Musing Mondays is a bookish meme hosted at MizB’s Should Be Reading. This week’s question is:
What are you most excited about reading, right now? (can be a book you’re currently enjoying, or a book that’s yet to be published, etc.)
This question could not have showed up at a better time. The book I’m most excited about? The upcoming sequel to my first and favourite Stephen King novel, The Shining.
I’m serious. It’s a book titled Dr. Sleep, and King is currently working on it. It is the story of the very same Danny Torrance, only forty years old this time. He works in a hospice, helping patients, until he comes across a tribe of psychic vampires who feed on people’s energies… or something like that. It sounds awesome, right? I did love King’s vampires in Salem’s Lot, and I can’t wait to read what became of little Danny; I did always wonder…
While the release date is far from out, it is confirmed, as of September 26th, that King is working on this book. If you’re as excited as I am, you can listen to this video of him discussing the idea behind the book!
