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?
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.ReplyDelete
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!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
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!Delete
