It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


This weekly meme is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.



I'm still reading:

This one has been sitting on my dusty bookshelf for so long, and Michelle at TuesBookTalk on Goodreads is hosting a read-a-long for October:

TITLE: 'Salem's Lot
AUTHOR: Stephen King
PUBLISHER: Signet
PUBLICATION DATE: August 1, 1976
FORMAT: Paperback
LENGTH: 427 pages
GENRE: Horror
ISBN: 9780451165886
Something strange is going on in Jerusalem's Lot ... but no one dares to talk about it. By day, 'Salem's Lot is a typical modest New England town; but when the sun goes down, evil roams the earth. The devilishly sweet insistent laughter of a child can be heard echoing through the fields, and the presence of silent looming spirits can be felt lurking right outside your window. Stephen King brings his gruesome imagination to life in this tale of spine tingling horror.




I'm listening to:

This classic has been on my TBR list forever!


AUTHOR: Anthony Burgess
NARRATOR: Tom Hollander
PUBLISHER: HarperAudio
PUBLICATION DATE: June 12, 2007 (first published 1962)
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 7 hrs and 42 mins
GENRE: Classics, Science Fiction/Dystopia
A vicious fifteen-year-old droog is the central character of this 1963 classic. In Anthony Burgess's nightmare vision of the future, where the criminals take over after dark, the story is told by the central character, Alex, who talks in a brutal invented slang that brilliantly renders his and his friends' social pathology. A Clockwork Orange is a frightening fable about good and evil, and the meaning of human freedom. And when the state undertakes to reform Alex to "redeem" him, the novel asks, "At what cost?"

This edition includes the controversial last chapter not published in the first edition and Burgess's introduction "A Clockwork Orange Resucked."


I just finished:

This was a re-listen, and I think I loved it even more the second time around!

TITLE: The Exorcist
PUBLISHER: HarperAudio
PUBLICATION DATE: October 4, 2011
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 12 hrs and 51 mins
GENRE: Horror
Four decades after it first shook the nation, then the world, William Peter Blatty's thrilling masterwork of faith and demonic possession returns in an even more powerful form. Raw and profane, shocking and blood-chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.



What are you reading? Have you read any of these books and, if so, what did you think? Please let me know in the comments and, if you are also participating in this meme, leave me a link to your blog post so that I can stop by!

  2. Happy Halloween. I didn't choose a scary read in the end, it was my intention. I love horror movies, Stephen King books into movies are fantastic.

    1. Happy Halloween, Marce! I do think King's movies have been done well. Carrie and The Shining are probably my favourite movies, as well as The Mist.
