Continuing on my re-read of the journey of Roland and his ka-tet. ❤❤ Blaine is a pain 🙃🙃
I really enjoyed the third book of the Dark Tower series. It's much more an epic quest harkening back to a lot of prior epics. I wish I'd gotten all the references, but I can say I ran to listen to Velcro Fly once I finished! But what a cliffhanger ending...
Thanks to #25in5 for getting me to read this for the #EpicKaTet!
Next up for #25in5 - trying to put a sizeable dent in The Waste Lands. I'm so far behind in the #EpicKatet buddy read I may never catch up, but I've had this out from the library for weeks so I'm giving it the old college try!
“A bell jingled overhead. The mild, spicy smell of old books hit him, and the smell was somehow like coming home.”
-Stephen King, The Waste Lands (The Dark Tower, #3) #bookshop #stephenking #bookstore
I finished The Waste Lands today and it made me eager to continue the series. After the struggle of The Gunslinger, The Drawing of the Three and The Waste Lands were surprisingly entertaining sequels. On to Wizard and Glass!
Like the previous book, I was struck by how cinematic this was, especially in terms of pace. It reads like a two part miniseries & both storylines have a satisfying build-up & payoff, revealing more of Roland's world & its denizens. Blaine was the highlight & seemed like Shirley Jackson (King‘s nod to her was sublime), Philip K. Dick & Thomas Harris‘s shared dream. And the throwback in the tag scene tucked between the twofold climax just made grin
1. This is one of my favorite t-Shirts, featuring Oy from the Dark Tower series.
2. Green is my favorite color. The only colors I dislike are ones associated with the NY Giants, Dallas Cowboys or Atlanta Braves.
3. When I do eat breakfast it‘s a banana. Today I forgot my banana 🤨
4. Sadly I‘m not very creative.
5. I always have my bad with things I may need for my guys at work. Like snacks. Also, Murder Elf.
Gets better and better at every reread! The Ka-tet draws nearer to the Dark Tower as they follow the Path of the Beam. And every step closer strengthens their bond with each other and the reader's bond with them.
King's imagination is astounding! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Long day!!!! Just got home and planning to work a little more but then hope to dive back in to #TheWasteLands. I was really far behind on this one but hope to finish by Thursday! Hope everyone is having a nice week so far.
I've been dabbling in wine in a can. Some are just AWFUL but have found a couple I enjoy. This one is alright. A little sweet but OK. Anyone tried this one before?

What do you believe causes things to happen?
Is it Fate? Are your choices and your life written out before you even existed?
Do you believe in "what will be, will be"?
Sunday football means cooking and reading for me! #Shadow is enjoying all the snuggle time today. #Shippy @Zelma
I am catching up quickly for #EpickatetRead. I love this series so much! It's so good. I am definitely catching things I didn't catch before and have so many things I want to discuss with everyone this weekend! #TheDarkTower #Roland
Finished this morning. I was already committed to finishing the series, but with this third book, I really started to enjoy it. Looking forward to the next one. After that ending, I may have to start early!

#Chloe and I are all snuggled in for the night. She has a lot to say tonight. 😆 I am hoping to catch up on this one for #EpicKatetRead (I am so behind!!!) so I can be on time for the next one which is my favorite of the series (besides A Wind Through The Keyhole)

I am riding the crazy train,
Following the beam,
To the Dark Tower...
Loved this volume I love the riddles, I even love Blaine and especially love Oy everyone needs an Oy in their lives 💕💕💕
The Waste Lands is book 3 from Stephen King‘s epic saga The Dark Tower. Roland, Eddie, Susannah and Jake are moving closer to the Dark Tower. The book seems like a haunting dream that is breath taking. The reader is quickly drawn in. I loved all the riddles Blaine asked the group. I‘m looking forward to book 4, Wizard and Glass. I recommend this series for those who love action fantasy!

The journey‘s really hotting up now!
Looking forward to the re-read of the next one which is my fav!
Train reading. Just left my son in his new flat in York 😞 feeling like I‘ve left a limb behind....
I finished The Waste Lands. I enjoyed this book much more than the previous two. While Stephen King has in this book created the creepiest train ever he also created one of the cutest creatures in all of literature, the billy bumbler, Oy. I'm looking forward to the next one.
1. Hiking with my family, and being out in the woods makes me happy.
2. Only 2 for now. A Study in Emerald and The Waste Lands.
3. I miss my old favorite hiking and fishing spots.
4. A very low book budget.😑💸💸
5. I would take the million and use part of it to destroy those who made the no book rule. Then I would use the rest of the money to get a hermit cottage full of books.
Repost for @Andrew65 :
As we are getting closer (Yey) to the #EpicKatetBuddyRead of #TheWasteLands, I thought I‘d repost the schedule. @MinDea is doing a great job of leading the #EpicBuddyRead of #TheDarkTower Series. So far we have read books 1 & 2 and are just about to start book 3. If you‘ve been along for the whole ride, hope you are looking forward to it! I know I am! Feel free to jump aboard even if you have not read books 1 & 2. #Katet
How's it going guys? Those of you who have been able to read along, how did you like this week's section?

I'd been stuck on the third book long ago! I put aside Jane Austen for a while! I want to dive back into the world of the Dark Tower! Hi, #Roland Deschain! 🔫
Posting for @MinDea for a bit for our #EpicBuddyRead . How did everyone like the second section? Discussion in comments! If I've tagged anyone that has said they have stopped reading, I apologize.

Hey guys. Just checking in to see how everyone is liking The Wast Lands. Thoughts? Comments? Questions? Liking or disliking it?

1. Star Wars or the animated Hobbit movie.
2. Fries. I like onion rings, but I can always eat fries. I had fries and cheese curds earlier today.
3. I listen to a little bit of everything. I always seem to fall back on Social Distortion or Dream Theater, but lately I've been listening to Greta Van Fleet, Frank Turner, and the Greatest Showman soundtrack a bunch.
4. The Waste Lands
5. Will do!
I just finished this week's section of our #EpicKaTetRead for the Waste Lands.
I feel like Roland's katet are finally (really) beginning their journey for the tower.
What a great beginning. I don't really remember much besides the ending of this book so I get excited every time I sit down to spend time with this story! 🤠
Book 3 starts today for #EpicKaTetRead (I got a small head start on it last week already) and holy cow it starts with a bang! ❤️
The Waste Lands is the book I was most excited to re-read as I remember so little of it.
Thanks to @MinDea for organizing it all.

1. My books & shelves are pretty much my life! 🤘
2. My roomates kid got a hover board and I got drunk and rode it to 7-11. 😂
3. So. Much. Cheese. 😁
4. 🔫☠️👢🤠🗼I started the Waste lands yesterday for #EpicKaTetRead (I started early cuz I was excited to get it going). 👍
5. My left wrist. Once skiing and once rollerblading. 😔
Been incredibly busy at work and most probably missed a key post, but do we have a date when we are starting the tagged book? I am going away at the end of the week so Ned to sort what books I take.
#EpicKaTetRead #TheDarkTower #StephenKing
By the way, love this cover! 💕
I listened to both these books on audio last week. I am re-reading as I finished book 5 (Wolves of Calla) last time but never fully completed the series. I am getting much more out of the second reading this time and enjoying it very much.
