    Yes, it's my second favorite after the Wayward Pines series.

    Has anyone read Dark Places by Gillian Flynn? I'm almost halfway through it. Not enjoying it as much as Gone Girl though.

    Personally, I didn't like it and found it very hard to get through. Nowhere near as good as Wayward Pines, for me. Out of the 5 books of his I've read (Pines, Wayward, The Last Town, Run, and Dark Matter), Run is the only one I haven't liked.

    You know, I kept hearing the same thing from online reviews/comparisons. Seems like DP is the least "popular" of her three books.

    I just read Sharp Objects a couple weeks ago and absolutely loved it (way more than I thought I would). I also liked it a lot more than Gone Girl, too. Can't wait to finally start the TV show.

    Many thanks to those of you who have recommended Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles.
    I'm enjoying it immensely.

    Dark Matter was a great one. Other than it and the Wayward Pines series, I've not read any other Blake Crouch books, but man! He can really hook you with his stories.

    Agreed on Dark Matter! I loved that one.

    Currently reading The President Is Missing, and it is much better than it has any right to be. I wasn't expecting to enjoy it this much. Perfect summer thriller/page-turner and I'm finding the character of the president to be pretty damn good.

    I'm reading The Jack Vance Treasury by Jack Vance, duh.

    I've ordered signed copies of new books by Tim Powers and Cixin Liu. Powers is constantly steady (in quality if not in quantity), and Liu is IMO the most exciting SF writer in at least ten years.

    Just finished Run by Blake Crouch last night. Very intense with a lot of brutality in it. It was good, but I liked Dark Matter better. Now on to Fully Loaded. I always seem to read authors in threes for some reason. By the time I finish the third I am usually ready to move on to another author.

    I read it a long time ago and was super disappointed in the resolution. It's one of those "you gotta be kidding me" endings. I'd say skip it.

    Finished The Three-Body Problem and am now diving into The Dark Forest (on audio). Quite a different kind of book from the first, but I think I like it even better.
