Teaser Tuesday with Doctor Sleep

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This is one worth reading just for the journey alone. DOCTOR SLEEP is the sequel to THE SHINING. Have you ever wondered what happened to Dan Torrance? Find out. So far, it's classic Stephen King.


Here's your teaser:
Abra thought she might be the most beautiful woman she had ever seen. Also, she realized at once, and without a shadow of a doubt, she was insane. (page 220)

  1. I didn't even realize there was a sequel to The Shining! (Where have I been?)

    Have a great Tuesday. ☺

  2. I avoid horror. I've never read anything by Stephen King. I hope you are enjoying it though. This week my teasers are from Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill and Grave Dance by Kalayna Price. Happy reading!

  5. Doctor Sleep was a superb book. Extremely dark, even for King.

  7. I've thought about picking up that book but King's last few have disappointed me like he's telling the same stories over and over again.

  8. I'm kind of afraid to read this because I'm still traumatized by The Shining LOL. But I love this teaser.

  12. Love the teaser. It's like the page 69 test, where you turn to that page and read the first para. If you like it, buy the book; if not, put it back.

  13. I was really looking forward to this book, since there were so many positive reviews about it. However, I was disappointed so far and have put it down as I read other things. None of the characters are likeable, so I don't care if they live or die. (I haven't read far enough to be introduced to Abra, who I guess is the only sympathetic character in the book. I had high hopes for King's son's books too, but so far have a DNF for The Heart-Shaped Box for the same reason I don't like some of King's books - unlikeable characters.)

  14. Thanks for popping in, folks! I did enjoy the book, but the ending was predictable. Not my favorite of King's works.
