    Books of Blood by Clive Barker had my heart racing by the first page! Crazy!

    Thanks for the giveaway =) Happy Halloween!

    Old scare would be the Shining by Stephen King, New would be ‘The Dead Path’ by Stephen M. Irwin. Loved the descriptive details in ‘The Dead Path’.

    LOL @Sena… have you read The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon? Abut 2/3 of the way through the audio book I was so spooked I turned all the lights on in my apartment.

    I think the scariest book I’ve read was IT by Stephen King. I read it when I was pretty young and used to have terrible nightmares about it.

    I do not scare. lol… I have not found a book yet that has scared me. I love Stephen King books and none of them have scared me at all… I guess I am a tough cookie. lol…

    I think it would be scary stories by Alvin Schwartz. I cannot think of any other book that freaked me out that much and still has left lingering images and phrases 20 years later.

    Umm..I don’t really get creeped out or scared by the books I read lol. Though I do enjoy a good horror book. But I’ve never had one give me the willies, or make me want to take a break from reading it, or curl up under the blankets and suck my thumb lol. However one that I’ve read that does tend to scare people is Stephen King’s It. I snuck that one from my mom’s room to read while I was still in elementary school, because I had liked the movie lol.

  8. Mary Ellen

    Amityville Horror by Jay Anson. When I was finished with it I had to call my husband from the bedroom to come get me in the living room and take me to bed. I was too afraid to walk down the hallway!

  9. Germaine Dulac

    The Forest of Hands and Teeth was pretty freaky because their was just no escape from the zombies. It was terrible–but great! Thanks for the giveaway!

    The Shining or Salem’s Lot. Those both scared me. The books were bad enough, but when I decided to watch the movies,they really did me in:)

    eeeeeep I can’t believe you’re giving this book away. I AM SO EXCITED, I’ve been coveting it for what seems like such a long time because of its cover design, subject matters, authors, everything!! Thank you so much for doing this!

    This is a short story but “The Human Chair” by Edogawa Ranpō is super creepy/unsettling.
