Monthly Summary: February 2023

Welcome to another Monthly Summary on Pages and Tea.

FairyTaleFebruary’s reading began with a book I’ve been looking forward to for a while now – Fairy Tale by Stephen King. I wondered whether I’d over-hyped myself for this, I’d been looking forward to it so much, but that turned out not to be the case. I took my time reading this, making it last as long as possible because I didn’t want to leave the world of Empis and the characters Charlie and Radar behind.
The book reminded me very much of places visited in the Dark Tower series and that of course has made me want to resume my series reread, so I might be tempted to pick up Wolves of the Calla soon.

I’ve managed to post a couple of reviews for books I finished towards the end of last year, including Something Wicked This Way Comes which, by coincidence, gets a mention in Fairy Tale. I was really glad I’d already read Something Wicked… as it made me smile when Charlie took the book home to read, knowing what he was about to discover.

I’ve already started another book, a serial killer thriller, which no doubt I’ll mention again next month, so for now, here’s a summary of February on Pages and Tea…

    I know I’ve said it before, but I need to get back to Fairy Tale! I started reading it but then became over powered by review books. Looks like you had a very good month. I hope March will be good as well😁

      I’m slowly re-reading the Dark Tower and the last one I finished was Wizard and Glass. Fairy Tale definitely gave me the same vibes as the later part of that book, and also The Waste Lands. Hope you enjoy it if you do read it.

    I’m so curious about Fairy Tale but something continuously holds me back. It’s awesome to hear the connections, at least conceptually, you’re making with his Dark Tower series too. That did remind me that I need to continue with that series myself, having quite enjoyed the first book. Happy reading! 😀

      I liked Fairy Tale so much because it was a return to fantasy, and feeling like it could be part of the Dark Tower world was good too and has made me eager to continue my series re-read.
      Glad you enjoyed the first DT book, it’s one that seems to generate mixed thoughts but I really enjoyed it too 😀
