All The Books, Movies, And TV Shows That Stephen King Recommended In 2019

Horror master Stephen King had recommended some of the best books he has read and the best movies and TV shows he watched last year and here's the list.

Stephen King is the royalty of the horror genre. If the genius behind the brilliant works such as "The Shining," "Cujo," "It," and many other masterpieces, recommends books, TV shows or movies that he consumes, we should not miss the opportunity to take advantage of his taste in media. For all we know, it might be the fuel that sets the engine in our imaginative brain running, just like his. King has never shied away from sharing his insights on becoming a successful writer and has even written an entire book about it.

In 2019, King made a lot of recommendations on Twitter of the books he read as well as the shows and movies he watched. Mashable made a list of every single recommendation he has made by compiling all his tweets. You can look at the compiled list here, but here are some of the recommendations he made category-wise. 


As an author himself, and a great one at that, King has recommended over 25 books and short stories. It comes as no surprise that the king of horror would include a lot of horror and thriller recommendations. He has even included his son, Joe Hill's work "Full Throttle" which has a father-son collaboration. Here are some of his book recommendations:












Over a dozen of King's books have been turned into movies such as the cult classics "Carrie" which got a 2013 reboot, "The Shining" directed by Stanley Kubrick "Cujo" and "The Shawshank Redemption" which is still considered to be one of the best movies of all time. In 2019, "It: Chapter Two" and " Doctor Sleep" were made into movies and King did not miss the opportunity to hype his own work, as it should be. 











TV Shows:

For a busy man, King sure has managed to watch a lot of TV shows. Binge-watching is one thing all of us seem to have in common with Stephen King himself. He has also watched a lot of shows across various streaming platforms and TV channels such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, CBS All Access, HBO, FX, and The CW. Here are a few of his TV show recommendations.
