Currently I am reading Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton.

This book comes highly recommended by two separate people: my sister and one of my best friends. I couldn't resist. I've just started, so I can't really say how I feel about the book yet, but I do love the language.
Before that, I read A Dance With Dragons by George RR Martin

This book is book number five in the Song of Fire and Ice Series, and I am still hooked.
In this book readers get to reconnect with Tyrion Lannister, quite possibly my favorite character. I have enjoyed his antics since the very beginning of this series. He's a smart-ass and he always manages to get out of every scrape and difficult situation somehow. It was good to read about his adventures again.
Daenerys is also a big part of this book. Her story has always interested me too. However, in this book, her story was less fascinating, in my opinion. I got tired of her life in Meereen and the whole slavery problem. I almost wished the author had just skipped the whole thing. I am glad that she finally got to ride a dragon, although I still can't decide if it was a good thing or a bad thing.
There were some very surprising deaths at the end of the book. At one point I almost cried. I was reading on a break at work, so I managed to hold back my tears :) It's difficult to imagine the series without this character, but that seems to be a theme since book number one when Ned Stark was killed.
I already cannot wait for the next installment!
What are you reading right now? Have you read either of these books?
