It’s a new year and time for goals!! Though I generally do read a lot of Stephen King, I am going to take this challenge offered by Book Chick City. You can see more information here: http://www.bookchickcity.com/2010/12/sign-up-2011-stephen-king-challenge.html. You have to read 6 to 12 books by him in 2011 and I’m sure 6 is what I’ll do just for the mere fact that many of his books are sooo long. I read Under the Dome last year and that was a huge book with over 1,000 pages! I have a few new ones to read, like his newly published short story compilation called Full Dark, No Stars, but I have some I may re-read that I read in my early years also such as Dead Zone.
I’m supposed to put the button and link to the Stephen King Challenge (scary little IT clown picture…yikes!) on my sidebar, you can either go above to the link I provided to learn how to sign-up or click on the sidebar button. You can look for my reviews here on my new book blog!
My favorite Stephen King book is one from more recent years, Duma Key, that I read last year. I LOVE how he made the art really come to life in such a gripping way. I also really like Rose Madder, which hit home with me when a woman runs away from her abusive cop husband and starts a new life. However, a painting she buys lures her in to another world. Again, art taking life. What is your favorite Stephen King book?
In the meantime, while I am reading, be sure to also check out my other blog at www.breathebeautyartandphotography.wordpress.com, if you like photography, art, doing things with your kids, baking, and musing on life.
