I really enjoyed this book. I especially loved catching up with some old friends from It. Because of course King can't help connecting his books. Jake discovers a way back in time. So he goes back to try to stop the Kennedy assassination.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2w
RebelReader I‘m not a fan of King‘s but I always feel like I should read it. Mostly because I can‘t resist chunksters! 2w

KathyWheeler @RebelReader You might still like this book even if you aren‘t a Stephen King fan. It‘s different from a lot of his books. It‘s truly one of his best books. (edited) 2w
BookwormAHN @RebelReader I agree with @KathyWheeler this isn't one of his typical horror novels. And for a chunkster it moves along nicely. 2w
Cinfhen Great choice for prompt - we read this for bookclub and had a fantastic discussion @RebelReader it was really outside of our normal reading but everyone loved it 😊 2w
Clwojick Great job! 2w

A diner owner with unreasonable low prices keeps his costs down because he buys beef in 1958, gets his best customer involved in a scheme to change the world for the better. At first, he‘s not convinced but a tragedy from a student‘s past inspires him.

Loved it. I honestly don‘t know much about the different conspiracies, but the history is balanced well with the relationships & characters. It never felt like a slog.

5feet.of.fury I saw this shirt on @ fashionbrandcompany‘s instagram - then a bunch of ppl freaked out because apparently QANON thinks that JFK Jr is alive. But they said it was just gibberish, and I thought it was a SK thing.

AmyG No, it‘s a Qanon thing. But I chuckled that you thought it was a SK thing. 3w
5feet.of.fury @AmyG the designer is very much claiming ignorance 😂 but I think they were trying to get people all riled up for interactions, any attention is good attention on the socials 😂 the timing for me seeing it and reading this book ✨ the past harmonizes with itself✨ I really forgot QAnon existed, the perks of always having my nose in a book. 3w

Kimberlone Personally can‘t see the appeal of wearing a velvet crop top with that printed on the boobs, but not surprised it was all for social media clout/attention/controversy! 3w
5feet.of.fury @Kimberlone it‘s been a trip seeing Y2K fashion come back around 😅 3w
TheNeverendingTBR I'm really looking forward to reading this excellent book again. 2w
5feet.of.fury @TheNeverendingTBR I really liked it! I want to watch the Hulu series now too 2w
BarkingMadRead This is one of my faves and the series is really good! 2w

peaknit I have not read much of the Dark Tower series. Is this Feb book stand alone or should i be reading others first in your opinion? Thanks!! 3w
BarkingMadRead @peaknit technically it‘s considered to be 4.5 in the series, if you‘ve read the first few you‘d be fine 3w
Bklover I haven‘t read dark tower series so I will skip this month. But I‘ll be back! 3w
BarkingMadRead @Bklover see you in March for Joyland, it‘s a nice, short one! 3w
Bklover I love Joyland!!! 3w
peaknit I love Joyland also, I listened on audio and the narrator is great! 3w
Reading.w.Dee I have only read the first Dark Tower, so will skip this one also! I am buddy reading Fairy Tale instead for February! 2w
BarkingMadRead @Reading.w.Dee enjoy!!! 2w

Roary47 I really enjoyed this one from King. The book was a chuckster, but it was so fun to read I didn‘t really notice or mind. Normally, I don‘t like time jumping, but King made it manageable so I wasn‘t lost. Yes, he was mostly in the past which helped. I‘m happy with the conclusion as well. I was trying to figure out how the yellow/black card man was connected and that supernatural element made the most sense. 3w
BookwormAHN I also really enjoyed this one. I thought the yellow card men were fascinating. I hope they pop up again in a future book 🤞🏻 Also I loved the scenes with Bev and Ritchie. It was one of my favorites. 3w
BarkingMadRead @BookwormAHN yes! I loved that glimpse of Bev and Richie “mid story” for them! 3w
KathyWheeler @BookwormAHN I hope the yellow card men appear in a future book as well. This is one of my favorite King books. I think he handles the time jumps really well. 3w
bthegood This is one of my favorite King novels - I love that he incorporates characters from other stories (including the town of Derry) but if you didn't read the other stories it didn't take away from this one. I like that he looks deeper than the “butterfly effect“ - he examines the what ifs of falling in love in the past, and wanting to stay with someone (or bring them back with you) - (edited) 3w
5feet.of.fury Loved it! I‘m not the biggest history buff so I am super curious as to how much research was done to the different theories. it‘s such a good story. I loved Sadie and all they went through together. 3w
Erinsuereads This is the first king I ever read! 🙌🙌 And still one of my favorites 😍 I like to recommend this one to people who are king-curious and almost always ita a hit 3w
Reading.w.Dee I second how he creates whole worlds and connects them within each other. I definitely enjoyed that in this one! And I agree, the Yellow Card Man had me extremely curious! There are so many layers to his novels that, even thought it was long, it kept you enthralled the whole time! Thank you for motivating me to read this one! 2w

When we lived in NJ we used to watch this every year during the first snow. Now that we live in SC, we just wait for a cold night! #RIPMartha #borninsincomeonin #losersclub

Liatrek Man I love this one! It‘s so intense I was excited when it showed up on Hulu. 3w
BarkingMadRead @Liatrek it‘s on Hulu?!? That‘s good to know. We have the DVD and I always worry that it will get scratched up! 3w
KathyWheeler I loved this. Good to know it‘s on Hulu. (edited) 3w
Bklover Oh I love this! My kids and used to watch it pretty frequently! “I‘m a little teapot”🎵🎶 3w

#JoyousJanuary @Andrew65 and #LosersClub2023 #losersclub @BarkingMadRead

One of my favorite King books - not just the concept of going back and changing things, but all of the implications of it (like falling in love, if you stay, if you and another person come back) - this was a reread, so I did the audiobook - very good to listen to the second time around, and story just as good as I remembered.
Make a great day everyone - 🙂

Andrew65 I love this book and it is excellent as an audiobook. Well done 👏👏👏 3w
Ruthiella I rarely read King, but I think this or the Bill Hodges trilogy will be next for me. 3w
bthegood @Andrew65 thx and thx for hosting! 3w
bthegood @Ruthiella I liked the trilogy - but this was better IMO - it is a long one though 🙂 - enjoy whichever one/ones you choose! Have a good day. 3w
