Handshakes' 2023 Challenge

Muokkaaja: heinäkuu 19, 2:13 am

Hello everyone. I've never read 50 books in a year before, and I could definitely use some encouragement! So... despite being behind last year, I was able to rally toward the finish-line and complete my original 12 book goal. I'm gonna shoot for a "little" bit more this year. I'm also considering the A-Z challenge in which I pick at least one title that starts which each letter of the alphabet. Wish me luck!

1. Revival by Stephen King ★★★★☆
2. Brain by Robin Cook ★★★★★
3. City of Glass by Paul Auster ★★★☆☆
4. Mortal Fear by Robin Cook ★★★★☆
5. Point Omega by Don DeLillo ★★★☆☆
6. Running Wild by J.G. Ballard ★★★☆☆
7. The Deep by Peter Benchley ★★★★☆
8. By His Grace by Dada Mukerjee ★★★★☆
9. The Forgotten Room by Lincoln Child ★★★★☆
10. The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton ★★★★★
11. Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland ★★★★★
12. Deep Fathom by James Rollins ★★★★★
13. Tick Tock by Dean Koontz ★★★★☆

Just finished The Forgotten Room by Lincoln Child. It was pretty good!

Just reread The Andromeda Strain. Just as good as before, if not better.

maaliskuu 24, 10:25 pm

Just reread Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland. Way better the second time around!

>10 handshakes: Ooh, I should read that one again too. My all-time favourite of his is Microserfs.

>11 rabbitprincess: Girlfriend in a Coma is my all-time favorite. I've read all of his works and I'm making my way through a second time. Microserfs was a great one for me; definitely gave me a glimpse into the mid 90s (from an adult's perspective). I enjoyed JPod, his "follow-up" novel as well. It's too bad he didn't do another one after JPod to comment on the crazy technology we have now. I'm sure he'd have some wonderful stuff to say!
