I really like reading books and I like hearing about books from other people so I wanted to start a topic about it. So please tell us about the last book you've read, why did you pick it up, what was it about (genre etc.) and how did you like it after you read it through. Also tell us about your current book and what made you start reading that one.
Last book I read was Terry Pratchett's Hogfather. I had read the book already as a child and wanted to read it again. It being christmas time I thought it would be a great time to do it. I'm huge fan of Terry Pratchett's work and I especially love Discworld books where one of the main character is Death and this one he's pretty much the most active character so I loved the whole book from beginning to end. I would highly recommend it to everyone and all other Discworld books also
Currently I'm reading Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files - Proven Guilty. The Dresden Files has become one of my favorite book series of all time after randomly picking up the first one from the local library and after reading it I just went online and bought first 11 books of the series immediately. I finished the previous book in the series during holidays and wanted to continue the series as soon as possible, just made a short sidetrip to Discworld first. The series is fairly continuous from book to book and really builds up the story and characters in each book and it's getting more and more interesting and I can't wait to see what happens to Dresden. I really recommend this series also if you like modern day fantasy detective style books with a lot of action and dark humour.
So what about you?
