The only one I've read on the list is Pet Semetery, which I liked in book format. :) The film I was not so enthusiastic about. Happy TT!

On a limb with Claudia

What do you think draws you to Pet Sematary? It seems out of your usual genre. Do you like other Kings?

Great collection as well! I've enjoyed hearing your voice these last couple of weeks as well!


What a wonderful list of books. There's a few hear that I'd like to read. I have read and seen the movie Pet Sematary. What a scary read! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my place.


It is my suspicion that Stephen King is one of the few published novelists around today who will be read in coming centuries. He combines the two essentials - he describes his time perfectly, but his stories are timeless.

I've only read Pet Cemetary, but the last one looks interesting lol Happy T13!

Your library is so much more extensive than mine.


i really do want to read SK's Pet Sematary but the last book of his that i read really scared the hell out of me!!


That's quite a list. 1066 and All That looks like a good read among good reads.


'Flashman'! I love that book!
'Yes, Prime Minister' - also a fave.
'1066 and All That' and 'Roman Go Home' would be wonderful to read - I'm a big King Arthur fan, and the withdrawal of the Romans is the backdrop to the story of Arthur.


Well, Ive seen Pet Sematary more than 3 times. Does that count? You know, you have an awesome voice. Have you ever thought about doing audio books? Happy TT sunshine...I hope you have a great week.


I was trying to guess the theme before listening to you audio, but I couldn't figure it out.

You're a better reader than me!

Thanks for stopping by mine :)


great TT...and I read Pet Sementary...scared the bejesus out of


Never read Pet Semetary, and yet I usually like King.


Cool podcast widget, I will have to check it out.

I've missed out on all of these, but I really want to read Pet Sematary and 1066 and All That.

Here's mine (not very inspired, but...):

Alice Audrey

Hey, you don't have to worry about me. I always comment. I still love your voice BTW. You could be a voice actor.

Kealie Shay

1066 And All That, and The Penthouse look pretty good. I'll have to add them to my TBB list. Yet another great list, hon.


I'm surprised I haven't read Pet Semetary. I like all that scary stuff. I'm getting some new books this weekend, so I may just pick it up.


The most interesting conversationalists are readers, in my opinion. You must be fascinating to visit with! Thanks for dropping in at Miller Manor. It's been a long time since I went visiting TT's. Life seems to draw me away from my computer more than I'd like! Happy TT!


I used to reread books a lot more often. Now I have so many books in my to-be-read pile, it seems wasteful to reread. Sometimes I can't resist, though.

I've only read Pet Sematary, but I'm not a fan of King's short choppy sentences, so it's not one I'd read again.

Brenda ND

I read Pet Sematary a long time ago. I haven't read any of the others. :) Happy TT!


Only Pet Sematary here, too.

Roman Go Home sounds like one I might like.

Have you considered doing an all vodcast T-13? You have such a nice voice.


Hmmm, the podcast kept telling me "feed not found", but of your list, the only book I've read is Pet Semetary. I love the fact that King can truly scare you as you look at words typed onto a page.


Pet Sematary was a horribly scary book and the movie was as well. Poor Gage.


Pet Sematary! Great book! I really like Stephen King. Thanks for stopping by my TT :)


I haven't had time to read since becoming a mom, I mean I have read 100's of kids books but nothing really for me.. though I do enjoy some of the kids books.
Happy T13

Matthew James Didier

Have I ever lurked in the background in silence??? Is that possible???

As always, more than a few I see in my own bookshelf... "great minds"...

...and I'm in absolute agreement with you on Beiderbecke!

Nina Pierce

Nicholas, I'm not even going to pretend I heard of most of those authors, let alone those particular books. Huh, I always considered myself pretty well read. Happy T13!

Thea @ I'm a Drama Mama

I have never read a single one of these books!!

Lydia @ On The Verge

Thanks for stopping by. I like your list and love your accent!


I haven't read any of the books on your list. But they all sound fascinating! Thanks for stopping by my place. Take Care!!



oh i love your voice Nicholas, i could listen to it all day lol. great idea with the podcast.

and wow number 70 on Thursday Thirteen. You go!

Diana M

Your reading is far more diversified than mine. Although I haven't read it, Pet Semetary is the only title I recognized. I need to widen my library....Thanks for sharing..


Pet Semetery! So scary! It's one of the few on this list that I've heard of, though. Thanks for the great titles.


As always the King book is the only one I've read. I think I may have read it 4 or 5 times.

Cindy Swanson

Darn it...I wasn't able to listen to your podcast (feed not found.) Missed getting to hear your lovely British accent.:(

I would love to read the Peter Sellers book. I think he was one of the funniest actors would be interesting to learn about the real man.

Thanks so much for stopping by my TT! And yes, do read "Prey"...I found it riveting!

Eaton Bennett

Finally I've come visiting, you turn up at most of the TT 13 memes I visit, so I thought I had better take a look. Bix, Man and Legend, looks interesting. Pretty cool having a book that you can ask your own price for. 1066 and all that, might be interesting, as it is one of the few history dates I can remember and the reason for it. :)

Nicole Austin

Another interesting book list. Love Stephen King. As usual, he's the only one I've read on the list. LOL!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. It's good to be back to TT.

And thank you for this great list. I'm always looking for new authors - especially of mysteries. I think I'll be coming back to check out this list often until I've dipped into all your recommended reads.

Desiree - Dessays

Hey there! Happy TT.

I bet the Peter Sellers book is great.

The husband & I traveled to England a few years back for business so we spent a few days in London & just outside of London. We went to Bristol by way of train so we stayed at Bath for a number of days. We loved it but it was not enough time. Or nearly enough of the country.

Wylie Kinson

ACK - I couldn't see the podcast (kept saying 'unavailable' so tried to figure out the theme.
Didn't, couldn't :(


I'm too much of a chicken for Stephen King. Happy reading.

Eaton Bennett
