What are you reading?

Tell me what you are reading.  Always interested in finding new reads in whatever forms they come in. 

  • I'm rereading "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams. I love a good sci-fi theme and the dry British humor.

  • The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. Great book and author for truth that is stranger than fiction history.

  • cold mountain by charles frazier

  • I just finished the most recent book in the Guild Codex: Warped series by Annette Marie & Rob Jacobsen. It's one of several interwoven urban fantasy series that Annette does. Now impatiently waiting for the fourth installment next month.

  • I'm currently reading Sythe by Neal Shusterman! It's a good book, I love the action and the suspense :)

  • Inferno: The World at War 1939-1945 by Max Hastings, it is about world war II

  • Latest is The Stand by Steven King. I'm a junky for post apocalyptic storytelling and as any fan of the genre will tell you, not all apocalyptic adventures are created equally! The depth and scope of storytelling demonstrated by the author is marvelous! Storytelling is an art, it's easy to get lost in the details and then shortly after lose the audience! Having found the "Goldilocks" zone for precise detail and shadowed speculation, this title provides everything to keep you turning pages and wanting more. 

  • I haven't so much been reading a book, as much as I've been writing one for the past 3-4 years. It is adult themed though, so I'm not sure how much detail I can go into other than it is titled: VY: A Beginning And An End, it is based in real world Earth, with a dystopian storyline revolving around a global pandemic caused by a virus that attacks the Y-chromosome specifically. It's not your typical male fun orgy kind of story though, so if anyone wants to check it out. I've gotten roughly 70% of the book written so far, so there is plenty of material to read.

    Here's a link to what I've published online so far:

  • I definitely want to do a deep dive in some of Sanderson's work. Fantasy is my favorite lit style.  Rereading the Sandman in my absolute editions after binging the show when it came out.  Neil makes me want to write. 

  • I just finished watching Black Bird on Apple+, so of course now I want to read In with the Devil: a Fallen Hero, a Serial Killer, and a Dangerous Bargain for Redemption by James Keane. The show was amazing.
