Weekly Meme: Book Blogger Hop: 2/4-2/7

February 4, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Book Blogger Hop

Thought I’d try something new today and join the Book Blogger Hop (via Crazy For Books blog) Thought this would be a good opportunity for me to connect with other book lovers out there in cyberspace 🙂 The Hop lasts Friday-Monday so there’ll be plenty of time to check the other participating blogs out!

So here’s the question of the week:

“What are you reading now and why are you reading it?”

My answer:

I am currently reading Stephen King’s latest Full Dark, No Stars on my Kindle. My dad (a die-hard King fan) bought it, and since I’m sharing his Kindle account, I get to read it for free (and without waiting for him to finish reading – a benefit of the Kindle)!

Full Dark, No Stars is a collection of four novellas, and I’ve already finished with the first one “1922” which is about the unravelling of a man’s life after he commits a murder – very creepy and yet also heartbreaking story. I was disappointed with King’s previous book Under the Dome, but with this 4-novella collection, looks like he’s got his mojo back! Already looking forward to reading the other stories: “Big Driver,” “A Good Marriage,” and “Fair Extension.”

And of course, I’m also looking forward to blog-hopping this weekend! 🙂

    I keep seeing this book pop up. I love the title – even though I’ve never read much Stephen King, I may have to check it out!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Hope you have a good weekend 🙂

    Hopping through. I’ve never read Stephen King. I’m not a horror fan, but he is a pretty classic author so I should try him.

    Thanks for coming by.
    This looks like a corporate site or maybe sponsored.
    Or, is there a real person with mad HTML skills there? Looks interesting.

      Whoa – you do know that wordpress.com is a free blog service, right? (Like blogspot) so, definitely no corporate sponsorship here. Just me by my lonesome.

      I guess thanks – for thinking my blog looks professional? 😉

    Thanks for stopping by! I’ve seen this one around, but I didn’t know what it was about. I confess, I haven’t read much of King’s work aside from a few short stories of his. My favorite is “One for the Road” which ended up being the basis for Salem’s Lot. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Happy Hop!

    I tried King once and couldn’t get into him. I should probably give him another chance! Thanks for stopping by The Prairie Library!

    The only Stephen King book I’ve ever read was “On Writing.” I’d planned to read a King novel just to get an idea of the writing style but fell in love with YA first and well, King just isn’t YA.

    I haven’t read Stephen King in many years, and I keep thinking I should pick something up again. So many books… I ‘m glad you are enjoying this one.

    Thanks for hopping by my blog.
