Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King

Since I consider King to be my favorite author I decided that I should probably read more of his books lol.

I'm on book 7 of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. I took a break to re-read 1984 because they are pretty repetitive. However, they are quick fun reads and I feel like I need to know how they all end since I've read 6 of them lol

Finished Wind Through the Keyhole last week,  and decided to re-read Child's The Enemy.  I'm open to suggestions for my next read if anyone has a favorite?  I'll read just about any genre.

Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon. While it's longer, so far feels much more comprehensible

Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson.

Wow. I read this before, but it was a while ago and I was pretty young, and I think I didn't really get it at all. It's fairly tough to get into, for me at least, but damn, the thing is massive. Kind of like A Song of Fire and Ice, except I don't hate all the characters.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Just finished Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. Really good sci-fit thriller. I really enoyed it.

Loved the first part of the Sinatra bio, can't wait to read the second part, which I'm sure I'm going to love even more. First, taking a bit of a fiction break with His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet

Decided to give David Baldacci's Zero Day a try. Since i like the Jack Reacher novels,  i figured this would be a safe bet.
