Current Reading List

I have quite a stack to get through but I keep seeing more fabulous titles & just can’t resist adding more. So far I have:
– The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan. – a vampire trilogy I believe that’s caused by a virus.
– The Catcher In The Rye by Salinger – the classic that I’ve never read & want to.
– The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton – a period novel with a paranormal twist based around a dolls house & the life like miniatures made for it. I know this one is going to freak me out but it sounds awesome.
– The Twelve by Justin Cronin – this is the sequel to The Passage, another vampire trilogy based on a virus. They are notoriously difficult to get into aa they start off so obscure you have no idea what’s going on.
– Under The Skin by Michel Faber – I believe is about a femal serial killer. It’s also a movie starring Scarlet Johanson.
– Panic by Jeff Abbott – I’ve read several of his books, crime based murder mystery, very fast paced. This one is about a kid that comes home to his dead mother & missing father & everything he thought he knew is turned upside down.

There will be reviews as I complete each one.

  1. The Catcher is worth the hype. It’s commonly misunderstood though. It’s probably an extended metaphore about Salinger’s shellshock and experience of seeing the German death camps. Notice how death is all over that novel.
