It | Stephen King

It's slow moving and I'm reading it slowly too. But I'm enjoying this so far. Theres a lot of details that aren't needed but I've always enjoyed the idea of this story so it's a good experience and I love the summer atmosphere in it.

I've always loved this book. Its so simple but full of fun and enriched characters. Probably the reason I love character driven novels.

I cant give this anything below 5 stars because what kind of book fanatic wouldn't love this gem. It's fun and I love the artwork. Just little comics of how the life of a bookworm is.

This was a cute read but I probably prefer it if I were going through the books for the first time and not years after the fact. I listened to it on audiobook which was great but I think it's better read in a physical format.

I loved this series. It's so uplifting and heavy on friendship but not too heavy on romance. I wish we could have seen more in the future and how the past events changed it but I am happy with the ending.

I've had this in my tbr since it was announced like 4 years ago and I'm so happy I got to read it sooner rather than later because the holds list at the library is long! I think I like it more than THUG it's in a way more relatable than the story in THUG but honestly I love both!

1. Tagged my current audiobook!
2. Finally a weekend where I have no work and no obligations beyond some family stuff so reading and light homework.
3. I do like hard boiled eggs but mostly in salads I'm not a huge fan of them on they're own anymore.
4. I'm not sure there's so many names I like. But it would be more unique.
5. I always do!!

This was interesting. It felt like there was a lot of detail in such a short story. It's not a favorite but I did like the writing and how close I was able to get to the character to feel her emotions with her.

Not for me. Its way too gritty and vulgar. These are vignettes all related to complete a story. I liked the idea of it all but not something I can enjoy because I'm cringing most of the time.

This was a cute fun read. I loved Sprout and her undying love for Greentop. I think it makes a powerful statement, as well, that blood doesn't make family which is something I connect to deeply.

Naj This is such a sweet book. I loved Sprout and even Straggler. 3mo

Honestly, I think I found my new favorite book. It's a bit slow moving and completely character driven. But I'm into that. I've never identified with a character more than with Francie. I'm completely in love and I'm so happy I picked up this book and that I own a copy.

I can't believe I haven't picked this up before now. I'm on chapter 8 and just really enjoying this. Actually, I'm kind of glad I waited to read this as an adult rather than teen or in my early 20s. I wouldn't have appreciated it at much.

I hadn't read the book prior to now and I feel like I like it more than the movie which I'm surprised at because I love the movie. It feels more child appealing because dorothy is a child and while there are some graphic deaths it feels more for a kid than the movie did.
