Talk nerdy to me! I'm currently reading Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. Though my only copy of a Harry Potter book is the first volume . . . in Latin.

I was on a road trip the other day and stopped in a B&N to get a Starbuck's. On a whim I stopped by the new releases to see if there was anything new from Harlan Coben on the shelf. His latest, "Fool me Once" just happened to be there. I'll be getting started on it right away!

I found a lot of interesting bits in Cryptonomicon, but it was such a sprawl of a book I also got aggravated by it .... I hope you have more patience for the diversions and side stories than I did!

Yeah, it's definitely a picaresque novel in the old style. You have to enjoy that sort of thing. But you're talking to the gal who zipped through War and Peace and loved every minute! I guess for me, books like that are almost a cross between a novel and a short story collection, and therefore easy to dip in and out of. That said, the length alone is intimidating! But I enjoyed Anathem, which was a similar length, and also not super tightly structured.

I'd have to agree with you Tad, Neil Stephenson is a very wordy fella. He diverts into strangely detailed backstories and tangents that really don't have a lot to do with the plot and serve no purpose other than to pad things up. Still, it's been a good read so far!

Recently...

Stilletto by Daniel O'Malley... Second in the series that started with 'The Rook'

The original was a strong premise/setting with a few weaknesses in the writing. Stilletto was a worthwhile followup, it built on the setting, developed the characters, despite giving them a back seat to new ones, and gave us a fresh take on everything we thought we knew... and I think the author has really found his voice.

The Purloined Poodle by Kevin Hearn. A novella from Hearn's Iron druid series.
Told from Oberon's Point of view, the novella see's him convince the Iron Druid, Atticus, to investigate the theft of a number of showdogs.
I've recently realised that while I love the setting and worldbuilding for Hearn's series... the protagonists are a shower of arseholes. Except for Oberon, who is an Irish Wolfhound.

The Black Company, Glen Cook's classic military fantasy, following the exploits of a mercenary company in the employ of the bad guys...

I really enjoyed the first five or six of them that I read. Admittedly my interest waned after that.

I'm currently working on Bradbury's FAHRENHEIT 451...yeah, it's decades old and still relevant as hell today!

Plus it's one of the reasons I chose librarianship as a profession.

It did hit a rough patch in the middle, but I thought the last couple were really good.

=======================

Wife and I have been reading the "Souless" series. As Wikipedia puts it: "Soulless is a steampunk paranormal romance novel by Gail Carriger" It is complete fluff, the sort of book you dash through quickly, frequently giggling and always eager to find out how things play out. A side bonus for me is that , the main character is apparently of somewhat more than stylish proportions and rather definite on the subject of getting fed regularly. Side bonus for some others may be that there are plenty of hunky werewolves who regularly find themselves without clothes after changing back to human, while others may enjoy the very dandyish vampire, while yet others may enjoy the charming dimples on the inventor lady who has a crush on the main character ....

I liked Carringer's Parasol Protectorate too... as you say, unapologetic fluff, the prequel and sequel series are fun too.

I recently started reading Odd Girl Out on my therapist's recommendation. It's about aggression and bulllying in girls.

Just started From Hell by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell. It's huuuge. But I'm digging it so far.

I was gifted the Mr. Mercedes trilogy so I just started the third one, Stephen King's End of Watch. I haven't read fiction for approx 3 yrs, so it's been interesting for me to get away from my usual arena.
