Finished reading Mutation by Robin Cook. ⭐⭐⭐ – Barely three stars, really. Interesting premise but predictable.

December 4, 2019

Finished my first ever Sherlock Holmes book — The Hound of Baskervilles. A fun read. The attention to detail is hilarious. I will likely read another in a few months. Recommendations welcome. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Finished Leonard da Vinci by Walter Isaacson. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ A worthy read. da Vinci was a very interesting person. Isaacson lays it on pretty thick when describing his paintings though. Other than that, so many lessons to tease out of it.

July 10, 2019

Finished Watchers by Dean Koontz. ⭐⭐⭐ – Odd. Seemed like two stories in one and oversimplified narrative. But, it had a few tense moments.

Finished Outbreak by Robin Cook. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Good: Fast paced, easy read, female heroine. Meh: Predictable, love subplot, a few overt racist terms.

I was informed by a friend on Facebook that the book I just finished, Flatland, is available as a movie on YouTube. And it’s trippy.

November 19, 2018

Finished Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin A. Abbott. ⭐⭐⭐ A clear commentary on social, political, and spiritual topics. Aside from that I enjoyed how deep the author explained the world they created.

I read a chapter of Hitchhiker’s Guide each day at lunch. I can’t recall ever laughing out loud this much at any other book.

Finished reading I’ll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara ★★★★. Riveting, if not sickening, stuff.

Picked up The Abyss special edition at the local library (the only place I could find it) and re-watched it after having just finished the book. So good. This is the only novel that I can say works as a companion and enhances the experience so much. Thanks library.

After a few unintentional weeks off from reading books I dived back into one last night. Felt good. I’d like to read 24 books this year. I think I read about 16 last year. 📚
