Man it's been awhile since posting in here- currently reading the second book of Joe Abercrombie's The First Law trilogy- Before They Are Hanged and it's great stuff so far. Before that the 3rd book in the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher- freaking loving that series so far. Read a crappy Star Wars book in there as well. Read The Crusades by Thomas Asbridge- great condensed one volume history of the the Crusades that actually treats and presents both sides equally and fairly.
Butcher is by far one of my favorite authors. The entire Dresden series is pure gold. Also, check out Butcher's Codex Alera series. It's a completely different kind of fantasy series, but still awesome.
