You NEED to do this… πŸ€“

And that is read my favorite book, “Joyland,” written by Stephen King. 🎑

Published in 2013, “Joyland” instantly became my favorite book. After the first read, (six hours nonstop during a night before school) I was instantly hooked. I couldn’t for the life of me read another book without thinking about this lovely story. 😫

“Joyland,” is a mystery πŸ€” and crime πŸ”« story based at a North Carolina amusement park in 1973.

Reading that excerpt was enough for me to give this book a read. And that’s all I am going to tell you. I want you to delve into this story!Β πŸ“š

Hopefully, you’d have the same experience as me. I forgot to mention, I have given this book five total reads and am planning to do another over the summer!

Not excited to read this book yet? How about seeing where this story takes place. Cue the picture of the map!

This gorgeous masterpiece was illustrated by Susan Hunt Yule. I swear, after reading this book, I fell in love with all amusement parks! Big and small πŸ’•

Now that I think about it… It may have influenced my career choice… Wanting to someday work for an amusement park (writing/media aspect) 🀯
