Doctor Sleep: A Novel | Stephen King
post image

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.

ElizaMarie Super curious as to what you think of the movie. Please update! 1mo
Bookish.SAM Will do @ElizaMarie! Have you read the book? I‘m going to fully nerd-out before seeing the movie and re-watch the Shining (read that book not too long ago)... as well as the documentary Room 237. 1mo
ElizaMarie Yes. Well okay I read the Shinning ages ago. (I didn't do a re-read of it), but then I was able to watch it on the big screen (the Movies did this replay thing of it last month), then I re-read Doctor Sleep (had read it when it first came out but re-read it before the movie). Then I saw the movie. So.... I have a lot of feelings about it. But I don't want to spoil anything until after you see it (so please repost after you do).. 1mo

ElizaMarie Also I haven't seen the Documentary. Do you know if its streaming anywhere? Sounds like I might enjoy it! 1mo
Bookish.SAM @ElizaMarie ok... so we are clearly on the same page when it comes to prepping for Stephen King adaptations 😂😂😂 ... I haven‘t seen the doc streaming anywhere, I picked it up from the library after a friend recommended it. 1mo
JacqMac I‘m reading it right now, too. Pre movie. I‘m thinking I should have done a reread of The Shining first. But I did watch that movie before I started. lol 1mo
Bookish.SAM @JacqMac I‘ve been working through a bunch of Stephen King this year, so fortunately hit The Shining recently. I‘m pretty sure I‘ve only seen bits of the movie, so I‘m looking forward to getting fully immersed in the life of Danny Torrance before seeing Doctor Sleep 🤓 . If you‘re into King, it looks like there are a bunch more adaptations in the works... so get ready! 😆 1mo
JacqMac @Bookish.SAM Yes. I also have a reread of The Stand on my TBR. The cast for that one is amazing. I have high hopes. 1mo

The Regulators | Stephen King, Richard Bachman

Mehso-so

Reading The Regulators immediately after Desperation might not have been fair 😕
I flew through Desperation, creeped out and really enjoyed it. This was just OK for me.

The concept/relationship between the two books seemed like it would be amazing, but what I was hoping for/expecting just didn‘t pan out in the Regulators.

I wonder how I would have felt about this one had I read it first. 🤔

madamereadsalot1 I love Desperation too. I tried to start this one right after finishing Desperation but couldn't get into. I put it down figuring I needed a break between. I hope to go back to it, but I don't know if I will. 2mo

Desperation | Stephen King

I was late to the King game and surprised at how much more to his stories there is than the ‘horror‘ he‘s known for. In fact, I‘ve been surprised at the lack of horror in the books I‘ve read. And I take it back! This was all the horror, gore and creepiness I was expecting and from (seemingly) a less popular of his books!
(Not surprising, a multiverse Rose Madder link😉)

I flew thru this faster than any other #chunkster I‘ve read.

TrishB He writes a multitude of genres! I love that edition! 3mo

#ExpandedDT ... about mid-way into the book and it‘s taken an abrupt turn. Not unexpected from King but even the descriptions and writing feels a little different.

Insomnia | Stephen King

Took me some time to finish, it was a #chunkster... not that I‘d expect much else from King. It started with a bang, and had lots of great connections to his other works, It and The Dark Tower series in particular, but it did feel like it dragged a little. Not that that deterred my crying towards the end (even knowing what was coming)... As I‘m late to the Stephen King game, it‘s shocked me how many of his 📚 have had me blubbering 😭

BookwormM I also need to read The Wind Through the Keyhole to complete the whole dark tower series and as the library has this one I will hit that before Insomnia will be interested to follow how your journey progresses 😃👍 8mo

The Regulators | Stephen King, Richard Bachman
post image

The last few stragglers for my #expandedDT tour. I kept finding Desperation, but of course, I was insisting on having them both in the same edition. Finally picked up Desperation at the library sale succumbing to the idea that I wouldn‘t find The Regulators (because I‘m not into ordering it for $35).
BUT 2 days after buying Desperation, I came across The Regulators at Value Village for $5 👏

#booknerdthrills ❗️#matchingedition for a deal ❗️

While the pup was not thoroughly impressed, I managed to buckle down and finally finish this #chunkster today!
Loved it! So worth the time and effort it took. There was that one scene towards the end that felt pretty gratuitous and just odd and out of place (notoriously so, apparently), but otherwise I was totally engrossed right from the start. Now what to read after spending so much time in Derry ?!? 🤡

Freespirit I remember reading The Stand and being impressed if you haven't read it already! 8mo
Suet624 I loved The Stand. 8mo

#bookhaul and boot camp 💪

Slowly piecing together the last few books I need for my #expandedDT adventure
Stopped in at the library book sale after the gym and found these guys for about $3.50 🤗

Reggie I once read Desperation and The Regulators back to back and had nightmares for quite a few nights. 8mo
Bookish.SAM Really @Reggie ?!? Excellent! 😊 I‘m super late to the Stephen King game and surprised to find his work not as scary as I thought. I‘m struggling to find a copy of the Regulators and was going to skip it, due to the nature of the 2 books, but your comment is making me rethink that... the search shall continue 👍 8mo
