Getting to Know (3) + Questions Answered


Don't you just love my official button for the Getting to Know feature? I have Kelly over at the amazing blog Diva Booknerd to thank! She's fantastic. Thank you so much, Kelly!

Getting to Know (3):  In a week and a half I'll be starting my final semester in Graduate school. Some of you know this, but for those that do not, I am getting my Master's of Science in Library Science (which means I can be an official librarian). My dream librarian job is probably working with teens, but we'll see what the future holds. It's difficult to get a librarian job these days.

Answered from the Blog:

I had a couple questions left on my review for Joyland by Stephen King, so I wanted to go ahead real quick and answer those!

1. Will you be reading more in the future? (as in Stephen King books)

I do want to try more of Stephen King in the future. You always hear great things, but I'm not interested in everything he's done. I do want to try out a few though. I'm definitely interested in reading everything Joe Hill has written though (Joe Hill is Stephen King's son).

2. I'm actually scared to read Misery. Why did you find it just okay? 

I read Misery in high school so it's definitely been awhile since I've read it. I think it just dragged to be honest. It could have been more suspenseful if it wasn't as long, I think.

I really liked the two Joe Hll books I've read. And I've read ... 3, maybe 4 King books in my life. I wan to read that time travel one though.

Erika Sorocco said...

You hit the nail right on the head in terms of 'dragging'. I feel like a lot of King books get draggy, and takeaway from the element of suspense. :/

I've only read one Stephen King book so far... and that was Carrie. I read it earlier this year. It was pretty short, though, so I didn't find that it dragged at all.

It's been years since I read anything by King. They started sounding similar so I took a break but I did enjoy the ones I read.

King is a favorite, I think I have read them all including ones penned under a different name. I love a good suspense thriller and have been reading more of them lately.

Brandi Kosiner said...

Ah luckily since its slow I haven't read Misery

Grace @ RebelMommyBookBlog said...

Gosh I haven't read a Stephen King book in a LONG time. I did enjoy them though.

That is so cool about your degree, I had no idea! I hope you get your dream job, that would be awesome!

Misery is a book that I really need to read, I've seen the movie a few times and really enjoyed it. I read my first King book last year (Mr Mercedes) and loved it!

Nicole Hewitt said...

I never read Misery, but the movie was definitely freaky! I actually didn't even realize it was a book!

Librarian, fun! And congrats on the last semester! :D I kind of wish I would've gone into that too... being surrounded for books all day, YES! haha

Alex Ang said...

OMG This is so cool! I love when other bloggers do this because it lets me meet a ton of new bloggers I've never knew before.

Wow, that's so awesome that you're going to be starting your final semester of grad school!! I bet you're going to be a fantastic librarian. Crossing my fingers for you about getting a job working with teens. <33

I really do need to pick up some Stephen King books- while, like you, I don't think that all his books are for me, I'm intrigued by many! I also had no idea Joe Hill was his son... just goes to show that I'm living beneath a rock. :P

Love this feature so much (& that adorable button!!) :D

Stephen King has a way with storytelling. Even those who don't like his horror/thriller style can appreciate his way with words. It's as if you can't stop reading, whether your a fan of the plot or not. ;]
As for me, I am a huge Stephen King fan and love his style. There will definitely be more SK in my future ;]

BTW, I love the banner :]

Oooh good on you for almost finishing your degree! Best of luck for the feature and finding your dream job :)

I didn't know a Librarian's master's was a science degree! Well, I think at my university it is actually a Master's of Information degree. But being a Master of Library Science makes sense! Good luck to you, Lauren. There isn't a lot of job prospects in my field either, but if it's what you want to do, then you'll work your way up to it someday somehow!
