What are you reading? (May 2010)

I was shocked when I looked at the date just before posting to the April thread to realize it is May already. Where did the time go? Anyway, really enjoyed The Likeness by Tana French, but next up is a James Patterson & Friends book that is the latest part of the Women's Murder Club series (I almost feel duty bound to continue with the series):

Re: What are you reading? (May 2010)

Late last night/this morning, while the obnoxious side effects of steroids coursed through my chest up to my throat, I finished:



There are some bona fide classics in there, including "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?" and Batman: The Killing Joke. I've been meaning to read the latter for 21 years and finally did it. It was funny, because I've heard so much about it--and even seen so many pages from it over the years in Wizard articles and such--that it felt like a re-read. In some regards, it was just as depraved as I was told, but it still felt...tame, somehow. I could definitely trace the influence it's had on the Batman mythology, especially the cinematic depictions of the Joker.

Up next...unsure. I read this to take a break while I figured out what I wanted to read next, and I'm still unsure. The last three of the four other books I've read this year were all memoirs, so I don't know. It might be time to finish off the Ian Fleming Bonds with Octopussy and The Living Daylights short story collection, which I'm reluctant to do because then there'll be none left for me to read. On the other hand, I've been saving Sebastian Faulks's Devil May Care until I finish Fleming's run.

Finished the The Great Movies II which as excellent and Don't Know Much About Anything which wasn't really that interesting. Will be reading some classic Rex Stout that just got released to ebooks next.

Not bad so far. I've never read a Ted Dekker novel until this one.
