Top Ten Tuesday: 10 things that scare you in books
Thank you The Broke and the Bookish for organizing the fun Top Ten Tuesday and for the meme!
October 27th Topic ~ Top 10 things that scare you in books!
Now if you know me I do not like scary books but I am going to give you my list of things I do like in books that scare me.
1. Snakes. Ok so the books I read this past year that had snakes and it freaked me out were Awakening by Shannon Duffy and Alive by Scott Sigler
2. Now Awakening also had clowns which completely freak me out. Awakening was an adrenaline fast paced read and I loved it.
3. Disease freaks me out and scares the crap out of me but I also find it fascinating. So one of my favorite series is After the Ending. This is an intense and edge of your seat read.
4. There were some intense and scary creatures outside the walls in Gates of Thread and Stone and Infinite.
5. There were some creatures in An Ember in the Ashes that scared me but also added a whole nother element to the story.
6. Vault of Dreamers was intense and scary in the fact that can you ever really trust people around you. This was a heart pounding psychological thriller and I loved it.
7. I found this book very creepy and intense but it had an old classic feel to it. Kind of like an even more intense Hitchcock but with a modern twist and a science fiction element.
8. I love a great mermaid tale and this one did not disappoint but these are meaner and more aggressive mermaids then the ones in most tales.
9. Need had me on the edge of my seat the entire time I read it and I never saw half of the things coming. It was a very intense read.
10. The Arum in the Lux series were freaky and intense alien life that I found the perfect element to balance the Lux.
