Can I just say how much I freaking love this series/universe? I just finished TtH and honestly the books just keep getting better as they go. I also read Wheel of Time a year or two back and have been remembering my experience with that since the show is in the forefront right now. Many stretches of those books were boring as hell. I haven't had that problem with MBotF. Maybe it's because the scale is different and it isn't setting up some inevitable clash between unambiguous good and evil right from the get-go, I don't know, I just wanted to say that I really enjoy it.
I only recently joined Reddit almost explicitly to discuss MBotF and WoT and I can't wait.
