    Has anyone here read the new addition to The Dark Tower series, The Wind Through The Keyhole?

    I read the original 7 books some time back now and have just gotten around to grabbing this one. Was just fishing for some thoughts on it before I dive into it.

    The Hunger Games Trilogy (EPIC)
    The Fault in Our Stars (in my top two now)
    Looking For Alaska
    Paper Towns
    Can't remember the other one

    You have read The Hobbit right? I finished it yesterday and loved it.

    Reading Outlaws of the Marsh. Great old Chinese Novel.

    The Suikoden series is loosely based off it.

    Booked to Die - John Dunning

    I didn't know there was a series of these books. I read what is the second book, really enjoyed it and now I'm reading the first.

    So I started The Wind Through The Keyhole, and it is great to dive back into this universe!

    It is interesting so far. Takes place between The Wizard and Glass and The Wolves Of The Calla.

    So far he's managed to keep the same kind of feel and flow with an all new back adventure of Rolands. Hoping it lives up.

    I'm reading Boardwalk Empire. The book used as a basis for the HBO show with the same name. I'm a big fan of the show and the book is a great deep dive into the story.

    I've heard...actually I know nothing about this Game of Thrones book except that people rave about it I guess. What's it all about?

    And that's great to hear! The twins you're having. Do you know if they are boys or girls?

    I assume you haven't watched the TV series?
    Its not much, ONLY THE BEST THING I EVER SAW! I just texted a friend telling him how the TV show will take more than 6+ years to finish because the books aren't done yet and it'll be totally worth it

    Seriously watch the show, there are 24 episodes out (12 per season)

    Yeah, as Itachi said, it's a series of books (5 out now I believe, with more to go. I don't know if the author already has a set amount) in a medieval setting, and with magic (just a little, not overly used, like say, Harry Potter) and dragons about 5 or 6 different families fighting to be king/queen (hence the "throne")

    Actually there's 20. It's 10 per season.

    I just finished the maze runner series. The first two books are excellent, the third was kind of disappointing but overall a pretty good series.
    It's funny that in this day in age people can steal as long as they have a reason too. Even if that reason is created by the thieves themselves.

    I'm reading Band of Brothers. Reading the book for the first time and I'm going to rewatch the mini series afterwards. Also planing to read the two books The Pacific is based upon as well.

    Finished "The Road" two days ago. Great book, one of the best post apocalyptic stories I've experienced. Unrelenting in its vision. Watched the movie afterwards, was a bit let down.

    Also, thanks Black wolf for bumping the thread, was too lazy to find it myself
