Time for another WWW Wednesdays, which is brought to you by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. If you too want to participate, answer the above questions and post that link on Sam’s page.

I completed a full month of reading Stephen King (see full review here). Having only read one short story by Stephen King (just last year), I didn’t know what to expect and am shocked at how much I ended up enjoying his work – though not without some nightmares. I will be moving on to reading Shirley Jackson next as part of my Focus on Authors Challenge.

    • I feel that “taken a shine to Stephen King” was a bit of a book pun that I thoroughly enjoyed (since The Shining was my favorite). On my lunch break I got to the part of HOL where the footnotes really go crazy. It is definitely the most interesting reading experience I have ever had. I’m also finding darkness and space a bit more creepy now.

      • I believe you’re referring to the chapter “Labyrinth”? It was quite something. If at any point you feel the strain as I did, know that after coming out the other side of it the footnotes become less labyrinthine.

        Also that pun was 100% intended 🙂

  1. Oh I wish I knew about Focus on Author challenge earlier, I would’ve joined. Is it a yearly reading challenge? I’m a new fan of Stephen King, by the way, and it’s in my plan to read all his books if I can, next year. I just can’t do it this year because I don’t have a lot of his books. I want to read physical copies but can’t buy them all in one go, they’re too expensive. Maybe because they’re huge and Stephen King is very well-known.

    • I heard about a fellow reader focusing on authors that they wanted to read more of and just decided to give that a try and make that a personal challenge for my 2019 reading life. If you have a list of authors you want to read more of, I definitely recommend this challenge. However, it has limited my ability to read other books that I would have liked to read, so I will not be doing the challenge again next year but might pick it up again 2021. I too would love to read more Stephen King. I have a lot of his work on ebook not physical copies. I think it would take me a long time to read his entire collection of work. He is so prolific!

  2. George Elliot used to be one of my favorite authors, though I only read one of her books! I really need to go back and reread her work and see if she’s still a favorite.
