  1. I love that you talked about the fire hose! Just think about all those times that you swear you saw something coming out of your closet when you were a kid (or, even as an adult!). Or, when you are walking at night and your eyes play tricks on you (or, do they?). Great point!!

    • I know I’ve mentioned before on my blog how I’m not really scared by horror books (though movies are another story…) but that is the one scene I’ve read so far that really got my adrenaline going! Because yes, even now, I can completely put myself in that place of seeing something completely innocuous and assigning all sorts of sinister properties to it and then having the ridiculous arguments in my mind.

  2. I recently reread The Shining in preparation for Doctor Sleep. I missed so much the first time around. Then again, I was probably only 14 when I read it the first time…

    Clever string of blog posts! Thanks for stopping by my site. :)

    • I read it for the first time last year, but I’m still glad to be re-reading it so it’s all still fresh in my mind. Thanks for reading!

  3. I think it’s great that you’re hosting two read-a-longs! I’m participating in read-a-longs for the first time ever this month and am enjoying it so much, I’m already looking forward to hosting one someday myself :)

    • It’s been great fun to organize. I don’t usually do read-alongs because I can’t read more than one book at a time unless one is a re-read… so I’ve been okay for this, and I think I’m going to re-read a couple others while I try to draw out Doctor Sleep.

    • Usually I don’t get quite as frantic as Danny about it, but especially when it’s dark, I’ll think I see something out of the corner of my eye, and then I’ll spend two minutes staring at shadows trying to figure out what it was I actually saw (when it was probably just one of those annoying eye floaties).
