Well, it just dawned on me that today is Tuesday and I never posted yesterday – yea my week has been that crazy already… I am a little fried at the moment to write a post, so I thought I would share a blog post that I found a couple months ago. The post, 9 Books Scarier than any Horror Movie by Molly Horan, lists out the books that she believes are scarier than any movie.
Here is a link to the post: http://mashable.com/2013/10/14/scary-books/
Personally, I have only read 2 of the 9 books that she lists: The Haunting of Hill House and The Amityville Horror. I completely agree with Ms. Horan for listing these two, because these books creeped me out – way more than the movie version.
As I am always in the mood to expand the horror collection in my library, I would like to know if any of you – my loyal readers – have read any of the other 7 books that Ms. Horan has listed. I am extremely keen on books that you think are more terrifying than anything that Hollywood could conjure up.
So please, share your favorite book horrors in the comments section below!
P.S. I am a little disheartened to see that Susan Hill’s Woman in Black not appear on this list. That book had me terrified to be alone in my little appalachian house for weeks after reading it – a rarity indeed!
