The 31 Days of Halloween event is nearing its end. This will be the final Book Blogger Hop: Halloween Edition for this month, hosted by Billy from Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.
This week's question:
What is your favorite horror novel and why?
I know I keep bringing this novel up, but it's only because it's my favorite: It by Stephen King. This is the perfect horror novel. The scary character is a clown, one of the biggest childhood fears (and the fear of many adults). What I really loved about this novel, aside from Pennywise the clown, was the bond that formed between the seven friends. Their dynamics were perfectly portrayed. I was, and maybe still am slightly, jealous of their closeness and wished I could have had friends like them when I was younger. Each one had a strength that the others didn't. The emotional roller coaster the reader goes through while reading It is exceptional. I love It.
I'm going to say Christine by Stephen King because it was the first horror novel I read, and the first Stephen King as well. He is the master!
