Reading a Stephen King book

Those who know me will be shocked by that title. I’m not a horror fan and have never (really) never read a book by Stephen King.

That doesn’t mean I don’t have any of his books – I do have one: On Writing.

Problem is, I can’t bring myself to read that either – I have Kingphobia …. Thing is, I don’t even have the print book – just the ebook version, so my reasoning gets weaker by the minute. Still, reviews like this take me a step closer. Maybe I’ll move it up the list a little; perhaps add it to my 2018 must-read list.

If you’ve read it, tell me what you thought of it. Is it as good as they say?

If you didn’t enjoy it / find it useful, please tell me … every excuse or bit of ammo will help 🙂

Something a little different today! Theresa review’s “Stephen King On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft” from the Master of Horror himself. (Genre: Non-Fiction/ Memoir)

  1. For me, it was just ‘okay.’

    Many hold it as some be-all, end-all, but the title is correct – it IS a memoir…with a nugget of wisdom here and there. Don’t understand all the hype.

    *Nothing to see here folks, move it along.* 😏

    1. Now that you mention it, I think that’s my problem. I remember starting to read and wondering when the words of wisdom would kick in.
      I’ll probably try to read it again, just to get it off my list.
      Then gain, I might not … 🙂
