Almost a year ago, I wrote up a list of books we had been reading. I figure I’d share what’s been on our Kindles since then.
- Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker
Rich Luhr recommended this in the comments of my last post about what we’ve been reading. I enjoyed it, but found the action to be a little repetitive.
- Cannery Row
We read this while we were in Monterey. A great book. We later saw the movie, which didn’t stand the test of time for me.
- Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President
I know I’ve mentioned it a few times already, we LOVED this book. What a page turner.
- The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey
I read this on my own, Brian moved on to the Game of Thrones series. This book moved at a slower pace than the Garfield book, but was really quite memorable.
- The Mind’s Eye (Vintage)
I tend to latch on to topics in my reading. First it was presidents, then it was the human brain. I preferred definitely the Fear book to The Mind’s Eye.
- Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen
I’m not a runner, but found this to be an interesting read.
- Defending Jacob: A Novel
Finally some fiction. District attorney’s son who is accused of killing a classmate. Easy and entertaining.
- 11/22/63: A Novel
Stephen King novel about time travelling to save JFK. Awesome book.
- Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath
I needed a little more JFK after the Stephen King book. This one is quite shocking.
- Tisha: The Story of a Young Teacher in the Alaska Wilderness
Janie recommended this one to me. I really enjoyed it.
- Ready Player One: A Novel
I was blown away by the first half of this book. It felt like the next Hunger Games. The second half was a little disappointing.
- Gone Girl: A Novel
A twisted page turner. Good fun.
- The Fault in Our Stars
I’m about halfway through this one. Teen cancer love story. I’m expecting a sad ending.
Meanwhile Brian has been reading the Game of Thrones series:
- A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book One
- A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 2)
- A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 3)
- A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 4)
- A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 5)
Any must read recommendations out there? xoxo
