The Bill Hodges Trilogy should be read in order. So should The DT books. And Shining before Dr. Sleep. then its kind of interesting to read the Castle Rock novels in order; Dead Zone, Cujo, Dark Half and Needful Things. Its not necessary though. You could do the same with the Derry novels starting with IT, Insomnia, Bag of Bones, Dreamcatcher. A fun thing but not necessary at all. But basically you can just skip around witthout missing anything vital.
