We’re excited to be offering one reading group the exclusive opportunity to read Stephen King’s new book, Sleeping Beauties – making your members some of the only people in the world to read his latest novel pre-publication.
We’ll select one group to be our ‘First Thursday Book Club’ – the same name as the book club featured in Sleeping Beauties – and they’ll receive early copies of the book on the first Thursday before publication. The group is asked to leave their reviews on Amazon, GoodReads or Reading Groups for Everyone.
This offer is part of Hodder’s #KingForADay celebrations, marking Stephen King’s 70th birthday – help us celebrate and head over to Twitter to share your favourites now.
About the book
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…
Closing date: 8 September
