Hmm...Well, right now I'm reading Stephen King's The Stand. I'm really enjoying it, but it's taking forever to get through! I've been on a bit of a Stephen King kick for about a year now, and have made my way through Carrie and Under the Dome, both of which I really enjoyed. I also made it almost all the way through The Shining, but got too freaked out at the end to continue. I think cabin fever is one of my greatest fears. I mean, as much as I love HubbyButt and spending time with him, I don't think either of us would make it through a long winter if we had to do so with no other human contact the whole time. I would probably go crazy and kill us both, just like in The Shining. I REALLY enjoyed Under the Dome, King's latest novel. It took a good month (maybe longer) to read, but I'm so glad I stuck with it!
One of the things I LOVE about Stephen King is that he essentially writes about human nature and how we deal with things we're faced with. He's able to create common-sense heroes, and I love with that. The people that are able to keep their cool in intense situations are always the ones that come out on top, at least in King's world. I love love love psychology, and I think King's novel are essentially psychological thrillers; he really digs in and develops his characters.
If you have any suggestions or favorite books I NEED to read, please let me know! I'm a voracious reader and will read just about anything you put in front of me!
