Words of Radiance – Brandon Sanderson. I found Mistborne to be meh, but I enjoyed the first book in this series, The Way of Kings, though it could have used some editing down, so we’ll see how this one goes. Given that this tome clocks in at 1000 pages too, it counts as at least two books.
Shadow & Claw: The First Half of ‘The Book of the New Sun’ – Gene Wolfe. I’m being so literary this summer, no?
The Great Game: The Struggle for Empire in Central Asia – Peter Hopkirk. Because that’s just a great phrase and Gunga Din was a good movie. If I manage to learn some history about the ‘stans all the better.
The History of the Ancient World: From the Earliest Accounts to the Fall of Rome – Susan Wise Bauer. My Saturday morning and standing in line reading.
