I just finished Star Trek: Destiny, pretty good if you like that sort of thing. It is one large book that used to be 3 books.

Currently reading Dracula. When that's finished, I'll be moving onto Jane Eyre.

If you end up liking Jane Eyre, definitely read Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys after. If gives you a whole different perspective on Jane Eyre.

Just finished The Good Girl by Mary Kubica for my book club. Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about it...haha. It has a lot of twists and turns with a surprise ending.

If anyone hasn't read the book S. by Doug Dorst and J.J. Abrams, you should! It's really fun and interesting. It's a bit difficult to read because of the bizarre format, but the intricacies are fun to dive into. I'm still working my way through the meat of the book and will be rereading all of the notes afterwards.

The Gunslinger by Stephen King. Not a huge King fan but can't resist anything with elements of horror, fantasy, and spaghetti western.

I plowed through and finished that book but I didn't enjoy it. I even started with the second book in the Dark Tower series and stopped half way through. It had an interesting concept but it just wasn't a good read. Well... not for me. I spoke to others about this series and they said it gets better later on.

I guess even Stephan King had to start somewhere. I'm glad his writing improved.

I'm reading "Under the Dome" by Stephen King right now, such a cool concept and well written. Has anyone seen the tv series? My brother watched it and said it was awful haha. Just curious for general opinion.

Wouldn't be surprised. With the exception of the Shining, most of his adaptions on screen are complete flops.

I was reading the last of the hunger games that one of my first grade middle school girls lent me. Yes she is at that level and has also read all the Harry Potter series. I gave her the first and second books in the series and she read them and then bought the last one which I did not read. Unfortunately, it was taking me so long to read it that she needed it back. I will now get it when she is done with it. Haha...she is quicker than I am...ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
