The Stand | Stephen King
post image

Who‘s in for #pop23 ??? I‘ve been reading over the list and decided to choose some of the prompts in advance that are either harder to fill or that I really want to read. The rest I‘ll just fill in as I go throughout the year. Also, I‘m really looking forward to reading The Stand 😂 Let us know if you‘d like to be tagged in ‘23! Everyone is welcome to play along! https://www.popsugar.com/entertainment/reading-challenge-2023-49013480/amp

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I'm doing it, but it may not be my top priority. Because some of these are a little more generic, I think there's good opportunity for challenge crossover. 2d
Cortg @squirrelbrain I was originally on the fence but decided a lot of the prompts will be things I‘ll pick up anyways. I hope you decide to join in! I still have 4 books to finish for #pop22 2d
Cortg @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Yay! I‘m glad you‘re participating! On the bright side, it‘ll be an easier challenge so reading focuses can be on other reading 🙂 2d
BookBelle84 The Stand is my longest TBR too! For a minute when I was checking I was concerned it would be War and Peace. 2d
Cortg @BookBelle84 I‘m using The Stand for a book published the year I was born! The longest book on my TBR according to Goodreads is 1474 pages 🤣 Maybe I‘ll skip the challenge books again this year 🤣🤣🤣 2d
Cortg @BookBelle84 Maybe I‘ll use my physical TBR bookshelf at home. It might save me 1k pages 😂 2d

Fairy Tale | Stephen King

I loved this rollicking adventure tale (and the chapter lead illustrations are magnificent!) Charlie Reade, rescues and befriends an old man who has a secret and a dog, Radar. Charlie travels to a land shaped by fairy tales and nightmares to save the dog‘s life, and ultimately the land. Characters & world building are great. Only criticism: King dumbs-down references to fairy tales, explaining when he doesn‘t really need too: we read them too sir!

The Dark Half | Stephen King

This was a fun re-read of a King novel with a very weird premise (not that that‘s unusual with King!) satisfying ending, and some gruesome descriptions too 🤢

Plus HOW is it December?!? Here‘s my #bookspinbingo board 🤩

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 5d

The Goodreads Choice Awards inspired me to read new genres and this one was my #bookspin for December. Obviously I ordered it for same day delivery!

I‘m bailing on this about half way through. It‘s too long and I do not like the shallow depiction of characters that basically say pretty = good and ugly = evil. DNF

Cycle of the Werewolf | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

More than a horror, it‘s a character study, where the character is a small town, and the titular werewolf is the background on which it is painted—an interesting reverse of focus, once you notice it. As always, King has an uncanny ability of bringing his characters to life with a few sentences, plus the book has the vibes of those corny horror B-movies I like to watch sometimes instead of comedies. Ultimately, not very scary but still fun.

3.5/5

The Mist | Stephen King
post image

I reread The Mist this evening. It‘s probably my favorite Stephen King novella (although I love A Good Marriage). I hated the movie , but for some reason I revisit the book at least once a year.
Photo was taken by Phil Patterson three days ago showing the fog over St Louis. The photo was actually what made me think of and reread The Mist.

Julsmarshall Wow! That photo 😍 1w
mabell How amazing! We‘ve had some crazy fog! Thanksgiving night (awful driving back), then Saturday morning, which was lovely 1w
slategreyskies Wow, I‘d love to be in one of those tall buildings looking out with a sea of mist beneath me! 1w
Bklover @Julsmarshall @mabell @slategreyskies It‘s an incredible photo, and I‘m glad I didn‘t have to drive in that fog! 1w

An excellent adventure as only King can portray. Charlie, who I adored, befriends a curmudgeon neighbor and his trusty pup Radar. He soon discovers an underground fantasy world with dark fairy tale vibes. Prince Charlie must save the kingdom and find his way home, in a way.
