I have a confession….I don’t read scary books….I read nothing even REMOTELY scary….for me there is nothing fun about turning off the lights, trying to sleep and jumping at every noise I hear waiting for the boogey man to get me. My husband…the total opposite. He loves anything scary, horror, gruesome or terrifying. He gobbles up horror books & movies. This is not to say they don’t scare him, because I for a fact know they do because he always moves the bat a bit closer to the bed after he watches a horror movie, but yet he still keeps reading/watching them.
So in having a discussion the other day, I asked would he help me out with a Halloween post on Horror books for our followers who do like the scary genre and he jumped at it….funny how he could care less about my romance books, but ask about Stephen King and the man lights up! So, below are the Five Scariest books he has ever read and his thoughts on them. If you, like my husband, love to read anything that terrifies you….try some of these out if you haven’t read them already. And remember, its OK to sleep with the nightlight on!
Nina and her Horror Book Loving Husband
Terrifying but lost me at the end. Honestly, I don’t remember a whole lot about the book other than it scared the shit out of me.

As a Father, this story was frightening in a more cerebral way. The horror of not being able to protect your child from the threats of the world about did me in.
