Skeleton Key | Anthony Horowitz

My latest spy craze has me once again reeling for more! I‘ve been obsessed with James Bond my whole life and the young Alex Rider series only adds to the espionage addiction.

TSWLM isn‘t my favorite Bond novel, but it‘s one of the most criminally underrated novels ever written. James Bond, driving through the country after the fallout of a previous mission, decides to stay the night because he‘s knackered from all the driving. I‘ll spare any more detail so as to not spoil it, but that‘s where the story takes off at a sprinter‘s pace. Vintage espionage prose and story, romance, brutal action, etc.

Cat Chaser: A Novel | Elmore Leonard

Onto the next Elmore novel! His writing is so addictive, it turns me into the most compulsive of readers. His fly-by-wire prose has you moving so quickly from one page to the next that the story is over before you have the opportunity to remember even starting it.

When a book is your favorite, it is something you cherish. So much in fact, that you buy multiple copies just because the newest cover looks cooler than the last one.

LadyCait84 That‘s a lovely cover!!!! (And the book itself is great too, obviously.) 😊 12mo
blankpagesofmine @LadyCait84 thank you!! I found it recently at a bookstore in Philly and also bought a similar throwback looking copy of Franny and Zooey. Book money well spent! :) 📚 12mo

I haven‘t been on here in ages and I‘ve missed this wonderful bookworm community! Hey there Litsy! 👋🏻 Can‘t get enough of this man‘s crimecapades. I‘ve been on a Leonard marathon and it continues with Out of Sight, which was turned into a cinematic thriller in the late nineties starring George Clooney.

Portnoy's Complaint | Philip Roth
post image

Some of Roth's novels have been on my TBR for quite some time and I have yet to take the plunge. I've heard that his works can be separated with a butter knife, in terms of style and literary impact but is that such an uncommon thing to see from 20th century writers who had long tenures? I always enjoy seeing how an author's writing changes as they do, and as time and history progresses.

In love with this one so far, despite some of the criticism it gets as being a young Thompson work lacking the Gonzo finesse.

CUSTOMER: I read a book in the sixties. I don‘t remember the author, or the title. But it was green, and it made me laugh. Do you know which one I mean?

Reading outdoors is like sitting outdoors and taking in a view, while reading. That's exactly what it is. The only difference being that you get absorbed into two worlds, whereas merely sitting outside without a book in hand only allows you to be a part of one.

Slow Waltz in Cedar Bend | Robert James Waller
post image
Pickpick

What I expected to be a pan based on reviews that I read, turned out to be an absolute delight. As with Bridges, I feel like some readers didn't understand the tranquility of the story. It's not a bloated romance, it's a timeless story of two people and how they can't imagine not being with one another. I also loved the Robert Kincaid reference!

Summer is the beach, nostalgia of the beach, and a beach read. It's a small escapist painting of a boardwalk pier, with water damage that only helped it to grow more beautiful. ~blankpagesofmine

T2 Trainspotting (Fti) | Irvine Welsh
post image

Trainspotting was a brilliant film from the nineties that is one which helped turn me into such a movie addict. 21 years later, the sequel doesn't disappoint in the slightest.

Now maybe it's time to actually read the novels that they were based on 🤔

Stumbled on this little gem few years ago and it's now always on my yearly must read list. It's a whimsical tale about a town that is plagued by February, who cast a permanent winter upon the area from his place high in the clouds. It also has The Girl Who Smells of Smoke and Honey too...

...so there's that.

The Moon is Down | John Steinbeck

Something about his writing always strikes me like it's a form that no longer exists. It was classical, straight forward, and pulled the reader in with ease. So far, this one is just as great as his others and also very different.

Of Mice and Men | John Steinbeck

"Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen."

~John Steinbeck

Of Mice and Men is one of the classics that I really feel lives up to it's reputation. Steinbeck often had great insight into the life of a writer, as reflected in the quote above.

My 2nd exploration into the James Bond novels, outside of Ian Fleming's original series. The plot picks up one year after the events of The Man With The Golden Gun and continues the original storyline.
