Book Club Brunch – Chapter 19

Book Club Brunch – Chapter 19

Excuse me…

I’ll just be over here cowering in a corner. Stephen King has officially made my life a persistent paranoia / fear. Last night I seriously made my husband search our apartment for “something scary” because I couldn’t fall asleep.

I do not do horror well.

I’ve quite literally been setting daily page counts (35+ pages per day) so that I don’t just lock it in a closet and never look at it again.

As an interlude to The Shining, I’ve been swapping back and forth between Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale and the modern retelling The Gap of Time. It’s been at least ten years since I picked up Shakespeare, and it’s like I can feel my brain working. It’s a muscle that I haven’t used in a while!

Who would have thought I’d think of Shakespeare as my “lite read”?

Wish me luck,

    Ahh, Big Little Lies looks so good! I want to know who is playing who though…

    And let me know about The Gap of Time – I loved Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and Written on the Body.

    I’m sorry about The Shining – Feel hugged! We’ll pick a good, non-horror book for you next month!
