Fall is (almost) here - Things I've read since Winter and I want to read next


Summer has been really good for me in terms of work. But in making time for other things it has been a little on the down side.

However I still managed to read a lot of books. And these are a few of my favourite books that I've read since the last post (which was in March!!).

I've finished The Strain - by Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan (that really loved and wish to continue to read, not only in the book format, but also the comics and I'm considering checking the tv show too) and The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum (I read half of this one and only managed to finish it with an audiobook)

Since I've been collecting so many Stephen King books, I've picked The Shining, because it's one of the most acclaimed books from h. (after I've also saw the film directed by Kubric).

Finally read Coraline by Neil Gaiman with the amazing and wierd illustrations by Dave McKean. (I've also seen recently saw the film again, they're both amazing!)

Read and was inspired by Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative by Austin Kleon.

I've also read Dark Places by Gillian Flynn (and enjoy it a lot! more than her more acclaimed book).

Series that I've started to read  or continued

I've started Chronicles of Nick Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon - Infinity (audiobook). I'm not sure if I'll continue to read it because it does have some spoilers related with the Dark Hunter Series.

Started again with In Death Series by J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) Naked in Death (1st book) Glory in Death (2nd book) and Immortal in Death (and the 3rd)
By Nora Roberts I've also read/listened The Witness which surprised me a lot (in a good way).

Started to read the Women's Murder Club Series by James Patterson - 1st to Die and 2nd Chance

I've re-read the first Miss Marple book series Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie and then proceed to read the second one The Body in the Library.

I've also started a new series FBI Thriller by Catherine Coulter, the first one was The Cove (also as Audiobook)


Comics & Graphic Novels

I've started the following comics
- The Fade Out, Vol. 1: Act One by Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips (Illustrations), Elizabeth Breitweiser (Colorist)
- Southern Bastards, Vol. 1: Here Was a Man by Jason Aaron (Writer), Jason Latour (Illustrations)
- Outcast: Volume 1: A Darkness Surrounds Him by Robert Kirkman, Paul Azaceta, Elizabeth Breitweiser (Illustrator)
- Wytches, Vol. 1 by (the amazing) Scott Snyder (Goodreads Author), Jock (Illustrator)

And the Graphic Novels
- Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki, Jillian Tamaki (Illustrator)
Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol

As for the following months I'm want to continue these Comics, and some of the series I've started. I might also start other series. I've been collecting some series that I always wanted to read like - The Vampire Chronicles and Lives of the Mayfair Witches by Anne Rice; continue to read more Stephen King; continue to read more short stories by H. P. Lovecraft; and finish The Killing by David Hewson.

What about you? What have you been reading? or What do you want to read next?
