Evil inhabits a custom-painted red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury named Christine and young Arnold Cunningham, who buys it. This vintage Stephen King came out in 1983 - the ‘80s and ‘90s being 2 decades where I gobbled up King‘s novels. But this one ...... completely #creepedout

Soubhiville This was my first King ever, and it hooked me! I read everything I could by him for several years. 1mo

Curiouser_and_curiouser I remember it (or its presence 😱) being on our bookshelf as kids, my mum's copy is now mine. I used to read excerpts as a child and totally creep myself out! 1mo

Just finished re-reading this and I enjoyed it just as much as I did in highschool when i first read it. #StephenKing is my absolute favorite when it comes to portraying madness and a character slowly losing their mind.

DGRachel I have to admit I'm #ghosthosting again. As a #mopargirl, I fully expected to love this tale of a boy and his Plymouth Fury, but I must have just been in a mood when I tried to read this. I've seen a lot of love here for it, but it's a #bail for me, at least for now. I tried both print and audio and never got far. I was just bored and annoyed. 😩 Sorry #LosersClub! (edited) 7mo
Ashley_Nicoletto I enjoyed this one WAY more than I thought I would! 7mo
BookwormAHN I was quite shocked at how much I enjoyed this one. 7mo
DGRachel @Ashley_Nicoletto @BookwormAHN Sounds like I really need to give it another go when I'm in a different mood. (edited) 7mo
Lizpixie This has always been one of my favourite Kings. I first read it when I was in high school(I know, a very long time ago)and the dynamic between Dennis, Arnie & Leigh was highly relatable to 15yr old me but then you throw in that monstrous car and it‘s #CliquesGoneDemonic I even enjoyed the movie version, it‘s not up there with the original Carrie or Salem‘s Lot, but it‘s still disturbing in all the best ways🚗😈🚶🏻‍♂️👫 7mo
AnansiGirl All the times I‘ve read Christine, I‘ve never caught on until this reading how Arnie‘s personality changed into that LeBay character. (edited) 7mo
Karkar This was my first time reading Christine and I enjoyed it. I was surprised as I did not think I was going to like it! But it was better than I expected. @AnansiGirl it took me more that it should have to catch that part too! 7mo
Karkar @DGRachel what is the next book? 7mo
DGRachel @Karkar I‘m such a terrible hostess. I‘m sorry. Give me about 10 minutes and I‘ll do the reminder posts. I can‘t remember off the top of my head. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 7mo

Finished this one over my morning coffee today.

I‘m at a little bit of a loss over how much I enjoyed this one. I wasn‘t planning on picking it up as I have zero interest in cars and thought killer cars were stupid. 🤷🏻‍♀️

But this was really good. Interesting characters. Classic King writing and a pretty good ending (which we all know he doesn‘t always pull off).

vivastory I'm really surprised by this. I'm planning on eventually reading all of his books, but I figured this one would end up being a dud. Glad to hear differently! 7mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @vivastory Uh same! I only read it because I try to take part in #losersclub her on Litsy. I was prepared to vehemently hate it, but it might be one of my favs of his. 7mo
DGRachel @Ashley_Nicoletto Ooh, now I seriously have to push it up. I started it, felt a little “meh” and picked up other books. Sounds like I need to get back to it! 7mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @DGRachel I felt a little meh through a lot of it, but it ties out nicely and I ended up really enjoying it. 7mo

I thought I'd share a shelfie tonight, pls excuse my bed post & shoe shelf.
2 shelves, top left are hubby's (notice P.K.D titles)
5 of 8 of the shelves are double stacked, so I really need to stop borrowing & bargain hunting for more til I'm done with at least the titles which excite me the most. And these are not our only shelves, 3 more in lounge
What a sweet sight from my bed, to wake up and go to sleep with a view as this...

Norlad I‘d zoom in and snoop, esp. being a PKD fan, but the app doesn‘t seem to allow for it 😕. It is a nice view, though! I‘m in the middle of reorganizing our little library and I‘ll have to post a shelfie when I‘m done. (edited) 8mo
Curiouser_and_curiouser @Norlad yes I was thinking of posting a few zoom in shots. I'll be sure to include my hubby's books in there too. Thanks for your message, I look forward to seeing a shelfie of yours when it's ready :) 8mo

I was shocked by how much I enjoyed Christine. I really thought is sounded rather dumb. But I was presently surprised that a book about a possessed car and the boy who loves her was very entertaining 🚘 #losersclub
Also this is my 10th book for #BFC #bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn

MrsMalaprop So great to unexpectedly enjoy a book 😊. Read & loved this as a teenager 👍. 8mo
KathyWheeler I read this so long ago I barely remember it. It‘s also one of the few King books I‘ve not reread; maybe it‘s time to remedy that. The book of his that I was pleasantly surprised to find I liked was Cell. It was far better than I thought it would be. (edited) 8mo

Anyplace, man. It didn‘t have to be Monte Carlo. Mostly I sat there wishing I was older.”

Another great early King novel. This one was also turned into a movie, but read the book. It, as usual, answers any questions the movie might stir up and goes much more in depth with the character development, including Roland LeBay.

CHRISTINE, I think I would have to rank it in the top 10 of his books definitely; its 700+ pages but races by with no bloat.

It is a perfect horror novel and one of his gorier ones and I can't recommend it enough! 🚘

STEPHEN KING FACT OF DAY:

HE WAS HIT BY A CAR, THEN BOUGHT THE CAR THAT HIT HIM.
King was bit by a vannot far from his summer home in Maine in 1999. The incident left King with a collapsed lung, multiple fractures to his hip and leg, and a gash to the head. King and his lawyer bought the van for $1500 with King announcing that, "Yes, we've got the van, and I'm going to take a sledgehammer and beat it!"?

My first Stephen King novel. I'm day 5 into the book and just at 400 pages out of 721. I am surprised how quick those 400 pages went by despite nothing happening for half the book. Yet, it kept me engaged and I do want to know what happens. Do you guys have any favourite King book?

This has always been one of my favorite Stephen King movies but I had never read the book until now. It would be impossible for an hour and a half movie to fully capture the intensity of this book. And that‘s exactly what this book was - intense!! Still one of my favorite SK movies and now one of my favorite books as well!

Heads up! The audiobook is on sale today for $6.95 and I couldn't resist. They have some other good ones on sale today as well. Debating whether or not to buy Strange Weather by Joe Hill and a book by Ed and Lorraine Warren (demonologists from the Conjuring movies). But $6.95 is a great deal! Decisions decisions. 🤔🤔🤔
