    I just finished Unwind by Neil Shusterman.

    I'm about halfway through Divergent by Veronica Roth.

    I've been on a YA dystopia kick lately.

    I did a thread search but couldnt find this....and dont remember if I posted about these series before?

    They are YA which I can be picky about (I still need deep characters). The one series is about aliens which I did NOT think I would be ok with....but yeah, I loved it. The other series is about a different species as well and in both, wow, I just LOVE the characters and their relationships ups and downs.

    I'm reading the fourth book in the Game of Thrones series. I only have a few chapters left, but I'm dragging through it because I know there's only one other book out to get my fix!

    I am on the last book in Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series. They grew on me as I went, I wasn't super keen on the first book but I have enjoyed the series overall.

    Except I lost my kindle cord, so until I find it I can't finish that book (ARGG!). I am re-reading Diana Gabaldon's "The Scottish Prisoner" in the meantime. I simply cannot be without a book, and Diana Gabaldon is my go-to. I can re-read her books a million times and love them every time.

    Totally! The Scottish Prisoner is kind of an offshoot Outlander novel, it's in the Lord John Grey series but Jamie features prominently. So I like it.

    I recently finished A Game of Thrones. Heading to the used book store later to pick up Clash of Kings.

    As for the Outlander series, do you find yourself reading some of the parts in a Scottish brogue? It's written a bit that way, but it comes out like a cross between Mel Gibson and Scrooge McDuck in my head :rofl1:

    Currently, I'm reading "Rise of Nine" (book 3 of the Lorien series).

    I just read "The Name of the Wind" and am halfway through "The Wise Man's Fear" by Patrick Rothfuss.

    How did I just now know these books existed?!

    Best book(s) I have read in a long time.

    I'm going to start on "A Game of Thrones" next and hope that series will tide me over for a time.
