Gone Girl was a page turner, but I was kind of disappointed with the ending.

I read a sample of "The Joy of X" about math, but even two chapters left me confused.

Now I'm trying to find "Android for Dummies."

I've been on a Ruth Rendell bender, but I'm hoping to get off soon.

I just read "What Alice forgot" for my book club. I really enjoyed it! It was funny and I finished it in 3 days which is a record for me cause I hardly have time to read.

The Room by Emma Donoghue - unusual. Good. Now I've just started her Slammerkin, which is totally different from the other, though I can't yet judge as to whether it's in a good or bad way - the former, I think and hope.

I just finished both Julie Hyzy's Manor House and Whitehouse Chef series - light, escapist mysteries.

Just happened on her on Amazon because I was looking for a Diane Mott Davidson book, and the Whitehouse Chef series has recipes as all DMD's Goldy books do, so they popped up as recommendations.

American Psycho. It's as exhausting to read as the movie was to watch. Don't get me wrong. I really like it! It's just tiring to read that constant swirl of endless dialogue.

I read The Phantom of the Opera the other day.

Um, prepare for a mini-rant, here. No spoilers, 'course.

So, A, I didn't know it was a book initially. I thought it was a play, adapted into a movie. Actually, it's a book adapted into a play which was adapted into a movie.

B, it's only 150 pages long. That threw me off a lot considering what the story is even in it's essence, y'know?

If nothing else, I'm VERY impressed that the author was able to cram THAT much story into 150 pages without it reading like it was crammed into a small number of pages.

In the back of my head, I'm comparing this to the movie, y'know?

C, the characters are not even the same people. Except maybe the two men who bought the opera house...but it's night and day difference.

Lastly...the phantom (who is referred to as the "opera ghost" in the book, which I thought was weird) is very very genuinely scary unlike he is in the movie. It's pretty sick, and a lot of stuff that you don't expect happens...

Just, wow.

I just finished the 13th book of the 14 book "Wheel of Time" series. It was great! The series bogged down in the middle and then the original author died, so another author finished up the series with the original author's notes. Apparently the last book is great too, but I never read a series straight through.

Next up - "The Ocean at the End of the Lane," by Neil Gaiman.
