Waiting on Wednesday: 'Joyland' by Stephen King

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This week I'm waiting for:

Stephen King's 'Joyland' which comes out this June!
Joyland.jpgSet in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever
I don't read a lot of Stephen King but I love scary novels and Stephen King is, well, the king when it comes to that!

What are you waiting for?

  1. I haven't read Stephen King in forever, though he was one of my top favorite authors in my teens! I need to change that again... I haven't heard of this book before, but I've been fascinated with the idea of carnival/circus settings lately, so this is perfect :) Thanks for pointing it out to me!

  6. Heard about this new King novel, one of two he has coming out this year. The other is a sequel to The Shining. I haven't read anything by King recently, but have his 11/22/63 in my TBR pile.

    This is my first visit to your blog. Love it and am now following it.
