Akshay Raj Dharamkar (akshaydv) | 3 comments I haven't exactly read all of his books but I'm getting there and looking at your lists I kinda feel like a toddler. Well anyway, I just wanna share and so these are the books I think are the best(of the ones that I've read)

It
Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption
The Body
The Shining
Joyland (Definitely on the list)
Misery

(I absolutely hated Doctor Sleep, no idea why. Well, I haven't read many, have I? )


The Angry Lawn Gnome (mostlyharmlessreviews) The Talisman
Pet Sematary
'Salem's Lot
The Stand (I like both versions equally well; 1990 has grown on me)
The Shining
The Green Mile

Honorable mention: The Eyes of the Dragon. Loved it, but can't QUITE bring myself to class it as being among his best
