Laura (Lclwags) (lclwags) | 517 comments So far, I have a plan for 6 of them.
Aries - A Mrs. Murphy book. The main character, Harry, drives an old truck in the early books. I own most of them, so I'll raid my bookcase to decide which to re-read. I think I'm going with Rest in Pieces
Taurus - The Gunslinger. This will be the year that I make some progress on the Dark Tower books! I've tried to read this book at least 3 times and I get distracted every time.
Cancer - Bird Box. I just bought the audio book on the 2 for 1 sale.
Leo - Fahrenheit 451. It's just sad that I have yet to read this one, so it's time to remedy that.
Scorpio - The Desert Spear because I really enjoyed The Warded Man.
Pisces - The Crooked House sounded interesting.

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17063 comments Looks great! If you can edit your post when you can to add the links to the books so we can all steal them/check them out that'd be awesome!

Good luck with your challenge, Laura. It looks like Fahrenheit 451 is a popular book for this challenge.


message 16: by Laura (Lclwags) (new)

Laura (Lclwags) (lclwags) | 517 comments Thanks! Someone said they were making Fahrenheit 451 into a movie. Maybe that's why it's become more popular this year.

message 22: by Cherie (last edited Nov 02, 2018 11:37AM) (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 19982 comments I decided that I needed to read Thunderhead after I read a few Pendergast books, because I wanted to know the back story to Bill and Nora. There were parts that I really liked, but, like you, I wanted answers. Haven't gotten any yet...


message 23: by Laura (Lclwags) (new)

Laura (Lclwags) (lclwags) | 517 comments I saw your review that said something about the back story. Are they main characters in the Pendergast series?


message 24: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 19982 comments They are not main characters but have recurring roles in many of the Pendergast books. Nora in three or four and Bill in many more. Bill annoyed me most of the times. I liked Nora. There are many other characters that came and went in the series, after they were introduced.
