What I've Read

Haven't finished anything new just yet.

What I'm Reading

LISEY’S STORY by Stephen King: Yes, I am still reading this. I really like Lisey, and I love the way her history with her husband unfolds throughout the story, in pieces and present thoughts and scenes set back in what she remembers, but it is really slow paced and easy to put down, so it is taking forever.

TREASURES, DEMONS AND OTHER BLACK MAGIC by Meghan Ciana Doidge: I think I'm at least going to finish the first trilogy. I don't know if I'll continue it after. We'll see how much annoyance at the main character's "quirky" traits (and my dislike of first person narrators) balances against the stuff I do enjoy. So far, the stuff I enjoy is losing out, but maybe once I'm done with the cliffhanger ending, I'll like it more.

MR MERCEDES by Stephen King: In the middle of my traveling, I decided I needed entertainment that wasn't electronic-based, and so I grabbed a copy of a Stephen King I hadn't yet read. So far, I like it a lot; I'm about a quarter of the way through, and I like the main character, the retired detective, far more than I expected. I generally hate bad guy point of views in books like this, but it's not terrible here.

What I'll Read Next

DARK ALCHEMY by Laura Bickle (Dark Alchemy #1): I'm trying to avoid buying new books this year, except for a few favorite authors, but someone recommended the second book in the series to me recently, and I bought this book immediately. It sounds like western + magic + kick ass women, and I am here for that so hard. SO HARD.

I read and loved Mr. Mercedes. I read the sequel, too, and enjoyed it for different reasons. :)

Really good series, so far, imo.

And, if you ever want to listen to the audible book, the narrator is EXCELLENT.

I enjoyed Mr. Mercedes and its sequel, even though they are very un-King-like King books.
