Happy Halloween! Do you like to read scary books? Why or why not? If so, what is the scariest book you ever read and why does it deserve that honor?
You know, I DO love to be scared. HUGE fan of scary movies and haunted houses. I love the adrenaline rush of it all. I like horror fiction but find that I don’t read it too often. I think I prefer it in movie form. I find I like the more psychologically terrorizing book than say, a slasher murder mystery or something. I LOVE gore but it doesn’t necessarily scare me. Psychological thrillers or demonic possessions books and movies are my favorites, and they are the ones to freak me out the most. Books like Bedbugs and The Marbury Lens rock in the psychological thriller department. Then you have the subtle, malevolent evil, like The Diviners, that creeps up your spine and whispers sweet terror in your ears.
Sadly, I don’t think I have a favorite. It would probably take the scariest book I’ve ever read, but that book is going nowhere near my favorites. LOL. Fuck you, Pennywise!
Bonus question! Just for fun – have you ever dressed as a literary character for Halloween? Brave enough to show a photo if you have one?
