    “What is the scariest book you’ve read?” I read one of the Hannibal Lecter books years ago. But I’d never go see the movie!

    I don’t read many outright scary books, but both Invisible Monsters by Palahniuk and Coraline by Neil Gaiman are pretty creepy.

  3. Danielle Hammelef

    I generally don’t read scary books. I think the farthest I’ve gone outside of my comfort zone is to read The Graveyard Book.

  4. I don’t really read outright horror, so the scariest book I’ve ever read was probably The Screaming Staircase, by Jonathan Stroud. It’s an alt-history about ghost hunters – I was careful not to read too close to bedtime, but I really enjoyed it! It has a very creative setting and tense pacing.

    I’m reading There’s Someone Inside Your House right now and I’m not far but I can feel it’s gonna get pretty scary!

    I’ve read a lot of scaary books so this was a tough one. I decided to go with House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. Reading it is the literary equivalent of climbing Mount Everest. There is a lot going on. It starts out very slowly (you have to be patient) and then you will be entranced. There’s a sense of dread lingering always…leaking through the pages. There’s nothing more fearful than the unknown and the book is full of unknown, unexplained horrors. It’s weird layout and endless footnotes make it one of the most atmospheric horror books out there. The book is a maze, a frightening enigma…a dark door to a dreadful world.

    For outright scares I’d have to go with Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter series; much more atmospheric and powerful than the films as we are allowed glimpses into Lecter’s midset.

    Stephen King’s Cujo – scariest book I’ve read…so far. Lol
    My family dog was bit by a rabid raccoon. He literally went crazy and attacked me. It left me traumatized. Then, like an idiot, I read Cujo and watched the movie – never again!!!
    Thanks so much for The Hop!!!

    Everything’s Eventual by Stephen King. It’s a collection of short stories, Autopsy Room Four and The Road Virus Heads North actually gave me nightmares. XD

  10. Kym

    Hands down, one of the scariest YA books I’ve read is Diviners by Libba Bray. It had it’s funny moments, but anything that starts with a summoning ghosts is going to be terrifying… if done well.

    Also just about anything my Dean Koontz. Intensity has left me terrified of gas stations.

  11. Summer

    I don’t really read scary books, but a suspense/thriller type of book I read that I thought was really well done was Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas.

  12. Demi

    It’s a tie between Witgin These Walls by Ania Ahlborn and Follow You Home by Mark Edwards. Both books sent tingles down my spine and I couldn’t even bring myself to get up and pee in the bathroom. These books made my imagination run wild during the night 😂

  13. I don’t really do horror books! I get way too scared and well… my imagination makes it worse than the actual fear factor in the book itself. But I do find books like 1984 and The Handmaid’s Tale so creepy because well, it’s too close to reality…

  14. Uhunoma Aguebor

    The House on Hackman’s Hill by Joan Lowery Nixon was a pretty scary and creepy book to me! I read it when I was in the fifth grade and it freaked me out lol!

  15. Jan Lee

    Any book by Stephen King can be very scary. The Mr. Mercedes trilogy was great. I have a copy of all three books and will probably read all of them again closer to Halloween this year 🙂

  16. Penny Olson

    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz will bring back memories childhood sleepovers and campfires.

  17. Taasia

    The Diviners Series is absolutely horrifyingly creepy. I made the mistake of reading part of it at night. If you’re a chicken (like me), 10/10 would not recommend doing this.

  18. I don’t know about THE scariest book I’ve read, but for sure these books have scared me: The Diviners by Libba Bray, Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, and Slasher Girls & Monster Boys edited by April Genevieve Tucholke.
