Just finished Mr. Mercedes, a book that's not a horror, strangely, by Stephen King.

It's very well written, and Mr. King shows us that it doesn't have to be ghouls and ghosts and clowns that dwell in drains that scare us, it's the everyday weirdo that lives behind screen doors, keeps himself to himself and has an unhealthy relationship with his mother.

Memory Man by David Baldacci.

Unfortunately, like the title suggests, I won't be forgetting this crap easily. 

A young NFL player gets hit very hard in his first play as a professional and dies not once but twice while the medical team try to save him. Unfortunately they do, and his life is changed forever as he realizes he has a kind of special power where he can recall everything that is happening around him like playing a DVR in his brain. He has to quit football and becomes a policeman, quickly being promoted to a detective before someone kills his wife and daughter and it all falls apart. This is where the book gets slightly ridiculous but I carried on reading it for the laughs that weren't intentional.

Baldacci sells millions of books. I followed the wrong path as a kid that's for sure.
