I just discovered this list and thought I would share. I'm sure any one of us could add to the list as there are only 5 entries. Still, I think the books offered are good choices and I've found at least one new entry for my TBR pile. :)

A good list. I have one on my TBR pile and another three are on my radar.

Thanks, Rowan! Death of Kings is on my Christmas list. I think I should've starred it and put it at the top in bold letters.
