Just finished Robert Jordan's wheel of time series book seven.
Will start book eight on Monday.
Mrs. Peregrine's home for peculiar children was a recent read and was decent. I loved the photos.
Finished david eddings belgariad and mallorian less the last book of mallorean. Need to order it on Amazon or something.
Read under the dome by Steven king before that... huge storyline as far as characters. Pretty good. The first I've read of Steven king. I have dreamcatcher and the green mile waiting on my bookshelf for when I'm between series.
Before that was game of thrones up until the last released book... my thoughts? Meh! Not as impressed as others were. Writing changed after book three to add fluff.... wasn't too thrilled with some of the ages of characters in the book. I found it unnecessary and distasteful.
Before that I read the first book in a series which was borrowed to me called enders game... I really enjoyed that book. I don't usually read spacey science fiction stuff but this one hooked me.  
Wow did I just babble or what... LOL
As of an hour ago I'm not reading anything so really I should have waited til Monday to post I suppose.

The Beast With Five Fingers - W. F. Harvey. I had this Wordsworth copy lying about for a couple of months now. It has 45 short stories. I have just read the book's title story and it was brilliant equally amusing and creepy about a wealthy eccentric family more specifically about a man and his recently deceased uncle's hand thus the beast with five fingers.

I bought 6 more of Wordsworth's series of mystery and supernatural writers and am going to buy a few more during my next shop for books.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Just finished Storm of Swords, by George R.R. Martin, book 3 of a Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones, if you've only seen the TV show).

At the moment I'm rereading Towers of Midnight by Robert Jordan (and Brandon Sanderson), book 13 of Wheel of Time. When that's done I'll finally be able to get book 14 and finish a series I've been waiting 20 years to see.

Then I'll start on Feast for Crows (book 4 of a Song of Ice and Fire).

I'm also amusing myself with Dr Dale's A-Z of zombies, but that's just for fun. And of course, I'm always trying the Bible, but I'm not sure that counts in a thread like this.

~ Regards,

The George R.R. Martin books are astounding. So dark. Tyrion is one of the best characters I've encountered anywhere.

Though I would advise you to put off reading the rest for a year or two, or you will have a torturous few years (maybe more) waiting on the next.

Personally I don't think he'll finish the series before he dies.

That's ok, ExpandMyMind, I'm used to authors not finishing a series in their lifetime. Robert Jordan (Wheel of Time) passed away several years ago, his wife found a shadow writer in Brandon Sanderson to finish - hence why I've waited 20 years to see a conclusion.

And yes, I agree that Tyrion is an amazing character. I've still got a couple of books to red anyway before that happens (I read them 17 years ago when I was in High School the TV series just got me interested in rereading them, plus the new book that came out). Honesty I hope Martin won't take forever to finish the series but it seems to be the way of things.
