours left of the audio version
So far, this is a bit of a mixed bag. I know I'll finish it, but there are parts that I'm not enjoying. I think it's more the structure of the story than the content. More details when I write a full review.
A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin - page 243 of 969
We all know GRRM can write. And in my eyes, it's a lot like Shakespeare. You can't rush the read or you'll miss something. Kind of like LOST but in print.
Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer - Page 52 of 290
A decent read so far that I'm enjoying. Very much a Young Adult (YA) format, but still enjoyable for grown-ups.
The Sword of the Lady by S. M. Stirling - Page 136 of 484
This is totally dominating my reading right now and will until I finish. Thanks to a little pestering and praising and patience, I was lucky enough to score a galley of the book. Digging it very much with only a few minor complaints.
