    3. Yes, thank goodness for Goodreads. It's the only way I can keep up with what I've read when I have to list books.

    It was alright. I love Tremblay's novels but his short stories are a mixed bag. A lot of the time they're just weird and you're not sure what's going on or what the point is. There are a few good ones though.

    That's a pretty good summary. I read about half of Growing Things and returned it to library. There are plenty of writers who write "weird fiction" better than Tremblay.

    3. Yes, thank goodness for Goodreads. It's the only way I can keep up with what I've read when I have to list books.
    So sorry for the delay Amanda. Apparently I haven't been in this thread since July!

    1. Nope, this was my third time reading them actually

    2. After consulting goodreads it looks like I gave it 3 stars. I remember thinking it was enjoyable and a quick read, but maybe a bit dry in parts. I did enjoy it a lot more than the movie since it went into more detail. But it was definitely not as flashy as the film.

    3. Yes, as I was updating my list I forgot about half the books I read this year

    Heather, don't tell me you waited until now to read Dark Matter!

    Also, I picked up a copy of Scary Stories in B&N last month thinking I might give it a read and was surprised to see the stories that I flipped through were only a couple pages long. Is that accurate of the whole book? I thought they would've been novel-length.

    Also, also, how was The Institute now that you finished?

    Oh no way! I read it when it first came out I picked it for our bookclub so I reread it to refresh my memory.

    And yes, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark are a bunch of really, really short stories. It was interesting reading them now because a lot of them are quite morbid for young kids.

    I enjoyed The Institute. It started off strong for me but then the ending was a little lackluster. I'd probably rate it about average for a King book. I have a feeling it's going to become a very unmemorable book for me. Have you started it yet?

    No, I haven't started it yet. I think after Christmas. All of my time that I'd usually spend reading I've been using for writing, so I'm hoping to get back into the swing soon.

    And I should've known you'd read Dark Matter already.

    Glad to hear the writings going good. And I think you'll enjoy the book. Do you ever do audiobooks? It's a great way to get to books when you don't have the time to sit down and read.

    And there's only a couple Blake Crouch books I haven't read. The serial killer ones. I read the first but it just wasn't my thing so I never continued. I have been thinking about maybe reading the rest though.

    No, I wish I could but I just can't concentrate on audiobooks. I end up thinking about something else or my eyes wander around the room, so I need to have the physical book in front of me.

    And I think the only Crouch I've read were the Pines trilogy, Run, Dark Matter, and Recursion. Any other favorite standalones that you'd recommend?

    Those are my favorites. I also really enjoyed his collection of short stories Fully Loaded, and the book Draculas which he co-wrote with 3 other authors. That was a fun, fast paced read. As for his other novels Abandon was good, but I'd rank it a bit below the ones you read, but it was still a solid book.
