I ended up loving this series. I admit the first two books I didn't like very much. I loved the third. The seventh was a good ending to the Tower series. There were quite a few deaths, two of which about did me in. More about those in the comments ⬇️☠⬇️ #epickatet #epickatetread

BookwormAHN Okay so Jake's and Oy's death about killed me, especially Oy's. Could King have made his more horrible. Poor little guy 😿 4mo
KathyWheeler When I first read it, I was so mad with how it ended, but I‘ve since come to see that the non-ending makes sense and could even have been predicted given the whole “ka is a wheel” thing. Then, also, this time around, it looks like Roland‘s story might end differently as he has the Horn of Eld for the first time. 4mo
Karkar I did not like the first two books either the first time. However once I went back and started them the second time they were so much better as you pick up little bits that you miss the first time. 4mo

BookwormAHN @KathyWheeler I wonder if he had paid more attention to the different rooms in the tower that he could have found other things to help his chances of ending it. Although in the first book when he is having his palaver with Walter, he does tell him that they have had this conversation before. So the ending was entirely shocking. 4mo
BookwormAHN @Karkar I plan to eventually do that. I'm sure I've missed s few things. 4mo
KathyWheeler @BookwormAHN He probably could have, but he was so focused on the one goal that he didn‘t pay attention. Oh, if you read them again, the audiobooks are a good way to do it, if you lime audio. (edited) 4mo

Finally completed my reread for the #EpicKatetRead. This was my least favorite but still filled with all the strange elements and twists only Sai King can dream up! And the good news is -- "one more turn of the path, and then we reach the clearing". Can't wait for the end!

TrishB Missing @MinDea to chivvy us along! 5mo

I finally have my immediate read TBR ready to go. I've been wanting to read several of these books for a while now. I need to start Song of Susannah for the #EpicKaTetRead and then I'm going to start on the rest. This year I shall turn Mount TBR into a slightly smaller mountain, maybe even a large hill.

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Perdido Street Station! That is easily in my top 15 of ALL-TIME. 6mo
bookaholic1 You have a good set of books there, enjoy!! 6mo
kristincatastrophic There are definitely some good ones in that stack. 6mo
tonyahoswalt I love Furiously Happy and Jenny Lawson in general! Hmm, I was disappointed that I didn't like Uprooted more. 6mo

MinDea @collegecatlady on a different note someone is sending you a make up package for #FeedAReader. Should be there around end of month. Again, I'm so sorry for the issues you've had with this swap. 😫 6mo
Andrew65 Still not been able to start this yet. Currently reading two Chunksters, 944 Pages and 768 Pages. When I have finished these I shall get to it and read through and catch up. 6mo
Andrew65 @TrishB Ditto! 6mo
Andrew65 @MinDea 😂😂😂😂Looks like a similar theme for all of us! 6mo
collegecatlady No problem! Thanks for letting me know! 6mo
MinDea @Andrew65 I'm honestly relieved we're all in the same boat cause I am so behind and I really wnat to catch up! 6mo
Andrew65 @MinDea We‘ve still got over a mo th to finish this book and it is shorter than the previous ones. I‘m sure I‘ll finish by 17th Feb. 6mo
AnansiGirl Glad to know we‘re all on the same path with this one. I was slammed with overdrive/libby ebooks I was on wait list all downloading on the same day and Song of Susannah keeps getting shoved aside. 6mo
BookwormM Is there any update on when we will hit the final book? 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
BookwormM Perfect timing to start the next book 7mo

Finally getting to this - only two books behind with the #EpicKatetread #epicbuddyread, LOL! Speed reading over the next few weeks, I think, now that work and life may be calming down a bit😀
@MinDea

MinDea I'm 2 books behind too! 😆😆😆 Glad you're still picking up the series when you can! 7mo
ScientistSam @MinDea glad I'm not the only one! Where is everyone "supposed" to be according to the schedule? We'll see if I can catch up. Really enjoying The Waste Lands - my favorite so far! 7mo
MinDea I think this week we are "supposed" to be finishing the last chapters of Wolves of the Calla with the discussion this Sunday ??? I haven't even started the book. ??? 7mo
ScientistSam @MinDea oof! Guess I'm closer to three books behind then! But I think I may finish The Waste Lands tonight... 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.
#EpicBuddyRead #EpicKaTetRead @MinDea

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

Wolves of the Calla | Stephen King

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.

MinDea 😁😁😁😁😁 7mo
BookwormM I am currently visiting Father Callahan in Salem‘s Lot 👍 7mo

Andrew65 @MinDea How are you going? 7mo
MinDea I am still making my way through Wizard and Glass 😒 I have switched over to audio so hopefully that will help speed me along! Do we want to start the next book in January or take a break? 7mo
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
Andrew65 @MinDea Can‘t leave without knowing how it ends! 😳 7mo
