    Hunting parties seem rather old-fashioned too, but I have only just started reading the story.

    Read a ton lately. Here are the highlights:

    Me - Elton John: So, so boring. Just didn't enjoy it. Maybe it was the writing style, maybe it was the content but I didn't care for it.

    God, If You're Not There, I'm Fucked - Darrell Hammond: tough read but very well written. I had no idea he was as messed up as he was/is. He pulled no punches when discussing his childhood abuse and the resulting addiction issues. Highly recommended if you're an SNL fan.

    Backlash - Brad Thor: one of the best thrillers I've ever read, hands down. It's #19 in a series but could easily be picked up and read on its own. Would make a great movie, that's for sure.

    I just bought a new book based on the Creepshow movies/series. It contains two original stories. It's short, around 200 pages so I'm hoping this will kickstart my love of reading again.

    Greg Nicotero is a big name to have.
    It should be good.

    May not seem like a big deal to most, but I read a whole chapter today and I'm very happy. For 10 or so years I've been wanting to read again but never managed to catch the bug. I downloaded reading helper app, and I type in the book name and how many pages, and you put in the date you want to finish and it tells you how many pages you'd need to read a day. I'm going to start on a book a month for a couple of months and then gradually try to read a book a week.

    Finished my book. It had a couple of stories in it. Very easy read, probably for young adults, but it was fine for me because I haven't read a book in a good 10+ years. Will hope to start another book today.

    I've been reading the same book for 4 years.

    Nothing wrong with polishing off a kid's book. If that's what you're into.

    Cemetery Road - Greg Iles

    What. A. Book. I’d argue it’s flawless. It didn’t end the way I wanted it to but the ending was perfect. I can’t recommend this book enough. Between his Natchez Burning trilogy and now this, that’s four amazing works in a row from Iles.

    10/10.

    It's nice when a book leaves questions unanswered sometimes.

    Wrapped up "Wonderland" and thought it was pretty great, very suspenseful, a bit repetitive. (4/5)

    Black Flamingo - Amazing. (5/5)

    I am now on "Get A Life Chloe Brown"
