This isn’t a scary story, but halfway through this story, I literally had trouble sleeping thinking about the beast. Although, now that I’ve finished the book, the haunting human actions of betrayal and sacrifice are what stay with me more than any supernatural element.
Darren Shan really is the master of horror and while his books are short and entertaining, they are also scary. Zom-B was no exception (Although I think his Demonata books are the scariest of all!)
I loved these comic books and hope to try the TV show as well as finish the comic series in 2013. The story is a deep exploration of what it means to be human and the zombies are always terrifying!
A different kind of scary, but this book has so much suspense. It is set in a cruel world and I was constantly afraid for the main character and the young Duchess she served.
THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD. And it’s funny and deep and well-written. But it’s also about serial killers. And the end. OMG THE END!?!?!?!?!?! THE WORLD DOESN’T FEEL SAFE ANYMORE!
Another book not afraid of a high body-count, Anna Dressed In Blood is everything I wanted in a ghost story. Yes, there was romance, but Anna never stopped being bad ass. She scared me in the beginning, broke my heart, then scared me some more when I realized there were things worse than her in the world.
What were the scariest books you read this year??
