The Green Mile Read Along, AKA #GreenMileAlong

Green Mile Prison

@BKClubCare and @MelissaAvidLife decided it was high time to read King again and better yet, to read him as a group.

#GreenMileAlong

Looks like the conversations will be on Litsy and Twitter. Join us in April! I just got an ebook version that has the entire serialization in one ebook. Mark your calendars! April is looking up.

Review: If It Bleeds

If It Bleeds

If It Bleeds
By Stephen King
Scribner, 9781982137977, April 2020, 448pp.

The Short of It:

Once again, I was thoroughly swept up with King’s writing. I don’t know what I will do when his books stop coming.

The Rest of It:

If It Bleeds is a collection of novellas. It contains four stories. Four really good stories and one is a little tidbit of goodness that you will enjoy reliving. Think, familiar character.

I won’t tell you what each story is about because it’s more fun to go into them totally blind, like I did. I was happily surprised that many of the themes explored are timely for our “safe at home” / quarantine pandemic days. Views on technology, mortality, desperation, all have their time in the spotlight.

King is an excellent storyteller. His set-ups are so good. Just a few lines in and I’m hooked. I really enjoyed this collection. It made me wonder what I am going to do when he isn’t around anymore and I don’t even want to think about that.
