I thought The Unremembered Girl to be a very well written dark story. I don’t think I’ve ever read a story quite like this, but I can certainly understand that some folks live the same way as the characters. If you like dark stories and dark subject matter, I highly recommend this book!
This is actually classified as an autobiography, but it’s really so much more than that. Yes, we learn about Stephen King’s childhood, his family, his education, his catastrophic accident later in life, but throughout the book there is an entire education on what it takes to be a successful writer.
I’ll start this review of The Mistletoe Inn with a little disclaimer. The only reason I purchased this book – and paid full price, I might add – was because the Hallmark movie of the same name was going to premiere on Thanksgiving Day. It stars one of my favorite actresses – Alicia Witt. I was a little concerned because, even though I made the purchase several weeks before Thanksgiving, I didn’t actually start reading it until two days before Thanksgiving. However, that turned out not to be a problem. I eagerly tore through it in two days!
