Because of all the great reviews and all the fans around the world I bought the most books of the serie "Malazan Book of the Fallen". But to my shame I didn't start to read it and when I look in my library I tend to pass it by. That is because I'm thinking of the other series I started, George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" and Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time", and I didn't finished them yet. I think that I want to start this one when I will have all the books in the serie and to read all of them. But maybe I will started anyway.
I am a huge fan of Stephen King. I have almost all of his books, but every time I look at "The Dark Tower" serie I leave it where it is. I don't know why, it's hard to explain, because when I see Mr. King's books not only I buy them, but immediately start to read them. "The Dark Tower" is another story and it may be because of "The Talisman" and the fact that I enjoyed this duology so much. I really do not know.
But the hope still exists, and in time I'm certain that this list will change, this books will be read and other great titles will wait their turn.
