Leon Aldrich Thanks Eric for being courageous enough to share a YA novel with us. I still have yet to read any Harry Potter, mostly due to the story line isn't that engaging or uniquely original, even for a youth book.

Especially when there are TONS of great novels to read:
The Name of the Wind , The Black Prism , and the The Warded Man just to book drop a few.

Eric Yeah, I read YA stuff a fair bit -- I think a lot of the time, books are just marketed as YA just to sell more copies. And yes, The Name of the Wind is a personal favorite of mine, and The Warded Man has been on my to-read list for a while.

Stop reading anything else. You've got to read The Warded Man! (I won't say any more other than you will kick yourself for not taking the plunge sooner).

Eric There is a method to my madness -- I am not going to read it until the third book of the trilogy comes out next year, this way I can read all three back-to-back. Otherwise, I wind up forgetting too many details and having to go back and reread too much.

This same logic is why I have not yet read the Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R. Martin.

True. I am similarly afflicted. Although you can put notes down on each book you read to jog your memory.

Ahj And I definitely agree with this one.
