The seats on the back row of my classroom are not for the faint of heart! 😂
Wild Friday night!
My favorite part of this article was the mention of the 2016 evil clown sightings, which I somehow managed to forget about.
121 pages in and 1) I haven't met all the characters yet and 2) I've barely made a dent! Ugh!
"I'm doing the mashed potatoes all over it and I've got a broken arm" ... I'm undecided if this is the best line ever because its genius or because I adore mashed potatoes but either way I shall be passing this off as my own!
See my full review here:
Love this book. I had forgotten that the Turtle makes an appearance and has a speaking gig. Loved the way the book chronicled them as children and as adults at the same time, so you never knew how it ended until the end. Very surprised about the sex with the group as YA's. A few references to Dark Tower thrown in.
I‘m not usually much of a horror fan, but I love Stephen King‘s books. “It” is one of my favorites. It‘s a twentieth century classic, as far as I‘m concerned. A well thought out and intricate plot with fully realized three dimensional characters and a town cursed with a murderous clown of murky origin all combine to make one spellbinding, unforgettable novel. As good as the movie and TV adaptations have been, the novel is so much better. Read it.
I thought about something today. If Stephen King never wrote IT, would clowns be creepy or scary to anyone?
It's amazing how influential an author can be when they use their words the right (or maybe wrong) way.
So I‘m going to the clowns only screening of It: Chapter 2 in September. My costume arrived today. Wish me luck!
Thank you Audible for allowing me to enjoy one of Stephen King‘s bestsellers without lugging around a gigantic book everywhere I go. Adding an audio book into my rotation every now and again is so refreshing. Happy to be back on Litsy!
Do you guys prefer audio books or paper books?
I forgot how long this was! I first read It over a decade ago and decided on a reread with Chapter 2 coming out soon. Already slipping back into these characters feels so familiar even and I‘m hoping the reread stands up to my memory. Watson will just have to have some extra snuggles! 🤡🔪
New cover for “It” just in! What do you think of...it? 😁 This edition clocks in at almost 1,200 pages.
This #ship was berthed next to us in Cherbourg in May and in July made headlines when a brawl broke out in the dining room. Initial reports were that the fight started when someone came to the buffet dressed as a clown, but police and the cruise line have denied this. #letstraveljuly #youcantmakeupthisstuff
Starting with my reread of IT!🎈Given my schedule, I think it's likely I'll still be reading this when the film is at the tail end of its run in theatres 😄 I've been moved to a morning shift presently so have to leave home at five am and reading in sips when I can. Missing all of you!
#BFCr2 week 6 check in!
📚 7.5/7. Mainly cuz of the three graphic novels/comics I quickly read this week. Will have reviews of those going up over the course of the weekend. All the halves are because I‘m a stickler for accuracy.
🏊🏻♀️ 19944m/18000m. If I‘d realized how close I was to 20000m I would‘ve given myself an extra push today. The bizarre total is due to swimming in a 25yd pool and converting to metres.

• Using my Stephen King bookmark that @GarthRanzz made for the #KingAtoZ Litsy challenge last spring. I love pairing it with ANY Stephen King read! Thanks again, Scott, it's perfect! •

As predicted, I did NOT manage to read for 24 hours this weekend. Too much non-reading relaxation was involved. However, I finished A Song for Arbonne (review later) and made big dents in both An American Tragedy and It. (Yes, these are three VERY different books.)
Heading to bed now to read for another half hour before sleep.
Thanks to the #24in48 organizers for another great event!
#BFCr2 week 4 check in time!
I mentioned last week that I was attending my sister‘s wedding. It was great and a beautiful day ...and totally derailed all my reading and fitness plans. I‘m finally getting back on track this weekend.
📚 I‘m waaay behind with my reading and am sticking with my seven book goal for now, even though I‘m at 2/7. Will revisit this next week.
🏊🏻♀️ Need 4250m per week to meet my goal. Tough but doable!
This is embarrassing, but this book is too scary for me at this stage of my life. 🤦♀️ 😂 I‘m going to have to leave it and come back to it once my kids are older. At the moment I just can‘t do it without losing sleep
I was lucky to have won a competition which earned me this.
Being a big fan of Stephen King, I had never quite read this book because I had seen the movies long before I knew there were books.
This man has a very vivid imagination
Some people may not like his style, others worship the ground he walks on.
For me I find his writing style intriguing and definitely what I like to read on a quiet day when I have no children wanting me every 5 seconds.
I will never understand why editors don‘t take the red pen to Stephen King. BEEP BEEP, STEPHEN! Seriously, the concept and structure of the book is brilliant. It‘s the only reason I‘m not panning it. The most insane part is the pre-teen orgy, though.
I mean...DAMN. Really? Why do so many give this book a pass, despite that? Bev is a giant, grocery list of unforgivable female character tropes.
At the end of day 3 of #24B4Monday I haven't reached 24 hours or finished my 3rd book (which is not surprising as its 1153 pages) Today was a slower reading day, but I had a great reading weekend! Today I read 170 pages in 3 hours and 34 minutes, I'm leaving off around 1/3 of the way through this book at 18 hours. This was my first readathon and it was a lot of fun! Thanks all!
