"The Four Doors" by Richard Paul Evans
I've been relying on the library more and more, just to cut down on expenses (plus, I can't help it, I love libraries), but I picked up Tolkein's Unfinished Tales for Christmas.
As much I love LOTR, I'm finding it very hard to get through. Parts of the stories read fine, but then I feel like I'm slogging through an encyclopedia entry. I think I've developed a threshold for corollary information, in terms of what background info I really want/need. :wblol:
The Enduring Flame trilogy by Mercedes Lackey & James Mallory
Secrets of an Unholy War by Hideyuki Kikuchi (#20 in the Vampire Hunter D series):hmwink:
That JJ Abrams metafictional novel, whatever it's called. It's still shrink wrapped cause it'll be some time before i find some time to read it and I don't want to lose any bits before I do.
A couple of books I got for Christmas:
"Prairie Tale: A Memoir" by Melissa Gilbert
"Confessions of a Prairie *****: How I Survived Nellie Olsen and Learned to Love Being Hated" by Allison Arngrim
The Monuments Men by Robert Edsel and Brett Witter
Princess Behaving Badly by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie
The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin
Just bought (and finished) Bellville, Georgia: The First Hundred Years by Pharris DeLoach Johnson and am now reading Under the Southern Cross: Soldier Life with Gordon Bradwell and the Army of Northern Virginia, edited by Pharris DeLoach Johnson. The first was excellent and the second, so far, is excellent.
Went down to a local used book store to get a copy of "Red Sonja #4; Endithor's Daughter" by David C. Smith & Richard L. Tierney that I saw eariler. I then browsed and ended up adding a couple of other paperbacks to my purchase, these by Andrew J. Offutt, based on the covers. "King Dragon" and "My Lord Barbarian". High pulp fantasy is a new area for me outside Edgar Rice Burroughs, so experimenting a bit. Have my eye on the large "Coming of Conan the Cimmerian" book I saw at Barnes and Noble, but not yet (haven't been able to find Conan in the used book store scene or the local Library branch, and trying to lay off Amazon.com for now)
Empire of the 'B's history of Empire Pictures.
The Duppy by Anthony C Winkler. A Jamaican author, very funny stuff.
I ended up picking up and starting "Coming of Conan the Cimmerian" (The collection of the first Robert E. Howard Conan tales). Spending more time in the He-Man.org forums have resparked my Sword and Sorcery love, so looking at the modern original.
"Never Go Back" By Lee Child. I have all the Jack Reacher books now.
Well I did order "Batman Vol. 3: Death of the Family" on Amazon but it came when I was out of the house and my puppy got a hold of it... :hmshift:
Oh well I guess I'll just have to order it again :hmsad:
Eagerly awaiting my order of the second volume of Robert E. Howard's Conan tales, "The Bloody Crown of Conan".
My last group of books I've bought:
Attachment 93289 This book is apparently set between Alien and Aliens, and it baffled me how they expected us to believe Ellen Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo has anything to do with this book. The author actually does a very good job with the story and explaining Ripley.
Attachment 93288 Great addition to the Grimm story, set around the second season episodes between "The Waking Dead" and "Good Night, Sweet Grimm"
Attachment 93287 Haven't started this yet, though I'm about to.
Don't buy much mangas, but just got the second volume of Okayado's "Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls". Had a great time reading the first one a few months ago, and found this one just as entertaining, though feels quicker.
The Kingdom of the Cults by Walter Martin
The God Who Is There by Francis Schaeffer
