Yeah, I didn't read Wayward Pines but I read "Run," "Snowbound" and...."Abandon."

Took a long time and wasn't able to meet my goal of finishing before seeing the musical (hell, the first AND second time), but finally finished Hamilton by Ron Chernow. Fascinating and loved it.

Just started reading Wanderers by Chuck Wendig, and so far it's pretty damn good. Bit difficult to put down. Almost finished with Michelle Obama's autobiography and enjoying it.
“But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.” - Martin Luther King, Jr
