I picked up a few books today and I’m trying to decide on some sort of reading order. Familiar with any of the above titles? Able to read the above titles? Okay, allow me to help:
Dark Places, Gillian Flynn
The Story Sisters, Alice Hoffman
The Islanders, Christopher Priest (actually, already halfway through this one).
Moonwalking with Einstein, Joashua Foer
Volt, Alan Heathcock
The Devotion of Suspect X, Keigo Higashino
Care of Wooden Floors, Will Wiles
The Vagrants, Yiyun Li
Please Look After Mom, Kyung-Sook Shin
Ravens, George Dawes Green
The Little Stranger, Sarah Waters (enjoyed Affinity).
Sharp Obejcts, Gillian Flynn
Blood, Bones & Butter, Gabrielle Hamilton
A Dark Matter, Peter Straub
Familiar with any of the above listed books? Recommendations? Suggestions? Warnings?
I’m making up for lost time. Specifically, my time in Toronto where I went from a 2-3 book a week habit to 2-3 books the entire year. Also, after being pleasantly surprised by novels like Patricia Highsmith’s Deep Water and Helen Simonson’s Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, I’m looking to expand my recreational reading horizons beyond SF, Fantasy, and Horror. So if you’ve got some non-genre suggestions, would love to hear ’em. What was the last great book you read?
The fourth (and final?) issue of my SF comic book series came out today. Did you pick up your copy? Or are you waiting for the trade paperback to come out in six months? Thoughts? Questions? Critiques?
The gang at Comic Book Bastards weighed in on Dark Matter #4 (bless their hearts): Comic Bastards – Home – Review: Dark Matter #4. They say: “The series ends with the perfect set up for the next chapter and hopefully people will go back and check out the series so we get that next chunk of the story.”
You heard ’em! Check it out, people!
