It's just so daunting, especially when there's so many other books I haven't read yet--both King and non-King. The Wastelands is one of my favorites, though, so I'm glad you're enjoying it.
    It IS a massive undertaking.

    I don't know, for some reason I just felt it calling my name. I was in the mood to read King, but not necessarily "feeling" the other unread King books on my shelf.

    The truth is, while I'm enjoying it immensely right now, the pessimistic part of my brain is afraid I'm gonna get to Song of Susannah and regret my choice to reread.

    I've done it on audio, and it was quite enjoyable.

    I really wish I could enjoy audio books. I thought it could be better to enjoy my "reread" on audio, but I've found that I don't pay attention to the story if someone is reading it to me.

    Song of Susannah is one of my favorite in the series!

    And I feel exactly the same about audio books.

    It's not that I have anything against Song of Susannah. I'm just worried I'll lose my reading momentum by that time. haha

    Ricky, I'm jealous of people who can enjoy audio books. I just find that my mind wanders if I'm not reading the story myself.

    Currently rereading the DT series, too. Currently at "The Song of Susannah" - 7th Stanza.

    Having just finished "Wolves of the Calla"and knowing what King has written since then brought back the momentum to me. Seeds of ideas planted waiting to germinate.

    Yeah, I gotcha. 6 books in and you think, "Nah, I think I'm gonna stop here."

    And my mind wanders, too. Just like church when the priest is talking and my mind wanders to what I'm having for dinner.

    Audio books definitely take time to get used to but I wonder how I ever lived without them now. I always have one playing in my truck. I've always enjoyed being read to so maybe that's the difference for me. On the other hand, there is not other experience like reading a book yourself. I just don't take the time anymore to do so.

    I love audiobooks. I find the best time to listen to them is while I'm driving. I'll sometimes listen at work, so long as I'm doing something mindless. However I can not listen to them while I'm at home. I get way too distracted then. I'll save home time for physically reading, and audiobooks for driving

    I just started Outlander on audio. I have yet to see the show, although I know many are obsessed with it. I'll probably start it after I finish the book. I'm also making my way through If It Bleeds. So far I've read Mr. Harrigan's Phone, and Life of Chuck. Really enjoyed both so far, especially Life of Chuck, what a great story. I think the Holly story might be next? Not positive but if so I'm going to skip ahead and read the other one next and save Holly for the end since I'm not a fan of hers.

    The Holly story was my favorite! I loved it so much. After that, Life of Chuck, which I really loved as well. Mr. Harrigan's Phone was one I enjoyed, but it was a little slow and could've been shorter. I kept thinking something was going to happen and it really didn't. Rat was probably my least favorite.

    I forget, are you a fan of Holly? I can't stand her, and I hated all of the Mr. Mercedes books. I enjoyed The Outsider in the beginning but then the rest of the story went drastically downhill. I imagine it'll be like those, but hopefully I'm wrong.

    Yeah, I am. I love her but I can understand why other readers wouldn't. I think I remember you saying you enjoyed parts of The Outsider, but I don't recall you saying you hated all the Mr. Mercedes books!

    Well in fairness I haven't read the third book. But that's because I hated the first two so much

    Holly was fine when she was first introduced and was a minor character compared to what she is now. King's obsession with her boggles my mind. Like all things, she has her supporters and I know plenty of people dislike Insomnia and it is one of my favorite King books. Different strokes and all that jazz.

    I agree with this entire statement. I LOVED Insomnia and will never forget that ending when I found out it was DT related. Never. And Holly? Donít get it. She isnít fun, interesting or captivating in any way. Donít get why King keeps using her!

    I like Holly but, as I think I might have said elsewhere, it has a lot to do with Will Patton's performance on the audiobook. He brings her to life in a way that makes her seem realistic.

    Just started The Summer that Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel.

    I can tell she has a background in poetry. I'm loving her prose. Enthralling read so far.

    So I have begun my Halloween reads for the year. I've read The Demonologist about Ed and Lorraine Warren, and I just finished Harvest Moon by James A Moore. That book was so good, the perfect Halloween read. I just wish now that I had waited a bit closer to Halloween to read that one.

    And currently I'm reading A Season with the Witch by JW Ocker. It's about a guy who moves his family to Salem for the month of Oct and embraces the Halloween season there. I've been out to Salem a few times and it's been a lot of fun, really bummed I won't be able to go this year.

    It sounds like you're off to a good start! I just looked up A Season with the Witch and it sounds pretty cool. I know there's no way I'm getting to anything more that I want to add to my list, but I'll add it anyway.

    I finished Malorie and am going to start Lore today.

    Let me know how Lore is. I've had A Season With the Witch on my Halloween reading list for a few years, so happy I'm finally getting to it. Will let you know how it is.
