It turned into what you see above—a chunkster and a half.
The other day, I shared this article on Facebook about all of the TV/Movie projects that Stephen King has in the works and then a group of us started talking about how there are so many books that we haven’t read, or have read and forgotten, that we almost need to read them again before all this stuff hits the big screen.
I cannot think of a better way to spend the summer. I wanted to read something deep and meaningful but I took a look in the mirror and I look and feel like hell. Chalk it up to a very stressful year but I am going to cut myself some slack and just read for fun. I recently finished Mr. Mercedes so why not just keep going?
Funny, because the two I chose to read are not any of the movie/TV projects he is working on! Oh well. Desperation weighs in at over 700 pages and I’ve read it before, but can’t remember a thing about it. Now I am wondering if I read it at all. The Regulators was written under Richard Bachman (his pen name) but I had not heard of it before. It’s about a suburban neighborhood in the summer that goes completely crazy in a classic King way. Doesn’t it sound good?
I downloaded both from the library and plan to dive into one of them tomorrow. I know I am supposed to be reading my book club book (The Goldfinch) and I will at some point, but for now, I need a break.
If anyone wants to read with me just let me know.
