Reel Reading for Real Readers: Stephen King Fest

ReelReading2I am not much of a horror reader, but I am a Stephen King fan. I remember the first of his books I read was It, but I don’t think I finished it. Too chicken. I also read The Long Walk, which I thought was an okay read until the end, and I thought it was stupid–probably because it made me mad.

My favorite King book is Misery, maybe because it’s more realistic than some of the others. Annie Wilks is a truly frightening character. (Now that I am a Criminal Minds re-run junkie, Annie scares me even more.)

Since I am trying to get many of my student readers to reach beyond YA fiction, I’m thinking a few Stephen King book talks with a few book trailers might be just the thing for Halloween.

The movie for Misery was almost as creepy as the book.

And, of course, the new movie version of Carrie is in theaters now.
