Reading Challenge Book Review: Christine- Stephan King

Image
With as much Stephan King as I have read I was kind of surprised that I had never read this book but about halfway through the first chapter my mind began to wonder and I thought maybe this is why.  I have that problem with his writing sometimes.  I think he is brilliant, he is one of my favorite writers, but there is some of his writing that I just can't connect with and Christine is one of those books.

I finished it, but it took me longer than most books do and I had to force it.  I will admit though...it really, really gave me the creeps.  Not in the sleep with my light on for a week kind of way that Pet Cemetery did but I was kind of glad I don't drive. 

As much as I didn't connect with the book the malevolence of Christine came pouring through the pages as I got closer to the end of the book and I was glad to be done with it.  Definitely not something I will reread, probably not even something I will keep on my bookshelf.   I don't even think I'll watch the m…

My thoughts on the A to Z Challenge

Image
First off, I'm just kind of happy I made it through, as my followers can attest to I was not up to anything close to my regular writing at the end there.  I got behind and with any sort of theme to focus my posts on I floundered I bit.  But I caught up and finished on time (yay me!)


I loved doing the A to Z Challenge, I love writing and I need as much practice as I can get but I think to do it again I would have to have a theme.  Which is weird for someone as unstructured as I am about my writing but in order to guarantee that I have something to write about every day I need a prompt. 

In the process I found some great new followers, (Yay!) welcome by the way.  I am happy that you guys decided to stick around, it's a whole lot of crazy and random around here.  Feel free to join in the fun!  (seriously I love comments, I get all giddy)

I also found lots of great blogs to add to my read everyday list (or at least every second day as I don't do much when I work a long shift)…

Hey, It's May!

I like May, it marks the beginning of the summer season.  It comes along with a bit of a slowdown at work (thank goodness because I thought I was turning into a robot) and a chance to get outside more and enjoy the warmer weather.   It also marks the end of the A to Z Challenge (huge sigh of relief) which I am very happy to have finished.

There is a lot I am looking forward to this month as well, going to have a big crackdown on the lack of training I have been doing now that the warmer weather is here.  Looking forward to some great walks with hopefully some great picture taking opportunities.  I know I got some awesome shots last year.  (which is amazing since I am a terrible photographer)

Then of course there is The Avengers...I have been looking forward to this movie with great anticipation since about half a second after Captain America ended.  I am not for a minute worried that I am going to be disappointed and not just because of the drool worthy cast, it's because I have t…
