Stephen King's latest novel, The Outsider, was released today. (I am excited about this one!)
I just bought my copy ($30! - this is when being a Barnes & Noble member pays off, as I saved myself 40%) My local store received 5 boxes and are expecting them to not last the day(!) I was there when they opened, and I think everyone in the store was grabbing a copy, so they may just be right.

I included a link to King's website, as he released a Free Short Story [Laurie] that he calls "an appetizer to the main course". It is a 32-page pdf file. I read it last night, and it is not at all what I was expecting. (As the story got rolling, I was expecting something similar to Jack Ketchum's Red, but that is not the direction King takes it.) A good story though. I will be reading The Outsider once I finish the book that I am currently reading.

"Clearly we liked each other, despite some run-ins and misunderstandings, some differences of opinion, dissimilar temperaments, differences of age and background, and probably blood type, and tastes in music, and God knew what else. . ."

If you enjoyed the first one, you will definitely enjoy this one as well. (As funny as the 1st one is, I will say that this one is even funnier!)

P. S. Make sure to stay through the credits - funny stuff! πŸ˜†

Terry Goodkind returns to the Thriller genre with a vengeance! If you have already read NEST then you know what to expect with these two stories, though if you thought NEST was intense, The Girl in the Moon increases it ten-fold!! (If you have not yet read Nest, it is not necessary to read first, though I do suggest doing so.)

Trouble's Child is a short novella [64 pgs] that is the perfect introduction to the character Angela Constantine. It is not necessary to read before reading [the full-length novel] The Girl in the Moon though it might be a good idea to try it first - if you like it, then you should have no issues with The Girl in the Moon.


The Girl in the Moon could very well be the best thriller/suspense novel of the decade! It has a real, scary premise, and it keeps you on the edge-of-your-seat! It is darker than any of Goodkind's prior novels, so be prepared. Angela Constantine is a sick/twisted/demented heroine (until you understand her past). There are certain (gruesome) parts that are hard to read, but if you can push through the graphicness, you will be rewarded.

This book contains several intense, riveting, nail-biting, suspenful sequences. It took all of my will power, in certain parts, to not turn the pages and scan ahead. This book reads like a movie! (When you get to the Border Crossing, you will desire to see it on a big screen, rather than just in your head.) If you have read Goodkind's epic fantasy The Sword of Truth series, you will recall Richard's "Dance of Death" with his sword. Angela achieves the same feat, except with guns (think of the "Gun Kata" sequences from the film Equilibrium).

If you plan on reading only one novel this year, I would make it this one!

5/5 Skulls (for both stories)

My oldest daughter has YouTube Red, so today we streamed their new show Cobra Kai.
It is 5 hours long (10 - 30 minute - episodes)

[This is why I choose to not have any streaming services - it is too easy to get "sucked in".]

If you are a fan of the original Karate Kid and you have YouTube Red, then this show is definitely worth watching! Though I will say that it is not kid-friendly 😞
