The Door Into Summer - Robert A. Heinlein

Time travel, cryogenics, suspended animation, and then spread this through two different eras of the 70's and the year 2000. This is a fun trip that involves a crazy inventor, deception, romance, and a feisty tomcat. And to top it all off RAH wrote about these two eras in 1957!

The Bone Clocks - David Mitchell

Had that thought when your driving and your gps loses its signal and it appears your car is flying through the city, "Where the hell is this going?!?!" And at the end I still didn't know...

The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 5: 1959-1960 - Whoopi Goldberg, Charles M. Schulz

The Peanuts anthologies are an excellent look back at our childhood through the eyes of Charlie Brown and gang. 1959-1960 brings us the birth of Charlie Brown's sister , the great pumpkin, and of course Snoopy.

Decent compliment to the movie

— feeling nerd
The Force Awakens (Star Wars) - Alan Dean Foster

The novelization of the movie provides some further insight into the thoughts of some of the characters and adds some extra background information that the movie glanced on or ignored. But the book could've used an extra fifty pages or more because everything felt rushed and each scene just abruptly comes and goes.

Reading progress update: I've read 13%.

The Force Awakens (Star Wars) - Alan Dean Foster

Unlike some I like to read he novelization of a movie afterwards to reinforce what I saw and to find additional insights I might have missed or that wasn't in the movie to begin with.
