📚 My Stephen King Journey

Some of my collection 😊

Hey there and a huge welcome to my blog.. Barbs Book Club 📚 I’m Barbara, 37 years old from Belfast in N Ireland, we are currently still in lockdown so just setting myself lots of reading goals and some challenges to see me through these rough weeks behind us and ahead of us.

One of the challenges I set myself after seeing lots of Stephen king fans chatting about it is the Stephen King Journey. Basically u buy, read and review all of his books in order of release so since the start of May I’ve been collecting and buying second hand copies and I’ve been lucky enough to b gifted some for my birthday last week as well so I’ve quite the collection already which I’m very proud of and can’t wait to start reading. So this is a little side challenge and I’ll b popping reviews on all the books as I read them here on my blog so follow my journey here… no idea how long it’s going to take but like all my reading challenges I just want to have fun and no pressure xx
