    I'm so jealous of anyone experiencing the Wayward Pines series for the first time. Such great books.

    Currently reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. While it's been pretty fun so far, I've hit a bump and am struggling to finish it at the moment.

    I plan to. I've made it too far to quit now.
    I don't fault the book for me hitting a reading slump, because I have enjoyed it up until this point. The book is pretty damn brilliant, to be honest.

    Awesome Lincoln, thanks. I'll look out for that one.
    I agree with the rec 100%. From what I've seen on other boards, people are really into Barron or they can't stand him. I'm in the first category. I'm not a fanboy though, X's for Eyes was just too obnoxious, I couldn't even get through the entire novella. The Beautiful Thing is his best work IMO.

    Brian Hodge is similar to Barron in a sense that he's wordy and does fine sentence architecture. His writing is a touch more straight forward so if Barron is too nebulous, give Hodge a try. He writes mostly short stories and novellas. CD published his latest collection called Picking the Bones. His e-books are dirt cheap on Amazon.

    Reading: A Case of Conscience by James Blish. After that is High-Rise by Ballard and then new Gaiman and Hill. I'd like to say I randomly pick what I'm reading, but my next few months are already planned out (I group books by a theme).

    Just picked up The Two Towers this morning. Hoping to crank through this one quicker than Fellowship. Really want to get back to some SK after this series.

    Trying to read Ghost Story by Straub but I'm struggling to get anywhere. Put it to the side for now. There are plenty of King books I still need to get to. Started on BOBD last night until my BCE of EOW arrives next week. Although most don't seem to be fans; I love the Hodges series so far and can't wait to dig in!

    Webstar, have you read A Head Full of Ghosts yet? That's one that I just read last year and really enjoyed.

    I just looked up the Wayward Pines trilogy because I have never heard of it before and it sounds AMAZING. I'm a giant Twin Peaks fan, so I'm so excited to start this soon. Thanks guys!

    Also, Amanda, I recently read the first 4 Hitchhiker's books and while I was really enjoying them, for some reason I just couldn't finish and had to walk away. I will eventually read the rest, but I'm just not motivated to do it. And it's weird, because like I said, I like them!

    You should avoid Wayward Pines spoilers at all costs, if you can!

    I really liked The Fireman and End of Watch. I could not put Wayward Pines down - read all three in four days, in between family, studying and my job. Best read so far in 2016 for me. Need to get to City of Mirrors but I'm afraid that I'll need to reread Passage and Twelve first. Maybe I'll start with The Fifth Heart instead...

    I agree. Luckily I read it before the tv show. I'm assuming you haven't seen it yet, and if not I'd hold off until you read the books. The surprises in the story are really good, and it'd be better if nothing was spoiled beforehand.

    I hope the trend continues

    I guess after I finish The Fireman I should finally start with The Passage.

    Just read the David Eddings Belgariad stuff. Belgariad, Mallorean, Belgarath and Polgara. Really enjoyed them but the last one started to get a bit tiring towards the end. Still - a good set of 12 books!

    Changing tack a bit now - just started Stephen Baxter's "Time's Tapestry" series - No1. Emperor. I've really enjoyed his alternative history stuff in the past so fingers crossed.
