“Five Favorite” is a feature on thewasofshall where I lay out my five favorite “x”. Sometimes they’re relevant to a season or holiday, mostly they’re not. It’s an all-around fun excuse to give my 100% amazingly awesome opinion. To see previous topics, click here.
I don’t like horror—like, really, really don’t. I find horror fascinating but it gives me nightmares so I’ve cut myself off. Sometimes, though, a really freakin’ creepy thing is the main antagonist of a book and, although it’s famous or well-known, I will not be reading it. In honor of Halloween, here is a list of five novels featuring a hell-no thing THAT I WILL NEVER, EVER READ. (So don’t ask me to.)
- Cujo by Stephen King
- It by Stephen King
- Jaws by Peter Benchley
- Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
- Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell, Jr.
