    I finished Christina Dalcher's Vox last night. I wanted to love it, and I did for like the first half, and then I didn't. But it was still a good read so I'm giving it 3 out of 5 Viking stars. ;)

    I have Zoje Stage's Baby Teeth ready for pickup at my library but I can't get there until tomorrow, so I'm starting Joe Hill's Strange Weather because a) I liked Heart Shaped Box and NOS4A2 and b) I like short fiction.

    I finished The Tattooist of Auschwitz. I didn't realize that it was based on a true story, until the end. It was really good.
    Now I am reading Shadow of the Wind, which was a Book Bub recommendation.

    I just finished Paul Tremblay's The Cabin at the End of the World; it was pretty good but the ending was kind of unsatisfying. I started Vox by Christina Dalcher over the weekend.

    i think everything he's written so far has had an ambiguous ending, though I did still like the overall story of Cabin at least.

    have you read A Head Full of Ghosts by him yet? If not i'd recommend it completely. The ending in that one works really well.

    @iMago thanks for the rec! I enjoyed A Head Full of Ghosts immensely.

    Just finished When Breath Becomes Air
    Now reading The Alchemist

    The Alchemist is considered by many, a masterpiece. I didn't like it all that much. Just couldn't decide what made it so popular. If you'd like, let me know what you think when you're done.

    have started reading the Witcher series, and to be honest, so far, its one of the dullest things i've ever read. im trying to muscle through it because i wanna watch the show with Cavill when it comes out finally and not be lost, but idk if i'll make it.
