Road Trip Wednesday(4)

"Road Trip Wednesday" is a 'Blog Carnival,' where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading- related question that begs to be answered.

This weeks question: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! What's your favorite scary book or movie?

My answer: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz, When a Stranger Calls, The Ring, and The Ring Two.

I just finished reading this book but it is definitely one of my favorite reads of this year and one of my favorite books. It had this really creepy/eerie feel to it and there were some seriously detailed gruesome scenes! My review will be posted later today so all of you can see why I love it so much! (:

2. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark was my all time favorite scary book to read when I was in elementary school! The stories were creepy but I feel like the pictures were what really made this book so scary. The illustrator, Stephen Gammell, has some serious talent!

  1. I've seen The Ring and The Ring 2 but I'm such a wimp! Too scared to watch most scary movies! However, Anna Dressed in Blood is on my TBR list

    1. I first watched them when I was like 11 and they FREAKED me out! Anna Dressed in Blood was amazing! (:

  2. Crazy! We both mention ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD and an Alvin Schwartz book in our RTW posts. :) I'm really enjoying ANNA so far (love the teen boy voice!), and am finding it not too scary, so that's good. As for horror movies like The Ring, I tend to steer clear. O.O

    1. LOL! That's too funny, I'm glad you're enjoying Anna so far!

  3. I keep seeing people talk about Anna Dressed in Blood - I guess I really need to go buy this one. Sounds great!

    Happy Halloween and Road Trip Wednesday!

    1. You definitely do!!!!! I loved it! Happy Halloween to you too! (:
