At the end of last month, I had started reading โ€œThe Instituteโ€, by Stephen King. Itโ€™s between a mystery and horror story. It takes place in a secret facility where children with TP (telepaths) and TK (telekinetics) are taken and used to see how those two types of abilities can be used. While at โ€œThe Instituteโ€, the children are given tests and have rooms that are supposed to look like their own bedrooms, but arenโ€™t, of course. There is two parts to the โ€œThe Instituteโ€ and theyโ€™re called the Front Half and the Back Half. The front is where some of the newcomers stay for a few days and then depending on how they do, then they are moved to the Back Half.

Luke ( Lucas) Ellis had been planning a way to get out of โ€œThe Instituteโ€ after seeing what the Staff does to the children. He snuck out of his room and started shoveling under a chain fence that was in the playground area. On the way to going underneath the fence, he got cut on the legs, cheek and shoulder blades. He got out on the other side of the fence and started trying to figure out where he could go to get help from the Police that was farther away from โ€œThe Instituteโ€ as much as possible so no one would discover that he had gotten away from โ€œThe Instituteโ€ and try to bring him back.

Luke found a train that was delivering potatoes in boxes and snuck onto the train without the Conductor or the other train Staff knowing he was there. He snuck behind a few boxes and took a nap. The train Staff hadnโ€™t seen him even while they were unloading the boxes to the next stop for delivery.

While Luke has been on the train, Maureen (a cleaner) was found in a room that hadnโ€™t been used by any of the children, yet. The Head of Maintenance was called by Mrs. Sigsby (Director of โ€œThe Instituteโ€) to come to the room where Maureen was found. Maureen had committed suicide so that Lukeโ€™s disappearance wouldnโ€™t be noticed and they all couldnโ€™t question where he has gone.

Weโ€™ll see what happens next.

What have you been planning to read or just started? Weโ€™d love to hear all about it.

The next book I plan to read after โ€œThe Instituteโ€, by Stephen King will be: โ€œSaving Sarahโ€, by Melissa Storm.

I'm not a huge fan of SK, used to love his writing: Children of the corn, IT (nothing to do with computers!). I think I have grown out of his genre. I prefer murder mysteries/detectives these day. There is an excellent writer, only on Kindle, called Solomon Carter. I am a advanced reader (proofreader) for him. He has lots of series of books, DI Hogarth, Dan Bradley/Eva Roberts mysteries. They are excellent and I count down the days to the next series. There are others but they do all tend to be similar, I do mix I some non-fiction as well. The main book I read is The Holy Bible and various Christian authors. Currently on a journey of reading the Bible in a year. Enjoying it so much, it's not a chore. Happy reading everyone. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Do you like James Patterson? He does mysteries. :-)

The authors you picked sound interesting. I will have to look into some of what they had done soon. Good suggestion for everyone. :-)

I do like James Patterson. Big fan of Alex Cross and I also like the women's murder club and his stand alone books.

That's fantastic! I have a lot of his books and certain series, too that I plan to read in the next few months coming up. :-)

Did you watch the film called Cross? That was good.

No. Did you see the The Womenโ€™s Murder Club series based on the books a few years ago? I watched it until it ended.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒˆ

Hi All, I finished Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. It was no surprise to me that Sophie delivered lot's of humor and it definitely did not disappoint. A must read!!!

One Day in December by Josie Silver is a Chicklit book that I couldn't put down either. I'm on page 203, roughly halfway through. I'm hoping to finish in the next two days.

A quick synopsis so I don't give too much away for all you Chicklit lover's is it starts off where Laurie, the main character, is pretty sure "Love at first sight" doesn't exist until she see's HIM on a snowy bus ride home.

They have not spoken but did exchange the "look" as "he" exits the bus at his stop.

Laurie spends the next year of her life searching every bus stop and Cafe in London with zero luck..

Until Laurie meets her new roommate Sarah's new boyfriend Jack...

Stay tuned you Chicklit lover's...

I'm on the edge of my seat..
