What’s the scariest book you’ve ever read?
I don’t really read scary books (or watch scary movies) because I don’t like being scared on purpose. I get scared accidentally plenty. There’s no need to exacerbate the fear!
The Man Who Was Thursday is subtitled “A Nightmare,” but it’s not the scary kind. I’m convinced it’s just the weird kind where nothing makes sense. That is also the only kind I ever have.
Looking through my Goodreads shelves, I realize that I did both read and see I Know What You Did Last Summer. The stories were very different, but they both left me unsettled. (See the aforementioned scary movie resolution.)
The Necromancer books were definitely unsettling, too, but they were so funny at the same time that I almost forgot about the scary parts. Reading them was like when I watched Shaun of the Dead and got caught up in the rom-com and forgot about the zom(bies).
Well, now that I look at it, I guess I have read some scary books after all. How about you?
