    While on a short business trip I picked up one of the Odd Thomas books. It had been years since I read one. I saw that the final book was out so I started reading the next to last one and will move on to the final one next. Not great literature but I enjoy them.

    I just finished Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis. It's an interesting examination of class disparity and inequality.

    I just finished Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll. A really good read but a troubling topic.

    I am now on to The Night Circus which my book club is reading this month.

    I read that one and liked it okay, but I never got around to the 2nd one and now too much time has passed . But I saw a movie poster - I think it will make a pretty entertaining movie

    I often read the first book in a series and save the next for later. Sometimes it takes me a long while to get back to it. And yeah, it probably will make an entertaining movie.

    I'm currently reading The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot: The True Story of the Tyrant Who Created North Korea and The Young Lieutenant Who Stole His Way to Freedom by Blaine Harden. I'm into North Korea right now. It's a good read!
    Done with this. It was really good. It had a good amount of the history of the Korean War from the North Korean perspective.

    I went and looked at this on Amazon. The review said a cross of Gillian Flynn and Curtis Sittenfeld's Prep which is one of my favorite books. Downloaded and started - thanks for the idea :)

    I started the Ian Rutledge series but the second book turned me off. I'm currently reading The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty and it's quite good.

    When I was checking it out it said it was a cross between Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, which I had just finished reading so it piqued my interest. Now I might need to check out Prep...
