I’m actually a few books behind as I’ve finished the third, fourth, and fifth books. I am way behind where I should be to meet 50 books this year, but I’m pretty confident I’ll make it.
The third finished book was Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I love King’s books. I really can’t think of a bad one. This one however was amazing.
Doctor Sleep is a sequel to The Shining, but you don’t have to read the first to appreciate the second. However, Doctor Sleep is such a better book.
Perhaps it’s because I have grown as a writer or perhaps it’s because I’ve read a lot of King, but the artistic growth that he has had is amazing. Seriously, if you read The Shining and then Doctor Sleep, you’ll see what I’m talking about. The Shining was one of King’s first published novels. While it is an incredible book, the sequel far surpasses it.
Five stars. I highly recommend.
