I prefer science fiction, fantasy, and horror without the spaceships, dragons, and zombies.

April Reading Wrap-Up

In April, I read enough chapter ones from various books to equal the length of a short novel. I picked at books I've had going for a long while, a chapter or two from one thing, a short story from one anthology/collection or another.

Not much is holding my interest. I think the problem is my general mood, rather than the material I've been sampling. I just haven't been able to figure out what it is exactly I'm in the mood to read.

But I'll read through it. It will pass.

I did manage to finish three books in April.

They are:

Night Squad, by David Goodis - A solid noir read. I'll be picking up some more Goodis for sure.

 



South of the Border, West of the Sun, by Haruki Murakami - A good book, but only an okay Murakami.

 



Borderline, by Lawrence Block - Repackaged, old-fashioned sleaze. A serial killer amid sexual adventurers on the US-Mexico border.
