Wow I have found this old thread! Let's infuse new life to it!

I'm actually reading very different ebooks from Google Play Books.

This week, my choice is The New Gods. A compilation volume composed of issues #1 to #11 of the series of the same name originally published in 1971.

Written and drawn by comic books maestro, Jack Kirby!

I'm currently on a huge Martha Wells kick. Working my way through her absolutely "Murderbot Diaries" (science fiction, with the most intensely human and relatable security android you'll ever meet), and while waiting my turn at them from the library reading through her Raksura series (fantasy, I guess? But on a very different axis from most fantasy, it has more of a science fiction vibe to it, more races of people than I can even remember, and again just wonderful characters). Very definitely 'feel good' reads.

Colleen Hoover’s It Ends With Us. I do not get the hype surrounding Hoover’s books. She doesn’t just paint a picture using angst, she pours the bucket full over the canvas. I usually enjoy a good heavily emotional story, and yet, I still didn’t find myself being drawn in. This is the third Hoover book I’ve tried to read and ended up putting it in my DNF folder.

I know some are saying Stephen King has lost his touch, but I disagree. Just finished Fairy Tale by King and I strongly recommend this one. It wasn’t what I expected, but that’s a positive. Loved this book.

Later today I hope to start Appalachian Horror, a shorty story compilation. It’s supposed to be extremely scary, so it’s definitely spooky season appropriate.

I'm finally reading Neil Gaiman's door stopper of a book American Gods. So far I'm enjoying it, other than being tired from staying awake too late reading it in bed each night.
