ITalong - I CAVED!


I've caved to ITalong pressure ---hey, who can resist a horror-fest and a few nightmares as a result?  After years (25+) since reading Stephen King, IT will be my 5th SKing book in (12) months --I'm hooked once again. (This is one I never read for some reason so although I'm behind most of you, hope to download the eBook this weekend and get reading.

Here are some details about the ITalong, I copied from another post: 
  • Tweet IT -  #ITalong readalong of Stephen King’s novel, IT, about a bad town with an evil clown.
Won't you join in?

  2. Better you than me! I can't read King or horror - I'm too spooked. But have fun!

  6. I've mostly seen movies based on his books...I did read his newest one (11-22-63), but it wasn't a horror story. IT and clowns scare me!

    Enjoy!

  7. 'Who can resist?' ME! I was scared as a kid by scary books and movies, and have learned my own imagination is way too strong. :<)

  8. I have It and need to read it, too. I've signed up for The Stephen King Project and hope to read this book, eventually!

  9. I love everything about this book apart from the ending. As you've never read it before, you're in for a treat!

  10. If it was any other Stephen King book I could probably be tempted to join in. My fear of clowns needs no help at this point though. :) Have fun with the readalong!

  13. Ah, you're braver than I...there are only a few King novels I've ever been able to finish. This wasn't one of them. However, I am reading his 11/22/63 (or whatever that title is about JFK's assassination) this November. That should be interesting! Good luck with your read.

  16. I caved too, Diane! As if I don't have enough on my reading plate, but I can't resist at least trying. And I've been wanting to read It for a long time. I'm really going to be getting my Stephen King on because I'm also hosting my EPIC Dark Tower read-a-long over at my Stephen King Challenge blog. The entire Dark Tower series from Sept through July of next year!

    I'm participating in #italong over at my horror blog, Castle Macabre. I thought it was a perfect fit. ;O)

  17. I read 2/3 of IT in high school until my mother found it and confiscated it. I had borrowed it from a friend so... oops. Plus, it was 10X scarier, not knowing how it ended, so I don't know that my mother accomplished what she'd hoped with taking it away! Never did get around to finishing it, but I liked what I read.
