  1. Wow, Fuminori Nakamura seems like a promising read.
    I will be eager for your take on it!

    As for Powell's Indiespensable, I will have to check that out!

  2. Looks like you're going to be doing some scary reads now. I got Palace of Spies for review. It looks good.

  3. I really want to read that Joe Hill book. Not that I dont' have plenty to read! I'm a new GFC follower.
    Check out my STS

  4. I currently have to read:

    "Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore" by Robin Sloan: Excited to read! I think the only other book-related books I've read were "The Book Thief" and "The Shadow of the Wind," and I loved them. I want to read "Libriomancer" too. Books about books are fun! :]

    "Vicious" by V.E. Schwab. A book on two med students who discover that you're able to get superpowers with near-death experience, so they set up suicides from which they can be resurrected. I think they both end up with superpowers, but things don't go well. It's a unique take on superpowers.

    "Eye of the Minds," by James Dashner. I've been on the fence about reading "Maze Runner." When I heard about this book (a dystopian about gamers and cyber terrorists), I thought it was a better match for my tastes and might be a better introduction to the author.
