I completely forgot to share my books this week! Trying to decide whether to start this one next or The Handmaid‘s Tale 🤔.

JacqMac I started this one first. I do not regret my choice. It‘s really good. 4h
candc320 @JacqMac oh yay! Ok you‘ve made my choice for me....I have very weak willpower 😆 4h

Melissa_J It‘s always nice when a beloved author doesn‘t disappoint. 12h

My heart is in PIECES. Goddammit I can't remember the last time I rooted so hard for characters in a book. King absolutely KILLED IT with the kids in this story. Think the Losers Club from IT combined with the powers of Charlie from Firestarter. I couldn't put it down. If anyone needs me I will be over here, in my feelings about this book.

Now all of my library books have come in at once but I‘m determined to get to some of them at least. So, that being said this just came in the mail today and I‘m beyond happy about it! I can‘t wait. To read it. Only thing is that I have so much schoolwork to do that I don‘t know if I can get to it right away.

So some people on audible have already finished SK‘s new 18 hr audiobook, including this fellow who is very confused about centuries. Normally I try not to make fun of people, but Mr. King: author of the future!! 🤯🤪

I kept on trying to give him a typo benefit of the doubt, but 🤷🏻‍♀️

MelissaSue81 I don‘t always like SK but this review makes me want to read the new book. 5d
Megabooks @MelissaSue81 I have actually never read him, but the blurb sounded interesting, so I figured I‘d read some reviews when I saw Santino Fontana was the narrator. 5d
lele1432 Was he thinking in decades or...🤔🤔🤔 5d
See All 8 Comments
Tex2Flo The numbers for the centuries always confuse me, too. I have to just say “the 1900s” or “the 2000s”. Can‘t keep straight which way to change it. 5d
Megabooks @lele1432 But it‘s not the 2020s yet either?? I knew what he was going for, I think, but I just couldn‘t figure out how he could be so off 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ 5d
Megabooks @Tex2Flo It would‘ve made more sense to say that. I just don‘t see where he got the 22nd century??? 5d
Ruthiella Clearly he has a time machine and knows that King will be writing into the next century! 😀 4d

So now it can be told...
(The names are withheld to protect the ~ involved 😜)
Saturday a friend and I went to my neighborhood wine walk. We stopped in the bookstore ... and my first step in, I saw a copy of this for sale ... 3 days early!
We asked about it ~ “somebody” put it out😏 ~ but only 1.
I gave it up to her, knowing I‘d get it today, & could listen too.
But I discovered my superpower:
Knowing release dates of my favorite authors🦹🏻‍♀️

I‘ve been wanting this so badly since I saw Santino Fontana narrated it. I adore him so much, it kicked it up my list and I signed up for Libro.fm - use code SWITCH to get 3 audiobooks for 14.99, sharing my link below 🖤
http://libro.fm/referral?rf_code=lfm66906

Idk what to pick for my other two audiobooks now tho. Suggestions?

I decided to start this instead of The Testaments because it‘s due back to the library first. I‘m 125 pages in and have so much dread already, and there‘s some people that need their comeuppance rull quick.

Also, this statistic gives me heartburn.
