Spooky Saturday is a fun post with themes each Saturday!
Michelle’s Top Scary
I LOVE Scary books! There are so many that I have read and want to read. When I was younger my mom would take me to the bookstore and I was able to get any book I wanted, sometimes even 3. My go to books were the Point Horror Series and Christopher Pike. As a teen I would devour those and they were so scary. I still love the old school horror, I think it will always be my favorite.
So I figured I would give you my ten favorite horror books I read when I was a kid 😀
It wasn’t until I was older that I realized I read books from R.L. Stine because by the time I realized who he was I thought he was just the author for Goosebumps. I know I have read more but honestly it was such a long time ago I really can’t remember. I just remember reading a lot of them. I might have to go to my moms house and see if I still have these books since my mom tends to save everything. If you are looking for some fun spooky stories and you can find these books, I totally recommend them, You just might want to read with the lights on! 😉
Berls’s Top Scary Books
I think we’ve pretty well established this month that my idea of scary and other people’s idea do not necessarily line up. That being said, these are the books that I could think of that have given ME and enjoyable scare.
- Dracula by Bram Stoker. This was a 5 star read for me and it stayed up very late some nights biting my nails and turning the pages.
- I’ve grown to really enjoy Ruth Ware’s books and she’s become a go to suspense author for me. I’ve read and enjoyed:
- The Woman in Cabin 10
- The Death of Mrs. Westaway
- The Turn of the Key
- The Lying Game
- I almost forgot these books by Tracey Martin and they might not really count as suspense – but I was on the edge of my seat, so I’m counting them:
- Thief River Falls by Brian Freeman. I think scary is the wrong word, but a psychological suspense for sure.
- And my only horror books ever I was convinced to read and both were good enough. Scared the bejeezus out of me and I don’t see myself rereading EVER or looking for more by these authors. But if you like true Horror, they might be more your speed than the rest of my list.
- Cruelty by Edward Lorn
- Watchers by Dean Koontz
