I am Jo Nesbø fan so I can definitely recommend The Snowman - it was really brilliant! I have never been frightened from book before. But you mustn't see the film adaptation - it is a complete trash! And right now I am reading The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor and it looks like it would be awesome too.

I'm a little over 100 pages into this and it is drymounting AMAZING. Obvi, if you're into the B Boys it is worth the read, but for anyone who grew up in the tri-state area it is an absolute treasure trove of 80s nostalgia. I don't know how much help they had but Horovitz and Diamond are both great writers - the words just flow like rhymes. Great coverage of the music scene in NYC 1981 and onward. Can't recommend this one enough!

It's a really great read (given, I'm a huge fan of the group). And, despite the fact that it is 600 pages, I got through it super fast. The 'chapters' are really quick and short and there are tons of (killer) photos. :pint:

^I read the intro when I got it for Christmas, but am already in the midst of another 600 pager, so it's next on my list.

Currently reading this:

Currently I am reading Eremitten by Thomas Rydahl. I am on 65th page and I think it is finally getting somewhere. After this one I want to start with Tørst by Jo Nesbø!!

Just finished the Witcher series. It was an amazing read. Now I'm starting to get to Sanderson's universe

Big Winslow fan, but surprisingly those are two I haven't read yet . . . I guess I need to get on those and then the final book!

Just re-read the first two Thrones books and now onto Storm of Swords for the first time.... let's see if I can finish these three before tipoff in April.

the last two should really be re-edited to make one long book - they came out so far apart but cover the same time period with different characters, I really lost the thread of a lot that was going on . . . I need to re-read the full series, but that's such a time commit.

I'd be curious how that is compared to the show. I've only seen Season 1 and need a rewatch in addition to the new seasons that have subsequently been released.

I read that awhile ago loved the book but bailed on the show .
