    Happy to hear this. I have the book sitting on my nightstand but I've been dreading it because the LOTR books took me three months to get through. This one seemed a lot more interesting though.


    I'm halfway through Divergent and I love it. It's a great read if you're into books like The Hunger Games​.

    Just finished Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman. I really enjoyed it. Now I want to watch the series.

    white noise - don delillo. so far it's excellent. i've even found myself laughing out loud - on the subway - while reading it. people probably thought i was mad.

    Finished The Hobbit. I enjoyed it a lot more than the LOTR trilogy.

    Halfway through Insurgent and I'm somewhat bored by it. The first one was better.

    I am reading "Going Clear. Scientlology, Hollywood, & the prison of belief" by Lawrence Wright. (Yes, the book title has an Oxford comma followed by an ampersand... didn't know you could do that)
    This book is split in two halves: the first part is about Ron Hubbard's life and the creation of scientology. The second part is about the Miscavige era.

    I think everybody should read this book: way too often people would laugh about Scientology thinking it's some funny shit for lunatics, but the truth is so much darker. Ron Hubbard was an abusive, violent criminal and there have been so many deaths in the history of Scientology.
    It's a big book, about 500 pages in small print, but extremely well documented and really interesting.

    I just read about the involvement of Travolta and the Church and it's a sad story.

    ^^I want to read that one. I read the book by Miscavige's niece and it was frightening to hear the way they treat young children. The work they made these kids do was like hard labor.

    I'm currently reading a book called The Blue Hour by T. Jefferson Parker. It's part of a series (Merci Rayborn). I decided to read it because it's about a fictional serial killer and it takes place where I live. It's creepy because all the places they talk about are pretty much real and the place where the killer or killers dump the bodies is a really creepy stretch of road where many bodies have been dumped. Plus, it was 2.99 on my kindle. It's pretty good.

    A Season In Purgatory - Dominick Dunne

    a very thinly veiled roman a clef look at the murder of Martha Moxley and the Skakel family.

    this one sucks you in and you cannot put it down.

    Dunne is a master when it comes to writing about the very wealthy and powerful.

    Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson. Hilarious so far.

    I just restarted the Game of Thrones series.

    And I pre-ordered Written In My Own Heart's Blood, the 8th installment in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. It should ship tomorrow!
