They always say “never trust a book by its cover” but this is one of the dopest covers I have ever seen. Let‘s see how the read goes. ✌🏼 #scifi #paperback #bookcover #aevanvogt #wizard

I will be honest, this book is taking me longer than it should to read!! #stephenking #darktower #wizardandglass

Mistermandolin I have the same problem. I can‘t read and listen to the Dead at the same time. Jerry hooks me in and takes me someplace else - every time! Then again, I ain‘t complaining.... 2y

Just finished reading the sequel to my favorite book. It started off a little upsetting to me but as the story leveled up, so did my appreciation for the continuation Ernest Cline created. I read poor reviews prior to reading, but don‘t buy into the hype, this is a great read!

So, I hit a wall with #darktower book four and had to take a break. I‘m glad I did! I‘m only about 60 pages into this new story from #ErnestCline and I really dig it so far. I may not like where Wade is at the moment, but I‘m excited to see his journey. #readyplayerone is my favorite book so this was a must read.

I LOVE when a book I‘m reading crosses over with a book I LOVE! It has happened multiple times in this series but this one really got me! I whited out the book name so there wasn‘t any spoilers...but if you know...you know. ✌🏼

The story moves forward and the pain goes on. Blain the pain, but how long will the story go...until the train runs out of tracks and away our ka-tet go? Just finished The Wastelands and I‘ve cracked open Wizard and Glass. #stephenking #darktower #epicnovels #horrorbooks

The last thing I wrote about this book was more of a negative than a positive, however people began to rally around the book saying how great it was so I dig my heels in and read from page 356 to page 700 in under a week, boy am I glad I did! I ended up really enjoying this story and I am starting the next book right now. I will say that the middle of The Wastelands drug on a lot and was rather boring but redemption came in the end.

Just curious, what is everyone‘s favorite #stephenking book? I‘ve read more Stephen king than any other author. He is my moms favorite writer so I remember seeing her curled up on the couch, lost in a king book day after day and it made me want to read. Now I do the same thing with his books. My favorite is The Stand due to its in depth story with twists of emotion sprinkled all through it. #spookystories #horror #horrorbooks #thestand #scarybook

TrishB The Stand is my fave too. Honourable mentions for Needful Things, ‘Salem‘s Lot, Dr Sleep, the Bill Hodges trilogy. I‘m a massive fan 😁 2y
JakeRuble @TrishB Salem‘s Lot may be my runner up! I LOVED that book. I also really enjoyed the Bill Hodges trilogy, much to my surprise as it was different than any other books of his I had read up until that time. I‘ve still not read The Shining or Dr Sleep! 2y
TrishB You do have to read The Shining before Dr Sleep, but I much preferred Dr Sleep. 2y

Hard to put down! I read this book in just over a week and it would have been read faster had not work and family gotten in the way!

It is hard to explain the book without giving away any spoilers so I will just say this, it is one of the leaders in the science fiction genre and for good reason. It captured the struggles and pain of a boy desperately wanting to be a child but with the responsibility of a hero on his shoulders.

catiewithac Love this book! 2y
JakeRuble @catiewithac when I finished reading I went and laid down in my sons bed with him fro a while as he slept. I really think this book made me a better father, because I looked at my kids in a different way. 2y

The Dead Zone | Stephen King

Pickpick

Stephen King is one of my favorite writers as well as the author I have read the most from. I will be the first to say however, it typically takes me a while to get sucked into his stories, all though once I am in, I am in deep. That was not the case with The Dead Zone. This was a fun exciting read from the first letter to the last punctuation. For anyone thinking about reading a Stephen King book for the first time, this is my recommendation.

An inspirational book for anyone with a drifters spirit. A look into the life of a young man who‘s desire to find himself was greater than his need to conform. All though some see this as a tragic story about the end to a young mans life, I see it his as a beautiful story of discovery that ends too soon. (I don‘t think this is a spoiler as the books starts with this information and it‘s literally on the cover, I apologize if I‘m wrong)

Buechersuechtling Oooooooh, I was inclined to read it, after I saw the film. Now that you brought it up again, I feel like I want to read it now‼️ 2y
JakeRuble @Buechersuechtling the film did a great job capturing the spirit of the book, but of course it‘s difficult to get all the emotion into film. It‘s a great and quick read. I highly recommend it. 2y

Ready Player One is my go to book at this point. I make it a point to read this once a year and not one time have I regretted it. If you love the 80s and pulp culture this is will be your new favorite book. It is an easy read with a huge pay off full of Easter eggs.

Buechersuechtling I remember giving this as a birthday present to my significant other who is no big reader. Shortly after we went on vacation – and guess who sat on the sun bed reading. 🙊 I loved it❣️ “Ready Player Two” is not yet published in German, so I gave him 2 vouchers for Christmas, one for “Ready Player One” as audiobook, the other for “Ready Player Two” as audiobook. We will be listening to them while cooking. Already looking forward to this. (edited) 2y
JakeRuble @Buechersuechtling it is a great book to get someone hooked on reading! I‘ve not started the sequel yet, but will soon. 2y

The Gunslinger | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

This book actually got me into the Stephen King universe (and what a universe it is). It started off a bit slow as I have learned many of King‘s books do, but by the end of the book I was ready to continue my path to the Dark Tower. I am on the third book in the series and so far The Gunslinger has been my favorite.

BookwormM Interesting most people I communicate with rate Gunslinger least favourite of the series. I must confess I also fall into this group 2y
JakeRuble @BookwormM I‘ve noticed that, however I am only a little more than halfway through the third book in the series and it‘s just now picking up for me. Perhaps when I finish it and the story is complete, my thoughts will change. 2y

I‘ve been reading The Dark Tower series and I‘m on book 3 so far and halfway through it. I have to say this book is a chore to read at this point. I‘m not sure if I‘m the only one with this issue but as someone who always has a need to finish a book/series...this has been rough. (Also, sorry for the “book abuse” photo. I like these pocket sized books because I literally keep them in my back pocket so they tend to get a bit wore out.)

BillBlume Never apologize for a love-worn book. 👍 2y
