Seeing as no one has mentioned it yet, I just finished the first two books in the Kingkiller Chronicle and highly recommend them. The third book is not out yet and the second book came out in 2011 sooo, yeah, be forewarned. It's fairly standard fantasy with a neat, pseudo scientific approach to magic. It's also a pretty easy read (though I had finished Book of the New Sun prior to it, which is almost baroque in how strange its writing can be).

Steerpike, I might dive into Too Like the Lightning, as I have a woeful lack of any female authors in my collection. If you have any further recommendations, let me know.

This is an interesting list of ideas that Lovecraft never used. Pretty cool find, thought I'd share.
