The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @caffeinated reviewer. It’s a chance to share what we’ve been doing over the past week and showcase books and things we have received.

Welcome back to my blog! What’s going on everybody?

2019 It Read-a-long

October will soon be upon us and I would like everyone to consider the books they will be reading because I will be hosting an entire month read-along of It by Stephen King and I want to welcome anyone to read It along with me. It’s AS huge of a commitment as the book is, for real. I admit I’m not much of a fan of Stephen King’s writings but it doesn’t mean I don’t like them nor does it mean they are scary because to be honest I don’t think they are very scary.*shrugs*
There might be a first time for everything, however. Go float yourself, Pennywise! ha

So if you would like to read-a-long feel free to post the button on your blog and join me in reading It together.

Start: October 1st
Stop 1: October 8th at 345 pages – end of chapter 6
Stop 2: October 15th at 738 pages – end of chapter 11
Stop 3: October 22nd at 1063 pages – end of chapter 18
End: October 31st at 1392 pages

For me, the situation corresponds well with the events I will be participating in like the Countdown to Halloween and Fraterfest Readathon.

Favourite new YouTube channel: The Ace Family.

Here is something I recently watched on Netflix.

I recommend Bumblebee if you love Beast Wars and/or Transformers. I love how they maximize! haha. It was a favourite show I remember watching with my son back in the ’90’s Anyway, I was ecstatic over watching Bumblebee and thoroughly enjoyed myself too 🙂 He’s so cute in this show and cool. When he transforms himself into a yellow Chevy Camaro, his human friend complains about her beat-up yellow Beatle he previously chose to transform himself into. So not fair. I sympathize with her. Anyway, it was really good.

    I don’t know, I think IT would freak me out lol. I’ve never read a King book, can you believe that? I do like suspenseful reads this time of year though.

    Hope you have a great week! 🙂

      Really? I never used to like horror and it still isn’t my favourite but Stephen King isn’t that scary.

    I have read a couple of Stephen King books that were VERY creepy! I suffer from nighmares and all sorts of things trigger them, so these days I’m careful what I read and watch… Best of luck with your Read-a-long:)). I like the look of Bumblebee – it looks like something the grandchildren might like to watch, too. Have a great week, Jackie.

    Oh IT read along sounds super fine. I will try to join, if I get out of the reading slump. I have been always intimidated by the sheer size of it.

    Ohhh a read-along of it! That sounds fun. I don’t usually like Stephen King & I actually didn’t like the It movies but the book might be better!

  5. I read It when I was 12 and it scared me then, it has certainly made me look sideways at clowns ever since.

    Have a great reading week

    I actually wouldn’t mind reading this in manageable chunks. I should try and see if I have a copy already.
