Boyfriend's dad lent me two of his favourite books of Clive Barker's short stories. So naturally I jumped in, the first book has obviously been well loved and shows signs of being read again and again. So high hopes of some big scares within these pages!

Hell House | Richard Matheson

These made me #sleepwiththelightson
I just read Hell House last year. It creeped me out! That was a believable ghost story (for the most part). Realistically scary!
At twelve I couldn't finish the Shining. I'm hoping to try again.
As a tween I totally believed the Amityville Horror was true (of course I believed in Bigfoot and Nessie too).

I still can't walk by a sewer grate thanks to King.

Exorcist. There are no words.

#splashintosummerreads day 28 #sleepwiththelightson it's quite difficult for a book to scare me but there was something about the raggedy man that creeped me the heck out and The Shining was was probably the creepiest book I've ever read😰

I first read this in 5th grade and have read it several times since. Every time I'm tempted to #SleepWithTheLightsOn. #SplashIntoSummerReads

I read this one summer when I was home from college. Mom's copy has a cover that gave nothing away (this one's from Google) but she told me not to read it at night especially if I was home alone. But it starts so innocuously that I forgot her warning and had to #sleepwiththelightson! #splashintosummerreads @Tiffy_Reads

This made me #SleepWithTheLightsOn. I read this as a teen, when I lived in a house that my mom and I fully believed was haunted. Strange stuff happened there, and at night there was always a strong sensation of a presence in the upstairs hall that made the hair stand up on the back of your neck. I wouldn't read this book until me and my cat were in bed for the night with the door shut and locked. #SlashIntoSummerReads @Tiffy_Reads

AmyG I loved this boook. Read it when t came out. Horror was a favorite. 2y
JessClark78 @batsy Horror has been one of my favorite genres for years. I did have a lot of vivid nightmares when I lived in that house. 2y
kalinichta I just read this book a few years ago, and the writing style struck me as tabloid-style sensationalism - and either despite that or because of it, it was a fun read. I saw the movie when I was a kid, and I still give side-eye to houses with those fan-shaped windows. 2y

The Surgeon | Tess Gerritsen

This is one I bailed on a couple years ago, simply because it freaked me out. A serial killer who breaks into the homes of single women and pretty much butchers them. Hit a little too close to home. #SleepWiththeLightsOn #SplashIntoSummerReads

I #SleepWithTheLightsOn most nights. Not because I'm scared of the monsters, I just tend to fall asleep reading.

I don't actually care why I shouldn't do it.
