Welp, I guess I‘m ready for he movie 😝 (though now I‘ll be disappointed when the plot massively derails from the book. Oh well)

What better way to spend a day off from working at a book store than reading a book! 📚

Some light reading for the week. 😎 The end was a bit anticlimactic in my opinion, but quite a wild ride to get there.

Overall, this was a very heartwarming story that deserves more attention. While the prose itself isn‘t too difficult, the character and story were more than enough to keep me turning those pages! ❤️❤️

My plan initially wasn‘t to finish the entire thing in one sitting (especially with homework that needs finished) but look what happened. 😬 Worth the read, though. ❤️❤️❤️ #stephenking

Honestly, I wasn‘t impressed with the movie. It wasn‘t the scariest horror film I‘ve ever seen, and they completely ruined the original story. Still, it was a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Flight Behavior | Barbara Kingsolver

While I couldn‘t put the time into that I wanted (since it was for a class), this was an amazing read! Though it‘s not something I‘d usually read, I really enjoyed it. Kingsolver has such a way with words and images I was encaptued from page one. Would recommend! 💖

“Unearthly beauty had appeared to her, a vision of glory to stop her in the road. For her alone these orange boughs lifted, these long shadows became a brightness rising. It looked like the inside of joy, if a person could see that. A valley of lights, an ethereal wind. It had to mean something.”

“He is my grandfather,” has become the dead man who was my grandfather. He was, and is no more. And this is a part of the great mystery we call time. But the past is the present also. And this, I think, is part of the greater mystery we call eternity.”

Sun Dog | Stephen King

“He lay awake in his bedroom, listening to a strong late-summer wind rustle the leaves outside into whispery conversation, thinking about what might make a camera take the same picture over and over and over again, and what such a thing might mean.”

So the official trailer for Pet Sematary just dropped and I can‘t handle my feelings right now. #stephenking

KatieanneF I‘m confused about what seems to be a major change in the plot. One of the most intriguing things about the book for me was Ellie‘s dealing with Gage‘s death. We‘ll see! I‘m still so excited! 9mo
Madds @KatieanneF It almost feels like a requirement for movie adaptations to make major plot changes! I‘m still expecting it to be a great film! 9mo
KatieanneF @Madds agreed! Excited! 9mo

I‘m shooketh. One of the most frustrating cliff hangers I‘ve ever experienced. I‘m so mad (but in a good way). I definitely foresee myself reading the next two books in this series, and would definitely recommend. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finally done with this emotional journey. While it wasn‘t a difficult read (in terms of writing style) I ended up blowing though half the book in one sitting! I found myself struggling a lot with these types of issues in 2018, so it almost seems fitting for “Dear Evan Hansen” to be my first book of 2019. (Here‘s to a better year!)

Do I know the entire musical by heart? Of course. Am I still going to read the entire book? Definitely. Am I fully emotionally/mentally prepared? No. Absolutely not.

It was long (so very very long). I wasn‘t quite expecting such a heavy religious theme, nor concept of dark entities and good vs evil. But it was beautifully written and completely enrapturing. Good work Stephen. 👍🏻 📖
