historical fiction? :\

Bernard Cromwell comes to mind. Been meaning to read some of his stuff for a long time, but he comes highly recommended.

song of ice and fire pretty much ruined reading for me too

any other suggestions then?

If you haven't read the Hunger Games trilogy, you might as well pick those up... They are easy reads, and are a good story... You can get a hardcover box set at Target for like $25, and it the three books only span like 1000 pages or so...

Plus the movie for the first book is coming out next year, and it was filmed in Asheville...

I'm currently reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (also going to be a movie in December) but it is kinda tough to get into so far... I think it is the first book in a trilogy too...

GRRM has inspired me...

Ive mentioned him several times in this thread but China Mieville has not disappointed me with any of his novels.

They are not all series but worth ever second you'll put into them.

Bas-Lag has 3 books that are tied together by location more than by common characters.

Perdido Street Station

The Scar

Iron Council

Just saw this thread and I'm not going to read through it all right now so I apologize if I'm repeating any earlier suggestions.

Otherland series, Tad Williams

Eden series, Harry Harrison

Black Jewels trilogy, Anne Bishop

Belgariad and Mallorean series', David Eddings

Having a brain fart on some others, I'll post when I get back home and can look at my library.

The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

They're really good. They're definitely very... different. The Name of the Wind is incredible, but there's definitely a weird drop-off between the two. You'll see what I mean.

R.A. Salvatore: The Icewindale Trilogy, if you're into D&D Fantasy type of stuff. All of those books with Drizzt are a fun read.

I'm reading "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. 52% in, and it is great so far.

I've got "Ready Player One" by Earnest Cline and "Reamde" by Neal Stephenson in my queue.

I'm also thinking about adding "Kushiel's Dart" by Jaqueline Carey.

And for you Zombie lovers. Check out "Feed" and "Deadline" from Mira Grant
