So what, it haven’t even been a week since I posted a list of the 10 books I most wanted to read right now – and already, I’ve had a change of heart…! Despite not being done with the year-long read-a-long of Clarissa, I’ve decided to join another read-a-long! And because reading the world’s longest novel in the English language wasn’t enough, I’ve decided to join a read-a-long where you have to read 8 novels. Yes, please, I would like to have my head examined right about now…
But see, I’ve wanted to read the Dark Tower series since I was a little girl. Or well, maybe not a little girl but a teenager and a not very old one at that. And we own the 7 of them, haven’t yet bought the latest published one but we have the rest.
And I like Stephen King. He’s one of my favorite authors. And the villain from The Stand, Randall Flagg, is supposedly in The Dark Tower series. And he’s a seriously nasty fellow. And cool to read about! So how could I not join?
The read-a-long, the EPIC read-a-long no less, is hosted by The Stephen King Challenge blog and Michelle from The True Book Addict and you can read more about it all here. The read-a-long has already started – in fact, I should be about 100 pages into it by now… So yeah, I’m behind before I’m even started.
Here’s the reading schedule:
- September: The Gunslinger, Book 1
- October: The Drawing of the Three, Book 2
- November: The Waste Lands, Book 3
- December/January-: Wizard and Glass, Book 4
- February: The Wind Through the Keyhole, Book 4.5
- March/April: Wolves of the Calla, Book 5
- May: Song of Susannah, Book 6
- June/July: The Dark Tower, Book 7
There’s only 18 of us doing the read-a-long so far so go join and be merry – or scared senseless, as you see fit ;-)
