The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss

It took some time, but I finally finished the first two books in this series. Now I’m kind of just a bit obsessed and possibly going through withdrawal since the third book isn’t out yet. I’ve always been more of an urban fantasy fan, but perhaps it’s time to check out the older realms for some classical fantasy storytelling.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
It’s a lovely book but it focuses too much on whimsical, fantastical descriptions instead of its plot. But, then again, maybe that was the whole point.

The Kindly Ones (Sandman) - Neil Gaiman

Enter, Night by Michael Rowe
This reminded me a lot of Stephen King’s ‘Salem’s Lot. The first half kept me interested with its nicely-drawn characters and slowly building suspense. The ending, though, wasn’t very spectacular and it was even a bit disappointing. Still, if you want a story about scary vampires, this one’s a good choice.

The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
What is it about Russian novels that make them such a chore to read? But then again, gun-toting cats for the win!
