Coming to a television near you… The creepy tale ‘The Mist’, was first published in Stephen King’s 1980 horror anthology Dark Forces.
From The Mist website:
“Based on a story by Stephen King, Spike’s “The Mist” centres around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.”
The show premieres on June 22nd on the TV network ‘Spike’ (owned by Viacom), and will star Alyssa Sutherland, Morgan Spector and Frances Conroy.

The series was created by Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis Lynn for MTV, and satirised US high school life and suburban America, as well as biting commentary about popular culture, societal expectations and pressures, and social class. It spoke to many of us who were teens during those years, especially those who could understand Daria’s need for something more than this strange and superficial world we were born into.
Daria often buried her self in a book (we here at Reading Addicts can all relate to that!) and the books she read were mostly high-brow, darkly themed, or classic literature. She was actually a pretty wonderful role model to have!
Thanks to multiple nerdy blogsters in the World Wide Web we now have a comprehensive list of all the books Daria read or referenced in her 5 years on television. Find them below, along with links beside them to purchase a copy for yourself if you are missing it from you collection.
Can you match Daria book-for-book?
There is one, in my opinion, who captured him like no other… David Tennant, in a 2009 BBC rendition of the play.
