Musing Mondays

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!

A sequel to The Shining? Really?
Well, I saw the movie, but not read the book, so I guess I would have to do that first.

Ooh, that sounds intriguing! I didn't even realise he was writing a sequel!

HERE's my Musing Mondays post. :)

Great choice - I had no idea King was doing a sequel! I definitely look forward to reading that when it comes out, The Shinning was spectacular! :)

Here's mine:

WOW! I didn't know anything about Dr. Sleep. Stephen King is one of my all time favorite authors. I'll be on the lookout for this book. Thanks for letting us know about it!!

I heard about this recently. I've never read The Shining but the movie freaked me the best way possible :D

Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
