A Song of Ice and Fire: A Clash of Kings, by George R. R. Martin Huge differences from the show which was a nice surprise. The first book in the series was a bit boring to read because the show was practically identical, was getting worried I spoiled everything by watching the show. I burned through this book in 4 days it was such an enjoyable read. Looking forward to the next in the series.

Misery, by Stephen King My first king novel, holy shit I love this book so far.

Finished Stoner, by John Williams. It was amazingly well written, and I enjoyed it. Not many books take the task of detailing one character’s entire life, so that was a nice change. Though the same settings over and over got a bit tiring. I know it was done purposefully to show how mundane and normal his life had become, but it got a bit repetitive at times... which is the point, I suppose. It was kind of sad that we made our way through his entire life and nothing much ever really happened.

I just started reading Misery, by Stephen King. I’ve seen the film and loved it, so I knew I’d enjoy the book, but so far I’m enjoying it far more than I expected.

I finished Career of Evil, by Robert Galbraith yesterday. It was so good; I really enjoy that series.

I’m starting Misery, by Stephen King today at lunch.

Also I’ve been listening to Duma Key, by Stephen King during my commute.

The Crystal Shard, by RA Salvatore

It was a more entertaining book than I thought it would be. My friend loves the fantasy genre, and couldn't recommend The Legend of Drizzt books enough. After reading this one, I'm pretty hopeful that the rest of them will be just as good as the first.

Finished Misery, by Stephen King. Truly terrifying. Had to stop reading for a week when I was alone in my apartment and some parts were hard to read. I've only read a handful of his novels and he never disappoints.

Misery by Stephen King: No doubt Annie Wilkes is an original character to say the least, I had trouble reading any part about Paul Sheldon. He just appears to be an arrogant douche even when in desperation.

The Kangaroo Chronicles by Marc-Uwe Kling: Fun read especially if you're familiar with German humor and communism.

Rabbits for Food by Binnie Kirshenbaum: Could have been a good book detailing mental illnesses but it fell completely flat for me and it barely scratches the surface of such subject, the main character's name Bunny is another pet-peeve.


Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman: Curious to see if it's still relevant being first published in 1985.

Misery, by Stephen King

Still reading "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman" by Richard Feynman. Funny in parts, but I don't feel so warm towards Dick Feynman. Perhaps I didn't expect him to be that much into show girls but who am I to judge one of the most brilliant men of his time?

Also reading Misery, by Stephen King. Absolutely terrifying. Annie Wilkes is giving me nightmares.

I finished Misery, by Stephen King. The first King book I've read, I had trouble getting into it and put it down for months after the first few chapters before finally coming back and reading through it. The antagonist is extremely interesting and unsettling and I was really happy with the book.

I also finished Casino Royale, by Ian Fleming. I'm starting to realize that I really like spy fiction.

I started Live and Let Die, by Ian Fleming and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams.

Just got back from a trip to China and I got a lot of reading done on the long flight!

I finished Misery, by Stephen King and loved it. Very creepy and really engrossing.

I also finished The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, by Meg Elison and it was ok. I love post-apocalyptic stuff and this definitely had a Handmaid's Tale vibe to it. But some of the "wokeness" felt a bit heavy handed. Also, the story telling format seemed to be inconsistent. Sometimes it was like a journal, but then sometimes there was this omniscient narrator describing what happened to characters who left the midwife.

Still trying to work through The Stranger Beside Me, by Ann Rule which I'm finding frustrating. It's a compelling story, I suppose, but I don't love her writing style and I hate the way she talks about Ted Bundy and the victims.

Also finishing up Like a Mother: A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy, by Angela Garbes. It's definitely a lot of in depth info about pregnancy and childbirth, but I like her approach to discussing it.

Annnd last night, I started Where the Crawdad's Sing, by Delia Owens for my book club's book this month. Not too far in, but I've heard great things!
