Road Trip Wednesday: Scary Books & Movies

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 Week’s Topic: Halloween! What’s your favorite scary book or movie?

I don’t do scary. Nope. Not at all.

The last scary books I read?

I think I was in junior high. Maybe even elementary school. And even though that was ages ago, looking them up on Amazon and seeing the book covers again sent chills down my spine and I got goosebumps. For realz.

The last scary movie I watched?  What Lies Beneath, which I dragged my husband to see with me in theatres, because it starred Harrison Ford. Yeah…never again.  *shudders*
It’s kind of ironic given that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  The things I really like about Halloween are the pumpkins (carving and eating), the costumes, walking around the neighborhood in the dark, the crisp fall air.

And the candy. Definitely the candy.

    I tend to agree–I like the more fun aspects of Halloween and not so much the creepy ones. I’m not a fan of horror, generally speaking. The more realistic a horror movie is, the less I’m likely to see it. Anything that involves crazy serial killers is not my thing because there are actually serial killers in real life and that’s anything but entertaining.

    I LOVE Harrison Ford, but I’ve never seen that movie. I don’t really like to watch the scary movies, either. I prefer cute, less-scary Halloween fun.
