Bag of Bones Book Review Stephen King

If you’re asking yourself, “Does Stephen King really need more book reviews?”, the answer is no – he really doesn’t. As one much more published and well-established reviewer once said, “Stephen King could write a grocery list and people would buy it.” With this also being true, Bag of Bones remains one of Stephen King’s
