Standalone Sunday : Under the Dome

About Standalone Sunday…

Standalone Sunday is a feature created by Megan @ BookslayerReads where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s so much focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!

Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Please link to your post back to Megan @ BookslayerReads post!🙂

Goodreads Synopsis…


On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when — or if — it will go away.

Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens — town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing — even murder — to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.

    1. 😂 The ending is super random and weird!!! Good old Stephen King!! It is a great story though!! I’m not sure how he continues to bring out such amazing stories! I’m super excited for his new book with his son, sounds creepy.
      The show was good, it doesn’t stick to the book though. I’m not sure if I ever finished watching it, I might have to rewatch it.
      I just watched A Good Marriage on Netflix, that was a good movie! Made me want to read the book.


    1. Haha yeah it is giant!! I have IT sitting on my shelf to read but the size of that keeps putting me off. Plus I’m not sure if I am ready for nightmares hahahaha.
      I hope you get to read this soon, it is a great read.
