I need some books to read over the holidays. Just finished Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, which was pretty good, a little dense, but if you're into cyberpunk, science fiction and history, you'll probably like it. 

 

Sooo OH, what books are you reading right now? Or what are some of your favorite books that you would recommend to someone? Can be any genre.

Three-Body Problem: it's also science-fiction so you might like it.

I just finished Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer. I really liked it. They are turning it into a movie staring Nathalie Portman. And I`m going to start reading This is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel. Completely different genre, but a lot of people said good stuff about it, so..

I have only recently started reading "Miyamoto Musashi: A Life In Arms" by William De Lange after watching a few videos by the author reading excerpts of various chapters in the book. The incredible detail and in-depth look at his life story/history just got me way too intrigued. You should give the video a watch and see if you're interested enough to read the book.

I'm currently reading Pet Sematary by Stephen King. 

 

Some I've read recently that I'd recommend are 11/22/63 also by King (historical fiction/science fiction), A Book of American Martyrs by Joyce Carol Oates (contemporary fiction), A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki (contemporary fiction/some magical realism), and A Kiss Before Dying by Ira Levin (mystery/thriler).

 

A Kiss Before Dying led me to read Rosemary's Baby, which I liked overall (not into the payoff at the end tho). I also just bought Levin's The Stepford Wives which I'm eager to get into.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman. He's one of my favorite authors and I've been putting it off for so long but oh my god it's one of the best books I've read. It has scenes like the English fantasy I love so much and other cultures religions/myths, all coming together in America.
