Oh, no, once again I’ve fallen out of the habit I love the most. I have to admit that I am really bad at keeping up with my reading whenever I go back to school, I just seem to be tired and running late most of the time so sitting down to read something becomes more difficult (my fault, I know). These last two months I only read three (and a half) books, but I have to say I am really happy about them, all by my favorite favorite author, Stephen King, so here we go.
The Eyes of the Dragon (1984) - This book is completely different from everything I’ve read from SK, it isn’t horror or a thriller, it is about fantasy, kings, kingdoms and magicians. The king died mysteriously and his oldest son was accused of murder, so the little one took the crown. I did struggle a little to get this read, because it is so different from what I usually go for, but I enjoyed it, not as much as I was expecting, but I did, it was just a little bit slow. At the end you can feel how this is kind of a satire about modern politics, at least that’s how I felt it.
Carrie (1974) – She was a teenager that didn’t fit with everyone else at school. She had a fanatic mother that hit her everytime she could and she was bullied at school, the most important things is just that she was different. She had telekinetic powers and it all became a huge chaos when someone thought it was a good idea to pour pig blood on her during the prom dance. Well, this book on the other side I enjoyed as I have done only a few times, I read it in one night, I really recommend it to anyone, especially if you want to read something from King for the first time.
Pet Sematary (1983) – This is about Louis Creed, who just bought a new house and didn’t knew he had a micmac cementery deep in his backyard, where everything that is buried, comes back to life, something that came handy when Church, his daughter’s cat was hit by a truck while on his care. The cementery starts having a growing power that takes over him, more and more everyday. This became one of my favorite books as soon as I started it, it is the kind of story that gives you goosebumps and I have to say the ending is one of the best ones I’ve read.
I read almost nothing compared with what I wanted to, but at least I did read something (insert mediocre emoji here), and I have to admit this posts really inspire me to keep reading and sharing with you some of the books I like the most! I would love to know what have you been reading lately!
