Ever since I was a young girl I had a fascination with scary things. I used to sneak into my brother's bedroom so I could secretly watch the scary movies that he rented. Only to switch them off every time things got too scary. I also remember times when friends stayed over. We watched scary movies at night oh we were so scared. Looking back I can laugh about it, but at that time we were primarily trying to stay brave. The music video of the song Thriller by Michael Jackson gave me nightmares for weeks and I still get the creeps whenever I hear that song or see it on television.
My fascination for scary movies expanded to scary stories. The first book I read in this genre was Christine from Stephen King. I actually really wanted Carrie but that book wasn’t available at the store and I refused to leave without a book from the master himself. I loved Christine so much that a new addiction was born.
Since then I've read many scary stories and some stay with me and some I forgot about. Nothing makes me happier than to sit back at the end of the day getting a good chill from something scary, whether it's a book, a movie or a television series. Zombies are my choice of ‘monsters’. I am addicted to The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead and most of the zombie movies out there. I've seen Night of the Living Dead hundreds of times (I'm not kidding) and I know every line of that movie.
To share some of the best writers with you I have selected a bundle of scary books for you. With the summer holidays coming up nothing is more relaxing than to curl up with a creepy read when the sun has gone down and to lose yourself in it. Every single one of these writers has really impressed me with the way they tell their story. If one of their books would ever make it to the big screen (and I really hope that's going to happen) I will be sitting front row.
The books in our bundle are: Taking on the Dead by Annie Walls, Called by Fire by Delwyn Jenkins, My Sister's Reaper by Dorothy Dreyer, In Darkness We Must Abide by Rhiannon Frater, The Requiem Red by Brynn Chapman and In the End by Tracey Ward. (Book one in this series Until the End from Tracey Ward is free on Amazon).
One winner will receive kindle copies of all the books. Good Luck!
