I am reading Tolkien's Ring by David Day, it's non-fiction on how J.R.R. Tolkien created his mythology and the sources he used to create the world of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. I love mythology!

Just finished Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn.

It was a good read. Not as dark as her other books, but still plenty dark as is her wont. Made my way through it in two days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The ending was a bit predictable, but that's OK. It's not like every book's ending can be a surprise. It's her descriptive prose that keeps me enthralled.

The Diabetes Code, by Dr. Jason Fung. Subtitle: Prevent and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally.


It works, I am now off all my diabetes medications and have been able to cut my blood pressure meds in half.

I recently finished the Rabbit in Red trilogy by Joe Chianakas. It's a thriller based on the horror genre; not really horror in and of itself, in my opinion. It's somewhat Stephen King-like, though for a younger audience. They were easy, entertaining reads.
