Reading Carlos Ruiz Zafons new book The Watcher in the Shadows.
Really good so far. :D

Ghost, have you read any of the Redwall series by Brian Jacques? Think Wind in the Willows with attitude! Great stuff. ;)

Hope you're enjoying it!

I tried reading another memoir, Confessions of a Sociopath, Hiding in Plain Sight. Got as far as halfway through the second chapter and gave up. Poorly written, disjointed and boring.

Moved on to Then We Came To The End by Joshua Ferris. I've still got a couple of chapters to go, but I feel comfortable saying that I highly recommend it! It's about a group of people who work together at an ad agency and it absolutely has the laugh out loud factor. I picked it up at the library because one of their book clubs chose it and two others to discuss. It's the first time I've seen a book club intentionally choose "quirky" books to discuss. It caught my eye because one of Christopher Moore's books is on the list! Plus, they meet at the local Alehouse to discuss. Double bonus. 8-)

Yes they're quite good but I will have to wait until Worldcon to get the other two in the dealers room. :mrgreen:
