What book are you currently reading?

I borrowed two books from the library today and I'm about to start reading Tove Jansson's Trollvinter (Moominland Midwinter) in Finnish. I've read it before in Finnish and English but that was years ago.

I am currently reading Dean Koontz Twilight Eyes. I read it before a long time ago, but I wanted to read it again. Dean Koontz is one of my favorite authors, so I am going through and reading or re-reading all of his books.

I don't think I've ever read his books. Anything you'd recommend?

Most of his books are suspense thrillers. I pretty much like all of his books but these are some of my favorites. Darkfall, Twilight Eyes, The Funhouse, Whispers, Watchers, and Key To Midnight. Those are all standalone books. A series of his you might want to try out is the Moonlight Bay Series which consists of the books Fear Nothing and Seize the Night. I am not sure what type of books you are interested but those are the most interesting to me.

I'm (slowly) re-reading all of L. M. Montgomery's novels in the order they were published. I'm currently reading Magic for Marigold. I think I've only read it once before (unlike the countless times I've read Anne of Green Gables) and that was years ago, so it's like reading it for the first time. It's similar to AoGG, but not as engaging, I'm afraid.

In recent years I find myself almost exclusively reading short story/essay collections and nonfiction. Right now I’m most of the way through Ten Little Indians by Sherman Alexie. It’s wonderful, I really love him
