Just finished up Headstone City by Tom Piccirilli.

Probably finish Deathbringer by Bryan Smith today as well.

Not sure what's up next.

Just finished Richard Laymon's Travelling Vampire Show


Really fun book! I was expecting a horror novel, but it read more like a thriller for me. People who didn't like it always said "It's no Something Wicked This Way Comes" - so now I need to read that down the line.

Still working on Conspiracy Club.

I read The Traveling Vampire Show not too long ago and was somewhat let-down by it. I kept hearing that it was Laymon's best book, but there are several that I enjoyed more. I was expecting a balls-out horror novel as well and perhaps that's why.

I'm finally reading Dan Brown's Angel and Demons and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

Now reading:

MASH by Richard Hooker

I had always enjoyed the film and show but had never gotten around to reading the book on which they're based. So far it's great--wonderful writing with laugh-out-loud funny scenes.

It's a western, which is not my usual genre. So far it's a breezy read, almost too much so. I've never read any of Parker's Spencer novels.

No idea what's next. Have to hit the library soon.

The DaVinci Code

24: Declassified - Veto Power <-- surprisingly good, much better than I expected
For those that are unaware, the series of novels take place before season 1 of 24. They are early cases/assignments of Jack Bauer's. Therefore Chappelle, Walsh, Tony, & Nina are all present. Each chapter is 1 hour of the day.

I picked this up after reading a few pages while in Barnes & Noble. So far I can't put it down.
