Just reread that in early September. Still awesome.

Doctor Sleep was a fun sequel (just finished that).

I haven't read it since I was a teenager. It's gone well with the gray dreary weather of the past few weeks.

American Kingpin was great. It's the story about the creator of The Silk Road... before, during and after everything went down.

Now reading 1776 because history, yo.

Read that back in High School and loved it. One of my favorites from him.

Ha! Crazy timing, just caught the film adaptation of it on Cinemax - loved the book, kinda meh on the movie.

Any body into The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss? I am starting The Name of the Wind, and I have never read fantasy before- outside of Tolkien as a kid.

I thought it was alright. I went into it expecting more of A Song of Ice and Fire vibe, but to me it skewed more towards a Lord of the Rings/Skyrim type feel. I haven't read the sequel, though.

amazing book!
I keep meaning to pick this up . . .

Recently finished Strange Weather by Joe Hill, Head On by John Scalzi, and am currently reading another Charlie Parker Thriller - The Wolf in Winter - by John Connolly.
