Exploring My Bookshelves (#35) – A Scary Book

Exploring My Bookshelves is a weekly meme created over here at Addlepates and Book Nerds, and co-hosted with Shannon @ For the Love of Words. For more info on how it works, have a look here

This week, Shannon wants to know about…


Your Thriller And Horror Books

Except, I am a complete coward, so, unsurprisingly, I don’t own any of these. My mum owns a few Stephen King books, but I haven’t read them and don’t plan to. Instead, I have books that I found scary (wuss that I am). These include Department 19 and the Poison Garden. I can’t even remember what it was about them, but when I look at them I get that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach…wpid-20151009_114441.jpg

There was also a book that I no longer own, and I cannot remember the name of it. These kids got stuck in a basement on their trip to the beach, they were locked in by their crazy person they were staying with. Does anyone have even the slightest idea what I’m talking about?

Are you a coward, or do you love horror? What are your plans for Halloween? 



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!

  1. Department 19 is awesome. I enjoyed the first sequel, and the third book wasn’t bad but I haven’t read the last two books yet. I like horror. But after years of reading and watching it, there isn’t much that scares me anymore–not sure if that is a good or bad thing.

  2. Excellent post! I have been wanting to participate in this for the last two weeks, but I didn’t have any books that fit the category the last two times. However, I have a ton of horror and thriller books; as they are one of my favorite genres. So I was able to participate. YAY!! I feel you, on the coward things. Even though I love horror and thrillers, I still get so scared. I startle very easy, so I don’t understand why I am addicted to the genre.
