Has anyone else noticed how much King likes the inexplicable?! One of my favorite King books!

“Perhaps this is what people do with the inexplicable,” he thought. “ this is what they do with the irrational that refuses to be broken down into the normal causes and effects that run in the western world.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A great follow-up to the storyline and an interesting direction the main character is taking.

“...men were generally straightforward. Women were more dangerous—because they were more devious. The aggression was usually quieter. And sometimes darkly passive, hidden like fly hooks in pretty feathers behind smiles and compliments and nice shoes.”

I finished reading this book last week, but couldn‘t write a review. It‘s a heart wrenching Stephen King book centered around The Suicide King, a madman with telekinetic powers who causes others to commit suicide. My neighbor tried to end his life in the garage about the time i finished reading
The book hit too close to my front door.

Shadow Play is book 19! This was a great stand alone for a very long series. And of course I‘m hooked, looking forward to The Face of Deception(#1). I was a tad disappointed the lead characters totally missed the main clue they dug up in the beginning of their research. It finally triggers for them in the last bit of the book!

If you like to jaunt down paranormal lane, this book is right up your alley. #eveduncan #shadowplay

Mehso-so

I‘m behind....i‘ve finished two 📖! This book was a so-so in this series for me. I enjoyed wrapping up the heroine‘s personal life of her past and the little ghost who‘s been following her around. And her fight to not fall into old destructive habits. Seems like it could have done without some of the EXTRA though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Now i‘m wondering where in the 🌍 the author is going in the next 📚!

'Salem's Lot | Stephen King

I read this as a young teenager, back in the 80s when there wasn‘t gore, violence and blood on my TV. I had to read this book in the daylight on the front stoop with our apartment because I was so creeped out by it. “...but there was something about the atmosphere of this place that took the heart out of you and made you no good.”

#salemslot #stephenking #3KingsBuddyRead

Nerdgirl_Ms_Sorrells I‘m still a fan of Stephen King now as I was then, and pretty much 🖤 (most of) his books. This is one of my faves and even though it was written in the 70s- I STILL love it. “Of such inconsequential beginnings dynasties or begun.” Well done, Mr. King! Well done. 1y

I listened to the audio version of this book and it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through! I enjoyed this sequel more than the first book....maybe, because there is so much action and cringeworthy moments where you say out loud,
“Don‘t do it!”
I was surprised at the ending, and left wondering where in the world 🌎 the third book of this series is going to take me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I finished listening to Hard Road a couple of days ago....it‘s been an active week. A 🎂birthday, the 4th🇺🇸 and my youngest daughters Open House! Whew, i‘m beat! So, audiobooks were perfect this week and Hard Road was a nice touch for July. Reminds me of Jack Reacher in a way. I imagine more J.B. Turner books in my future.
