I've kinda lost my passion for reading and I dunno where it went. I used to always have a book in hand and now I just can't work up the enthusiasm or to reel in my attention span. Anyone else ever felt this way?

I get that way with gaming or with specific authors, definitely.  There are so many books on my list of stuff to read that I haven't yet gotten that way about books in general.  I'm always happy to throw book recommendations, so hit me up if you want some that might help you get back in the groove. :)

Thanks, Tooks. =3

Hmm, well, while epic fantasy is my more read genre, I think it's that which has burned me out.

How about a good mystery book, with good characters and maybe some supernatural elements? (That isn't Dresden Files?)

There are two series that I enjoyed by the same author, The Grimnoir Chronicles and Monster Hunter International.  In the Grimnoir books, the main character is a private detective, and although some people have superpowers, it's also got a ghosty-type element.  Monster Hunter is actiony, about people fighting werewolves and vampires, but not the Twilight kind.

There's also a series people just call the Pendergast books, by Preston & Child.  The first couple are comparatively weak, but they're not bad.  I'm told that it gets awesome starting with book 3.  I've only gotten as far as 3 so far, but I did think it was pretty good.

You can find out more about all of those pretty easily, so if any of them sound interesting, hit up the Google. :)

I finished up Steelheart on the subway this morning. It was a good, fun, light read. A tad predictable through most of the book, but it did have some nice twists at the end that made up for the predictability. Not great or mind-blowing like the other Brandon Sanderson books I've read, but still a fun read.

Next up I'm going back to my Sagas of Icelanders book to read Gisli Sursson's Saga, and after that I'll read Wheel of Time 9.
