Recently, I finished:

City of Glory by Beverly Swerling. Fun, if light, historical fiction set during America's War of 1812. A page-turner that's a good read for the melodrama, if not the deep historical research.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Dreck, if not quite as drecky as some of the supernatural YA books out there.

No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy. This is the third McCarthy novel I've read and I'm always newly surprised at how impressive he is. This is a hard book to read, but worth it.

I've started...

Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy on audiobook. At about 24 hours, I'll be listening for a while. So far, I'm mightily impressed.

Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie, the last in the First Law series. If you like epic fantasy in the style of George R. R. Martin, give these books a try. Great reads... and the series is FINISHED.
