I thought she was a very strong character even when she was afraid. Such a progression from the Mr. Mercedes series to The Outsider.(less)

COVER REVEAL!!!!!

******************

I know I pitched a fit about The Outsider not being the standalone novel that was promised (*cough cough*), but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't beyond stoked for another Holly Gibney and Ralph Anderson story in this collection.

I need this book ASAP! I'm ready to sell my soul ( Okay, I take it back, I already sold it to Lucifer Morningstar a.k.a Tom Ellis for additional Netflix episodes. But I still have nice kidneys! Oh come on bring more Holly mysteries and gimme my KING's book, I'm dying here!)

[10/03/19] - Unpopular opinion time! I am not a fan of this cover. It totally branches off from the style of The Outsiders and The Institute and I LOVED that style. Also, is that Church from Pet Sematary?

*************

[9/12/19] - Holly was one of my favorite characters from The Outsiders. I am beyond excited

*************

is this real?!

Is this for real?
This seems too good to be true?
Does the universe love me this much?

If you receive this book without author nor title, you'll KNOW it's a Stephen King from the very first pages. Mr Harrigan's Phone kinda reminded me of the first story of Hearts in Atlantis. The relationship between the two main characters is what you'll remember.

The Life of Chuck is the best story of the book and it took me on a ride that included several different feelings and moods, leaving you with a very nice taste at the end.

If it Bleeds is like you're reading The Outsider 2. If you liked

An ARC of this book was online just long enough for me to request it, and then the listing disappeared into thin air within 24 hours. Someone at Scribner seems to have jumped the gun, but I'm left over here salivating for it. It would sure make quarantine more bearable...

I can't wait to read this! King's novellas are some of my favorite stories. Full Dark, No Stars was gruesome and memorable, and Different Seasons was solid gold from cover to cover.
