Just finished this one off, supposedly one of his weaker works but it ticked a lot of my Urban Fantasy boxes and I loved every page.

Since I just learned Iain Banks is dying, I'm going to start one of his books again. I don't know which yet, but I think maybe Espedair Street.

Love this series. Good book, but the first two were better.

Has anyone read Wicked yet?

I'm intrigued, but I've heard a lot of mixed reviews...

Finally reading this:

It's a captivating book, that is not without faults. To me, the best parts of the book were those that covered the 70's through the early 00's (my prime comic reading time). At the end of the day, it really hasn't changed my views of anyone in the industry (I'm still a big fan of Jim Shooter and what he did at Marvel). But it was very interesting to interpose my own memories of the comics and the personalities with the inside view given by the book.

Just finished Battle Royale (the precursor to Hunger Games, without the humanity) and I really liked it.

Starting John Steakley's "Armor" next.

Here has been my reading for the last few months:

Currently Reading:
Image A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3) George R.R. Martin

Read:
Image Chocolat (Chocolat, #1) Joanne Harris
Really enjoyed it more that I thought I would as a book since I loved the movie.

Image Horns Joe Hill
First Joe Hill novel I've read and enjoyed it a lot.

Image The Name of the Star (Shades of London #1) Maureen Johnson

ImageThe Spear of Destiny (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts, #3) Marcus Sedgwick
So far best of the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who e-books.

Image Visions of Sugar Plums (A Stephanie Plum Between the Numbers/Holiday Novel, #1) Janet Evanovich

Image To the Nines (Stephanie Plum, #9) Janet Evanovich

Image Trees and Forest: A Mystery David Y. B. Kaufmann
Do not read this book! Paul Levitz recommended it on Facebook as the author is a friend, and it was awful. I'm still scared that I actually read the whole thing.

ImageDiary of a Wimpy Kid (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, #1) Jeff Kinney
Well since my kid reads this book I might as well get an idea what it is about. All I can said the Wimpy Kid is really a big dick.

ImageMercury Falls Robert Kroese

Image The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1) Stieg Larsson
Intense book, not sure if I will ever go back and read it again but wow it was good.

Image The Nameless City (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts, #2) Michael Scott

Image Shutter Island Dennis Lehane
Next to Jurassic Park and Timeline I think I have a new favorite book. First time reading, and never saw the film so nothing was spoiled and it was worth it!

ImageHard Eight (Stephanie Plum, #8) Janet Evanovich

ImageDodger Terry Pratchett

Neito,

I keep on seeing Howl's Moving Castle on your good reads. Is it any good or worth pursuing the series?
