Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane.

It is a direct sequel to Gone Baby, Gone which is my favorite of the Patrick and Angie novels written.

Just finished Mary Shelley's Frankenstein a second time for schoolwork (did this in school back in my O'Levels, not surprised to do it again now). I have to say, it's really not as juvenile as most teachers try to place it. I have a new-found respect for anxiety now

Started reading John Grisham's The Innocent Man tonight. His objective prose style says a lot of his Hemingway influences. It's a very fast and engrossing read by the way, with all the seriousness of a documentary (hey I do like it! Otherwise I wouldn't be reading it!)

Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut

Walks the line between funny and sad in the best kind of way. I actually enjoyed it more than Slaughterhouse-Five.

I have been wanting to read that one for a long time. Slaughterhouse Five is easily one of the best novels I have ever read. My hopes are high for Mother Night!

I recently finished Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton. I was kinda drawn to "I don't date vampires, I kill them" on the back cover but I didn't really get into it. It was Ok, I didn't want to stop reading it, but it wasn't the best thing I've read. I've started the second one, The Laughing Corpse, simply because I had it and I wanted to give Hamilton another chance to impress. In the first chapter she repeated a lot of information that was in the first book, and it was almost verbatim.

Before Hamilton's books, the last book that I really enjoyed was Frostbitten by Kelley Armstong.

Excellent expansion on the 'verse, in my opinion.

The Anita Blake books get better as they go along, lol.

I just finished Mania by Craig Larson. Got it as a free eBook and it was riveting.
