At Book Riot, another of those little quizzes: Based on your taste in horror movies, what scary book might suit you?
I don’t really like horror movies much (or horror novels), but I do like quizzes, so sure, why not?
One of my answers was chosen completely at random. “What horror movie from 2018 have you liked best so far?” Um, haven’t seen any movies of any kind in 2018, so, who knows?
However, the suggestion I got at the end actually sounds pretty interesting: The Hunger by Alma Katsu, which blends a historical novel about the Donner party with a supernatural explanation of what happened.
As members of the group begin to disappear, the survivors start to wonder if there really is something disturbing, and hungry, waiting for them in the mountains…and whether the evil that has unfolded around them may have in fact been growing within them all along.
Probably won’t read it because, you know, horror. But on the other hand, historical horror does strike me as more inviting than many other kinds of horror.
Whether you pick up a horror novel or not tonight, happy Halloween!
