In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!
This week’s Book Blogger Hop question is:
“What is your favorite spooky book (i.e. mystery/suspense, thriller, ghost story, etc.)?”
I love a good spooky book! As I mostly read classics, I really love to find obscure books full of creepy stories. But my all time favourite spooky book is probably the most famous in the world. It is Dracula by Bram Stoker. Dracula has got to be the singular most evil and creepy villain I’ve ever read about. If all goes according to plan then I am going to be re-reading it once again for the season of Halloween.
Also, from my favourite genre, mystery, my favourite spooky tale is The Pale Horse by Agatha Christie. The book has a sinister tone to it and it works.
I have only read one AgathaC so will add that one, sounds good. I loved the beginning of Dracula but the letters from the other characters started to bore me, I need to pick it up to finish.
I love Agatha Christie! Hope you like The Pale Horse when you read it.
The epistolary nature of the narrative of Dracula can be a bit problematic but boring? I can never find Dracula boring.
Dracula is a great choice. I have never been able to find its unabridged paperback. And I’m not comfortable reading it online (that is, if it is really available).
I read The Pale Horse earlier this year. It did have a sinister tone to it but it bored me a little.
I have its unabridged Penguin edition of Dracula though I may soon need to find a new one because this one is starting to fall apart from being handled too much. It is available online but I agree with you about not wanting to read books online.
Christie almost never bores me. Too bad you didn’t like The Pale Horse. It’s my favourite non-series Agatha Christie book.
