Anybody Else Read The Books I’ve Read Lately?

Tell Your Friends

I got into a kind of learn/personal development kick this summer, with a sprinkling of fiction in there to keep me sane.

Problem is, I don’t know anyone else who’s read these books, so I have nobody to talk to.

Here’s my list:

NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Silberman

Extreme Ownership by Willink and Babin

Armada by Cline

Way of the Warrior Kid by Willink

Raising Men by Davis

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Duhigg

Invictus by Graudin

American Gods by Gaiman

Make Your Bed by McRaven

Ham on Rye by Bukowski

Meditations by Aurelius

The Alchemist by Coelho

and I’m 1/4 finished with Sleeping Beauties by King and King

I’ve linked each book title to its page on Amazon, because I’m too lazy at 9:00 p.m. to download and upload pictures of each book.  Sue me, it’s been a long day.

Hit me up in the comment section or by email at if you want to discuss.  Also, I’m open to participating in any book clubs that may be floating around.  It’d have to be local to East Millinocket, but I suppose I could do some sort of Twitter chat once every couple of weeks.

    I’ve finally gotten back to writing (WHOOOHOOO!) and I have been listening to the last 3 Rizzoli and Isle novels. Next on my list is the King and King of Sleeping Beauties (But I’m listening, so takes a lot longer to get thru a novel!) – I’ve read American’ Gods and had the hardest time “loving it”. It was “eh” for me.
    I’m anxious to read SB because Owen’s writing style if VERY different than his father’s its far more “screen play”.

    1. I had the VERY SAME reaction to American Gods. I kept waiting to fall in love with it – after all, the hype was huge! I’m still early on with SB, but I find myself anxious to hear what happens next. I guess I’m invested. And yeah, Audible takes at least 25% longer to get through novels. I’m glad you’re back at writing. I’ve been following along via FB.

        Well I’m doing homecare at the moment and I am just relishing the audiobooks. The reader has to be good or the book doesn’t flow.
        Yup the writing is slow but that rhythm seems to be back. We’ll see if I stall out! I hope not

        1. Try To Kill a Mockingbird. A total classic, but it’s made epic by Sissy Spacek’s narration. It did for me what Reese Witherspoon did in Water For Elephants.

            YES to both of those – RC Bray read The Martian and oh my god, so good!
            There is one who does the Rizzoli and Isle series, Tanya Ebay I think her name was. She gets the Boston accent JUST right and doesn’t sound fake. Also the woman who narrated the Hunger Games, Carolyn McCormick (her only screen credit is an episode of Star Trek The Next Generation) was fabulous.
