I mainly talk about film, TV, books, sport (football and rugby union mainly) and may talk about running.

I've been thinking of finally reading some Stephen King, but no idea where to start.

Go for one of the likes of his famous work, like the Shining or the Green Mile? Or something lesser known?

@fskornia @bookstodon Predominantly fantasy, with literary and historical fiction thrown in. I do like horror in terms of film, but never actually read any fiction

@flyblue @bookstodon Haha fair. I've heard a lot of good things about The Stand

@acatwholovesyou @fskornia @bookstodon And a bit of sci-fi/Fantasy thrown in from what I gather. Definitely one for consideration. Thanks!

@Rhube @bookstodon Thanks! I've heard a lot of good things about it, just feel potentially a standalone would be best for me at the moment.

@fskornia @bookstodon Thanks so much for this! A really good rundown. I'm tempted to start with a horror, given he's renowned for it, but will definitely keep the others in consideration!

@AndyT @flyblue @bookstodon All three sound great. Reading the synopsis, Joyland sounds like it could be a winner! Thanks for the recs!

@AndyT @flyblue @bookstodon Alas, I have the depressing nature of UK politics to deal with at the moment...

@fskornia @bookstodon Thanks! I may have to whittle down to a four and then set up a poll. I'm do indecisive haha!

A spy thriller set in Syria. What could possibly be wrong with that? Well, quite a bit actually...

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue was on my reading list for a long while, so great to have read it, especially after so much hype. My thoughts here.

My first series of Brandon Sanderson is complete, but has it lived up to the hype?

Just started the Iliad this morning and during the quarrel between Agamemnon and Achilles, the translator has decided to use the word "nincompoop"...

It's certainly a choice...

Amy Cokayne's shithousery as she came off the pitch - love it!

The shortlist for 2024 has just been announced! I’ve not read any of them yet but a couple are tempting - The Wren, The Wren and Restless Dolly Maunder. Shame Western Lane didn’t make it @bookstodon Announcing the 2024 Women's Prize for Fiction shortlist! - Women's Prize : Women's Prize https://womensprize.com/announcing-the-2024-womens-prize-for-fiction-shortlist/

@sarahmatthews @bookstodon The only author I've read is Kate Grenville and that was the Secret River, but this one again sounds excellent.

Having watched so many Poirot episodes, it's kind of criminal, I haven't read any of the books until now...

@LincolnRamirez@mstdn.social avatar

I've been quite quiet on the running front in the last few weeks. Three weeks ago, I must have slept funnily and ended up twisting the soft tissue just below my ribs, which can take up to 6 weeks to heal from...

I feel as though I'm almost recovered, but every so often get sharp painful twinges in the morning especially. It means ultimately that I can no longer do the London Marathon this year, so have deferred to the following one.

A brutal and compelling retelling of Clytemnestra's story. An excellent debut novel by Costanza Casati.

@noodlemaz @bookstodon Thanks, I'm looking forward to them! Just a few books to get through first before that...

After 16 miles yesterday, felt as though I was walking around like a zombie... longest run to date and toughest of my marathon training so far.

@LincolnRamirez@mstdn.social avatar

@hankg Nice, best of luck with the training in the future. Getting out of that Zone 4 is key, was the same in spending far too much time in that zone...
