Father & Son Month of Frights: Wrap-Up

It's time to wrap-up the Father & Son Month of Frights!  I don't really want to, but the last day has come and gone and it is time to chat about what we read and what we thought.

For those that are not sure what the event was, let's do a quick recap:

What: Father & Son Month of Frights -- A focus on reading anything and everything by a father (Stephen King) and his son (Joe Hill).

When: October 15 - November 15, 2015

So, let's talk about what we read!

I listened to two different audiobooks by Stephen King -- Misery and Christine.  I really enjoyed Misery (a full review to come soon with lots more details).  Christine was also good, but I did not appreciate it on the same level as Misery.  I have really enjoyed reading some of King's backlist titles.  I think I may be almost caught up on his old work.  I think I actually have a post somewhere with a list of all his work and all that I have read.  I'm thinking it might be time to find it and update it with all the latest books I have read.

I also was able to start Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill.  I have not yet finished it, but I can already tell that I like his writing style!

What were you able to read during the Father & Son Month of Frights?  What did you think about the books you did get read?


  1. I was not aware of this event but yay on King! His older stuff is quite good. I love his new stuff too but there was a time after his accident where I felt his books were too raw and just plain angry.

    1. Ti ... Bummer that you weren't aware of it! I didn't do a great job advertising it this time around with all that I had going on. Though I am considering making it an annual event! I am curious which books you are thinking are raw and angry. Let's chat about that!

  2. I haven't had a chance to write about it yet but I read HORNS! Even though it wasn't my type of story entirely (a bit too dark), the writing was so good that I didn't mind. And I'm actually glad I read the book after the movie because the other way around would have made me angry that a certain character was treated badly.

    1. Kristen M. ... Well, that's interesting. I haven't read that one yet, but I have it. Now, I'm wondering if I should go out and watch the movie first!
