I've always been a Stephen King fan, and growing up I watched all his movies I could get my hands on. I started reading some of his novels around fifth grade, but have barely scratched the surface. This post compiles a list of his novels and novellas and I plan to continually update this as I purchase and/or read them. You can always come back here for updates on my progress, or use this as a checklist for yourself.
