I thought it would be fun to share what we are currently reading (no matter the genre). I'll get this started with Frostfell by Mark Sehestedt.

Making my way through the Realms novels for the first time, with a focus on the RAS novels. Currently on Canticle, which, well, it's not great. In between Realmsian works I sprinkle in various other sci-fi and fantasy, and recently finished Leviathan Wakes and Drachenfels. --Ir'revrykal (talk) 23:57, February 25, 2017 (UTC)

Very nice! How many Realms novels have you made it through so far?

I'm currently reading Horselords. With a different and intriguing region and an evocative feel, it's pretty good.

The last actual book I read was Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation. Humorous and highly recommended. I have two or three other books laying around that I pick up and read when I'm waiting for a doctor appointment or getting an oil change. I'm almost done with The Tomb and I'm revisiting the Empire Trilogy by Raymond Feist and Janny Wurts, about in the middle of Servant of the Empire, one of my all-time favorites.

I always enjoyed the Realms novels set in "remote" areas ... even if the writing/plot was lacking. Frostfell is also set in the Hordelands. I really need to get to the Empire Trilogy. Those are the only Feist books that I haven't read.

I've been trying to find the time to read Venom in Her Veins. I'm loving it but progressing slowly. It's usually a matter of choosing between reading and DM prep.

The only Realms novel I've ever read is The Titan of Twilight, which I only read because information on Hartsvale is so very lacking, despite Giantcraft, and my PCs are currently there in my campaign. I can't say that I enjoyed it all that much. It wasn't terrible, but I don't get the sense that Realms novels are going to be my kind of fantasy—no offense to anyone here.

I rarely have time to read honestly, between work and prep. for my campaign, but I have very much enjoyed some David Foster Wallace short stories recently, and I had been reading Kant, but I haven't in several months.

You definitely have to be in the "mood" to read Realms novels, especially if you read more elevated fantasy on a regular basis.
