Waiting on Wednesday (25)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.  Here is what I am most waiting for this week:

End of Watch (Bill Hodges Trilogy #3) - Stephen King (6-7-16)  
From Goodreads:
Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre, where eight people were killed and many more were badly injured, has been in the Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic for five years, in a vegetative state. According to his doctors, anything approaching a complete recovery is unlikely. But behind the drool and stare, Brady is awake, and in possession of deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room.

Retired police detective Bill Hodges, the unlikely hero of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, now runs an investigation agency with his partner, Holly Gibney, who delivered the blow to Hartsfield's head that put him on the brain injury ward. Brady also remembers that. When Bill and Holly are called to a murder-suicide with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet, one that will put not only their lives at risk, but those of Hodges’s friend Jerome Robinson and his teenage sister, Barbara. Because Brady Hartsfield is back, and planning revenge not just on Bill Hodges and his friends, but on an entire city.

In End of Watch, Stephen King brings the Hodges trilogy to a sublimely terrifying conclusion, combining the detective fiction of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers with the supernatural suspense that has been his trademark. The result is an unnerving look at human vulnerability and up-all-night entertainment.

Why I'm Waiting:  It's Stephen King.  That is reason enough.  And no, I haven't read the first two in the trilogy but they do look pretty sitting on my shelf.  I really like the bright cover on this one as opposed to so much white on the others.  What are you waiting for this week? 


  1. I haven't read a Stephen King in a while, but lately, I'm very tempted! Thanks for sharing. Here's mine: “MISSING PIECES”

  2. I haven't read any of this trilogy yet. It sounds good though and even better when all 3 books are out to read so no waiting! My WoW

  3. OMG he's coming up with another book? YES!

  4. Wish I could read Stephen King. I'm too much of a coward! Enjoy!

  6. Great pick I haven't read a Stephen King book but I don't think I will be reading any of his book. Because I really don't agree with some of his opinions. Thank you for stopping by my blog. :)

  7. Oh, Barb.....I have to be honest here.....Stephen King is not my cup of tea at all. Although I do love paranormal romance, as well as urban fantasy, I don't like the horror genre, and especially not Mr. King. However, I do hope you enjoy this book!!

    Happy Halloween, and thanks for dropping by and commenting on my own WOW post!! : )

  8. Okay I'm ashamed to say this, I was just having a conversation with a friend of mine yesterday, that I have yet to read anything by Stephen King...YET! I want to but I see the books and they are so massive and intimidating I don't know what to start with!
