I snatched the first 15 book of the Horus Heresy series from Humble bundle for a bargain, so starting with Horus Rising I have my reading schedule full for a few months. If I like these there are another 26 books left, and the series is still running.

I finished The Broken Empire trilogy yesterday. I found it a bit lacking. Characters seemed a bit flat.The main character in particular, did a lot of evil things for no purpose other than just to shock the reader. The plot seemed a bit contrived. Which was exaggerated by the fact that action jumps from "now" to "5 years ago" and back.
I liked the idea of a post-apocalyptic world.

I'm also listening to an audio book of Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie and I'm reading Arcanum Unbounded by Brandon Sanderson. Both are collections of short stories (based in The First Law universe and Cosmere respectively). Generally good, although, some of the stories in the latter are too short, they touch on something interesting without going into any details. From Sanderson I liked Emperor's soul and Mistborn: Secret History in particular.
Did you see that ludicrous display last night?
