THE Book is Out!

Good storytelling is why I keep coming back, but big releases like this give me the shivers and they have nothing to do with the genre he writes for! Yes! King’s new book, Doctor Sleep was released today and everyone I know seems to be reading it right now and here I am at work!

I had grand plans to take the day off but they just didn’t pan out so I fired up my Kindle and loaded it up. I’ve been glancing at it off and on all morning but I am looking forward to lunch so I can really dig in.

Doctor Sleep

There are still readers out there that do not know that this is the sequel to The Shining. His first sequel!! This is a huge deal. Oh, and to make it even more fun, I am reading it with others for a read along (#sleepalong). Details can be found here.

Doctor Sleep Read Along

Tonight, The Girl will be singing and dancing her heart out for Oliver auditions and I will be going nuts in the car waiting for her, but at least I’ll have this to read! Break a leg, sweetie! Oh, and good luck to The Teen who auditions tomorrow.

  1. You can always take tomorrow off, because you DO have a hurt back. It is a long book. Like I turn a million pages just to go up one percent. I think I’m at 15-ish%. I shall read more tonight!

    1. Did you read The Shining? The book is different than the movie. You may need to read The Shining first before reading this one.


  2. I don’t know why this one hasn’t screamed at me to read it yet, especially since I just renewed my friendship with King and like The Shining when I read it. Soon you’ll all be raving about it and THEN I’ll be all over it, I suppose!

  3. I just got back from my first run in years this morning. I hurt and Doctor Sleep is staring at me. I can feel it. And, sometimes I swear I hear voices coming from within the pages. How am I ever going to last until Monday to start reading this for the #sleepalong?!? I just don’t think I can!!

    1. Stay strong because once you start reading, you won’t want to stop. Some books you can read a page or two and end it but not with this one.


    1. Well, Doctor Sleep should not be your first since it’s a sequel to The Shining. But you should read one of his books soon. He is a great storyteller. For a first book, I recommend one of his earlier books… Carrie or The Stand.


  4. I received my copy this morning and cannot wait to sit down with Doctor Sleep and read! I hope the auditions are going well…good luck to your son and daughter! I just love the image I get of you hunkered down in the front seat of your car reading Dr. Sleep while your daughter is inside trying out for Oliver. Thank goodness you have something to distract you while you wait!

    1. I do a lot of reading in the car. I need to get a new book light or the Kindle Paper White though as it gets dark so early now. You will enjoy Doctor Sleep. It am about 35% in and it’s quite good.


    1. Did you get your copy over the weekend? It’s a pretty quick read. Easy to fall into so if you don’t get it until today you should still be okay.
