The Passage by Justin Cronin. Up next is the sequel The Twelve. The final book in the trilogy, City of Mirrors, is released later this month.

As I hoped, yes ... this really did tie everything up and end the story at a trilogy (but with possibility for more stories in this world if the author so wishes).

The Twelve was awful... just awful. I'm not even sure where City of Mirrors can go after the last book; but I'll read it anyways.

The Mike Hammer books by Mickey Spillane.



I decided that I wanted a set of the classic covers.

Re: What Are You Reading?(May 2016)

Finished both of these and really wasn't impressed with either:





Still trying to decide what's next. Kimberly McCreight has a new book, but apparently it's the start of a YA series so I'll pass on that. I see a lot of people posting the Miss Peregrine's series so I might try that. I also have some other Nick Hornby books that I haven't read yet, although How To Be Good really dampened my enthusiasm for him.
