Top Ten Tuesday is a fun meme hosted by the great Broke and Bookish. This week it is a Halloween Themed Choose Your Own Topic. I have chosen ten books that were supposed to be scary but were not.
All these books were supposed to give me chills, or be creepy, scary and possibly cause me to look behind quickly, is there someone there, watching me? Instead the were boring and not the least bit scary, bordering on dull and not suspenseful. Now some of these might have had a few scary scenes, but not enough for me to still REALLY like the book.
Now this is just MY opinion, but I have a pretty high standard when it comes to ghost stories and horror novels. The Haunting of Hill House and The Shining are two of my favorites. If I can still read you, alone, with the lights dimmed you are not scary enough.
