I am currently reading the Shannara series by Terry Brooks. It's an older series, but it is still awesome.
Oh man I remember reading that in middle school. Reading it is the only part I remember, but I'm sure I enjoyed it.
I just finished reading Mistborn and The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson. I'm looking forward to the conclusion of the trilogy (The Hero of Ages) when I get home from the trip I'm on.
