What with yesterday being Halloween, and all . . . do you read horror? Stories of things that go bump in the night and keep you from sleeping?
I thought about asking you about whether you were participating in NaNoWriMo, but I asked that last year. Although . . . if you want to answer that one, too, please feel free to go ahead and do both, or either, your choice!
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
Well, since I was involved in the RIP Challenge, I'd have to say Yes. Although I prefer psychological thrillers to blood and gore. There are so many sub-genres within horror. There is the Stephen King/Dean Koontz style horror that's in your face or the subtle style of Shirley Jackson. One book that scared the pants off me was The Handmaid's Tale. Not really horror, more a dystopian novel, but horrifying, at least to me. I think everyone has their own definition of horror. Personally, I liked a good scare every once in a while.
