    Let's build something Together Prestigious

    Reading Magnus Bane Chronicles so I can move over to the the dark artifices series/Lady Midnight. Then it's back to the Outlander series, which is as heavily detailed and thick as A Song of Ice and Fire X-(

    Currently reading Kill 'Em and Leave: Searching for James Brown and the American Soul by James McBride. About 1/3 of the way through it and it's a good read so far.

    Rogue Lawyer - John Grisham

    I thought this book was a good read if your into a legal drama book. The last 25 pages to end it were dissapointing, felt like it didnt tie up the book at all.

    Currently reading Richard Bransons ' The Virgin Way ' - It is fairly interesting

    The past few suspense books I've read I have figured out whodunit before getting halfway through the book. Does anyone have any recommendations of books that caught you off guard?

    Haven't read it myself, but someone I trust told me "You're Next" by Gregg Hurwitz is amazing and has an ending that you never see coming.

    Currently reading Lost Stars by Claudia Gray and it's fantastic. Hard book to put down if you're a Star Wars fan in any capacity.

    @Garrett L. Do you know anything about Daniel Arenson's Dawn of the Dragons trilogy? I was recced it and picked it up cheap.

    I've never heard of him before. All of his books have mid to upper 3 star ratings on Goodreads, though, if you keep track of those sorts of things.

    Yeah looking into it more, sounds like he's more of an indie author. He has 5 trilogies set in the same world so if it's good I'm going to be really happy, lol. The first trilogy is normally like $25 but its on sale for 2.99...can't say no to that.

    About a 1/3 of the way into Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal and thus far it is my favorite read of the year.

    I've plugged my book review blog in the Book Lists thread, but I'm really proud of this review of Stephen King's 11/22/63 so I wanna bump it here as well.

    I'm a loner Dottie, a rebel

    I read Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston a few weeks ago and can't stop thinking about it. Heavy subject matter but beautifully written characters

    I also finished Dark Places by Gillian Flynn 2 days ago and am still freaking out about it

    @Garrett L. Good review on Ready Player One. I'm glad to see you enjoyed it so much!

    That loneliness is not a function of solitude.

    Well I'm a little over 3/4 done with Infinite Jest. Started in January. Totally worth it, but sometimes a bit of a chore. Hoping there is a payoff of some sort at the end. Don't get the vibe that it's building up to any kind of big conclusion though.

    Thanks @Vivatoto! It was a blast of a "read" (I listened to the audiobook, amusingly read by Wil Wheaton himself). Looking forward to the movie for sure!
