    What Are You Reading?

    I'm reading THE IGNORED by Bentley Little, my first time with this one. So far I'm loving it.

    What are you reading?

    Obsession by Debra Webb, a mystery/thriller I won on Goodreads. Mystery/suspense thrillers have a superficial feel to them, kinda like Koontz; I have a difficult time with them.

    Thrillers have to be really innovative and original for me to bother with them much, though I do like a good crime noir here and there. When an author can incorporate the supernatural into them, that's even better (Jim Butcher, John Connolly, etc...)

    That's one of my favorite series ever. I envy you your first exposure to it. They only get better from there. (DARK HOLLOW, THE KILLING KIND, and THE WHITE ROAD are very, very good indeed.)

    I'm going to busy with Bentley Little books for a while (for a project I'm working on), but if I wasn't, NOS4A2 would be my current read. I'm a big fan of Joe's work.

    Well they are all short story anthologies and novellas. So read a few move to the next for a few. If I am reading a novel I will focus on that till I am through.

    Fangtooth by Shaun Jeffrey. Never read anything from him before, but am enjoying this one. Got it when Dark Regions had their big Sale For Good event recently. Surprised that my PB copy was one of the signed ones since it has been on sale for so long. Must not be a big seller, but not sure why.

    Will either be reading Gifune's House of Rain or Meikle's Clockwork Dolls.

    Also reading A Taste of You by Angela Meadon for free in return for a review.

    I just finished up a re-read (from many years ago) of the Swans War trilogy by Sean Russel. It has been forever since I read some fantasy work and I really enjoyed it. Up next is a re-read of Insomnia.

    Let us know how it is. I still need to read the rest of Wool. I read the first story in e-book form and was hooked.
    WOW POST 3900.

    I thought Insomnia was just OK, but it did keep me up at night

    Finished a A Taste of You, which was a good novella. Still reading Fangtooth, which is going well enough that I went ahead and purchase The Kult and The Mutilation Machination since they were both just $0.99 for my Kindle.

    Even though I haven't finished Fangtooth yet, I will be starting Exit Reality by Robert S. Wilson later today or tomorrow now that I have finally gotten it. It is a short novella, so it shouldn't take very long to read and then I can get to the newest Gifune book.

    Next Tuesday I should be getting And The Mountains Echoed, the newest book from Khaled Hosseini. Absolutely loved his previous works, especially The Kite Runner, and am very much looking forward to reading this. Have to be sure I am in the right mood for it, as his works can absolutely deliver an emotional punch to the gut. I made the mistake of reading his 2 books back to back, so I was too drained emotionally from Kite Runner for A Thousand Splendid Suns to have quite the same impact emotionally as I am sure it would have had if I'd spaced the books out. Not sure if I will read his newest right away or maybe save it for when I go up to the cabin on vacation at the end of July.
