This week’s topic:
Top Ten Scariest Books! 

  1. The Shining by Stephen King: It’s King… need I say more?
  2. The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris: I loved all of these books but they definitely gave me the heeby jeebies!
  3. The Short Stories of Edgar Allan Poe: He was quite the tortured fellow but very good at his craft.
  4. Red Dragon by Thomas Harris: Great movies too.
  5. It by Stephen King: Not to be read when you’re home alone late at night!
  6. Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice: Great book and was before Rice got too weird.

I couldn’t find 10 because I’m not a big horror book reader so here are a few movies based on books that I have seen to top off the list:

  1. The Exorcist directed by William Friedkin (book by William Petter Blattery)
  2. American Psycho directed by Marry Harron (book by Brett Easton Ellis)
  3. Jaws directed by Steven Spielberg (book by Peter Benchley)
  4. Dracula directed by Francis Ford Coppola (book by Bram Stoker)

  1. Nice list. Poe’s The Raven was on my list. I almost included Interview with a Vampire too. I think Rice and King will be on a lot of people’s lists.

  2. Yeah I don’t read scary books at ALL. I’ve done Dracula and Frankenstein and those types, but that’s all.

    And Poe never really scared me… more just disturbed me, ha.

  3. I like your list. We have only a couple of the same books on our lists, but I have read some of your other choices and I think they are well chosen.

  4. Loni — King and Rice are pretty big names. Probably one of the reason why I’ve actually read their books!

    Straylights — It depends on how sharp your mental images are while you’re reading! Instead of seeing the creepiness you get to read about it in vivid detail.

    Sarah — I agree. Poe was tormented. He’s more appalling type horror than gory.

    Bibliophile — Thanks! I’m on my way to check out your list.

  5. I totally agree with Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon. I love both books but they are freaky as heck! I will never, ever be able to read It because I want to be able to sleep again!

    Good list!
