The 'To Read' Pile

Here's my current 'to read' pile.

In there you've got Tomes of the Dead: Anno Mortis by Rebecca Levene, Bitterwood by James Maxey, Horus Heresy: Fulgrim by Graham McNeill, The Witches and the Grinnygog by Dorothy Edwards, The Death Ship of Dartmouth by Michael Jecks, The Mythago Cycle (books 1 & 2) by Robert Holdstock, The Killing Ground by Graham McNeill, Nation by Terry Pratchett and Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell.

My current distraction is Titanicus by Dan Abnett, a tale of mighty war engines battling over the fate of a forge world in the far-flung future war-consumed universe of Warhammer 40,000.

Any suggestions from the books listed above as to what I should read next?

Pah, call that a pile? Mine's supporting the roof of my bedroom!

Nation's a quick, but very enjoyable read. Bitterwood is great, too, and the sequel is equally enjoyable so worth adding to the pile.

Hi Rob

Thanks for the recommendations.

To be honest, the pile is taken from what would amount to a couple of bookcases of unread books, but these are the ones I'm actually keen on reading at the moment (or need to for 'work purposes').

I'm looking forward to reading Azincourt as well. I'm a big fan of Cornwell's medieval-based novels: Grail Quest series, Saxon Chronicles, etc. Have you read any of his other stuff?

Hi Steven

I've read the first of the Grail Quest (with the other two sitting on a shelf waiting somewhere) and the Gallow's Thief which had me gripped on a holiday to Kenya. A superb murder mystery.

Have you read that one yourself?

I have not read Gallow's Thief but am aware of it. I don't know much about it though. What's it about?

I think you'll thoroughly enjoy the rest of the Grail Quest series.
