Finders Keepers (Bill Hodges trilogy #2)by Stephen King. Published June 2, 2015 by Scribner. CDN $28.46 Hardcover edition.
“Wake up, genius.” So begins King’s instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn’t published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.
Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.
Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever. (goodreads excerpt)
I have been a huge Stephen King fan since I read “Eyes of the Dragon” when I was a kid. He is the master story teller and my all time favorite author.
Finders Keepers is the second in the trilogy after Mr Mercedes. I liked this book even more than the first. I loved the characters, the suspense the plot everything. The story is gripping and engaging. I love how he brings back the characters and blends the stories together. At first I forgot that it was a sequel the story is that engaging on it own, but then you get into the story and realize how he has masterfully weaved the first book and this one together. Amazing author.
I won’t go into much detail as I hate to give anything away. suffice it to say I was not disappointed and the teaser at the end leads one to believe that the next story will be just as enticing!
5 stars for me!

Mr Mercedes by Stephen King. It was nice to read a Stephen King book again. This was really amazing. I was a little worried when I had heard mixed reviews but was not disappointed at all!
Frostbite (Vampire Academy #2) by Richelle Meed. OMG I love this book and the whole series. Amazing is all I can say.
Catch Me When I Fall by Vicki Leigh. I really enjoyed the story line but it had something missing in terms of editing. The story was very original.
Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy #3) by Richelle Mead. LOVING this storyline!
Just downloaded Sacrifice by Brigid Kemmerer on my Ipad and can’t wait to dive in. I loved this series so far.
And as always you never know what little treasure will show up and DEMAND to be read. Happy reading everyone.

He started to raise his head to see if it was happening, and a huge black tire ate up his vision. He felt the woman’s hand grip his forearm. He had time to hope that the baby was still sleeping. Then time ran out.
Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King.
Decided to stray from the usual read this week and get into something a little darker. I love Stephen King and haven’t read one in a while. OMG I missed his writing! So far amazing!
