I forgot I was on the waiting list for this and it automatically checked out when my turn came up. I didn't know what it was about when I reserved it, only that it was considered one of Stephen King's best book in years. Well the opening sentences revealed what Doctor Sleep is and I'm so excited! Just finished The Martian and ready for something a bit less methodological. #nowreading #stephenking #doctorsleep

Starting a new book. 👻📚

I was planning to read the Stephen King books I'm interested in reading in the order he wrote them, but since The Shining is fresh in my mind I thought I would skip ahead to this one.

Day 19 #circleofbookishfriends 'Welcome to the Cult' - proud member of the King cult here but the book I choose for this is #doctorsleep as the True Knot members are pretty much a cult of evil child killers!

Just finished - Doctor Sleep by Stephen King ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
.
Synopsis : Returning to the characters first introduced in The Shining, Doctor Sleep follows the story of Dan Torrance, now in his 30s and struggling with alcoholism as his father had before him. In an attempt to get better Dan moves to a small New Hampshire town, joins AA, and works at a local nursing home where he uses what’s left of his shine to give comfort to the homes elderly residents. There Dan meets Abra Stone, an effervescent and brilliant young girl with the strongest shine Dan has ever encountered. However, Dan is not the only one who can feel Abra’s strong shine. A travelling community called The True Knot, ancient beings who live off the shine power of children, have felt Abra’s presence and are determined to find her and steal her shine and her soul.
.
Review : The Shining is phenomenal so it was always going to be a hard act to follow. Masterfully, King has written this in such a way that you don’t have to have read The Shining to follow the events in Doctor Sleep. Although I’m sure all King purists will have anyway! While not as scary as The Shining, The True Knot are one of the scariest King creations of all time and contrastingly Abra is one of the purest. I thought all the characters were fantastically written and the plot is intricately planned and well executed. I particularly enjoyed the story of Dan’s struggles with sobriety as I’m sure King based a lot of that on personal experience and it provides a fascinating insight into his life. I thought the pacing was a bit slow at first but it did pick up eventually and I flew through the second half of the book. Also props to Will Patton who expertly narrated the audiobook version I listened to!

Yesterday’s bookhaul!😍 I can’t complain😌

It happened a few times now that, when I go to the checkout at the thriftshop/bookshop, the person behind the counter says something like: “Oh that looks scary! If you start reading that today you won’t sleep for the rest of the week!”😱 And I have no idea how to respond🙈
Does anyone get that too?

Day 19 #circleofbookishfriends challenge- Welcome to the Cult! A tribe of people called the True Knot travel the highways of America looking for sustenance. It's Stephen King so of course they travel around in innocent looking camper vans, of course the sustenance is the 'steam' of children with the Shining and of course it can only be produced by torturous ritual. I loved this wonderful sequel to the King classic the Shining!! #doctorsleep #stephenking #theshining #cult #steam #ritual #murder #bookstagram #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #noseinabook
