I read this as part of #lmpbc and really liked it. It‘s a great short story. I‘m also really excited to see that there‘s a part 2 coming out on Monday! Great timing!

JenlovesJT47 I freaking love this book! I read the sequel a couple of months ago and it‘s very good! ❤️ 1w
Bookwormjillk @JenlovesJT47 it‘s out already? Cool! Maybe it‘s just the kindle edition coming out Monday 1w
JenlovesJT47 Yeah, I had seen it was coming out this year but then I saw it at the library in the new releases as I was passing by, made my day! 1w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I‘ve been meaning to give Stephen King a try for ages, but I never got around to it before, so I‘m really glad I got to read this for #lmpbc #groupq . This was a quick, enjoyable read that‘s left me wanting to finally get to the Stephen King short story collection that‘s been sitting on my shelf for a decade. 😅

@bookwormjillk I‘m planning to mail this to you sometime this week. I‘ll let you know when I do.

Oh, Stephen King, thank you!! A button box with the potential to make bad things happen. A button for each country. Buttons to destroy people, provide diet chocolate, dispense silver dollars - such intoxicating choices! This reading makes one consider our own powerful weapons. How should we, or should we, use them.

#TheReadingRush : Read a book you meant to read last year
I've been meaning to read this book since it was published, but for some reason never got around to it.
It was a quick fun read with just the right amount of mystery, suspense, and magic to keep you engaged.
I've also combined the #24B4Monday Readathon to my #TheReadingRush; because I was falling behind. Gaining 02:30:37

This was a quick little read, but not bad, to say the least. Ah, this tapped into some of my greatest worries/fears (of which there are many), but it still was intriguing regardless of how short it was. So much responsibility put on a twelve year old girl; I couldn‘t do it. 😳

I really enjoyed this quick novella from Stephen King and Richard Chizmar. The story was very intriguing. It was easy to put myself in the story and try to imagine how I would have responded to the choices Gwendolyn faced. Very interesting, and a perfect way to begin my summer of reading.

#MayMovieMagic Day 27: Gwendy was given a button box by a mysterious stranger. #YouGiveMeSomething. This box dispenses vintage coins that are worth more than enough to send you through college, and several more buttons that has the power to destroy each of the continent it represents, another button that provides you with anything you want, and a black button to destroy the world. What would you do with it? My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-hSf

Cinfhen King is generally good at moral dilemmas. 8mo
TrishB A great read - just not long enough! 8mo
rohit-sawant @TrishB Still haven't read this one yet 🙈 Did you hear about the upcoming sequel by Richard Chizmar? Just read about it recently. 8mo
TrishB @rohit-sawant just Chizmar? Not sure it‘s the same without the King input 🤷‍♀️ but we‘ll see! 8mo

Imagine getting a free chocolate anytime you wanted one! That would be great, right? Now imagine that this chocolate actually stopped your cravings and helped you lose weight - oh, and it makes you better at everything you do! That is just one of the many magical elements of this quick read by King....👇

LiterRohde But if you dig deeper, you will find so much more. It‘s about creativity, construction vs. destruction, secrets, fate vs. free will, and man‘s efficacy in his own life and the world. Some would say I‘m overthinking it, but that‘s what I just realized I love about these shorter stories....👇 (edited) 12mo
LiterRohde As many have reviewed, with these shorter works, you don‘t get everything wrapped up nicely. This is to me, however, a positive. There are so many places for the mind to go; so many questions to ask. Not that longer works don‘t make you question, but it is more directed. I love the ambiguity in these small tales. I think my next King will be a short story collection. 12mo

Interesting and brief (!) Stephen King novella about a young girl who is given a box by a stranger that has powerful capabilities if she chooses to use them. As with all King, the writing is very well done, the premise is interesting and carried out cleverly. Unlike other King work it‘s very brief but not to the detriment of the story.

I actually think this was an idea that Uncle Stevie could have explored in more depth and turned into one of his signature doorstoppers. In this tiny book, it seemed rushed and the whole concept only examined at surface level. Still an interesting read, but lacks depth.

Fast paced, written in chapters that are only a page or so long, short story depth masquerading as a novella. It‘s an easy read and has some interesting ideas but overall this fell short for me. I just am not sure I see the point of the story. It‘s a Castle Rock setting so perhaps it‘s best read with some of his other books. I didn‘t dislike it, but it‘s not one I‘ll remember either. 🤷🏼‍♀️

My hubby is not a reader and I really want to rectify that situation. I decided to start out slowly, and we have been listening to the audiobook of one of my favorite books this past week before we go to bed. This is my 3rd time reading this but it was just as compelling as always, and Maggie Siff‘s narration is excellent. My hubby really liked it and I have finally talked him into starting Harry Potter with me tonight. Progress!! 5⭐️

I listened to this entire audiobook during one painting session! Granted it‘s a short book, but I really could not put it down. Super compelling. Of course, it did give me nightmares, lol. I highly recommend this audiobook read by Maggie Siff from Sons of Anarchy— she nails it!

Five stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Avanders @Bookishgal71 okay ... I'm thinking that a lack of response from Mandy means she's going through a tough life spot.. no need to pile on w more book obligations. ☺️ So I'll send Gwendy back to Amy.... Amy I'm guessing you're waiting on Mandy's book, Salem's Lot? And ... I'm not sure what I haven't read. I assume Mandy's book, Which... Amy maybe has? I think the next round is our last round (before we get our own books back), so ... Amy, I can send 14mo
Avanders You Salem's lot in either kindle or paperback direct from Amazon? Do I have the right order and everything? And then, Mindi, you normally receive from ... Amy, right? So what haven't you read yet? I think Amy received from Mandy and hasn't received The Atrocities or Salem's Lot, right? If we want to revert to email to figure this out, that's fine w me too ☺️ @bookish_wookish @Bookishgal71 @Whodunit85 (see post above too) 14mo

Bookishgal71 I have read only Gwendy‘s Button Box and Salem‘s Lot (which is mine). I guess that means I am waiting for Atrocities? Not sure which other book is out there... 14mo
Bookishgal71 Oh! I have not read A Head Full of Ghosts yet. No rush to get nothing to me. I will read them as I get them and try to turn them around quickly. Only issue is that I am gone from 12/22 - 1/6, so there will. Be a lull on my end during that time. Just an FYI. 14mo

The first Stephen King book that was not considered horror for me. There were glimpses of King‘s normal style, but a departure from his darkness and gore. Maine, of course. Oddities, of course. A short, engaging, easy read. In the mail to you by Monday @Avanders #hgpbc #teamjaws

This short story or novella reminded me of Mr. King's The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon. Its about a girl who is given a button box that can do many things. Not scary but a little graphic towards the end. Still written like a YA book. I enjoyed it. Fast story and to the point. Great ending!

What was supposed to be a relaxing holiday weekend turned into two 10-hour days of sweaty work, installing ceiling tiles and getting covered in dust and insulation

I was able to stop by Barnes and Noble yesterday, though. I LOVE the Fauno pop from one of my all time favorite movies! Excited for Barracoon. Listened to Gwendy's on audio, but of course I'm going to buy the book when it's on sale

Tomorrow I am not leaving the couch...

Devoured in a day! I picked this up on a whim and I was not disappointed. I have to be honest that having it based in Castle Rock made it more interesting to me. I am enjoying the Hulu series. So silly me I was think a box with buttons for your clothes. Gwendy meets a mysterious man that gives her responsibility for a box with buttons to press 😈 (or not press). It affects her life in ways she could never imagine.
