You guys know enough about it by now. Awesome meme hosted by For What It's Worth and Midnyte Reader.
This week's question is,
Do you like to read scary books? Why or why not? If so, what is the scariest book you've ever read and why does it deserve that honor?
I don't get scared easily. I love watching horror and I haven't found too many novels that honestly creeped me out. There's something about the adrenaline rush, the mystery, when your heart is pounding fast and you're shivering that is just incredible. This is why I read- because I react to books, and no other genre can make the reader react like horror done well.
That being said, I haven't read many books I truly consider scary. Only one book comes to mind, and that's because I just found it fun and creepy. There were some goosebumps. The book is Bad Girls Don't Die by Kate Alender. For some reason I found that book incredibly creepy. If there are two things I find creepy (besides bugs & fish) it's dolls and little kids.
Those two things are supposed to be innocent (and I have some of both at my house) so the fact that they aren't, they way they're twisted always creeps me out. I never liked puppets or anything like ventriloquil figures either. Not even Sesame Street or the Muppets was okay for me when
I was a kid. That's partly why I found Bad Girls Don't Die so creepy.
I'll leave you with this stunning movie poster. That is one of the few things that honestly creep me out.
