The Gunslinger by Stephen King

It took me about 10 tries to finally be able to read this whole book. I am glad I stuck with it, even though it was a little out there for my taste. I just hope I like the next book because I really want to read this series.

Beyond Reach by Karin Slaughter

So out of 5 stars I would give it 3. It was ok, nothing I would reread, that's for sure. Once I got 170 pages from the end and nothing had been resolved yet, I knew I wasn't going to be a big fan of it. I can't stand rushed endings to tie all the loose endings together. Then the final scene, I guess that was supposed to make you rush out and buy the next book? No thanks, the 2 main characters aggravated the hell out of me for the first part. I would much rather read about Lena Adams. She is at least interesting.

Blind Fall by Christopher Rice

I am a huge Christopher Rice fan, but this was not one of his best books. It seemed very rushed, there were times when I didn't know what was going on, and the ending is predictable which I have never experienced with any of his other books. Still one of my favorite authors, but wish I hadn't paid full price for the book.
