I don't think I've read any scary books, but Lovely bones creeped me out a little so I stopped reading! LOL

Some horror/ erotica story book I got at the library when I was fifteen or sixteen. I was expecting some sexy vampire stuff and maybe serial killer/ rape type stories, but it was WAY creepier and grosser and more disturbing. I only read like three or four stories out of it and couldn't stomach it. For me to still remember some of the stories out of there is a good indicator that it disturbed me to the core. I have a pretty strong stomach and can tolerate disturbing, gory, scary, intense, horrible; but this book was a whole new level of depravity and horror. Blech!

Now I steer clear of that particular mishmash of genres. *shudder

Maybe I wouldn't call this book "scary" as much as "disturbing" and "gross". I'm pretty hard to scare.

Some RL Stine used to creep me out when I was younger. I don't really read horror books anymore. I have way too much of an over active imagination lol

Thank you tasha_mae for the awesome siggy!

My scariest book would be It by Stephen King.

I just started reading a book called, "Too Late to say goodbye." by Ann Rule about a woman who was killed and her two boys found her... its not really scary... but I was bawling in the beginning because of the two boys 7 yrs and 5. and their father didnt come home to comfort them... ... My boys are 3 and 2... and it just hit home...

Thank you *Kiliki* for my gorgeous siggie!

There were two Stephen King short stories that meshed for me and freaked me out for about a month when I was 14. One was about a monster in the closet that killed this guys small children. The other was about a boy who's father drank some bad beer... and turned into the Blob type of thing. They meshed for me and I had HORRIBLE nightmares for about a month. I had to sleep with the lights and tv on and with the door open & hall light on. The closet door was closed and blocked of course

The movie for IT freaked me out a lot more than the book. Tim Curry = freaky.
