What do want to read?
My two this year, so far
I got my wife this book and she absolutely loved it.
I just read this book a couple weeks ago. I very much enjoyed it.
I made a books thread already but fuck me right?
I need to finally finish Scar Tissue
I also got 2 Ancient Alien books for Xmas/bday
Didn't see it
Sounds good that is on my list, but towards bottom.
She would love The Big Bad Wolf.
It is a half realism/half fantasy/history combo like this.
Will recommend it.
Just got her this. She’s fond of horror/thriller.
He is a good friend of mine. Dude, is a fucking genius
Taught at my grad school. We bonded over Jerky recipes
I started this the other day. It's pretty good so far
311 BB : The Book
Book is titled ALT
https://www.311forum.com/index.php?threads/official-reading-thread.1985/ It was 3 pages back because nobody reads like a bunch of NEANDERTHALS!
I read mostly horror and thriller books, so definitely down for any further suggestions. I'm reading through Clive Barker's Books of Blood Volumes 1-3, it's fucking fantastic. And I just finished listening on audio to this one:
Someone recommended it to my wife and she loved it, and then I listened to it and really liked it a lot. I love a good haunted house story and this one had an interesting take on it that kept me guessing until the end.
If you like horror an interview I just edited:
Oh cool, I'll have to check out some of the work mentioned in this interview. I of course will read the big-name books like Stephen King and those popular books like Southern Book Club's Guide To Slaying Vampires, but it is fun to find cool books from lesser known authors that just didn't get the same press/hype for whatever reason. I've found some cool short story compilations, novellas, and novels that way by going to some horror conventions and stuff that my wife has been a part of with her artwork.
These types are always my favorite. These girls are getting pretty big in horror niche of publishing. They have interviewed Stephen Graham Jones on their podcast and studied with him in grad school. I didn't have a class with him but attended every one of his open lectures. (He wasn't my genre) He actually sat in on my dissertation lecture and told me it was the best he had heard and hoped I'd continue my career so he could hear me again. This made me a giddy.
Final say on Clive Barker's Books of Blood Vol 1-3, it's fucking awesome. If you like horror short stories, it's tough to beat.
I finished up a few days ago an audio book Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell. I'd consider it a drama/mystery kind of story. It was really good, really kept me guessing to the end.
So now I'm about halfway through Hannibal on audio, which is the 3rd of 4 books in the Hannibal Lecter series. As was the case with Red Dragon and Silence Of The Lambs, the books are very well done and super interesting.
Usually I have 1 audio book and 1 regular book going. So I got the audio going and I'll start on either the Walking Dead Compendium 4 (issues 145-193 which is the end of the series) or Clown In A Cornfield by Adam Cesare. Both will surely be entertaining.
I use to have the same reading volume. With being an editor, I read the same amount of time, but 3/4 of it is submissions. I get like 17 a week. (all about 3000 words) Now I am lucky to read 1 book a month
I was reading Forest Gump and lost the drive halfway through. Might start my mentor's book of short stories (The Low Desert) it was named one of the 15 books of February by Time magazine. BUT I also want to read - How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House.
