Lets see...
Authors I've enjoyed:
Neal Stephenson
Max Berry
Erik Larson

I'm currently reading the HP Lovecraft collection and just finished Dracula.

Neal Stephenson's books I've loved, but everyone has taken me two tries to get rolling on, tough reads, but worth the trials.

Max Berry is funny as hell and I loved Jennifer Government.

Erick Larson writes non-fiction that reads like fiction, I highly recommend Devil In The White City.

Otherwise, pretty normal stuff, the Song of Ice and Fire books. Harry Potter books were a guilty pleasure. I enjoyed the Hunger Games books.

Obscure books: house of leaves (way fucked up book), Old Man's War series (sci-fi), The Lost Fleet series (sci-fi).

But I highly recommend Max Berry for lighter reading that is entertaining and Neal Stephenson if you want to tackle meatier reads.

I get some books on Audible that I should read but that I won't take the time to just sit and read, and I have found some good ones that way. I listen while I am working or driving, and save my real reading time for fun books.

Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea was an eye opener about that country.

You Are Not So Smart talks about how our brains work, and some of it is scary when you understand how you make choices sometimes.

Let's see..

"Sasha: A Trial of Blood and Steel" was pretty good, the series stayed fairly well written throughout.

"Halo: Cryptum" & "Halo:Primordium" has been more interesting to me than the games, but they're written by Greg Bear, so duh.

"Bioshock: Rapture" was a great tie-in with the game.

"Leviathan Wakes" was interesting.

Mira Grant's Newsflesh series was a great reimagining of zombie lit. The zombies were really background to the story and not the focus.

Richard K. Morgan's Takeshi Kovacs series was some great sci-fi.

This Archie Bunker thing you're doing is... comedy? I guess? Oh! Oh! Call someone a kike! Alcoholic bigotry is so fucking hilarious!
