I don't know if I should be blushing or not.
What are you in prison for?
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Entertaining read, but not sure it was worthy of all the hype. Easy read, just long.
Dark Tide by Elizabeth Haynes. Very good crime novel; suspenseful, and a little gruesome.
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. Loved this book. Such a good story.
The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood. Will be getting a copy of Maddaddam in August to finish off the trilogy.
The Accursed by Joyce Carol Oates. A peculiar read. Still, I enjoyed it. Stumbled with some of the dated language, but it couldn't have been written any other way. A bit clattering, tbf. Perhaps I should have read/watched more period literature/film.
The Man from Primrose Lane Loved the story up until the sci-fi bit came to the forefront. On the whole, it only gets a 'meh'.
There are others since the last time I posted in here, but I'm forgetting...
Currently reading The Awakening by Kate Chopin. Might as well give some of the 'classics' a go on occasion (and thankfully it's a short read). Also have Anne Rice's The Witching Hour in the TBR stack. Recommended to me by a roommate. I hope it isn't as woeful as Interview With the Vampire.
Oh dear god.

...I'm never, ever gonna watch gravity - even the trailer looks shit - I'm just not interested in that sort of bollocks.
...as a modifier.
That shit was hella played out playa.
Human Remains by Elizabeth Haynes. Very entertaining, creepy read.
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. Saw it at B&N, remembered watching the movie years ago, and bought it. A good quick read.
Little Children by Tom Perrotta. Again, saw the movie some time ago. Picked up the book at a used bookstore. Was good, but oddly enough, I found the movie much more compelling. Ending in the book was so anticlimactic, while the ending in the movie was far better.
Currently reading The Night Listener by Armistead Maupin. Yep, saw the movie already, but thought it would be a good read nonetheless.
Re: What are you listening to at the moment? (3,915 replies, posted in General Bedrock Discussion)
That rule in the competition is a bit confounding since I received the original and remixes last year as a promo. Buying it would be redundant. It may be a ploy to boost sales/interest, which is all well and good imo, but I wouldn't be too upset if I were to win then get disqualified based on that rule. OK, I would probably be miffed, but it's not like I haven't thought about it.
I've been in a production dry spell for about 6 months and I've only recently started enjoying it again. So, ultimately it was helpful to work on the remix as a way of recharging creativity.
Hmm. Recharging Creativity. Maybe I can sell that one to Christian Paduraru....
Depends on the tracks.
Of the recent books I've read, these were the most entertaining...
The Passage by Justin Cronin. Somewhat King-esque, but less heavy-handed while the characters and plot being evenly detailed. I don't know how I feel about the film rights being purchased by Ridley Scott, but it could easily translate to film. I did pick up the sequel The Twelve but have yet to start it.
Raw by Mark Haskell Smith. Simply, just a fun and humorous read.

The Blondfire tune is one of those guilty pleasures. I like the alt-pop feel of it.

A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin. Fantastic. All caught up now. He'd better finish off The Winds of Winter soon, dammit.
The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood. Very good, but not altogether different than a lot of stories out there. Would make a fair film if done right, though.
The Dinner by Herman Koch. Easy but mediocre read... finished it in one day. Nothing exciting or engrossing happens until about halfway through.
Get them on Maury.

Another really good read from earlier this year: Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt. It's a bit nostalgic... back to the 80's– but without the glamour or glitz– with a slight YA nod. Kinda poetic on the whole.
Still not recorded, as it has to be New York. A "Live in" can't happen without Smallman's attendance.
Going to see him in Boston on Friday night... but I highly doubt it would be that.
Still possible, I suppose.
Currently reading Stephen King's Doctor Sleep (sequel to The Shining). It isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Definitely an entertaining read, but far from cerebral.
Might give this a look, just finished his "22.10.63", a bit of a weird time-travel story back to the JFK assassination.
If you enjoy the time travel thing, try Sean Farrell's The Man in the Empty Suit. Very entertaining.
Has anyone read any of The Dark Tower series? Thinking of giving that a go next, seeing as I enjoyed Doctor Sleep so much.
Read and loved the first three books; I got about 150 pages into Wizard and Glass and it bored the living shit out of me.
