    Just finished The Wolf of Wall Street and I think I'm going to start the Song of Ice and Fire series next. Although I have just bought to boxing autobiographies so I'll have to fit them all in.

    Finished Unwholly by Neal Shusterman and now I'm waiting on Unsouled to come into the library so I can continue on my way to finishing the series. For now I'm reading Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. So far exactly like the movie.

    Iron Ambition by Mike Tyson. His autobiography was an outstanding read, this book deals with the life of his manager and father figure, Cus D'Amato.

    Now that business slowed down picked up these jewels to start on. o_O
    1bf20672260fcb6877a716c0e1e1fdd7.jpg This looks like a nice easy read.
    0970e315c19ffd2aedc135badee3e14e--book-covers-book-jacket.jpg Sounds kind like a Randy Newman autobiography. 2117-tattooed-women.jpg Tatted mountain women and spoon boxes....oh yeahhhhh it don't get no better than that.
    2067-everything-i-know-about-women-i-learned-from-my-tractor.jpg yep...Roger's first book "Barnyard fun and Is that my chicken thats choking" was a never putter down read. This one should fly as well.

    I didn't like it, very long and predictable it just seemed to ramble on going nowhere... then it ends like the author just ran out of a direction to end it... I suppose it leaves you thinking but I'm not sure about what.i'd like too see the movie just to see if the screen write is better

    An auto biography by John Ibrahim "Last King of the X"

    96222ba72e19927900ad699e7798ef6f.jpg

    It is a little different to the series they made about him and a very entertaining and light read as it is his vernacular that is used to describe his background and lifestyle.

    I'vê finished The Three Bod'y Trilogy (Liu Cixin). Attention, all nerds of SF. You have to read these books! You just have to!

    Now I'm reading a book my man recommended. It's by Ed Young and it's called I Contain Multitudes. It's about microbes, mainly bacteria. Very good book. Non fiction.

    My man also recommends Your Inner Fish, by Neil Shubbin. I'm starting it.

    Just finished up Normal a novel by Warren Ellis. Very short and more of a novella but fascinating all the same. I’ve just made a start on the Chase but Shaun Hutson. One of the darkest things I’ve read in a long time.
