The Midnight Assassin. I love true crime stories, and there is no finer author of such than Skip Hollandsworth.

Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout. It's part of her Covenant series. I like her stuff a lot. Finished her Lux series last year.


I would love to read The Magicians. The TV show is awesome and like someone mentioned here I really don't care for Quentin. In the series his hair drives me nuts. After that it's just every single self righteous bone in his body. I imagine he's like that in the books as well.

Malice by John Gwynne. It's the first book in a new fantasy series. If you like epic fantasy along the lines of Sword of Shannara or LOTR then I highly recommend this book.

Unlikeable, by Edward Klein. Slightly outdated now, but still interesting.

Anyone interested in mysteries, try Nevada Barr.
She writes a series with a park ranger fighting everything from coyotes to mass murderers in parks all over the US. You get fires, pack rats, misplaced cows, loony photographers, you name it, she will rescue something every seventh page.
It's not really bad. Right now I'm chasing a wacko around the Statue of Liberty.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

On my reading list for October:

A re-read of "A Walk Through the Woods" by Bill Bryson.

And, a new book, "Turn Right At Macchu Picchu: Rediscovering the Lost City One Step at a Time", by Mark Adams.
