  1. Glad to see you enjoyed On Writing! That’s my favorite Stephen King book, personally. :3 I’m so far behind on his books, and I really need to catch up at some point. I’ve been wanting to read 11/23/63 because I’ve heard it’s really good, and I’m hoping to read The Outsider for one of my Halloween reads, if my hold ever comes through. I’ll be interested to see what you think about his books as you read them. 🙂

    Here’s my WWW post.

    • Believe it or not, before this month, I have only read Stephen King’s novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. I made him my author of the month, so I would finally read more of his work. I figured the memoir, a novella, and a couple of his classics would be a great introduction for me, though they are intense and a bit more violent than I expected. I’ve heard good things about 11/23/63.

      • I believe it. To be honest, I’ve only read a handful of his books myself, even though I own a whole slew of them (I was given someone’s Stephen King collection).

        That’s why I’m so hesitant to pick up his stuff, because it’s so hit or miss for me. I either love it or I hate it, basically, and I’m not a fan of a lot of swearing and violence. I did enjoy ‘Salem’s Lot, though, way back when I read it, and I’ve been meaning to read The Green Mile, because I loved the movie and everyone says the book is even better.

      • So far I feel a bit less appalled by the violence in Christine only because it is an object being violent not a human being, though I am only halfway through the book. Pretty sweet that you inherited someone’s SK collection! 🙂

      • I inherited their Anne Rice collection, too, and I’m still working my way through that, slowly but surely. xD

        Yeah, it’s a little easier when it’s an inanimate object, for some reason lol. I hope you enjoy it! I’ve heard good things about that one.

      • I haven’t read Anne Rice either. I think I just avoided anything that could be classified “horror” for so long and am now trying it out. So far I find that I am better with Stephen King’s books when they have a narrator, or maybe I just enjoy when there is at least one likable character. lol

      • Is Anne Rice horror? I don’t even know what genre it is. xD That’s bad. I’ve really enjoyed whatever books I’ve read so far from the Vampire Chronicles, though.

        I mean, that’s fair. It’s really, really hard to find likable characters in his books, in my opinion. I tried to pick up a short story collection of his not too long ago, and I set it aside for now for that very reason. Everyone was just awful lol.
