So many books by Stephen King are scary, like It. I also loved The Reapers are the Angels, but I don't know whether that would really classify as "scary", but more like "creepy".

I like Watchers by Dean Koontz. It's not terribly scary so it's just my speed. I've read it several times - I really like the dog character best.
Thanks,

I thought Stephen King's The Shining was really creepy, actually I think most of his books are creepy.

I do not have a favorite scary book. In fact, I don't think I've ever read a book that can be considered scary.

Soap Box in My Mind said...

I don't have any favorites that I've read in terms of scary, but the two authors I enjoy the most for that sort of thing are Anne Rice and Stephen King (I know...cliche' King!).

This book looks really interesting. Thank you for this opportunity. I'll keep my fingers crossed!!

Melanie L said...

I thought The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters was not too scary but kind of creepy. I enjoyed reading it. Also, I remember when I was a kid I loved reading books by R.L. Stine. Some of those were pretty scary.

Not so much a particular scary book, but a couple of scary writers--Dean Koontz and Barbara Michaels come to mind first.

cgclynsg0 at gmail dot com

Lynne's Somewhat Invented Life said...

I think Dean Koontz is my favorite. He has had a couple of characters that I hated to see no more of. Some of his stuff is too scary for me.

Deborah Wellenstein said...

The Shining by Stephen King. Thanks!

Carol M said...
