The Monkey - King takes an already terrifying child's toy, and finds a way to make it significantly more terrifying. When this creepy little simian jangs its cymbals together, people have a funny tendency to die. I absolutely loved this story, and have a feeling that it - much like its titular furry music maker - will be making unanticipated returns for a long time to come. 5/5

It is a mixture of fairy tales with lots of dark stuff and a grand quest happening. The story was engaging and expansive, it's a good read but not my favorite... 😌

mamareading Maybe if I accept it doesn‘t have to be my favorite I can finish this one! I like when he‘s at the house and with the dog, in this wandering place, not so much. February, I‘ll push through in February. I do appreciate you saying it was so-so! 17h

The Mist - This is probably one of King's best-known short stories, and for good reason. It distills the essence of our fear of the unknown, and manages to personify that fear without engaging in that classic blunder of the horror genre - showing us its face. Though we see glimpses of the unspeakable terrors that lurk in the titular mist, we're ultimately left to the devices of our own imaginations. Truly terrifying. 5/5

Out of all the books I teach, this one tends to be a favorite of all my students. I'm glad they get as much out of it as I do.

ravenlee I was surprised how good this was. I‘ve only read two of King‘s stories (this and Shawshank), but both were amazing. 2d

The bestselling book in the U.S. in 1984 was this collaboration between Stephen King and Peter Straub, about a boy who crosses America and a parallel world in order to save his mother's life. Like so much of King's stuff, I like the idea better than the execution though there are some great scenes that will stick with me. I hear there's a television series coming, so I guess I'm ready for that.

It's difficult for me to parse my feelings on this one. Thoroughly unpleasant characters abound, coupled with copious amounts of racism and stereotypical depictions of the Romani people. At its core, the story is interesting enough, especially with the debt it owes to 1956's The Incredible Shrinking Man, for which King has expressed his love. Despite that seed of potential interest, I left this read with feelings of lingering distaste. 2/5

1️⃣ The clear skies at night, when there are millions of stars visible.

2️⃣ Definitely has to be The Shining by Stephen King, which I'm due a re-read of.

Family vacation to June Lake, CA. 18 degrees. Snow covering half of the windows. They chose to take my nephew skiing for the first time. I chose to sleep in and enjoy the cozier option. 🥶

1. Christmas 🎄 I love Christmas lights and gift giving. I love making Christmas cookies and spending time with family. Other than that, I hate winter.
2. The Shining. I love Stephen King books and this is one of my all time favorites. I would love to visit the Overlook hotel someday.

It was good I was hoping for it to be great. The ending left me sad and slightly disappointed.
