Dark Matter | Blake Crouch

Saw a comment from Blake Crouch in regards to the 'Dark Matter' tv series that's being made. Did he just say 'first book'? Is Dark Matter getting a sequel?

The Winners | Fredrik Backman

One of my most anticipated books of the year. I love the Beartown series and I'm sad that it's coming to an end, but I can't wait to dive into this one!

1. Tagged. I purchased a different book on Kindle (The Sacrifice of Lester Yates) and this came up as a similar title and it sounded good!

2. Currently, The Heavens May Fall, but I'm reading Tomorrow, and Tomorrow and Tomorrow right now and it's phenomenal!

3. Austin TX, Panama City Beach FL, Las Vegas NV (I'm not well traveled lol)

Too Many Books! | Gilles Tibo

My wife must love me. She assembled these shelves for my new home office. These are just my TBR shelves. I might have a problem.

Ruthiella She‘s a keeper! 😃 1mo
FortunateSon @Ruthiella She most definitely is. I'm a very lucky man. 1mo

Half Outlaw | Alex Temblador
post image

Kinda shocked that this one has fallen under Litsy's radar. For any ladies that think this might not be for them, take into account that Alex Temblador is a female, as is the main character. When I read the synopsis, I knew it was going to be a must-read for me. I loved Sons of Anarchy, so hopefully this has a similar vibe. I tried looking for other motorcycle club themed books, but sadly, most results led to erotica. Oh well, lol.

Jas16 Well now I am curious. Going to have to see if my library has this one. 2mo

The Heavens May Fall | Allen Eskens
post image
Pickpick

Eskens knocks it out of the park again with this one. An outstanding legal thriller, and for good reason - Eskens was a criminal defense attorney for nearly 30 years. Can't wait to read the next installment in this series!

Crinoline_Laphroaig I've a friend whose Husband loves Legal Thrillers. Will pass this on recommendation on to them. 🙂 2mo

Happy to see this deal on Kindle this morning! I'm a sci-fi addict and this has been on my TBR all year, so to grab it at this price was a steal!

tpixie Thanks this is on my TBR as well 2mo
wanderinglynn Ooh, that sounds intriguing. I‘ll be interested to hear what you think. 2mo
jitteryjane724 Definitely post your thoughts! Looking to get more into sci Fi. 2mo

Going back and forth on which should be my next read. I'm a huge fan of both authors and confident I will enjoy both of them, but one has got to come first. Any suggestions?

Coleen I‘ve only ever read one by Eskens, and that was the one. At the time he was a new-to-me author. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it quite a lot! 2mo
FortunateSon @Coleen I've read 'The Life We Bury' (which was outstanding!) and 'The Guise of Another'. Eskens is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Thanks for the comment! 2mo

Aurora: A Novel | David Koepp
post image
Pickpick

This one has gotten a few negative reviews on Litsy, but I actually enjoyed it a lot. It wasn't the post-apocalyptic fight for survival that I thought it would be. The worldwide blackout serves more as the backdrop to the story, and I think that actually served the book quite well. It's not perfect of course. There were parts of the story that were probably unnecessary, but overall it was an enjoyable read.

Us Against You | Fredrik Backman
post image

An amazing deal right now on Kindle for the second book in the Beartown trilogy. Only $2.99 for the next several days. If you haven't read Beartown or Us Against You, I can't recommend them enough. Fredrik Backman is definitely one of my MUST-READ authors. Get this one before the final installment of the trilogy, The Winners, is released on September 27th!

LKK526 I waffle for some reason to read him. Thanks for the push😃 2mo

The Next Time I Die | Jason Starr
post image
Mehso-so

Imagine you die and wake up in another reality where your personal life is exponentially better. You are loved. You are rich. 9/11 never happened. Trump has never been president and is locked up in prison. Sounds great right? Well, shit spirals out of control real fast, and I don't mean that in a good way.
I went into this with high expectations, and maybe that was part of my problem. Concept was great but the execution was not.

I'm a sucker for novels involving parallel universes, so this one drew me in, and it didn't even need a half naked girl on the cover, but that certainly didn't hurt! 😄🤣

This was a bit of a disappointment. I'm convinced it's as popular as it is for 3 reasons: 1) McNamara died before she could finish it, 2) She was married to a celeb who ensured the book got finished and received plenty of publicity, and 3) the killer was caught shortly after the book's release.

If McNamara were still alive, this book probably would never have been a bestseller. She's a talented writer, but this book is kind of a mess.

Did I mention that I absolutely love Thriftbooks? Got some more goodies today. Now I just have to figure out what I am going to do about shelf space.

tokorowilliamwallace Nice, I checked out Shotgun Lovesongs on audio CD years ago and thought it was clever and humorous, quirky. 2mo

Thriftbooks has been an absolute ADDICTION for me this year. The problem is that it has increased my ability to purchase books at a faster rate than I can read them. Oh well, there are worse addictions to have, I suppose!
