Top Ten Tuesday: Our Most Horrible Horror Reads

A banner with the words The Top Ten Tuesday List on it.We’ve done a lot of positive lists here at Sci-Fi & Scary recently, especially with the year changing over. So, we decided to shake it up a bit. Here’s our top ten list of horrible horror reads. We’ve split it 5 and 5, and no, we’re not going to tell you why we didn’t like them. You’re just going to have to get the gist from a gif. No need to turn this into a b*tchfest, eh? (And just to be fair, we’re not going to pick on any writing newbies. These authors have all got at least two novels under their belts.)

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you courtesy of Broke and Bookish.

Just remember folks: Opinions are like anuses. Everyone’s got one.

  1. I love those reaction images! I haven’t read any of these books, but I’ve been thinking of picking up some Stephen King for the first time, and now I know a few to steer clear of.

    Great list! 🙂

    1. If I had to choose a King book to start out with I think it’d be The Shining or IT. Dolores Claiborne is great, too. Or The Green Mile. Definitely The Green Mile.

      Or his short story collections like Skeleton Crew, Night Shift, and Nightmares & Dreamscapes.

      Different Seasons had some great stories in it: The Shawshank Redemption, The Body (Stand by Me), Apt Pupil, The Breathing Method)
