If you read my blog or follow me on Instagram you know that I’m an avid reader. I love reading and frequently post book reviews. In honor of my favorite month I’ve decided to post my top 5 favorite scary/suspenseful books.
1. The Taking – by Dean Koontz
I used to read a lot of Dean, but haven’t as much lately. I love his weird slant on everything and this book is my favorite of his. I literally couldn’t put this one down until I finished it. It’s a creepy end of days kind of book and I highly recommend it.
2. Sphere – by Michael Crichton
I love Michael Crichton and his books. I love the fact that you can learn so much from his extensive research. This book I read in high school and I’m a little fuzzy on all of the details these days, but I remember it scaring me while I was reading it.
3. Revenge Eleven Dark Tales – Yoko Ogawa
If you want to give yourself a good scare read this one at home alone on a dark and stormy night. I’m not going to give too much away on this one, but it’s really creepy.
4. Night Film – Marisha Pessl
I love this book. It’s so good and even though it’s long I think it ends with a great twist. Again it’s more creepy than scary, but so worth reading.
5. World War Z – Max Brooks
Spoiler alert this book is nothing like the movie. In a good way. This book already took a fear and twisted it into a full blown paranoia. SO SCARY!!! For all you zombie lovers? haters? this is the book for you!
Happy Halloween everyone!!!
