Saw the movie today. I'm pretty sure this is my favorite King adaptation of all time!
It‘s feeling like a ‘stay in bed and read‘ kind of morning 😊
I‘m desperately trying to get through this book before going to see the movie later this week.

Saw Doctor Sleep a second time earlier today. Stellar adaptation with a whole lot of heart; something, in my opinion, that was missing from the 1980 film which I've always thought of as a great movie but a bad adaptation. I read a tweet describing what Flanagan has accomplished as a feat of cinematic diplomacy, which is a neat way to put it. The way he strung together elements from both books, especially towards the end, while ⬇️
Comfort food on a snowy day. Tomato sandwich and a cup of Yorkshire gold. The teen is nagging me to read this one, so he can borrow it. He‘ll be happy that it‘s up next. lol

I have to read it before seeing the movie! And tomorrow I have a 4 (!!!) hour tattoo scheduled so I should get plenty of reading done!
#FeatureFriday : Movie I‘m looking forward to seeing... duh! In less than 2 hours I‘ll be seeing this movie ... (silent scream/squeal)

I ordered this book at the beginning of October to read before Halloween but it looks like I‘m going to keep the spooky books alive in November 👻🧟♀️🎃
So I‘m not sure how much of #BookishBingo I plan on doing. It has a lot prompts that aren‘t really what I like. But we will see.
I don‘t do traditional TBR. I mean I have tons of books I‘d like to read but then kinda let my mood decide when it comes time to pick my next book. But I started this one in October so... it‘s counting :)
Finished just in time for the movie‘s release! A passable sequel to “The Shining;” I just wish it carried over more of the creepiness.
As mentioned in previous posts I read The Shining last week. I talked about how terrifying it was, I didn't mention that since finishing it it has become a new favorite King. I needed to spend a few days letting it mentally simmer. My feelings about Doctor Sleep are a bit more ambiguous. I greatly appreciate that King didn't try to duplicate The Shining, which would be impossible anyways. King is a different writer reflecting on a different👇
Ok I need to talk to the Walmart merchandiser. They had Doctor Sleep but not The Shining next to it! How do you have the second book of a sequel but not the first?? My wanted to read Dr. Sleep but didnt know it was the second book so I wouldnt let her buy it bc she hadnt read The Shining. If they wouldve had both I wouldve bought both therefore a bigger sale for Walmart. Sorry rant over.
My plans of finishing both of King's novels by yesterday were somewhat thwarted by an impromptu decision to spend Halloween night rereading favorite Poe stories & an 8 hour ER visit with one of my individuals last night. Currently halfway through Dr. Sleep, my only plans for tomorrow are going to watch a movie & finishing my book.
I absolutely loved this book! Even better than The Shining imo. Some may not agree and that‘s ok. This is one of my favorite reads of 2019. Danny is such a great character. I‘m excited to see the movie next month but I‘m trying not to set my expectations too high. 5⭐️
I‘m doing something I normally don‘t do here and taking time out to tell you all how effing awesome this book is! I‘m only about 1/3 of the way through, but I‘m totally hooked! You know how it is, when you find a book you really love? And I‘m torn between wanting to binge read it the rest of the day or savor it slowly, because you can‘t get your first time reading something or watching something back (oh how I wish I could w/Mad Men!) Rant over 🤓
Who has read this? I‘m torn between Starting this or The Institute.
Sometimes over exposure inundates us to sleep on things that we should be wide awake for. Doctor Sleep is prime example of my frosty bottle of Hatorade. This where are they now of little Danny Torrance had me up real late and feeding my kids PBJ for dinner just revisiting the fact that Stephen King is GOAT! Get ready for some serious Danny and Abra antics y‘all...
Thanks for the opportunity!!
So October is my birthday month (14th) and I love all things Halloween. I‘m gonna be watching tons of horror this month, lounge around in my fav pjs and read horror (I can‘t fully plan for a costume and stuff I travel for work and never know where I‘ll be so I usually miss out on parities)
Oh but my hubby is here this weekend (prebirthday) so we are going on a haunted tour :)
I may love this book even more than The Shining, albeit for different reasons. Doctor Sleep is so much more than just a sequel. It‘s not nearly as scary, but still full of delicious creepiness. We get more info on the shine, a whole new bunch of baddies, an excellent cast of new characters, and visits from some old ones. I smiled, laughed, panicked, and cried. I absolutely love Danny.
SK is a national treasure.🖤
#screamathon book 2
I‘m out with the dogs and my audiobook bright and early this chilly fall day... it‘s perfect, breezy weather (finally), Stephen King is fabulous (as always), Will Patton is an amazing narrator (as always) and for the first time in a very long time, I don‘t think I will do a damn thing today except books.
Happy Saturday, y‘all 🍁
The books in my #screamathon package from @fandom_hellspawn99 🍂🎃💀☠️👻
Doctor Sleep (The Shining Part 2), The Amityville Horror first edition, and the Vintage edition of Angela Carter‘s The Bloody Chamber (and my walking eyeball!). #horror #october
There‘s no day quite like library day. I have such an exciting stack, I‘m not sure where to start (but I‘ve got a couple I should really finish first... and I‘ve been thinking about re-reading/finally finish the series for The Gunslinger for so long!) The one you can‘t quite see is Gravity Is The Thing but I think the others are legible. 🥰
