    Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg

    I saw the movie again recently and was curious to see how (dis)similar the movie is to the book.

    I was very impressed with Ms. Tuchman's writing style. I will look into her other works. Thanks!

    Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson

    Book 3 of The Stormlight Archive

    Another 1000+ page book by Sanderson. I find him to be an incredible writer and well worth the investment in time.
