Favorite Stephen King book?
Two words: Randall Flagg.
Three words: dark tower series
Yes!!! By far my absolute favorite!! And Mr Flagg happens to play a part……
Under the Dome.
That what I’m reading right now. 😃
Did you see the Netflix series? Maybe it was Hulu, but it was pretty good.
No…. I will check it out…. thanks!!!
I bought this a few months back, it’s in my enormous TBR pile
@Joe you will LOVE it!!
First one that I ever read!
Way better than the movie. Dont get me wrong i love kathy bates but they changes things i kinda wanted to see
The Shining. Dreamcatcher. And Under the Dome.
Duma Key. I love the picture he paints in the beginning as you’re getting to know the place
I haven’t read that one!! I’m guessing that you’d recommend it though lol
@Joe, I do recommend it 🙂
Nice, I’ll def check it out!
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon.
I couldn’t look at fiddle leaf ferns after reading it lol
My fave ❤❤❤ tho i could have done with out that ending lol
The stand talisman and black house!!!
I LOVE them all!! Even the ones he published under Bachman.
Oh me too!! Did you read desperation and the regulators?? I believe they were both under Bachman…
I have not read desperation all the way through and I had never heard of regulators!
The Regulators was Bachman and Desperation was King. They were written from different points of view as companion books. They are both really good.
I am going to have to look for that thanks!
Salem’s Lot…I think lol
The Eyes of the Dragon and The Breathing Method from Nightmares and Dreamscapes
Eyes of the Dragon is phenomenal. Way outside the box for him.
I know right. It is by far my favorite piece by him. 🙂
So what do you think about the new version of the movie?
I haven’t seen it, out already? I’m sure the first will still be far better. To me they always are.
Same question that I asked @Stephanie
Honestly, I don’t think it will be as good as the original with Tim Curry. I am going to see it, someday, but my expectations will be very low.
It’s so hard to choose just one. Needful Things is one of my favorites, though.
I read so many in my younger years that I just know I Loved, but the most recent one I read and Loved was Gerald’s Game😊
I felt lost in so many parts in gerard’s game…still finished it
Hard to pick!
The Dark Half or The Stand, but I love The Dead Zone & Bag of Bones too.
Wow, so many! I love Misery and Rose Red.
Bag of Bones
Misery uptill now
The Stand. Talisman and the Black house
Night Shift – a book of 20 short stories.
Rose Madder or the Wizard and the Glass.
Wizard and Glass is my #1 favorite!!! You ROCK!!
“It” “It” is one of those few novels that makes you scared inside your own house on a summer afternoon. I can’t even watch the trailer for the new movie coming out. I also liked Salem’s Lot, most of his early short stories sets and the book he wrote about being a writer.
Thinner and from a Buick eight
The Dark Tower series and Doctor Sleep
Ding ding ding we have a winner!!
So let me take it a step further…fav Dark Tower book?
@Joe it’s between the Wizards Glass and Wolfs of Calla
@Joe what’s your favorite from the series
Bro you’re blowing my mind….Wizard and Glass is my fav, with Wolves of the Calla a close second
@Joe great minds think alike
@Joe if you ever want to Buddy Read the series let me know. I’m do for a reread
@Joe what r u currently reading
Hmmmmm….I’ve never done that. I’m game 🙂
Oh and right now I’m reading The Aliens Vs Predator omnibus.
@Joe how is it
Very good…it’s four diff stories. It’s a really cool view on the predators “Society”
@Joe I will have to check out
The Eyes of the Dragon.
Never read one. Too chicken!
Oh you don’t know what you’re missing!!! He’s not all horror, I promise!
What’s a “not scary” one?
The Eyes of the Dragon, which is his foray into the fantasy genre kinda sorta. I’d start with that if I were you
Thanks. I know he is the best, but I get scared easily!
I haven’t read all of them—but Pet Semetary, The Talisman, The Shining, or The Dark Half… Difficult to decide!😍😍
All good picks 🙂
The Eyes of the Dragon and Pet Semetary
Pet cemetery. Very good. Not reading it again!
Did you see the movie
The movie pales in comparison. It is silly.
@Anita, why wouldn’t you read it again?
reading IT right now
That was good
My favourite too
Pet Cemetery 🙂
The Bazaar of Bad Dreams
Tommyknockers and Thinner
No, not my cup of tea…..
The green mile
The Green Mile
It! not only my fave book of his but of all time!
Full dark, no stars.
Hearts in Atlantis
Good one!! No one has mentioned it yet 🙂
The girl who loved Tom Gordon
The Stand (uncut)
The Long Walk… so …so… so… much
Heart felt book
Have you read it
Needful Things, Insomnia or IT
That Needful Things- made my skin crawl. I own Insomnia, but have not read.
Agree. Needful Things is one that not many read. Oh Insomnia will creep you out
The Dead Zone
Tie among Carrie (his first and first I read) and The Shining (scary beyond all get out) and The Stand (beautifully epic) and 11/22/63 (just great historic info woven in).
Its too hard a question
Anyone read the shorts- Everything’s Eventual?
Yep have read most of his
@Jessica I’ve been reading a bit differently this year- three thrillers; three memoirs; three short story collections. You get the idea. Saving the horror for October. It just seems right. 😀
Insomnia- I’ll be on it. Thanks for the recommendation.
Understand. I have just finished Finders Keepers. I read a bit of everything all year round
No worries its good. I enjoyed it and I read it a long time ago. It still sticks in my mind. Also enjoy Christine
@Jessica I read King’s On Writing too- a little bit of craft, a little bit of humor, a little bit of memoir. He has his reading list in the back.
I must check that out
@Jessica I’m looking at his recommended reads- expansive and varied. Ah, he started out as an English teacher. Makes sense.
@Jessica Great talking books. Off I go to do the things on that “to do” list. See ya around.
The Long Walk is my fav short ❤️
All of them
Mr Mercedes and Pet sematary
I am yet to read mr mercedes is it good?
@Mandy it’s brilliant, finders keepers was even better.. the whole trilogy is definitely worth a read.
The green mile!
The Long Walk… so much
Rose Madder is one of mine 😊
The Tommyknockers, The Green Mile, Under the Dome, 11/22/63
Duma key but i love all his books. A huge fan!
The Stand is my favorite book of SK. I also love Dolores Claiborne and Misery. The Dark Tower Series esp the Drawing of The Three.
Anna: Needful things. 🤗
Salem’s Lot… but I love all of them
Pet Cemetery or Misery
Wizards and Glass.
My personal favorite!!
It, Pet Sematary and Needful Things.
Dark Tower books, The Stand, Salem’s Lot, Rose Madder, hell, all of them!! 😁
Which Dark Tower did you dig the most? I’ve been asking everyone who mentions it. Wizard and Glass is my fav 🙂
Drawing of the Three and Waste Lands I think, although I love them all. The last book is great too but upset me so much that I can’t read it again!
Totally cannot read the final book again. I threw it at the wall lolol
I’m with @Louise, all of them 👍
I can’t choose😂😂. They are many.
Glad you agree
Yeah after reading made me be Careful what i whished for
Where are you from?
Me too. ILL.
Eyes of the Dragon was great because it’s not his “usual” work. Another one that ties into the Dark Tower series.
Oh absolutely!! I’m guessing that you’ve read the Dark Tower series too?
They’re my absolute favorite.
The Stand & The Shining (REDRUM)
Can’t pick, I love all of his work ❤ IT, The Shining and Christine are favourites and I love his short story books. Some amazing stories in there 👍
Yesssssss!! And the Regulators!
The short story anthologies.
Any one in particular?
Just wanted to thank everyone for your input and making this thread so fun! Made a couple of friends from it and got to talk about some awesome novels!!
Ahhh cant pick maybe insomnia or it
Both excellent pics !
I thought so 😀
How do you choose?
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordan
full dark, no stars. It’s the only Stephen King book I’ve read.
