Finished Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris. Fantastic book! I think I'm going to move Silence of the Lambs a few spots up on my reading to-do list...

Haven't started yet, but next up will be Thunderball, by Ian Fleming.

Finished off The Narrows, by Michael Connelly.

Started and finished Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris. I actually think this is one case where the movie was better. I don’t feel like I connected with Graham as much in this format, though Crawford definitely still came through as an unlikeable dick. I don’t know.

Now reading Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, by Phillip K. Dick. Not far through this but enjoying it so far.

Finished For Your Eyes Only, by Ian Fleming.

Started Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris

After having had such a long love affair with the films Manhunter and The Silence of the Lambs, I have decided it is time to finally read the books.

Last week I finished American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land, by Monica Hesse and I really liked it! Thought it was a nice change of pace with my usual true crime books (arson instead of the murders I typically read). Overall, it was an interesting and wild story.

This week I'm working on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling, and End of Watch by Stephen King (#3 Mr. Mercedes series). I'm roughly 75% through with both so hopefully I'll finish those and then I can move on to Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris!

I know some people have some hang in about them. But since I was told about the Libby App. I've been enjoying audiobooks very nearly every single day. As a result, in the last 6 or so month's I've either read or listened to, or both in some cases.

Ready Player one, by Ernest Cline
I really Enjoyed this, and before discovering the Libby app, I listened to it twice and Read it once myself

Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris
This was really twisted and intense

The Silence of the Lambs, by Thomas Harris
This was Read by Kathy Bates and it was incredible.

Hannibal, by Thomas Harris

Hannibal Rising, by Thomas Harris
This was surprisingly good in my opinion, and made Hannibal's original motivations make much more sense.

A Song of Ice and Fire, by George RR Martin

This was very much like experiencing the first season of Game of Thrones again

The Vampire Chronicles: Interview with the Vampire, by Anne Rice
This was incredible, I adored the movie, but this was even better

The Vampire Chronicles: The Vampire Lestat, by Anne Rice
And this is when I fell in love with Lestat.

The Vampire Chronicles: The Queen of the Damned, by Anne Rice
This was amazing, I got even more invested and intrigued by the world and it's characters and origins thanks to this book.

The Vampire Chronicles: The Tale of the Body Thief, by Anne Rice
This one was probably the funniest of the series so far in my opinion.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams
Way better than the movie, and much more interesting.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, by J.K. Rowling & Newt Scamander
This was so short and mildly disappointing that I'm more perplexed it was adapted into 2 movies than anything.

Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan
Infinitely better than the Movie and it only gets better with each book

Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters, by Rick Riordan
The Series continues and is even better.

Percy Jackson The Titan's Curse, by Rick Riordan
The Series started to get more intense and dark right about here, the stakes are only getting higher.

Percy Jackson Battle of the Labyrinth, by Rick Riordan
The most dangerous and deadly adventure so far and it still gets better from here.

Percy Jackson The Demigod Files, by Rick Riordan
This was pretty fun it was like 3 mini adventures and a little bonus content on top of that.

Percy Jackson The Last Olympian, by Rick Riordan

The final Book in the Core series, This was wonderful and ended on a hopeful and awesome note.

Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes, by Rick Riordan

A Percy Jackson themed Crash course on Greek mythology that was not only informative, but also hilarious.

The Time Machine, by H.G. Wells

I'm astounded at the imagination of this author. He wrote This in 1895 and envisioned a future that even we today can't imagine. It's amazing. Great Novel.

Robinson Crusoe, by Daniel Defoe

I'll be honest I always get this mixed up with Swiss Family Robinson, but this was wonderful still.

All Things Wise and Wonderful, by James Herriot

This was one my Mother recommended, it was just delightful.

A Bad Beginning, by Lemony Snicket

I loved the Netflix Series, and I wanted to like the book, but the added sound effects were so loud It drowned out the dialogue numerous times. I may need to just read these myself.

The Swiss Family Robinson, by Johann David Wyss

This read more like a diary than a book, But I Still found it quite enthralling.

Harriet the Spy, by Louise Fitzhugh

This was charming and reminded me a lot of how simple childhood can be, and yet how perspective can affect how we view things. As an adult most of Harriet's "Problems" were laughable to me, but to see how devastating they were to here only made me smile.

Practical Magic, by Alice Hoffman

A great book, but I couldn't help a bias toward the movie.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, by Ken Kesey

This was so incredibly intense.

Collected Stories of Winnie-The-Pooh, by A. A. Milne

A bit whimsical and charming, but I definitely missed the voices of the characters I know from my Childhood.

1984, by George Orwell

This book was kind of... deeply disturbing to me. I wanted to use doublethink to change the ultimate ending.

Coraline, by Neil Gaiman

I'm a bit torn between the book and the Movie, Both have their merits, but I think the book was just a little better.

Charlie and the Chocolate factory, by Roald Dahl

This was just fun, but it makes me question why everyone wants to make the oompa loompa's so bizarre in the adaptations when they are described as simply small statured tribal people. I don't get this need to change their skin colors or put them in weird outfits.

Matilda, by Roald Dahl
This made me smile almost all the way through. And I just adored it. I love the movie too.

Tales from the Odyssey The one Eyed Giant & The Land of the Dead, by Mary Pope Osborne

I had never experienced the Odyssey and this was a wonderful way to experience the story of Odysseus and his incredibly long mostly tragic journey.

Tales from the Odyssey Sirens & Seas Monsters & The Gray-Eyed Goddess, by Mary Pope Osborne

I couldn't stop on part 1 I had to continue and it was wonderful.

Tales from the Odyssey Return to Ithaca & The Final Battle, by Mary Pope Osborne

The End of Odysseus Tale, was incredible and I loved finally knowing the tale of the Odyssey

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs
I won't lie. It was a bit slow at first, but then once things got peculiar. I was hooked.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Hollow City, by Ransom Riggs

Starting right off the end of the first. By the end of this book I was on the edge of my seat and went into the next book as soon as I possibly could.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Library of Souls, by Ransom Riggs

Things really got dark and intense this time around. And by the end I was so invested I nearly felt tears of joy at a certain event right at the end. I'm looking forward to "Map of Days"

And With tons more either on hold, or on a wishlist to enjoy next. This app has sparked my interest in reading again, and I intend to continue both listening to, and reading more books going forward.

I finished Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris. Good thriller, I liked it. I seen the movie years ago even so the book kept me engaged.

I'm starting The Silence of the Lambs, by Thomas Harris. Just like Red Dragon, I have already seen the movie but it's been so long that I don't remember much.

Comment from [Reddit user] with 3 upvotes on /r/books/

Just finished Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. I liked it overall, but thought Silence of the Lambs was much better. There was something a little by the numbers about Red Dragon, especially regarding Francis Dolarhyde but I suppose it's because it was one of the first successful books in this genre and probably got recycled countless times. Harris is a much better writer than what you usually see in this genre though so that always helps.

Also started Royal Assassin (Book 2 of the Farseer Trilogy) by Robin Hobb. I loved Assassin's Apprentice and I plan on making my way through the whole Realm of the Elderlings series.

Started Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris. So far, it seems a bit slow-paced, but it’s holding my interest. I do have to say, though, that I don’t like the narration by Alan Skylar on the audiobook version, so listening to it on my work commute isn’t as fun as it could be with a different narrator, but oh well.

Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris

This was recommended to me a year or so ago and I am finally doing it! I'm about 100 pages in. Are the other two novels a must or can this stand alone?

NOS4A2, by Joe Hill

My first Joe Hill book. I love that he mixes humor in with horror.

I finished The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, by Stieg Larsson

And this is the first time I'm going to start two books which are..

A Brief History of Time, by Stephen Hawking and

Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest was alright, I didn't think it was anything special but I still enjoyed it once I got past the intro.

i read lincoln in the bardo, by george saunders. i absolutely loved it - i'm planning on getting his short stories as soon as possible. i'm currenly reading red dragon, by thomas harris as kind of a fun break when i need a break from the other book i'm reading east of eden, by john steinbeck.

i tried to read history of wolves, by emily fridlund but i couldn't get into it. i wasn't a big fan of the narrator and going from lincoln in the bardo to it was a little underwhelming.
