The list author says: "Books play a big part of my life - in work and as a hobby. This is the third year I've kept track of what I've read here on Amazon as a Listmania list just to share with anyone whose interested. But it's more my own private list than anything. I'll be adding more throughout the year."
"A fun gory read, often over the top, but worth a read if you like zombie-type outbreaks and loathe shiny vampires. Finished it 1/17/11 on my Kindle. Be advised only about 50% is the story itself. The other 50% is "the making of" emails between the authors, behind the scenes stuff, and teasers of their other work."
"A good long look at homosexual characters in Williams' plays mirrored with what was happening in Williams' life at the time he wrote them. A bit dry unless you appreciate the infamous playwright. Finished it 2/20/11"
"Okay, I know its a kids book but it was written by John Berendt, one of my favorite authors, so I had to have a copy. Got it on its release date thanks to Amazon. June 9th and read it in one setting. Great book for the young and young at heart!"
"This is the first fictional King book I've read since high school. It was a good read, but having just read Koontz I really wanted a bit more intensity. King is good at building characterization and really getting into the psyche, but he drones on and on too much sometimes and it really bogs the story down. Still a good read. I finished it in just two weeks - on July 23rd."
"Part 4 in the series. Finished it 8/19/11. The story moves to Montana, and unfortunately leaves a lot of its darkness behind in New Orleans. Koontz has too many characters that never reach their full potential. Read my review for more info."
"Great book and I will definitely finish the series. However, it wasn't what I expected because there isn't anything new here as far as Psychic Mediums go. The surprise ending wasn't even enough to redeem itself. Finished it 10/1. I gave it 3 stars. Read my full review."
"A book I've been waiting to read all year! I thoroughly enjoyed it, but once again, King gets wrapped up in the everyday life of his characters and strays from the big picture. Still a great read. I gave it 4 stars out of 5. Finished it 11/23/11."
"A favorite short story that I actually just read for the first time in 2010 over the Christmas holiday. I picked up this children's picture book version of it earlier this year in a used bookstore and saved it for today. 12/25/11"
"One of those books I thought I would probably never read, but I'm so glad I did. Very complex crime drama that takes lots of patience, but is well worth the read. Check out my full review. Finished it 12/29/11."
