159 posts | 259 read | 8 reading | 52 to read
In the fertile lands of the East, the farming community has been warned the wolves are coming back. Four gunslingers, led by Roland of Gilead, are also coming their way. And the farmers of the Calla want to enlist some hard calibers. Torn between protecting the innocent community and his urgent quest, Roland faces his most deadly perils as he journey through the Mid-World towards the Dark Tower.

A book, a mug of tea, and a gorgeous sunny day. What is better than this? #LifeIsGood

mcipher I love your fire pit! Or is it a planter? Either way I like it. 😆 (edited) 2mo
Amiable @mcipher Thanks! That‘s a planter box. The fire pit is actually to the right, out of picture range. 😀 2mo

Tea, homemade almond-raspberry scones, and a chunkster read: My Saturday morning is all booked. 😎📚

Kaye I‘ve never had a scone in my life. Would you say they have the consistency of a biscuit or a cookie ? And are they sweet or more bread flavored ? Do they have frosting in them ? They look really good. 3mo
Amiable @kaye These were made by my boss, who is an amazing baker. She won‘t share her secret recipe, so I don‘t exactly know how she makes them. But most scones I‘ve had are kind of hard and crunchy. These are soft and light, like a dough biscuit. And she puts homemade raspberry preserves inside as a layer. They are my favorite things that she makes! 3mo
Kaye They sound like Biting Into Heaven. 3mo

Amiable @kaye In an ideal world, my boss would quit her job (healthcare marketing communications) and open her own bakery. But she‘s not brave enough—yet—to take the leap into self-employment. So she indulges her passion for baking —and brings it all to us in the office! It‘s the best of all worlds—I get to eat wonderful home-bakes goodies...and I don‘t have to be the one to bake them! 😀 3mo
Kaye Yes you‘re lucky you get to sample all the items. It‘d probably be scary to take out a loan huge enough to open your own bake shop , unless you were independently wealthy or had a partner who made enough money ( and had insurance) to keep you floating. I used to like baking, but not anymore. Being a housewife for almost 42 years has cured me of that. 3mo
Amiable @kaye I‘ve been a wife for almost 28 years—and I never liked to cook or bake! My poor husband. 😀 3mo

It only took me three months to get through this tome 🤦🏼‍♀️ I enjoyed the second half of the novel but I really got lost in the first half. It was hard for me to pick up the book and read and I just felt like this whole side quest didn‘t further the plot a lot until the last fifty pages. This was still a good addition to the series though, and I can‘t wait to finish it! It‘s only taken me a year to get through book five at this point 😂

Liatrek Lol! I‘m in the same boat I started the series over a year ago and this is the one I‘m currently stuck on. I‘m half through but not actively reading it. I‘ll hopefully pick it up again soon. 5mo

Late post for the #EpicKatetRead. I loved this re-read more than the first time. Our katet grows individually as well as together. So much going on and although the story of the Calla folks is concluded, the tension remains. You can feel we‘re almost at the end of our journey!

LazyDays I liked this one a lot. I love the whole series. 7mo

Yay! I finally finished it! I think that this is my 2nd favorite of the series so far. I loved Callahan's back story. I now really want to read Salem's Lot. Jake really came into his own by the end. Eddie keeps getting more likeable, and Roland and Susannah are both full of surprises. I'm ready for The Song of Susannah now. This story keeps getting better.

KatieanneF A terrific series. I don‘t love Salem‘s lot but it has some really powerful passages and makes this 5th book more impactful, for sure. Enjoy!! 7mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai I am ridiculously behind on this buddy read. 😖 7mo
MinDea 😁😁😁😁😁 Nicely done! 7mo
shawncapito @KatieanneF I tried to read Salem's Lot after I read this book the first time, but i couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll try it again soon so I can learn more about Callahan. He's one of my favorite characters in the series. 6mo

Finished Wolves of the Calla, which is book 5 in the Dark Tower Series. The epic journey continues & this is one of the best books in the series so far. A lot of action in this one and leaves off with quite a cliff hanger which makes you want to quickly move onto book 6. Loved the action in here talking about the assassination of Kennedy, & although this was written a few years before writing 11.22.63 you can see he had the idea to write the book.

Andrew65 @MinDea if people are caught up I‘d suggest continuing whilst we remember the story. 😂 @BookwormM (edited) 7mo
MinDea @Andrew65 probably a good call! I'll work on a schedule for the next book. You guys are seriously killing this buddy read. I'm so happy and proud of all of you for sticking with this! 7mo

Interesting discussion about abortion.

Apologies in advance I am going to read ahead as I can‘t stop now. I will then be hitting Salem‘s Lot and Look Homeward Angel as companion reads.

BookwormAHN There was a part of me during this discussion that I wanted Roland to just shoot Callahan. I've read a little past this part so I think I'm going to break from it for a while and let everyone catch up. 8mo

Andrew65 @BookwormM I did this as an audiobook, and it is one of my favourite audiobooks. 8mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa There a chart for that...let me see if I can find it again. 8mo
BookwormM @Riveted_Reader_Melissa that would be amazing if you could find it 8mo
MinDea @BookwormM there are so many and The Dark Tower series brings so many of his previous characters and world's together. They say this series is the Apex of all his world's. So you'll find a lot of other characters in here. I'll take a few of my favorite King books but jot necessarily connected to The Dark Tower. 8mo
MinDea My first King book I remember reading and made me love him 💙 8mo
MinDea Seriously these short stories have stuck with me! 8mo
MinDea I've never read this but want to 8mo
MinDea This was an interesting one and was not like his other books but only Bachman I have read. 8mo

BookwormM @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @MinDea my TBR is really suffering now 🤣🤣 I need to download the King chart and work out what to read. Buddyread of The Stand sounds good 8mo

Is there a way to create a group of people to tag? As I can never remember who is in our KaTet🤣🤣🤣 if I have tagged the wrong people forgive me xxx

PS I have finished this week‘s section desperately resisting moving on.

BookwormAHN I think his dislike of Trump has been rather epic 😸 8mo
TrishB @BookwormAHN exactly! 8mo
Andrew65 @BookwormAHN I think that can be said of quite a few where Trump is concerned. @TrishB (edited) 8mo

#EpicKaTet diving into this chunkster now if I had know how big it was beforehand I would have got an ebook version as this will not be easy in my hands #ankylosingspondylitis

BookwormAHN I chose the audio book which is 26 hours 😺 9mo
TrishB I have a full set but have brought them all again on kindle for exactly that reason! 9mo
Andrew65 @BookwormAHN I‘m with you I used credits to buy them as audiobooks. 9mo
MinDea @BookwormM I think I have an ebook copy of this if you're interested. I can send it to you. 9mo
BookwormM @Mindea that would be great 👍 but I am in the UK does that still work 9mo

#EpicKaTetRead-ers! I decided to continue on the journey with Roland and his new ka-tet. I felt that if we went into A Wind Through the Keyhole we would be spending another couple of months without them and I felt that might be too long. I hope everyone is OK with this. If you'd prefer to read AWTtK next feel free! It really can be read at any time during this series and you can always catch up in the buddy read!

Andrew65 Sounds like a good plan 👏 Thanks for this @MinDea 9mo
EadieB I‘m happy with that too! @MinDea (edited) 9mo

MinDea I'm glad @EadieB. It seemed a mix between waht to read next so I made an executive decision. I hope everyone is happy with moving forward. 🤞 9mo
MinDea I don't remember Wolves of the Calla at all so I am super excited to read it again. I think I set it down for months when I first read it because I struggled with it. I hope that doesn't happen again this time 9mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai Yaaay! Can't wait! 🤸‍♂️🚪🤸‍♂️ 9mo

MinDea @TK421 hope life slows down for you guys and you can get back to reading! 9mo
TK421 @MinDea me too. Over the last 5 weeks I've been averaging around 70 hrs. I'm ready for harvest to be done. It should slow down soon, and I can get to several books that I would love to be able to read. 9mo
MinDea Oh man @TK421. 70 hours a week! 😱 Brutal. 9mo
BookwormM Super excited can‘t wait to dive back into mid world 9mo

Awesome installment in the series! We have lots of action, western gunslingers, robots, vampires, time travel, a priest from ‘Salem‘s Lot, and a Crimson King! What more do you need? The ka-tet is back in business!

1. Work, work, and more work! 😡
2. The Dark Tower series is awesome! I‘m taking my time to make it last.
3. How to choose just one? Can I say vegetables and have it count as one entry? 😜
4. Nope! I was a book nerd to the bone!!
Have a wonderful three day weekend, Littens!! ❤️

1. Didn‘t have a tv, so didn‘t have one.
2. I‘m on the Keto diet right now, so I would scarf either down with equal relish and complete abandonment of all pretensions to ladylike decorum! 🤤
3. Same as always—classic rock
4. Also Zone One and Les Miserables
5. Will do! And Happy Friday, Littens!!

KathyWheeler Wolves is my favorite Dark Tower book. 11mo

These are the books that I HOPE to read in August—as to whether that will happen is another story. Unfortunately, school is about to start back up, so more attention will go there. 😭

Aims42 I‘ve read ‘Confederacy of Dunces‘ and ‘Illuminae‘ from your stack. Loved them both!!! Happy reading 🤓 (edited) 12mo

Now time to finish book five of The Dark Tower series before this month‘s #indiebuddyreads book Circe. 😊

Redheadrambles @Neale yes I need to get back into these as well. 12mo
Neale This fifth book is really good. It has shades of The Magnificent Seven ( or The Seven Samurai) about it. Mind you I have only read the first four chapters. 😊 12mo
Redheadrambles I am up to No. 3 - I really enjoyed No. 2 12mo
Neale I am finding they get better as they progress. 😊 12mo

Bailedbailed

MAJOR BAIL ALERT:

I am officially bailing from the Dark Tower series, with nearly 5 of 7 books finished and thousands of pages read.

I just can‘t take it anymore. Stephen King has an incredible imagination, but if he sidetracks one more time I will scream. I mean it.

I‘ve also cheated and have looked up the plots of the remaining novels so I now know what happens.

This is my bravest bail yet. 🤯

TobeyTheScavengerMonk This is where I stopped my journey to the Tower too, years ago. 13mo
TrishB I love the meandering 😁 13mo
BarbaraBB Haha, great post! It must have taken courage to quit once you‘ve come so far! 13mo

Moray_Reads Sometimes it's got to be done. Years ago I bailed on the Wheel of Time series after 11 books. I couldn't take it any more and I by that point I hated every single character. I too cheated and read the plot summary on Wikipedia to find out how the series ended! 13mo
Libby1 @TobeyTheScavengerMonk - phew! I‘m not alone, then. 13mo
Libby1 @TrishB - so glad you do! I was just getting more and more annoyed. Maybe I‘m not as patient as you are! 🤭😂 13mo
Libby1 @BarbaraBB - I must admit that I DID feel very brave. 13mo
Libby1 @Moray_Reads - that is EXACTLY what I did today. I‘m glad I‘m not alone! 13mo
CouronneDhiver Well done 👍🏽 Onward and upward 13mo
Cinfhen Oh WOW!!! That is a BOLD bail!!! 13mo
Libby1 Thanks, @Cinfhen ! I felt bold doing it. 13mo
Libby1 @CouronneDhiver - thanks! 13mo

Well. That was a doozy. Light sabers? Snitches? Dr. Doom?!? The Dark Tower books are breaking my brain.

Even though this one ended with a cliffhanger, these books are so intense (in the best way), that I think I need to wait until school‘s out to jump back in.

#TuesdayTidbits Thanks for the tag @JenlovesJT47

1. Dark Tower series. I really want to re-read this series but it's just so damn long! 😱

2. Grilled Cheese & tomatoe soup. 👌

3. Tabboo, Penny Dreadful, Peaky Blinders.

4. I tag @GarthRanzz @MiyakoBunny @MinDea @Serotonin @vivastory

TK421 You should totally do the Dark Tower buddy read that @MinDea is starting! 1y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @TK421 I know. I suck at long buddy reads though. I'm so easily distracted by shiny new things. I might try. We'll see. 1y
Serotonin I‘ve been dying to revisit my favorite grilled cheese eatery waaaaay on the other side of the nearby town 😆 Sooo good!! 1y

GrilledCheeseSamurai @MinDea can you tag for the read, please? I was planning on a 2018 re-read so this might be the push I need to get it done. 👌 1y
MinDea Absolutely! 1y

It‘s Friday and is going to be a perfect storm of crazy- Senior Skip Day, 4/20, potential walk outs with heightened police presence, Spirit Week, and Student/Faculty basketball game 4th period. Add in the fact that there are more and more teachers “sick” on Fridays as we get closer to June, and today promises to be a doozy. I will be caffeinated and counting the hours until I am back with Roland and crew.

1. Via @bookriot I believe....
2. Yes, I just keep a running tally using the notes app on my phone.
3. Considering that my TBR has easily tripled in size because of Litsy, I‘d have to say yes. 😃😃
4. Wolves of the Calla. Hangin‘ with the ka-tet. 😉
