Stephen King Movies In the Works

The movie It, based on Stephen King's novel It, is a classic amongst Stephen King fans and some horror movie fans. The It remake was a bit of a dud for quite a few people, but that hasn't stopped Stephen King fans from getting excited over It: Chapter Two. It: Chapter Two is scheduled to be released on September 6th, 2019.

An upcoming movie that is really exciting Stephen King fans is the remake of Pet Sematary. The original Pet Semetary was released in 1989, based on Stephen King's book Pet Sematary. The Pet Semetary remake is scheduled to be released on April 5th, 2019.

Endless Water, Starless Sky
by Rosamund Hodge

In the last days of the world, the walls of Viyara are still falling, and the dead are rising faster than ever.

Juliet is trapped—ordered by Lord Ineo of the Mahyanai to sacrifice the remaining members of her family, the Catresou, to stave off the end of the world. Though they’re certain his plan is useless, Juliet and her former friend Runajo must comply with Lord Ineo’s wishes—unless they can discover a different, darker path to protecting Viyara.

Romeo is tortured: finally aware that his true love is alive, he is at once elated and devastated, for his actions led directly to the destruction of her clan. The only way to redemption is to offer his life to the Catresou to protect and support them . . . even if it means dying to do so.

Another release on July 24th is also a good day for another group of fans, fans of the 1001 Dark Nights books. For those of you who don't know what 1001 Dark Nights books are, they are short stories by different authors allowing you to be introduced to said authors' books. Envy by Rachel Van Dyken is the latest 1001 Dark Nights' release. Envy is book #9.5 of the Eagle Elite series.

Every family has rules, the mafia just has more....
Do not speak to the bosses unless spoken to. 
Do not make eye contact unless you want to die. 
And above all else, do not fall in love. 
Renee Cassani's future is set.
Her betrothal is set. 
Her life, after nannying for the five families for the summer, is set
Somebody should have told Vic Colezan that. 
He's a man who doesn't take no for an answer. 
And he only wants one thing. 
Somebody should have told Renee that her bodyguard needed as much discipline as the kids she was nannying. 
Good thing Vic has a firm hand.
