Though typically my preferred genre to read is fantasy, the more macabre side of me delights in a good horror novel. But really, isn't horror merely darker, more twisted fantasy? Here I have gathered a few of my favorite horror titles, with my cat Bubbles looming over them.
Clearly, I have a weakness for vampire horror, and both Salem's Lot and The Historian were two books that had my pulse racing by the end.. the creepiness was a slow, deliberate build that was quite effective in keeping me up until the wee hours of the night, unable to shut off my lights.
Let the Right One In has been made into two films, but I recommend the atmospheric Swedish version.. don't let anyone ruin the ending for you; it's a shocker.
