7 Newer Stephen King Books You Should Be Reading Right Now ...


Stephen King books are among my very favorites. I've been a fan since reading It when I was 11 – and yes, it scared the crap out of me enough that I paid much closer attention to the sinks and toilets in my house. While there have been books I haven't liked as much, they've been few and far between; King is actually responsible for many of my favorite novels. In recent years, he's gone into retirement more times than I can count – and funnily enough, he's written some of his best books during those periods, at least in my not so humble opinion. Don't believe it? Check out these newer Stephen King books and stick them on your reading list right now!

1. Under the Dome

Under the Dome

Forget about the show, which I myself can't really get into; Under the Dome is one of the best newer Stephen King books I've ever read. I've already reread it approximately five times, and it never gets old. The book is so much better than the show. It's urgent, gritty, and scary, plus real enough that I always take a look at the sky whenever I take a break from reading it and step outside. Barbie is a marvelous character, the humor is true to life, and the villains are exceptionally well rounded.
