I think pretty much everything else worthwhile I've read in the last few months was either part of a huge long series that requires a major time investment or was YA, which I don't know if you have any interest in (although there is some crazy good YA out there these days, if you're willing to wade through a lot of crap to find it).

Ooh, also, Connie Willis' Blackout and All Clear - possibly the best time travel/historical books I read all last year. And I tend to read about 250 new books a year, so that's kind of hardcore. Highly recommended.
Just wanted to let you know I'm loving Connie Willis' writing style; I'm a dialogue fan and she puts it to good use in Blackout. I've already begun recommending her to folks.

I haven't had a chance to take much of a peek at the Dresden books yet unlike you, I struggle to find reading time but what I skimmed looks promising!

I work in a library and see them come in and out all the time and although I love true crime and organised crime non-fic I've never felt the need to read any of his books. He's a bit of a dick. I suspect he takes credit for stuff he didn't do. A bit of a 'I am' One thing led to another is his full bio and is most popular.

SrsLii, that is a really impressive list. I aim and never achieve 52 a year.

Currently reading James Patterson's The Litigators. It's a bit boring. Last week I read Jeffery Deaver's new Kathryn Dance novel called XO and it was a pile of shit.

It's a book I've tried to read a few times but not got very far. Interesting to see what people say about the series, whether it's worth reading.

I wouldn't mind seeing one from you when you finish the book.

Can't promise you I will, but I'll try to remember. I've read 60 pages in 2 weeks, so I'm a fair bit away from finishing.

Excited about the new Linwood Barclay book. Didn't really enjoy The Accident but loved the two previous to that.

Just finished Hard Rain. Slightly different from Rain Fall. I was slightly disappointed in the Eisler's treatment of Harry. All in all though, not bad. Bittersweet, without any real resolution. The way the fight scenes are written is interesting. They're nothing mind blowing but the insight Eisler gives helps keep the pace. I hope this is present in later books.

I'm just about half way through "A Dance With Dragons", and I'm thinking I might be done this week. Next up on the to read list is "Shooters" by Jonathan Snowden.
