Backlist Blast #15 – Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King & Owen King

Backlist Blast is a weekly book meme which was created by Milana @ A Couple Reads and Flavia @ Flavia the Bibliophile. The main purpose of this book blog meme is to feature and discuss backlist books. A backlist book is any title that was published 6 months ago or earlier. The purpose of Backlist Blast is to get us excited about and reading the backlisted books in our TBR piles.



Sleeping Beauties
In this spectacular father/son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men?

All around the world, something is happening to women when they fall asleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed, the women become feral and spectacularly violent…

In the small town of Dooling, West Virginia, the virus is spreading through a women’s prison, affecting all the inmates except one. Soon, word spreads about the mysterious Evie, who seems able to sleep – and wake. Is she a medical anomaly or a demon to be slain?

The abandoned men, left to their increasingly primal devices, are fighting each other, while Dooling’s Sheriff, Lila Norcross, is just fighting to stay awake.

And the sleeping women are about to open their eyes to a new world altogether…


Released: 26 September 2017

Has anyone read this book? Would you recommend it? Should I move it to the top of my TBR pile or unhaul it?
