Hi there gorgeous people! Welcome to this year’s The Best Book I Ever Read, I can’t believe that this is the third year.
This feature was inspired by Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” where chefs and restaurant owners explain the best they’ve ever ate from a certain type of food. Each week we will feature a group of bloggers and other book lovers that will give you their choice of the Best Book they’ve ever read in a certain category. I hope you get a lot of recommendations and that you comment with your own recommendations 🙂
Today’s category is Horror!
Sorry that I don’t have a lot of recommendations for you this week, but horror is not a genre that everyone reads… Including me. I scared very easily and I never watch horror movies, but these are two books that surprised me in how good they both are. The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey is about a doctor in aberrant biology (aka monsters) and his helper, an orphan that has a love-hate relationship with him. Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry is a zombie dystopian with trully scary things going on.

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
I’ve been out of horror for a while, but picked it back up last year, so I don’t have a huge pool to pull from. This was a great book though. Hill really pulls you into his story. His story was not gruesome, but it was scary. You can see his father, Stephen King, in the writing, but he is his own writer.

Swerve by Vicki Pettersson
The descriptions, the pushing story, the thrill of not knowing what will happen next and being terrified to find out — I was amazed by all of this when reading this book. There were portions that I could. not. put. down.
