    Agree on I Am Legend. Have you read Liu yet? I plan on Tackling Three Body pretty soon.

    The Three Body Problem is good. I still have to read the remaining two in the series.

    same with me as Joe stated. I read the three body problem and stopped after that book even though i really enjoyed the premise and the book itself. Part of me thinks that i just read too damn much and my tastes and wants of the "read next" pile are fickle and change on a whim. i feel like i enjoyed the sci fi parts of the three body problem more that the communist party/ historical backstory that was interspersed through the novel, but i eventually got used to that too and kind of thought it was interesting. i put the trilogy down simply because i never got the next book from the library which is how i read a lot of stuff that i dont own. I have a set of the Sub press s/n le's, so i guess i better finish reading the trilogy.

    Similar here. I will get to book 2 and 3 eventually but my TBR is deep and ever growing.

    I encourage you all to continue the series. The first is good, but it's really setting things up for the later volumes. Personally, I thought the second book was the strongest.

    Glad to hear you're reading it, Kris. Stay with it; it's worth it.

    Finished up a couple of books recently. A Season With the Witch about Salem in Oct. Enjoyed this one and I'm curious to check out some of his other books now. I saw he has one centered around Poe, so I might seek that one out. Also just finished Mexican Gothic. I enjoyed it although I do wish it was creepier. And currently listening to the audiobook of White Tears by Hair Kunzru.

    So I've been on a Halloween reading frenzy. I had a stack of books set aside that I planned to read, but then of course switched gears and started reading books that took place on or around Halloween instead.

    Harvest Moon by James A Moore - 5/5 Loved this one, great Halloween read, highly recommend

    A Season With the Witch by JW Ocker - 4/5 Made me long to return to Salem for a visit, hopefully next year I can make it out there.

    Apartment 5 is Alive by Russell Atwood - 5/5 This one is by a local author who also happens to run the best little bookshop in our town, It's about an apartment that has a fondness for Halloween. Perfect little Halloween read.

    Torments by Lisa W Cantrell - 5/5 Sequel to The Manse which I read last year, great follow-up. Not quite as good as the first one, but still a great Halloween read.

    Now to decide what to read next...

    You're killing it, Heather!

    I'm over halfway through Rosemary's Baby. It's been a very quick read so far and Ira Levin's writing style is extremely accessible and readable. It's not as overtly scary or horror-ish like I was expecting, though (I guess the second half will lean more into the horror aspects). I'm enjoying it a lot, but it's not quite as good as The Stepford Wives (one of my favorite books).

    Great to hear, I'll probably start it soon, maybe right after Halloween.

    I just picked up Dark Harvest by Norman Partridge and started that one last night. Only 20 pages in but so far so good.

    Has anyone read The Nickel Boys? I thought it was an amazing book. Very timely too. It's a quick read too.

    I was thrilled Donaldson published a second trilogy - devoured the books. And then, not even that long ago, the Last Chronicles - four books!

    Hope you'll enjoy visiting the Land as much as I did.

    Thomas Covenant Chronicles has been on my TBR pile for too long.

    I just finished Falling Angel by William Hjortsberg. It absolutely floored me. One of the best books I’ve read in years and I agree with King’s observation - Chandler meets The Exorcist.
