I’m not a big fan of horror. Weirdly, I liked it a lot more when I was younger, maybe because it seemed all the more outrageous and unlikely. But these days, as an adult who understands just how strange and scary this world actually is, horror stories are less than entertaining. I couldn’t even get through the whole book, What The Night Knows by Dean Koontz, for my book club. I had to stop reading it for a little while and watch Nick, Jr. or something to make myself feel better.
When I did read horror stories, two authors were my favorites. Stephen King and Christopher Pike. Granted, not all of their work are masterpieces, but these two stories below, Carrie and Remember Me are pretty great representations.
Carrie: To be invited to Prom Night by Tommy Ross is a dream come true for Carrie – the first step towards social acceptance by her high school colleagues.
But events will take a decidedly macabre turn on that horrifying and endless night as she is forced to exercise her terrible gift on the town that mocks and loathes her. (from Goodreads)
Remember Me: She won’t let them forget…Shari Cooper wakes up dead. The last thing she can remember is falling from a balcony during her friend’s party. Her death has been ruled a suicide, but Shari knows she was murdered. All of her closest friends are now suspects. As she tries to find her killer from the other side, she discovers her friends may not have been so loyal to her after all. Now, Shari is not just out for justice, she’s out for revenge….
