This is my book tumblr blog as well as my personal blog because I found it hard to manage two blogs at the same time. My personal life seems to be tied up with books and reading.

Perhaps the most disturbing book I have read is Misery by Stephen King. It is so disturbing that I did not even make it halfway through the book. Stephen King is a master in creating these disturbing horror stories.

Paul Sheldon, author of a bestselling series of historical romances, wakes up one winter day in a strange place, a secluded farmhouse in Colorado. He wakes up to unspeakable pain (a dislocated pelvis, a crushed knee, two shattered legs) and to a bizarre greeting from the woman who has saved his life: “I’m your number one fan!”

Annie Wilkes is a huge ex-nurse, handy with controlled substances and other instruments of abuse, including an axe and a blowtorch. A dangerous psychotic with a Romper Room sense of good and bad, fair and unfair, Annie Wilkes may be Stephen King’s most terrifying creation. It’s not fair, for example, that her favorite character in the world, Misery Chastain, has been killed by her creator, as Annie discovers when Paul’s latest novel comes out in paperback. And it’s not good that her favorite writer has been a Don’t-Bee and written a different kind of novel, a nastynovel, the novel he has always wanted to write, the only copy of which now lies in Annie’s angry hands.

Because she wants Paul Sheldon to be a Do-Bee, she buys him a typewriter and a ream of paper and tells him to bring Misery back to life. Wheelchair-bound, drug-dependent, locked in his room, Paul doesn’t have much choice. He’s an entertainer held captive by his audience. A writer in serious trouble. But writers have weapons too…

  • Type 1: People that have read the book, and have spent days preparing themselves by repeating the mantra 'conceal don't feel'.
  • Type 2: People that think it's just another love story with a twist, and come out of the cinema shell shocked, and feeling like their hearts have been ripped out of their chests.

It’s been a long time since I reblogged something Harry Potter-ish.
