Horror book suggestions - February 27th 2016, 10:42 PM

I am looking for good horror books. I'd be interested in good horror authors but that doesn't give me an idea of what books they have that are good.

I read Dean Koontz and have read some Stephen King. I actually prefer Dean Koontz though.

So, any suggestions would be great.

Hi Jenna!
So these suggestions are not books I've read firsthand. But I can tell you the process I used so it can give you some ideas for your search. I really like the website Goodread which I'll have linked in a few places for direct suggestions.
I looked up Dean Koontz on Goodread and you've mentioned you like his books but which ones have you read? and are you looking for a different author? I looked up a person's profile who had rated Dean Koontz's book The City as 5/5 and found that some books she's reading is Dracula and Other Horror Stories and The Complete Fiction

There are more books under Liz's profile.
Also, if you were to get an account, you can keep a record of books you've read/would like to read and you'd get suggestions generated based on that.

Darren Shan is cool horror author. I enjoyed his Demonata series, although I think those are supposed to be younger readers. I know he wrote The City Book Trilogy, which is for adult readers, but it might be hard to find those books :/

Re: Horror book suggestions - March 5th 2016, 02:24 AM

Thank you both.

I have a good reads account and use it a lot as of now but very few of my books are part of the horror genre so I don't get too many recommendations. And, a lot of the recommendations I get (outside of the horror genre) are young adult. But, I ended up finding some horror authors that interest me and I'll consider reading at some point.
