This week's question:
"What is your favorite spooky book (i.e. mystery/suspense, thriller, ghost story, etc.)?"
I had to think about this for a couple of minutes. My initial reaction was to say Stephen King's It, but then I realized I could pick just about any Stephen King book. I have read every book he has ever published and they are all spooky in some way. One of my favorites by Mr. King is a book called Bag of Bones, released in 1999. The story is very haunting, yet in a way, beautiful as well. I love this book. It kept me up at night, though.
I also enjoyed Gerald's Game, but it scared the crap out of me! I was reading it alone in the bedroom when I reached a particularly scary part. I had to put the book down and go sit in the family room with my husband, it spooked me so bad. And the thing is, there were no ghosts or monsters, or creepy clowns. This was very realistic and could literally happen to someone. I think that is why it scared me so badly! Put, this is still one of my favorites, because the psychology of it is so frightening.
Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee’s View and Alison at Alison Can Read. It is another way for bloggers to make new friends and find new blogs to follow.
This week's question (it's a tough one):
"If you could have characters from a particular book meet characters from a particular tv show and form an epic storyline, which ones would it be and why?"
This question really made me think! But I think I finally came up with an answer. I think I would like the characters from Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys to meet up with the characters from That 70's Show. Those McGowan boys need a good dose of Donna to whip them into shape, so maybe they will lay off of Megan a bit. Plus, that combination couldn't be anything but funny!
So jump in and say hi! Then jump over to either blog and post a link to your blog (be sure to follow the required steps!).
