Erinsuereads I've got a first edition with the artsy colorful cover. I'll post it when I go to lunch. I got it at a garage sale for a buck! 5mo
BarkingMadRead @ErinSueMreads that‘s amazing 🤩 5mo
5feet.of.fury Oooh I just recently grabbed this book from th thrift shop, maybe I‘ll hop in with you. 5mo
BarkingMadRead @5feet.of.fury I can add you to my tag list if you‘d like 5mo
Bklover I liked duma key. So different from the other ones 5mo
BarkingMadRead @Bklover it‘s been so long since I read it, it feels like reading it for the first time! 5mo

Duma Key: A Novel | Stephen King

Hey #LosersClub I thought I would give you a schedule for the rest of 2022, for planning purposes! I‘m so bummed that 11/22/63 didn‘t fall in November!
Going forward, are they are changes you‘d like to see? Should we read along together, or continue at our own pace? Should we read throughout the month or keep it on the 19th? Let me know!

Erinsuereads I definitely prefer read at your own pace, but im not sensitive about spoilers so I'm totally cool if we want to change it to a read along. I'm excited for the lineup! 6mo
BarkingMadRead @ErinSueMreads I‘m definitely in for whatever everyone wants, maybe everyone will want to keep it the way it is. If it ain‘t broke don‘t fix it! 6mo
KathyWheeler I‘m fine reading however everyone else wants to read. 6mo
Bklover Any way is fine with me! 6mo
BarkingMadRead @KathyWheeler and @Bklover thanks for commenting!! 6mo
Sparklemn Any way is fine with me. I've read Under the Dome and 11/22/63 and enjoyed both so I'm excited to see what you all think! 6mo
BarkingMadRead @Sparklemn those are both re-reads for me as well! Under the Dome was the first book I ever read on an e reader 6mo
Sparklemn @BarkingMadRun I love that you remember that! I think Under the Dome was one of the last paper books I read before I switched over to my e reader. :) 6mo

BarkingMadRead The first time I read this, I didn‘t finish, and I don‘t remember why! I loved it this time, I basically devoured it! 6mo
Erinsuereads I liked it better the second time too! I think it was toooooo much for the brain the first time around. I think that one is one of his darkest ones honestly. 6mo
Addison_Reads I liked it the first time and loved it the second. It is different from most other King novels. I feel though for anyone who has gone through childhood trauma, or loved someone who has, there is so much in this book that rings true. Lisey and Scott have a love story that works for them and how deeply they cared for each other can certainly be felt. 6mo
BarkingMadRead @ErinSueMreads definitely very dark! 6mo
Erinsuereads I totally agree @Addison_Reads there is so much more to unpack there for people with these experiences! 6mo
KathyWheeler The first time I read this, I didn‘t care for it that much — especially some of the violence Lisey experiences. The second time I liked it better. I really like the audio. I hate the way he ends the chapters in the book though, with incomplete sentences that force you into the next chapter. You‘re left with no natural stopping point. 6mo
Addison_Reads @BarkingMadRun @ErinSueMreads Lisey's relationship with her sisters was an interesting part for me. Most of the time male authors miss the boat on female relationships. I felt King did a great job explaining their connection and the love/hate dynamic they struggled with while at the same time never giving up on each other. 6mo
Erinsuereads @Addison_Reads that's a really good point! I'm watching my mother in law struggle with her sisters right now and it's so messy. I don't have sisters but it's such a complicated relationship to watch. 6mo
BarkingMadRead @KathyWheeler yes! I was reading 20ish pages a day and stopping at chapter ends, but it always left me hanging! It was frustrating 🤣 6mo
Addison_Reads @KathyWheeler The ending of the chapters puzzled me at first but then I guess I got used to it. It made me constantly question if we were in a dream or if it was really happening. 6mo
BarkingMadRead @Addison_Reads yes! He definitely has the family dynamic down! The sisters were great characters! 6mo
Addison_Reads @ErinSueMreads Messy relationships is the perfect description for most of this book! I have a sister, and she struggles with addiction, so perhaps that's why that part hit home for me. 6mo
Bklover I read that he wrote this after having pneumonia in 2003 and imagining what his wife Tabitha‘s life would be like. @Addison_Reads @ErinSueMreads @BarkingMadRun 6mo
BarkingMadRead @Bklover awwwww that‘s so sad! 6mo

KathyWheeler This is one I have had since it came out, but I‘ve never read it. Yay for new-to-me King! 😊 6mo
BarkingMadRead Woohoo @KathyWheeler gotta love it!! 6mo
NikkiM5 Yay, looking forward to joining for the first time 🥳 6mo
BarkingMadRead @NikkiM5 🎉🎉🎉 6mo

Erinsuereads Oh I haven't read this one! 6mo
Sparklemn I think I'm going to have to skip this one. I'm still finishing Lisey's Story and am getting backed up on my other July reads. I'll rejoin next month!

Have you ever looked under the dust jacket of this one? Crazy! I‘m starting today, reading roughly 20 pages a day, although I always finish out the chapter! I‘ve never seen any other cover, so if you have one that‘s different, be sure and tag me so I can see it! #LosersClub #StephenKing #StephenKingInOrder #KingFromTheBeginning #ConstantReader #ReadAlong #BuddyRead #BookDiscussion #ghosthostpost

Addison_Reads I've always loved the artwork under the dust jacket. 💚 7mo
tpixie Wow this is gorgeous!! That‘s such a nice surprise. That‘s one of the reasons I don‘t like hardbacks as much as paperbacks- because once you take the paper cover off , usually the book itself is boring. 7mo
BarkingMadRead @tpixie yes! Usually some dark color underneath with no personality 7mo
BookwormAHN Wow 🖤 7mo
KathyWheeler That‘s lovely. I don‘t have a hardback copy. Mine was an Advanced Reader‘s Copy that I got at the American Library Association conference before the book was released. 7mo
BarkingMadRead @KathyWheeler that‘s so cool! 7mo
Sparklemn Lovely! 💛 7mo
Erinsuereads It's easily the wildest book on my shelf! 7mo

BookishTrish Finally planning to join you all! Have my copy of Lisey all lined up! 7mo
KathyWheeler It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read this. Looking forward to it. 7mo
BarkingMadRead @KathyWheeler I started it once before and didn‘t finish, and can‘t remember why! I am looking forward to reading again! 7mo
KathyWheeler @BarkingMadRun Sometimes you‘re just not in a mood for a book at the time you first pick it up. That happens to me a lot. 7mo
Karkar Oh I do not like this one. ☹️ this has to be least favorite King. 7mo
Addison_Reads @BarkingMadRun Can I be added to the list? I've been wanting to reread Lisey's Story and this gives me a great reason to now. 7mo
KathyWheeler @Karkar it‘s one of my least favorites as well, but I figured I‘d read it again anyway. At least I‘ve successfully read it, which hasn‘t happened yet with The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon even though it was so short! 7mo
Bklover Yesssssssss!!!!! 7mo
Sparklemn Really looking forward to this one! 7mo
BarkingMadRead @Sparklemn I‘ve never read this all the way through so I‘m looking forward to it as well! 7mo

bthegood @TheNeverendingTBR I'm in on this , it's a reread for me, I think of this book every time I see a lone shoe on the side of the road......some things are always a mystery.😊 9mo
BarkingMadRead @TheNeverendingTBR I‘m starting it today! I‘ve been watching the show based on it, and I want to read it again and see if there are any similarities 9mo
