Bought three today, a mercy that I've read one of them already (Ira Levin's Deathtrap).

Next up is Lauren Beukes' The Shining Girls on audio, and Blake Crouch's Dark Matter and King's Doctor Sleep in print.
I really like The Shining Girls. Such a neat, horrific premise. Her next novel, Broken Monsters, isn't quite as coherent, but it's also one I'd recommend.

Noted! I'm enjoying Shining Girls so far, demented villain, plucky heroine, and the premise is just too damn good of a hook.

Someone on Twitter was quoting the "1408" short story, so I re-read it, and it's still pretty damn good. I just love the phone talking back to Enslin (something they shifted in the film). "Six! This is six! This is goddamn fucking SIX!!!"
