The Books That Scare the Crap Out of Us


There’s nothing quite like a great scare. Whether it’s the anticipation of monsters under your bed or the freaky feeling of shadowy figures hiding just around a darkened corner, being scared is certainly an adrenaline rush we enjoy. What intensifies the thrill of a great scare for us is when it comes from our own imaginations while reading a book full of fright, tension and utter terror.

This week’s pick celebrates those great books that we had to read with one eye closed while biting our bottom lips and promising ourselves we’ll only read “one more page.” What about you, LitStackers? What books scare you the most? We want to hear from you! Tell us all about them in the comments.
