Good book. Not nearly as scary as described. Didn‘t find it‘s scary at all actually. Definitely had me turning pages to find out what happened though! Loved this quote near the end of the book. “Fantasy was always a Reality waiting to be turned on.”
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss won the vote so that‘s next!

Need some help! Don‘t know which of these to read next and figured I could get some help from you guys! I‘ve only got about 110 pages left in NOS4A2 and will be done it shortly. Figured I could check in later tonight to see what everyone thinks and go from there!
Thanks for those who decide to reach out with the recommendations!

Cheshirecat913 I can only speak for The Name of the Wind, I haven't read Dune. I loved The Name of the Wind, great fantasy novel, I got my husband reading it now. 4mo
shadowspeak17 I haven‘t read Dune either, but I enjoyed The Name of the Wind, so it has my vote. 4mo

100 pages into this book. One of the easiest reads I‘ve encountered lately. The way the chapters are laid out, there‘s really no break in the story. I think it‘s fantastic so far, but, wish I didn‘t see trailers for the show which has allowed me to only see Zachary Quinto as Charlie Manx.

Still one of the best books I‘ve ever read. Remember picking this up about 2 years ago on a whim, and ended up finishing it three times over the course of a long weekend. Plot was fantastic, nostalgic, and truly grasped my attention from the opening chapter. This is a book I recommend to anyone who is into 80s pop culture, or just video games in general. This is the type of book that can then non-reassess, into readers. Way better than the movie.

Predicted the ending about 60% way through the book. I‘ve found his writing style to become very predictable over the years and sometimes wish it wouldn‘t take 5 years to put out a book, just to have the same types of endings and plot twists occur in every single book.

Ready Player One | Ernest Cline
Pickpick

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline was easily one of my favourite books that I read in 2016. Not only 2016 actually, ever. This was a fantastic book for anyone into gaming, pop culture, movies, music or anything 1980s. I'm over the moon that Spielberg is making this into a movie and the trailer looks amazing. I can't wait!

Ahenchcliffe Can't wait for this movie! 2y

Premise of the book was fantastic. I thought that it would be absolutely killer as I'm a sucker for any kind of book where an animal or insect is the threat or plot device, however, this one fell a little short. I'm not a fan of books that read like television series or end of cliff hangers like a television season ending. This was one of those types of books. It was good for what it was but that's about it!

DebinHawaii Welcome to Litsy! 🎉📚👍😀Hope you enjoy it here! 2y
AlexMcWilliams @DebinHawaii thanks so much for the welcome! I love this app in contrast to GoodReads already. Amazing premise! 2y
DebinHawaii @AlexMcWilliams I know what you mean. Goodreads is better for tracking/stacking but Litsy is the best. The people are amazing on here and there are lots of great things going on to get involved it--it becomes addicting and it will build your #TBR to epic proportions! 😆📚📚📚So jump in and have fun and ask any questions you have. 👍 2y
