Dan Simmons' "Olympos".

(It has been so long since I read "Ilium" that I've forgotten much of the background!)

The Gunslinger (Dark Tower #1) - Stephen King.

My first King experience, about 100 pages in - loving it so far.

HarperCollins released around 20 Agatha Christie novels as ebooks for the first time last month so I am reading a lot of her books this month.

Freaky, those were the last two fantasy books I just read. I loved the Kingkiller Chronicle, I was let down by Lies of Loche Lamora, just never liked any of the characters & found the book rather cold.

Yeah, these were the new young authors that I've been hearing all the buzz about lately. I hope I really like at least one of them. I've been really disappointed with most of the new fantasy authors I've read lately (Brent Weeks, Joe Abercrombie, etc). I'll be sure to give a report when I get back from our vacation.
