First up this year:
The well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson.
This was a great book, especially since a lot of the reviews i'd read beforehand didn't seem to rate it as highly as the first. I thought it was at least as good, if not better. Yes, i think the pacing was a little slower in general but it was interspersed quite nicely with red hot action scenes that just seem to slam into you at precisely the right moments.
Excellent book. Excellent series. Looking forward to reading the third one.
Second was Snuff by Terry Pratchett.
I was very disappointed with this one. I love the Discworld with it's wonderfully kooky characters and it's i-don't-care-how-silly-this-is-it's-still-damn-funny kind of humour. But i think that was the problem with this one in the end. It could have been set anywhere. The Discworld to me is Ankh-Morpork and it's whole host of characters not just Vimes in the countryside with a few bit parts thrown in. I think the best thing that i can say about this one is that it's by Terry Pratchett, so even his not-so-good stuff is still at least readable. Still, disappointing though.
Not one of his best. I miss the Discworld.
