  1. Hey There Kristipetersenschoonover,
    Thanks for your thoughts, This is my list of the best horror novels I have ever been frightened by.

    Horror books must first be scary. Without the “fear factor”, a horror novel is just another story. All of the horror books I have listed here will make your skin crawl at some stage. Often many times throughout the book.

    The best horror fiction will take you to places you have never been. Give you experiences you have never known. Most importantly, the best horror novels will mislead you, surprise you, frighten you and then drag you screaming to a climax that leaves you shaken and satisfied.

    Horror novels, by their name, are designed to induce fear in the reader. But not only fear. A good horror novel will also move the emotions of the reader. The best horror novels will explore friendship, love, loyalty and courage. For a horror novel in which the reader does not care about the characters, or the characters do not care about each other, is just a flat book.

    The horror fiction I have listed here are the best of the best.

    Enjoy – and Fear The Dark!
    All the Best
    Leith Jones
