Here is what Justin is currently reading...

"Revival: A Novel" by Stephen King

In a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. Jamie Morton looks up to see a striking man, the new minister. Charles Jacobs, along with his beautiful wife, will transform the local church. The men and boys are all a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls feel the same about Reverend Jacobs—including Jamie’s mother and beloved sister, Claire. With Jamie, the Reverend shares a deeper bond based on a secret obsession. When tragedy strikes the Jacobs family, this charismatic preacher curses God, mocks all religious belief, and is banished from the shocked town.  

Jamie has demons of his own. Wed to his guitar from the age of thirteen, he plays in bands across the country, living the nomadic lifestyle of bar-band rock and roll while fleeing from his family’s horrific loss. In his mid-thirties—addicted to heroin, stranded, desperate—Jamie meets Charles Jacobs again, with profound consequences for both men. Their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil’s devising, and Jamie discovers that revival has many meanings.

The books from the last edition of "From The Hold Shelf (Or What I'm About To Read)" "Penny Chic: How to Be Stylish On A Real Girl's Budget" by Shauna Miller was okay. I adore Rachel Khoo, so I was all about "My Little French Kitchen" but "Love, Lashes & Lipstick: My Secrets For A Gorgeous, Happy Life" by Mally Roncal was my favorite out of the three. It was so interesting reading about her life and how she got started. I'd definately recommend it if you want a quick read.


  1. Your book sounds like fun. Justin's book sounds interesting. I can't believe there's a Stephen King book I've never heard of!

    1. It was a cute book.

      That book literately came out last week Tuesday. He said it was weird for a Stephen King book but he enjoyed it.
