    Right now I am on book number three of "The Expanse." I found the fist two rather enjoyable, and hope it continues this trend.

    I read my local writers, right now I'm deep in two polish writers. Jacek Piekara and Andrzej Pilipiuk. Both artists writes fantasy books, but Jacek makes his lore more dark, grim and raw, while Andrzej puts lot of comedy aspects to his art. In one of Anrdrzej's books you can meet a family of vampires living in times when in Poland communism ruled and they saved a wizard from bad guys. As a reward he gave them a seed, but not an ordinary seed, if you plant it with banknote of any value, tree that will grow instead of fruits will have money. I'm not telling more, because end of this story is hilarious as hell :D

    Right now I’m reading Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. It’s pretty good start so far but I’m only at the beginning.

    Just finished reading The Lost World of the Torah and Sentient Machine, both of which were fascinating.

    I Strongly recommend "Mistborn" and "The Storm Light Archives" To any who have not already read them.

    It's...interesting....I completely do not
    recommend it...It's like super depressing..

    It's about this girl and her family running all over the world trying to get away from a cloud that takes away souls.

    Upon a Stone Altar by David L. Hanlon. It's a book on the history of Pohnpei. Ancient Oceania is an absolutely fascinating place and I can't get enough of reading about its history and culture. Also plan on getting a few books on Andean civilization, such as Languages of the Andes by Willem Adelaar and The Oxford Handbook of the Incas by Sonia Alconini and R. Alan Covey.
