So if I want to get a present for a new reader , a friend of my daughter .. who likes a bit of horror . What would you SK fans recommend ..... I love SK , but have not read the real horror ones ... I‘m thinking horror ... not tooooo bad. For an adult ... ?? Thanks x And I‘d love to get them into reading ....
Tall Order ?! !!!

TrishB If they‘re not really a reader then I‘d go for Misery - not our right horror but a great thriller. Most of the out right horror are really big books!! 3w
Cathythoughts @TrishB ok thanks! That‘s very helpful... I‘d love it if he really got into reading ... I‘ll go for that one ... sounds like a good bet 🤞🏻 3w
JillR @cathythoughts I‘ve only read his non-scary but my SK fan husband suggests The Shining... 3w

BookwormAHN Try Carrie 👻 3w
CarolynM Not my genre at all. Good luck! 3w
sprainedbrain For horror but not toooooo bad, I would suggest the Mr. Mercedes series. 3w
Cathythoughts @JillR sounds good ... he may end up getting more than one book 😁📚 3w
Cathythoughts @BookwormAHN @sprainedbrain thanks for your suggestions guys 👍🏻👏🏻♥️ 3w
Reggie Salem‘s Lot because vampires. Nightmares and Dreamscapes because it‘s a twisted book of short stories and sometimes if they‘re not readers short stories can lure them in. And Full Dark No Stars because it is four novellas longer than a short story and shorter than one of his books and they‘re creepy. 3w
Cathythoughts @Reggie thanks Reggie , I appreciate this 👍🏻 these sounds really good 3w
rohit-sawant Was pretty much gonna say what Reggie said. Short stories are a great introduction to his works as well as novels like Salem's Lot or The Shining. Hope they have a blast reading him! 3w

My library had a book sale this weekend and I was super happy with my finds. My Stephen King Collection continues to grow. It is my goal to one day own all of his works and I with these (as well as all the ones I already had) I would guess I am about halfway there.

Addison_Reads Great find! I have an extra Under the Dome. It's a softcover, used, in readable condition, but not perfect. If you don't have that one I'd be happy to #payitforward and send it to you. ☺ 1mo
jackilynn @Addison_Reads if I didn't already have it I would definitely take you up on that. Thanks for the offer though. It is always nice when us in the book community share our extra/used books. 1mo

What do you think of this ranking? I was surprised at no. 1 (the dead zone), which I haven't seen - not sure I was even aware of it! I need to rectify that and watch it. Without seeing that one, I probably would have put Shawshank or Stand by Me as no1.


JacqMac I think The Shining would be number one for me. And I‘d add Thinner and Needful Things before something like Creepshow. They didn‘t even make the list. And The Green Mile is only 14. I think we need to rewrite the list. lol 3mo
LibrarianRyan @JacqMac I agree. There are plenty I have not seen but this is not my order. For me 1. Stand By Me 2. Green Mile 3. Shawshank 4. RoseRed 5. Deloris 6. Carrie 7. Misery 8. Shinning 9. Stand (only the firs 2 hours, the rest can be pitched). 3mo
Pruzy Stand By Me and It (2017) are the only ones I‘ve seen, but is it just me or are there definite parallels between the two? 3mo
See All 6 Comments
Reggie Silver Bullet with Corey Haim isn‘t even on the list!!!! Booo!!!! And I can‘t believe they would put this It before the original miniseries. (even if the list says movies) 3mo
Oryx @Pruzy definitely very similar with the kids' friendships 3mo
Oryx @Reggie I haven't seen that one, but anything with Corey haim has my attention. Will have to look out for it. Agree with the miniseries of It - I like the original 3mo

When I see there is a movie that I am interested in but didn‘t realise there was a novel of it, I refuse to watch the movie until have finished reading the book. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Massive apologies to all you wonderful #constantreaders for being tardy (again) with this mont‘s open discussion posts. I just completely forgot. I‘ll be doing two posts, one for each of our March books, so look for the next post under a spoiler tag with either #Creepshow or #thegunslinger and join in! The posts are open format, so join in anytime! Thanks for your patience #losersclub 😘😘

On today‘s library trip, I found many book and author suggestion lists. I thought some of you might be in need of new reading ideas, so I‘ll post these one at a time. First are authors for fans of Stephen King.

My final King post for the day, I promise. Here‘s an easier to read schedule just for #LosersClub2019. Please refer to this when I slack and forget to post. 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ I will mostly be #ghosthosting not reading along, but I‘ll probably join in for at least a couple of these. Note that March includes a novel and a graphic novel.

LauraJ Thank you for #ghosthosting! 10mo
BookwormAHN Thanks 🖤 10mo
BookBabe Sweet! Love me some King. I‘m on a bit of a King kick lately. I‘ve only read 2 on that entire list though! Very tempted to join in on this in February and onward. 10mo
Karkar Yes! This year is going to be great!!! 10mo
DGRachel @Readingismyescape Here‘s the schedule for the rest of this year. 10mo
DGRachel @BookBabe Would you like me to add you to the list for discussion posts? You don‘t have to join in every month, just read the ones you‘re interested in. I think there‘s only two or three that I will read and one of those is a reread (Eyes of the Dragon is my favorite King). 10mo
BookBabe @DGRachel yes please! Sorry if it‘s a lot to ask, but please wait until the second book. The January selection is an epic trigger for me. Thank you! 10mo
DGRachel @BookBabe I totally understand. I‘ll make a special note on my saved list to add you in later. I‘m not reading January‘s book, either. 😘 10mo
AnansiGirl Thank you for your hard work and ghost hosting this epic King read along! 10mo
BookBabe 😘🤗❤️ 10mo
Bklover Thanks!❤️❤️😊 10mo
Readingismyescape @DGRachel Thanks again. I just started listening to Pet Sematary, which I borrowed from the library. So I will probably just go ahead and finish it. I do want to reread Cujo but I probably won‘t finish in time. I‘ll participate when I can. 10mo
DGRachel @teainthelibrary Here‘s the schedule for this year. 🤩 Again - it‘s super casual. Read the ones you want to, join the discussion if you feel like it, and just have fun. 😘 6mo

Pardon the tons of posts today, but I realized if I don‘t do this now, while I‘m thinking about it, I‘ll forget for days. See above for the full list of Stephen King books in publication order and the reading schedule for #LosersClubForever. @TricksyTails did her best to make this legible, but the man is a prolific writer. Best advice is to screenshot this image and then pinch to zoom in. The buddy read includes graphic novels. (Con‘t 👇🏻)

DGRachel Here‘s a list for reference that excludes graphic novels, if you‘d prefer to skip those: https://sk.listsofbooks.com/ #losersclub #stephenking #stephenkinginorder #kingfromthebeginning #constantreader #readalong #buddyread 10mo

DGRachel @ReadingsByTheC You‘re welcome! @TricksyTails did all the really hard work and now that I‘ve fully recreated the images for 2019, it should be even easier for me to keep up. I just need to set calendar reminders for myself. 10mo
daena Thank you for keeping us losers going @DGRachel !!! Looking forward to the 2019 selections! 10mo
DGRachel @Readingismyescape Here‘s the full schedule (at least, through what King wrote early last year when the list was first completed) 10mo
CSeydel Thanks!! I was just looking for this in my screenshots & couldn‘t find it. I‘ve been delinquent on this lately, but I‘m planning to pop back in for at least a couple this year! 10mo
DGRachel @CSeydel You‘re welcome. You can always do a # search for #LosersClubForever to find the full list and #LosersClub2019 to find this year‘s list. :) 10mo
CSeydel Perfect 👌🏼 10mo

I take a book with me everywhere! In the days before ereaders there were multiple "physical" books stuck in my purse (which is why I always had a huge purse). Now with my Kindle I can bring my whole library with me today as I go on a field trip for work. Pumpkin patch here I come!

Unpopular opinion :::::::::::::::::🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️
I really don‘t like Stephen King as a writer in general. All of the books I‘ve tried to read start out ok but the the big reveal or the “big scare” turns out to be some nonsense like a worm something dumb that just makes me mad I wasted my precious reading time on nothing. So rude Mr. King if you are going to be the king I need you to scare the pants off me, please, thanks

I‘m catching up on this tonight. Any one else watch it?

I‘m on episode 7 now.

And this adorable black cat pouch which will be perfect for traveling.

The coffee & James Baldwin bookmarks are a great size for smaller paperbacks (I hate using a large bookmark that is taller than the book), the hand will be so cute sticking out of a book, the floral reading set is pretty & calming and the Stephen King quote is one of my favorite bookish quotes! Axton loves little notepads to bring along places so that is👌#summerbookmarkswap

jpmcwisemorgan @KrystleTheBookSlayer I think you‘re right. I got it from Goodreads and it had vampire as a tag and that one has vampires right? 1y
KrystleTheBookSlayer @jpmcwisemorgan Yes it is! And I'm pretty sure that's the book that I read the quote in too because it would make sense. 1y

Working on a new page in my reading journal. It is my goal to one day finally read everything by one of my favorite authors. There are just so many (not to mention he keeps releasing new ones) & I am easily distracted by shinny new books.

dragondrool @BarbaraTheBibliophage If Stephen King were to write the novelization, yes. If someone else did, probably not, because the voice would feel off. And yes, I'm aware he isn't the writer for the screenplay. 1y
