Haven't read a scary or spooky book in a while. It's been fantasy and sci fi for me for the past few months. :)

Nikolina said...

No, haven't read a scary book lately, not for a long time actually....

Sel said...

I haven't really read anything scary for a while, the last was Mara Dyer I guess... but I plan on stepping my horror game up this fall :)

Haven't read a scary book since I was a kid. Think it's high time I started picking up some scary books again. Thanks for the giveaway!

Lauren Ring said...

I read Slasher Girls & Monster Boys... the wolf-thing on the cover gave me nightmares!

Puscas Mircea said...

I read Ten by Gretchen McNeil recently . It's about some teenagers stuck at a house on an island , and then they start dying "accidentally" . It was very suspenseful , but I wouldn't say it was terrifying or anything :)

karin said...

I read Anna dressed in blood , it was scary because ghosts always creep me out

Judy Thomas said...

I am reading Mr Mercedes by Stephen King at the moment. It's about a serial killer and a retired cop.Good scary stuff :)

Constanza Riquelme said...

Stephen King

Cali Willette said...

Sara said...

The only scary book I love is Silence of the Lambs. I've read it many times but never seen the movie (too scared).

lynnsbeans said...

Haraiah said...

Well, I thought A Madness So Discreet is going to be a scary one but it wasn't, so no. Hoping to read a few this month though.

Elin Helmersson said...

I haven´t read any scary books lately.

Kims Pensieve said...

everything about the great tales of horror by hp lovecraft scares the heck out of me hahaha

Cindy Jameson said...

No, I have not read any scary books lately. I have been into more of books with murders in them. I used to read all of Stephen Kings books, he is a master of horror.

steph y said...

Lake Of Sins : Secrets In the Blood by L.S O'Dea. The premise behind the horrific class system, which I won't spoil, is tarrifing. The gore and paranormal beings is a wonderful blend.

Michele said...

I haven't read anything scary for a while...lots of murder, though.

Lee Todd said...

Alasdair by Ella Frank
they definitely aren't sparkly vampires!

Laura said...

I recently read "The Walls Around Us" and it wasn't necessarily scary as well as creepy. The twist at the end, although not my favorite, was creepy on so many levels...

Megan McDade said...

I don't read too many scary books but I have wanted to try a Ransom Riggs book as everyone says there only a little scary which is About all I can take LOL

Megan@ reading away the days

amy bowens said...

No I haven't in fact it has been awhile

Nicole Anaya said...

Yes I have. And what made it so scary was the fact that the descriptions in the book were so vivid that I could actually see myself in those situations

Judy said...

A couple of months ago I read The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. I think ghost stories are very scary and eerie.

Holly Letson said...

No, I have not.But, I would like to.

Emma A. said...

During the summer I read Nameless by Lili St. Crow which had some spooky elements to it.

Veronika Éles said...

Daughters Unto Devils was one that I really enjoyed, it had a dark atmosphere and some pretty spooky scenes that gave me the chills. Same goes for The Dead House, only it was a LOT better and dealt with mental illness among other things. The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly, while not the creepiest novel ever, definitely had an atmosphere that managed to creep me out, also THE FEELS. All three novels had some truly emotional scenes. Loved them! :D

sohamolina said...

The Shining-Room 237 was scary.

Thais Pampado said...

I read the graphic novel Through the Woods, it was really scary! The illustrations and colors were creepy and I loved it.

Book Attict said...

I recently read Knock Knock by S.P. Miskowski, it's a fantastically written psychological horror story....I absolutely loved it!

Jenna H said...

I haven't read a scary book lately but I would definitely set time aside if I had one!

Tia Dalley said...

Right now I am reading In A Dark, Dark Wood. It's not scary as much as it is tension filled and full of twists. I guess it is more suspense.

miki said...

i haven't read any scary book lately ( i'm not into "dark" horror" either) the last on ewas soul avenged by keri lake, everything is scary teh strory, teh atmosphere the characters... in fact it's get even darker and darker along teh book and teh series so i'm not sure i wioll manage to keep following it

bohochick03 said...

Sorry to say I haven't read any scary books. But I do have Rot and Ruin waiting for me on my shelf. Maybe I will crack it open in time for Halloween :) Thanks for the giveaway! Fingers crossed...

Kellypc said...

I haven't read any scary books lately, the last one I read was a book of short stories & some scared the crap outta me!

Mai Balaibo said...

The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall by Katie Alender. It's YA horror, but it's legit creepy, it's set on an asylum for troubled women.

Ryana Maryana said...

Zom-B by Darren Shan. He is my favorite author. So, don't be surprised that Master of Horror doesn't scary me at all X))

Ashfa said...

I read Shutter by Courtney Alameda recently and it was so scary I refused to stay sleep alone in my rooms for weeks.

Dario Z said...

No, haven't read scary books lately

Valentina B-v said...

Linda said...

My latest scary read was Karina Halle´s Dark House, she really catches the spookie, terrifying feelings in words =) Can´t wait to continue with the series.
Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Wednesday!

Stephanie Grant said...

I just finished Stephen King's IT and it terrified me because it's about a killer clown...nuff said lol!

Crystal Porter said...

It's been a long time since I've read a scary book. I enjoy them. Grew up reading a lot of Stephen King

tiago rosado said...

It seems like Stephen King is incredibly popular when it comes to creepy reads, but I have to agree - no one scares me like his novels do

Pam / Hey, Miss Adventures! said...

I haven't read anything scary lately...I'm too much of a coward. The last time I read something that scared me was Lost World...haha

meg1124 said...

I have not read any scary books lately. School has been keeping me from getting in the halloween spirit...However I do plan to read Miss Peregrines Halloween weekend.

My name in the rafflecopter is Meghan Hawk. Sorry I could change my name below.

Andrea said...

Stephen King's Doctor Sleep. I'm not finished it yet, but its scary just like the Shining was! (Andrea Amy)

fee roberts said...

I haven't read any scary books lately, though I am reading Stephen King's Finders Keepers. It's a lot different than his usual writing, so far. I'm really liking it.

Isa said...

I read, not a scary book, but one with an eerie atmosphere, it's The Thirteenth Tale. The characters were somewhat odd and creepy at times, I really enjoyed it. Thank you. :)

The Last Chapter said...

I read the The Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong and it was pretty spooky because the main character is a necromancer and she sees the dead and the way she describes what she see is creepy (in a good way!)

annerooo said...

I haven't read any scary book lately. The last scary book I read was Anna Dressed in Blood and that was about 2 years ago.

Stacy said...

I've read The Feedback Loop books 1 and 2 which were scary for the possibility of technology advancing as written about.

まいだ said...

Not really. "Scary books" aren't usually scary to me. In fact, neither are scary movies. But I do enjoy them regardless. I liked The Shining by Steven King :)

Melissa Noecker said...

I haven't read any scary books recently

Nikki LeRae said...

I have recently read Scary Stories to Tell In The Dark with the kids but nothing for me... Any suggestions?

Donna B said...

Jeffery Deaver's books always scares me lol. I'm reading The Kill Room right now, it's not something I'd read alone at night.

Jackie said...

I have a list of scary books in my blog post. check them out if you like . Thanks for visiting . Good luck!

Jackie said...

Jackie said...

HI Karin I thought it was scary too :p It could've been the red font but Anna was more horrifying in book two.

Jackie said...

I read that book ! That serial killer was sick wasn't he?

Jackie said...

I would like to read it or winning it would be nice.

Jackie said...

for some reason my blood pressure rose when I read them. :/ I have high blood pressure anyway but ya the pictures were creepy weird.

Jackie said...

good cause you need to :)

Jackie said...

these books must be a genre that I do not subscribe to cause I've never heard them. If they are scifi horror I don't like scifi.so...... oh well.

Ashley Rexrode said...

I haven't read any scary books lately. I just finished allegiant

Christy Maurer said...

I read Masque of the Red Death when it first came out. I tried to read the second but just couldn't get into it since it had been so long since I read the first. I'll have to try again. I haven't read any really scary ones lately though.

Sophia said...

Is this giveaway international?

Jackie said...

Yes , yes it is .

I just read 'Salem's Lot by Stephen King. It has many vampires in the book.

Jana B said...

I haven't read any scary books lately, but my favorite scary book is Stephen King's Pet Cemetery. Nothing creepier than a little kid trying to kill you. Thanks.

Maria Behar said...

I don't like to read very scary books, but I do enjoy paranormal romance and urban fantasy. Actually, I've just finished reading the first two books in the Vampire Academy series, and there WERE some pretty scary parts.....especially in the second one, "Frostbite". Rose Hathaway and her best friend, Moroi Princess Lissa Dragomir, meet some of the evil vampires in the series -- the Strigoi. Now THOSE vamps are REALLY scary!! So I had some uncomfortable moments there! However, I LOVE this series, so I will continue reading it for sure!! I have a thing for vamps, if they're not the Dracula type! Lol.

Thanks so much for the AWESOME giveaway!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! : )

Stacy said...

I haven't really read anything scary lately, but the last creepy book I read was Bones and All.

Diane Elizabeth said...

I haven't read any scary books recently, but my favorite is probablyThe Exorcist.

Heather B said...

I don't think I have read anything scary lately. Time to remedy that for sure!

Becca W said...

The Kind Worth Killing was definitely creepy-it had this overarching sense of foreboding from the very beginning that never let up.

Jaime Lester said...

I have read several recently... The Dead House which was great, but not as scary as I was hoping! The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall, which was good but not scary at all, The Diary of a Haunting which was just ridiculous, and not in a good way (for me), and now I am reading Daughters Unto Devils which is not scary at all, so far. I JUST WANT A SCARY BOOK, PEOPLE! HELP!

Enbrethiliel said...

I recently attempted Hostage to the Devil by Father Malachi Martin, which is about real-life exorcisms. The first two chapters were so scary that I stopped, had to sleep with the light on, and haven't picked the book up again since!

Thanks for the giveaway. =)

Melinda Dean said...

I haven't read a scary book lately but I am going to soon.

JAsmine said...

i didn't read any spooky reads in my life >< is mara dyer considered ? lol

Tara W said...

I haven't read a scary book in a long time. If my memory is correct, I think it was Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake.
Tara Woods

Kelley L said...

Stephen King's The Shining. He's really good at creating tension.

Diann Pustay said...

I am reading Sleepy Hollow, Rise Headless and Ride by Richard Gleaves. It is very good, nice and spooky. Just perfect for Halloween.
Thanks for the giveaway and the chance.

Dakota Palmer said...

Awesome giveaway. Thank you for the chance ♡

Deanne Patterson said...

The last scary book I read was Pet Semetary by Stephen King. I loved how it kept me on the edge of my seat not knowing what was going to happen next.

Miako J said...

I'm not currently reading anything scary and I haven't in a while, but, I still need to finish reading The Monstrumologist series so I should get back to that soon!

Michelle Willms said...

While I haven't read any scary books lately (sadly), I have read Monsterland by Michael Phillip Cash. It might be frightening to some. It is set in a world that includes a zombie virus, and where vampires and werewolves have been recognized as real. I think Cash could have gone much further with it than he did - maybe he plans to write a sequel or make a series out of it.

Katarzyna Z said...

I'm currently reading Donners of the Dead by Karina Halle, there should be zombies in it but so far I'm waiting for any to appear ;)

Lisa Mandina said...

The Diary of a Haunting was really good until the very end. Very creepy!

Sheila Staley said...

The last scary book I read was Dark Memories by Jeff Savage. It was about a ghost of a young boy that came back to haunt the kids (now adults) that left him in a cave to die when they were on a school field trip years earlier. It was an eery book full of tension. Don't read it when you're by yourself!

Debbie W. said...

I read The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong and it was scary because it involved a group of kids being held hostage

SiNn said...

I have to say scariest read ive read recently was Baad Dog by Sal Conte all i can say is technology and animals dont mix

wen budro said...

I think that the last scary book that I read was "It" by Stephen King. I enjoyed the scares.

jen7waters said...

I'm currently reading Blue Lily, LIly Blue by Maggie Stiefvater and there's a scene where a woman who's been in a coffin for hundreds of years gets up from her grave! it was pretty scary, SHE is pretty scary.

Janiera Eldridge said...
