[Book Talk] It by Stephen King (& Movie Thoughts!)


Reading In Winter

Book Details:

Format: Paperback
Source: Bought
Read: September 2017


Derry, Maine is just an ordinary town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part, a good place to live.

It is a group of children who see – and feel – what makes Derry so horribly different. In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurks, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one’s deepest dread.

My Thoughts

So I have never actually read a full Stephen King novel. Earlier in my reading life, back in my…

My first Halloween promotion of the month is for Riptide by author Claudette Melanson.  Claudette has also given us an excerpt, enjoy.



In order to tear herself free from the deadly pull which is drawing her under, Maura must enlist the help of her preternatural family, exposing her newfound friends to a danger none of them have ever had the misfortune to face before. Can she be saved or will the riptide drag Maura under…along with those she loves the most…


“Maura! Drop him,” growled a voice saturated with darkness. I obeyed. Gavin crumpled to the ground, lacking the strength to remain upright.

“Millicent!” I was beyond relieved to find it wasn’t her fair-haired sister. Her brow drew in and downward with anger, but she still allowed me to rush into her arms. “I got my elixir!” I announced, like a child who’d earned an A on her test…

With the right words, and for the right price, I can do anything. Now a fairy duke has come to hire me, promising me a fortune in exchange for one man’s life. But this man is a king, one of the most powerful Shining Ones in existence. I could kill him with a song or things could go horribly wrong. Hopefully, this job isn’t my last lullaby.

[Book Talk] The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey


Reading In Winter

Book Details:

Format: Hardcover
Source: Publisher
Read: August 2017


Alaska, 1920: a brutal place to homestead, and especially tough for recent arrivals Jack and Mabel. Childless, they are drifting apart – he breaking under the weight of the work of the farm; she crumbling from loneliness and despair. In a moment of levity during the season’s first snowfall, they build a child out of snow. The next morning the snow child is gone – but they glimpse a young, blonde-haired girl running through the trees.

This little girl, who calls herself Faina, seems to be a child of the woods. She hunts with a red fox at her side, skims lightly across the snow, and somehow survives alone in the Alaskan wilderness. As Jack and Mabel struggle to understand this child who could have stepped from the pages of a fairy tale, they come to love…
