I figured a thread that people could periodically update with books they've recently read would be better than making a thread for every book. Good place to post some comments about a book, to specifically ask for an opinion on a book listed, etc. Anyway, here's my list. I might add some thoughts about them later, but if anyone wants to know about one or more in particular, I'll give those priority.
Templar Trilogy - Jack Whyte:
Knights of the Black and White
Standard of Honor
Order in Chaos
The Templar Trilogy is absolutely fantastic historical fiction if you happen to love the genre in general. As you might gather it focuses on the Knights Templar and all the history surrounding them. Really engrossing series of books.
Mogworld - Yahtzee Croshaw
Mogworld is the story of a young mage who is killed and then brought back to life by a necromancer, set in the world of an MMO. Highly amusing, and despite Yahtzee's reputation does not rely solely on crude humor.
Dexter is Delicious - Jeff Lindsay
Latest book of the Dexter novel series. Excellent as usual. I highly recommend the series, especially to fans of the show who have not read the books.
The Fall (book two of the Strain Trilogy) - Chuck Hogan and Guillermo del Toro
Second book of a trilogy centered around a vampiric apocalypse. With a unique and engrossing vampire mythology and interesting characters to drive the story, these books should not be missed.
Let Me In/Let the Right One In - John Ajvide Lindqvist
Set in Blackeberg, a suburb of Stockholm, this book centers around the relationship between a 12 year old boy Oskar, and a centuries-old vampire child Eli as well as how Eli's arrival affects the other denizens of Blackeberg.
Handling The Undead - John Ajvide Lindqvist
Handling the Undead is a unique approach to the typical Zombie story in that the unread aren't automatically hostile. The core of the story is how the family members of the undead deal with the situation and struggle to make sense of what it means.
Currently Reading: Cryptum (book one of the Forerunner Saga/Trilogy and set in the Halo universe) - Greg Bear
