Sarah Daltry's Top Ten Scariest Books she has read.
1. Deadly Game of Magic by Joan Lowery Nixon: Is this book scary? I
have no idea. When I was a kid, though, it was terrifying. It still
creeps me out even now. I'm sure if I reread it again, it would seem
silly, but I have never been so terrified. The ending is amazing (or
was when I was a kid.)
2. Ghost House Revenge by Claire McNally: Another read from my preteen
years, this book made me want to cry. There is one scene in
particular, with a heating vent, that made me put the book away for a
3. The Shining by Stephen King: What is there to say? This book is terrifying.
4. Pet Sematary by Stephen King: This book scared me so much that I
had to read it outside in the middle of the afternoon.
5. The Store by Bentley Little: Although this isn't really scary in
the traditional way, I love Bentley Little's satirical horror. This
one in particular will speak to anyone who lives in a small town and
has seen the big box stores take over.
6. Turn of the Screw by Henry James: A classic and not traditionally
scary, this story still speaks to the psychology of fear.
7. Blackstone Chronicles by John Saul: It's set in an abandoned mental
institution. And there was a video game. Enough said.
8. Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz: Amusement parks are creepy. Amusement
parks at night are creepier. Amusement parks at night run by goblins
are the creepiest.
9. Scavenger Hunt by Christopher Pike: I don't care. I know
Christopher Pike may be cheesy, but I love him. I have read every
single one of his books multiple times and I still love this book. I
will defend Christopher Pike books to the death - and this one is
freaky as hell. (And yes, I did grow up in the 1990's).
10. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield: This is a sad book and
its creepiness is more in the vein of Turn of the Screw, but it is
just eerie. The mood is phenomenal. Well crafted.
11. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs: This
is also another mood one. The photographs really add to the eeriness,
not to mention the whole abandoned island in the middle of the ocean.
12. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie: If you haven't read
this, why are you reading a list? Go read this. You're a fool. :)
