Salem's Lot for me as well, though The Stand is wonderful.

I like the Long Walk a lot. When people say 'The Hunger Games' is just 'That Japanese thing that bores me rigid' I always reply 'No, it's the Long Walk with the brain removed and a happy ending'

The Running Man reads as slightly juvenile. Good but not great.

Salems lot is the best King novel by far. The Stand was ok but I preferred The Shining.
I really liked the Mist as well.
