Japanfan : Wheel of time is one of them, but I usually reread all the series before I read the new one. I just finished the book just released. I wish we wouldn't have to wait at least one year for the last book of the series !!!!!!!!!!!! You do have to remind yourself of the story anyway, so re reading all of the book is one way of doing so And I am still WAITING for the Game of Thrones latest books. He is way too occupied with the show and I am getting MAD at him !
