  7. My favorite horror read is Piercing by Ryu Murakami because this novel isn’t “boo” scary; it’s more like “set your teeth on edge for days and make you never want to be close to anyone for the rest of your life” scary.

  8. My favorite would have to be It by Stephen King. This was the very first Stephen King book I ever read and could not put it down. I remember when they made the movie I was so disappointed it wasn't as good as the book.

  69. The Sleepwalkers by J. Gabriel Gates. Its about a creepy town who is plagued by sleepwalking creepy white figures. All the younger men and women some even adolescents end up in the main town's asylum but the thing is the asylum has a connection to these creepy white sleepwalkers.

    Meanwhile it all has to do with some darker evil. Truly Horror but also Young Adult. Even though I think it is more for Adults as well. Read it about 1 or 2 years ago from Netgalley and thought it was a great Horror book.
