I'm also reading Horns but for week 16. I loved NOS4A2 and Heart Shaped Box. A lot of people are reading Big Little Lies for week 28. And The Other Boleyn Girl is really good (week 34) if you like historical fiction.

Marie (bunchabooks) I'll be reading Gone Girl with you and maybe Clockwork Orange but haven't decided for sure on that one. I think it's awesome that your mom's favorite book is Pet Sematary!

Marah (eyreo) Welcome! I know you in real life, haha. We're reading similar books, in some of them. Yay! :)

Good luck with the rest of the challenge. :-)

Kelsey Solnick | 12 comments Laura-- Horns is the first book I will be reading from Joe Hill. I've heard great things about Heart Shaped Box, and it's on my to read list! So, if I like this one I will read his other two. I'll add those two suggestions to my list!

Marie-- I really enjoyed A Clockwork Orange, and I would definitely recommend it!

Marah-- I took some of my ideas from you. :)
