    We are all in This Together by Amy Jones.

    I didn't think I'd like this book, but a) it is set in Canada, b) it is set in a location in Canada I'm familiar with and c) the characters are starting to pull me in. 125 pages in and I can't put the book down.

    I finally bought a book and have enjoyed it. Sapiens by Harari. It has been good so far. I have set aside my lunch hour to eat and read lately and it makes my afternoons feel more productive.

    "The Sound and the Fury" by William Faulkner.

    Sixth on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.

    Recommended by a friend. It is a difficult read and has me longing to get back to a non-fiction book.

    Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer. This was recommended to me when I was browsing at my favorite bookshop (support your local independently owned and operated everything, see below) and after watching the trailer for the movie I was intrigued enough to get it. So far it is nothing like what I was expecting. Some good, some not so good. I really like the idea behind the story so far and I've been thoroughly creeped out at points, but the pacing is kind of slow for such a short book.

    Dante's Divine Comedy

    Thought it wouldn't be that interesting, but it is quite compelling!

    I've read that a few times and liked it myself. Check out Milton's "Paradise Lost" after that if you enjoy that type of read.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I read some of it back in high school....but you know how that was. The intro to Dante said his work strongly influenced Paradise Lost.

    I just finished The Destroyers by Christopher Bollen. A smart thriller set in the Greek Island - great book to escape in winter.
