It is Halloween week, so it seems like I should do a post on my favorite Halloween books, but Halloween is not my favorite holiday. I have never been good at thinking of costumes, and it always snows – I hate snow! I will say my favorite creepy book right now is The Shining by Stephen King. So different from the movie, but so great! I also freak out about horror movies; I can read the books fine, but watching a movie I just can’t do. Case in point: I watched The Mothman Prophecies, in which the creepy spirit was represented by the color red. Later that night, I had to get up in the middle of the night, and saw the light on my fire alarm: red. I freaked out and jumped back in bed, waking up my husband!
Instead of creepy Halloween books, check out this post about the top 20 literary heroines. Nothing creepy about this list! Do you agree with those on the list? Who would you add?
