In celebration of the 50th birthday of Stephen King's first novel, "Carrie," NPR polled its readers on their favorite King books. Here's what they chose. Which is your top pick? Tell us in the comments if there's a gem that didn't make the cut.

@CultureDesk @stephenkingjourney @bookstodon From the given options I would have chosen the dark tower series. But actually my favorite is Pet Sematary and Desperation

@CultureDesk @stephenkingjourney @bookstodon The Little Gods really freaked me out 😅

Adam Nevill was the reason I bought a Kindle years ago because a book I had ordered was taking forever to ship so I decided to get it instantly in the Kindle app and a kindle to go with it. My review of The House of Small Shadows is posted at https://wellwortharead.blogspot.com/2024/01/the-house-of-small-shadows-by-adam.html @bookstodon @horrorbooks

📽️ What's a horror movie that you feel is so: striking, unique, disturbing, profound, &/or beautiful that it transcends to the level of ART?
(Not for just a scene, or moments, or even a performance, but for the ENTIRE film.)

Four that immediately occurred to me:

The Shining
The Devils
The Wolf House
There Will Be Blood

I can think of more but I'm curious what YOU all think...

I have to go eat & do stuff but I'll be back on later to see what you all said!

@stina_marie @horror I saw it in an experimental cinema once. There is also a book on which the film is based (written by Lautreamont)

BEFORE YOU WAKE and BEFORE YOU SLEEP by Adam Nevill are FREE on Kindle right now. Regular Kindle, not unlimited or anything. Just an FYI if you want some free spooky tales by a really good author. (Six stories in total.) 🤘🏼

@stina_marie @horrorbooks @horror Thank you! In Germany, only Before you wake is down to 0,00€, but the other one is just 0,99€. Great news 🥰
Btw. I am currently reading his The Ritual. I really like Adam Nevill.

LOL Yet another reason why I am well aware that I shouldn't have (and have never wanted, ftr) children. I think this is HILARIOUS 😂

@bookstodon Now that it's October, let's do a Five Fave Modern Horror book list.

My contemporary spooky reads top five (in no particular order):

  1. You Should Have Left, Daniel Kehlmann

  2. A Head Full of Ghosts, Paul Tremblay

  3. Experimental Film, Gemma Files

  4. The Croning, Laird Barron

  5. Revival, Stephen King

This idea was @kimlockhartga's & I think it's a great one. Share your faves!

@stina_marie @kimlockhartga @horrorbooks Nice idea 🥰

Mark Z. Danielewski: House of Leaves
Kealan Patrick Burke: Seelenhandel (Milestone #1)
Chuck Palahniuk: Haunted
Graham Masterton: Death Trance
Matthew Stokoe: Cows

karin_jacob ,
@karin_jacob@literatur.social avatar

@stina_marie @kimlockhartga @horrorbooks I have read both of them but like House of Leaves a lot more due to the many small graphic oddities in the book. Also, I like the movie for You should have left better than the book. But yes, both of them are great.

@stina_marie @horror The St. Francisville Experiment. I had to keep the lights on after I saw this 🙈

@karin_jacob@literatur.social avatar

@stina_marie @horror The movie might not be so great, but it actually scared the shit out of me 😅

@stina_marie @horror 😁 Don’t blame me when you sit at the sofa with feet up and lights on 😂
