Celebrating Friday the 13th with My Favorite Stephen King Books and Movies

3 years ago

I need to call my dad. Not just because Father's Day is this weekend but also because I need to know if he's read Joyland and if he bought Mr. Mercedes. My father and I share a strong appreciation for Stephen King novels and movies. A very strong appreciation.

I finally made time to add Joyland to my TBR list for this month but, I can't decide if I want to mess with my TBR list and add Mr. Mercedes sooner rather than later. I'm going to rely on my dad to read it first and tell me if I need to drop everything and read it now.

Since it's Friday the 13 and a great time to watch a scary movie or read a creepy book, and since I'm thinking so much about my dad AND Stephen King right now, here's my personal list of favorite movies and books.

I bet your lists don't look exactly like mine -- tell me where you disagree. What are your favorites? And, are you reading Mr. Mercedes right now or are you holding off for awhile?
