Night Shift | Stephen King

I‘m glad I re-read this one. I can see connections to some of his other works (Salem‘s Lot for one). With my attention span, I do better with short stories sometimes. I‘m working my way through King‘s works - according to my list from #losersclub, The Stand is next. Not such a short story, that one…

I normally don‘t enjoy short story collections, but this one is exceptional. I enjoyed every one of these stories. I just kept thinking to myself “Man, this guy can write!” It really is amazing how he can create interesting characters and plots full of suspense and dread that can be read in 10 minutes. I think my favorite story is “I am a Doorway.”

Kayla.Adriena I actually have this , I originally got it cause I'm a night shifter, you're review makes me want to read it now! 7mo
Beatlefan129 @Kayla.Adriena I used to work night shift too, and there is definitely something about being awake at unnatural hours that lends itself to weird happenings 7mo

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ https://suspensebookreviews.home.blog/2021/04/17/night-shift-by-stephen-king/

This was a collection of 20 short stories from the master story teller himself. I loved each story as much as the last. Each was unique and terrifying in their own rights, it was hard to pick a favorite. A must read for all King fans or a great place to start if you have never read his work.

Twainy I was just staring at this at B&N last night. I knew I shoulda bought it. 1y

Book Spin Pick: Night Shift by Stephen King. Yes!!! A collection of short stories from my favorite author! Something to pull me out of this slump of books I just have not been connecting with. King never fails to disappoint. Hopefully I can get back on a 4/5 ⭐ streak after this one.

I‘ve never loved a collection of short stories this much. Perfect lengths for reading in the car while between errands, in waiting rooms, or for a few minutes with my coffee in the morning. My favorites were: Graveyard Shift, The Mangler, Trucks, The Ledge, and The Lawnmower Man. Sidenote: there are so many murderous machines in this collection!!

Up next in my #readingStephenKing project: THE STAND!!

I did not expect to enjoy this one much at all because I tend to be bored with short story collections. However, I think these stories are awesome. So fun to read. I‘m about half thru. So far, my favorites are The Mangler (about the killer laundry ironing/folding machine) and Graveyard Shift (about the giant blind and legless rats).

Up next in my #readingStephenKing project!! I tend to read short story collections a little more slowly, one at a time. So this one may take a little longer for me to finish. But I‘m very excited to get started!!

intothehallofbooks @TheNeverendingTBR Yes!! I started reading them at the beginning of this year. I‘m trying to read them in the order they were published. I‘ve read Stephen King‘s multiverse is huge and characters show up in multiple books sometimes, so I‘m hoping that since I started from the beginning I‘ll be able to catch the overlap. 1y

This is a great collection of short stories. The most famous story of course being Children of the Corn. But all of these are scary in their own way- from the bizarre to the downright terrifying. A great place to start with Stephen King if you're looking to get a taste of his work. 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I‘m currently reading “Graveyard Shift”. Along with it and the marsh rat scene in another book (tagged in spoiler below) I read this year, I can say, without a doubt, that I don‘t like rats. 😳 🤢 I probably already knew this, but it‘s definitely confirmed now.

🐀 = not cute

Soubhiville I‘m the weird one who does like rats and snakes. (I‘ve had both as pets.) 2y
Reggie Did you read about the guy in New York City who fell through a sink hole and landed in a nest of rats. When they interviewed him later he said he kept his mouth closed so none of them would go in his mouth. 🤭 2y
Bookzombie @Soubhiville I could sort of handle one in a clean environment probably. Maybe. Lol. My SIL has had snakes as pets in the past too. 2y
Bookzombie @Reggie No, I didn‘t read that! 🤢 Although good thinking on his part. It‘s one of those things that I hope all the horror books and movies have prepared me for. 2y

Reading classic King is like visiting with an old friend. 💚

This is one of my favorite short story collections, with one of my favorite stories, Strawberry Spring. As always King delivers a wide range of stories in this book, several of which have been made into movies.

Despite what her expression might suggest, Suki would be fearless against a real rat. We read Night Shift because of its mutant rat story but that ended up being one of the weaker stories in the collection. There were some pretty fun ones here. This was the last book we discussed in person before everything shut down. ☹️

My final time for the #24B4Monday — not too shabby considering I only got 5 hours during my last #readathon !

All total I read 10 graphic novels, finished Night Shift and started Salem‘s Lot. Overall very productive!

I actually started my timer over at midnight because I‘m going to keep track of my reading time throughout this week. It seems to motivate me so I can‘t complain!

Andrew65 It motivates me too, and allows me to identify when my reading drops. A great time, well done. 👏👏👏👍😊🥳🍾🥂🙌 3y

At the mall, the other day - I found myself picking up Night Shift again. It was my first King story collection, with the original cover book that must have disappeared over time. Clearance sales at the Hot Topic cosplay shop, got me a vampire lace collar. 🦇🤓 I just noticed, yesterday was World Goth Day. I did catch The Addams Family TV movies.
