I was pondering reading ATLWCS but I decided not to end. I’m glad I stuck by my decision lol

The vanishing half sounds right up my street. Adding to my list 

:howiroll_beyonce_telling_talking_chatting_preaching_white_shirt_hands:

 

I think I remember hearing about it but never read. Is it good? Love anything thriller-ish 

 

Ha ha don’t judge me but I tend to buy digital downloads of books so I can easily read them on the train. I do prefer having physical copies of books but digital books are so much more convenient

Yess. Let me know what you think of Lagom if you read it.
 

 

I also recommend IQ84 by Murakami if anyone hasn’t read it. It’s quite possibly one of the most amazing books I’ve ever read

Murakami is my favorite author :whiteladydance_scarlett_dancing_happy_johansson:

east of eden is about a guy that settles in cali in like 1900 and has two sons it sounds boring but its really not

A book I truly want to recommend is Dean Koontz One door away from heaven. 

The book starts like this: 

"The world is full of broken people. Splints, casts, miracle *****, and time can’t mend fractured hearts, wounded minds, torn spirits."

And is a feel good funny book with a deeper meaning. What everyone needs these days in short. Start reading here and I swear you will want to continue:

Thanks for this thread!

I'm big sci-fi and end-of-the-world stories fan, so I recently read Metro 2033, and I am now halfway through the sequel, Metro 2034.

Basically, the planet has been destroyed during a nuclear war, and the story follows survivors protected from radiations in the Moscow underground. Honestly, despite a promising premise and some interesting ideas here and there, the story is not taking off due to poor writing (and full of ***ist undertones, women have barely any major role). There's another sequel, Metro 2035, but I doubt I will read it.

Im currently reading the classic: "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus'

Even though its from the early 90s, its still pretty relevant now.

My goal for the past few months has been to read once a day for an hour everyday.

I've done that and its been really interesting and ive learned alot from these books.

Reading should definitely be a priority especially for your mind

Thanks, I will check it out!

Yes, I read His Dark Materials years ago! I liked it. The BBC has been making a TV series out of it - I need to watch it! :wink_britney_everytime_white:
