Currently reading the sublimely titled "Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick" by David Wong, which is the sequel to "Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits".

I’ve read one Sanderson novel and that was enough for me. Granted it was a YA novel, but similar to Shakes, I really hated that he seems to lack the ability to highlight a word, right-click, and use the thesaurus function when he realises he’s used a word two or three times in a paragraph.
Glad I'm not the only one who noticed. It literally drove me nuts.

I'll have to try Underland, Wings! That sounds interesting. I'm now onto "Into the Woods" by Tana French, which is a murder mystery and it's pretty good so far.

Currently listening to Nameless by Matt Rossi, he's one of the writers on a website I used to frequent and I had the spare Audible credit. It's fine so far.

I have been not just reading but also ranking all 60 Sherlock Holmes stories. I have about 10 more to go. It has been enjoyable but I also find Doyle to be a bit overrated to be honest.

The Agony & The Ecstasy by Irving Stone covers so much more of Michelangelo's life than the movie adapted! You could easily wring a multi-season television series out of it!

I have a two-book "All the Doyle" Holmes. There are some blah Holmes stories to be sure but all in all I find them a fascinating study of how to keep characters consistent over many stories. Plus the jumping up and down the timeline. Non-linear continuity at it's finest.
