    I'm primarily a Sci-fi, Fantasy reader, but I also enjoy the occasional crime drama or thriller. I recently found a really good murder mystery/romance trilogy by an author named Melinda Leigh. The 1st book is Hour of Need (Scarlet Falls Trilogy Book 1). Book 2 is Minutes to Kill and Book 3 is Seconds to Live. Very well written and a surprisingly enjoyable break from my usual reading fare.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed the Red Rising series the last couple months. Onto book two of the Bobiverse series and am really enjoying it too.

    Finished book two this morning. Already onto book 3. Wonder if book 4 is still coming out in 2018.

    If you're a murder mystery / crime drama fan, take a look at Kendra Elliot's Mercy Kilpatrick series. I really like the main character and the stories are very well written. They are available on Kindle Unlimited, as well as standard e-book formats and paperback.

    So sort of on-topic and sort of not. You guys have got to listen to recent Joe Rogan podcast with guest Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club. That guy is just gold. Just coming at everything from a different angle, with nothing out of bounds. Very interesting. My favorite part of this one was "Well, thank goodness I'm off the hook with that whole Winona Ryder thing". The juice is worth the squeeze if you want to find out what it means, give it a listen.

    Anyone interested in just "friending" each other on good reads?

    Isn’t that what this thread is for? I have done a poor job here, lots more I should share about my 2018 reading. But anyhow please rephrase / clarify.

    I'm not good at updating here, but I do use Goodreads. I've only read 5 or 6 books this year, which is VERY low for me, but I've been busy.

    This link will work for the next 30 days, apparently:

    I did read American Gods by Neil Gaiman which I enjoyed more than I thought I would. And I'm currently reading a few more books in the Honor Harrington universe (big sprawling Sci-Fi universe with space battles that read like navy battles.)
