Things That Go Bump - Literature - 300

“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”

– Stephen King


Get your heart pumping through reading a horror novel.


1) Choose a novel from the horror genre. Please make sure that this is a novel that you find to be legitimately scary. How can you tell if it’s “legitimately” scary. Think about reading it in the dark late at night. If you find that idea (at least) a bit intimidating, you’ve got the right book.

2) Check out the book from you local library, buy it at your local bookstore or get it on Amazon.

3) Read the book! (Listening to the audio version is great too!)

4) Write a short book review and post it in the comments below. Include the title, author, and elements that you liked or disliked about the book.
