TMST. Scary books

October 23rd: What are some of the scariest books you have ever read?
To be honest...check last week's post. I have read like 2 that was a bit scary that I remember. At least Goodreads tells me so.

But then again, this Katie Ruggle book I read a few weeks ago was scary. It was a romance, but there was someone looking into a window at a time and well it gave me chills. It does not have to be a scary book to be scary. It can be a romantic suspense and it can still be creepy. Yes creepy is scarier than scary at times.

October is so not my month. I need more scary! ...nah, I do not need more scary. I will stick to romance.

  8. I prefer romance to scary too, romantic suspense is about all the chills I need. Karen Rose writes them and they are quite chilling so I will go no further!

  9. I don't read the truly scary books, but I agree that a writer can build up suspense so that I'm scared or get chills quite easily.

  10. Scary books...hmm. Not much truly scares me, but I do love atmospheric books where I get to be creeped out!

  11. I honestly think scary stories are better as movies or short stories. Long novels are boring.

  12. I love scary. I've been watching horror movies since I was like 10. Then I started reading Stephen King at like 13. I do go in phases where I read/watch more and then it falls off for a while.
