    Great list! I have heard loads about On Writing.

  2. I own the Wool series and haven’t picked it up yet! This makes me want to read it soon!

  3. Can you believe I still haven’t read Choke even though it feels like ages ago that you recommended it to me. That is happening this year since I loved Fight Club!

  4. The Art of Racing in the Rain is still on my wish list. I need to get to that soon! And I’ve never read a Chuck Palahniuk book….. that also needs to happen! Great list!
    Thanks again for participating 🙂

    Oh I love The Art of Racing in the Rain so much! I am due for a re-read. The Sanderson and Howey books are on my TBR list.

    I stumbled onto Wool the same way you did, because the first part was free. It was FANTASTIC! I read part 2 and liked it too, though not quite as much as the first one. I never continued reading. I should have added this to series I want to complete this year.

    I need to read something by Stephen King. The Shining has been on my tbr for a very long time.

      The Dark Tower series is very good. As well as his less supernatural books like Shawshank Redemption and Green Mile. Been heard all kinds of good things about the Bill Hodges trilogy, too.

    Ooh I really want to read Steelheart, great list, thanks for sharing 🙂

  9. Beware Of The Reader says:

    Oh God yes Joe! I loved The Art of Racing in the Rain and you just reminded me how much I loved it! I though writing from the dog’s POV was very smart and we had bouts of wisdom through the dog’s eyes. I really loved it so good choice!

    • J.W. Martin says:

      I just can’t believe how perfectly Stein was able to write from a dog’s perspective. There were so many times where I had to say, “Yeah, that’s probably how a dog would see it!”

      • Beware Of The Reader says:

        Yes exactly! I don’t know how he did it. The same can be said when an author can write from the other gender’s perspective. Truly write I mean. Or write from a kid’s POV. I know we’ve all been kids at some point but I forgot so many thigs already.

  10. Is Stephen King’s book on writing good? I’ve seen it around and have thought about reading it but am unsure. I love to write myself so I’m always on the lookout for good writing books

  11. Choke sounds awesome!

    Someone bought me The Art of Racing In The Rain for Christmas so I’ll definitely get round to reading that at some point this year 😀
