Stephen King books I've read…

I rented and watched The Mist this week.  It’s based on a novella of the same name by Stephen King, which I read years ago.  As the years rolled by I kept wondering when it would finally hit the big screen. 

The movie was super scary with great special effects and good casting.  Is it the one I would have made? No.  But that’s okay because these things rarely play out the way you would so them.

Watching the movie got me to thinking about how many King books I’ve read over the years.  And I thought to myself; “Well here’s another NaBloPoMo list.”

  • Carrie
  • Cujo
  • The Tommyknockers
  • Pet Sematary
  • Firestarter
  • The Dark Half
  • Thinner (as Richard Bachman)
  • Needful Things (my favorite King movie)
  • It
  • The Green Mile (this one was just like seeing the book come to life)
  • Christine
  • The Stand
  • Skeleton Crew
  • Rose Madder
  • Misery
  • Silver Bullet
  • The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
  • Night Shift
  • On Writing (excellent)
  • From a Buick 8

  3. I’ve only read “On Writing” so far (I’m in the middle of “The Stand” now)–and I agree. Excellent.

  5. I read:

    From A Buick 8
    Misery

    and i believe that is it.

    I liked what I read, but I’ve got so much reading to do, and not enough time.

  7. I am a HUGE Stephen King fan, but you definitely have read more of him than I have. I’ve seen “my” movie Carrie but haven’t read the book, and It and Misery were my favorites ~ I read It when I was a teenager and it took me forever to get thru it. I’ve probably read half of those… and a few of his short stories, too.

  9. I’ve read them all and then some. I’m pretty sure I’ve read all of his novels and short story collections by this point. No big surprise there, me being a King addict)

    I was happy that The Mist stayed so true to most of the story, but both times I watched it the ending of the movie left me reeling.

    I was so sure they would sugar coat the ending of the movie so they could have a “happily ever after” (as they often do change the more morbid parts of Kings novels when they are put to film).

    I’m still not sure if I like the ending of the movie or not.

  13. I have read all of his books too. He’s my all-time favorite author and I have all the books in hardback and paperback. (dorky, huh?) “The Stand” is my favorite, having read it several times over the years.

    I just watched “The Mist” last night. My favorite story come to life in a movie is “The Shawshank Redemption”. Love, love, love that movie.
