It took me a while... I had been quite busy in the last couple of weeks but I finally finish. And the book is totally worth it. As usual Mr King does terrible endings but the story is great
For some reason a part of me thought I would be able to get through this book all in October... Outside of that this is my #1stpost and I have no ideal how to use this app. A little push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. #It #StephenKing #Pennywise #Kindle #Audible #Book #KillerTofu #KnockKnockWhosThereTheDoctorDoctorWhoExactly
Let me just say, I haven't been this excited while reading a book this whole year. I'm just devoting It.
All right, guys. We had a door decorating contest this week for Red Ribbon Week. My door is so cute - we made Frankenstein‘s monster and wrote “Don‘t experiment with drugs!”
But, this. This is the door nextdoor to me and my goodness there is one talented artist in that class. It scared the s*** out of me when I walked down the hall this morning!
I knew I had to post it here, to be appreciated by all of you ♥️ #losersclub #stephenking @DGRachel
Thank you @mngraham I received your #NightmareSwap box! I‘m so excited! I love the IT book!! I love Stephen King and I‘ve had my eye on the Wounds book for awhile! I can‘t wait to add these two books to my library!! The blanket will be perfect for work (it‘s been cold lately) & I set up the decoration on my desk before I left. 🤗🥰 Love it all!
Thank you @LibrarianRyan for organizing such an awesome swap!
#ScaryScavengerHunt #scarathlon #TeamStoker. #11. Read a book that scares you. Clowns are evil. Every little noise was making me look over my shoulder. I didn‘t have to put in the freezer though. 🤣 Scavenger hunt is now complete.
Sorry the picture is blurry. I was on my way to take out the trash and I caught a neighbor kid put a Georgie sailboat he made in our flooded parking lot next to the grate and snatched a photo on my way back 😅 if I can get a better pic later I may change it. Also it's been nice knowing you all lol🎈
I recently started an online book club on Facebook if anybody is interested in joining. It's brand new and we are just testing the waters and have not chosen a book to read yet. But with the feedback I've been getting from people, I imagine most of the books that we will be reading or going to be dystopian, Adventure, sci-fi/fantasy, horror, Thrillers, and some contemporaries. Search the group name on Facebook if you're interested.
Finished my sixth re-read of this novel. It's a book that looks at so many ideas within it, it is probably impossible to sum it up with a short character count, but I'll try. It shows the issues of childhood really are the same as in adulthood. Though our fears may change, the fact that they all stem from our childhood shows the influence and importance of the people we know, whether we like them or not. It is twisted in places but it has heart.
Just a reminder that November‘s #losersclub read is #IT! Buy, borrow, or beg for your copy and check back on or about November 18th when we begin reading this one. Discussion will be in December. I‘ll be #ghosthosting this one (#IHateClowns), but everyone is welcome to join in!
Note that you don't have to read the book in November to join in discussion. Join us with any comments you have from previous reading experiences!
How can a book be both SO horrifying as well as wholesome? Leave it to Stephen King I guess! This story had me jumping at any and every sound in the night. I even got spooked out while I was cleaning the dishes one evening. Nightmares nearly every night that I had read it before bed.. If that‘s not talent, I don‘t know what is. ⚠️Review continues in the comments
When I told Katie that she could pick out a book from the Strand (in addition to the aforementioned script of Betrayal), she chose this doorstop. ☺ She recently watched & loved the newer movies (she's a huge Bill Hader fan), and is now making her way through the book. I love this shot from our hotel, The Mansfield, in NYC. #raisingreaders
So far in the book we‘ve met two characters at a fair together and a group of other people don‘t like these two so they decide to beat them up but end up killing one of them. After we‘ve finished reading this part we start to get to know the main characters in the future. We learn about the people they have become and the phone calls they receive. I enjoy this book because it‘s realistic but not at the same time. The tome is confident but serious.
Went out of town this weekend with friends. Stopped by an independent book store. Bought 3 used audiobooks & 1 used paperback for $4 at their outdoor tent sale, then bought 3 new novels in the store. This was one of my new purchases. Last time I read it, I was 12 or 13. Looking forward to seeing if it holds up to my memory and how reading it as an adult might change my perspective.
