Wednesday Book Impression: Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep has been a fun read so far, and I’m only about 110 pages in (of like 450 or something). It’s classic King but with added zest in his continuation of his famous novel The Shining. A number of the old cast make an appearance and it felt like slipping into the second season of a favourite series; regardless of the fact that I read The Shining ages ago, and watched the movie version perhaps just as long ago. We see little Danny Torrance and his visions sweep back in, we watch him grow up and experience them as an adult. We have a whole new cast showing up that bring a chill up my spine and can’t wait to see how they will interact with Dan (he’s Dan now) and a new interesting addition to the spiel. The name of the new addition made me think of a Pokemon of the same name. Very powerful but almost useless in it’s first form and then it evolves and then BOOM! KAPOW! WOW! SPOONS!

Anyway, my reading this month is going to be incredibly slow with Camp NaNo happening. I’m just really proud of my word count. I’ve hit more than 8700 words so far and will probably get to 10 000 by tonight and 15 000 by Saturday. I’ve also received quite a number of Review copies to do. I’m part of a blog tour coming up soon near end of July. It’s getting crazy busy. I’ll probably dedicate August to reading.

Speaking of reading, did you know you can find out about Upcoming Books and New Releases from a book blog we’ve started. And by we I mean myself, Jen and Vicky. It’s called Read Them First because, you know, if you visit and see what’s coming out in the future, you can be one of the few to get to read those books first. It’s brilliant we know.

  1. I must sound like a broken record, but Stephen King is someone I’ve yet to read. I don’t know when or if I ever will, either.
