Book Description:

For 1500 years, the Klingons have revered him as their first emperor, the legendary warrior who united their people and taught them the meaning of honor, but the truth of his incredible life has been shrouded in myth and fables… until now. A clone of the original Kahless now reigns as emperor, but the discovery of an ancient scroll throws the legends into doubt and threatens to tear the Klingon empire apart. Surrounded by treachery and rumors of revolt, this new Kahless can trust no one – except Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Worf of the “U.S.S. Enterprise”.

True Detective meets The Exorcist in this gripping YA mystery debut about one girl’s exorcism—and her desperate quest to reunite with her demon.

Clare has been miserable since her exorcism. The preacher that rid her of evil didn’t understand that her demon—simply known as Her—was like a sister to Clare. Now, Clare will do almost anything to get Her back. After a chance encounter with the son of the preacher who exorcised her, Clare goes on an adventure through the dark underbelly of her small Southern town, discovering its deep-seated occult roots. As she searches for Her, she must question the fine lines between good and evil, love and hate, and religion and free will. Vivid and sharp, The Good Demon tells the unusual story of friendship amid dark Gothic horror.

Misery By Stephen King: A Book Review and Movie Comparison

Today Kim is going to bring you a book review and movie comparison to Stephen King’s Misery:

Misery
Author: Stephen King

Published: June 8, 1987

Kim’s Rating: 5 stars

Book Description:

Bestselling novelist Paul Sheldon thinks he’s finally free of Misery Chastain. In a controversial career move, he’s just killed off the popular protagonist of his beloved romance series in favor of expanding his creative horizons. But such change doesn’t come without consequences. After a near-fatal car accident in rural Colorado leaves his body broken, Paul finds himself at the mercy of the terrifying rescuer who’s nursing him back to health—his self-proclaimed number one fan, Annie Wilkes. Annie is very upset over what Paul did to Misery, and demands that he find a way to bring her back by writing a new novel—his best yet, and one that’s all for her. After all, Paul has all the time in the world to do so as a prisoner in her isolated house…and Annie has some very persuasive and violent methods to get exactly what she wants….

Kim’s Review:

This is easily my favorite of King’s books that I’ve read so far. The movie was brilliant, in almost every way. So of course, I needed to read the book. And the book was brilliant as well! It’s a fascinating look at obsession. As a book nerd who has favorite authors that I adore, I totally understand Annie’s fangirling through the whole book. How Paul deals with her would fit in just fine in any Criminal Minds episode. Throw in Annie’s obvious mental illness and high functioning, she’s terrifying! I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who likes criminal psychology. Spending all the reading time analyzing and considering just adds another level of enjoyment! I really liked this book!
