Today I’m honored to have Cherie Reich stop by. Cherie recently published Once Upon A Nightmare, a collection of stories to get your heart pumping. I started reading it and let’s just say, I kept the lights.
5 Horror Books to Read After Once upon a Nightmare: A Collection
by Cherie Reich
- The Mist by Stephen King. This novella is sure to freak anyone out. Just don’t watch the movie or if you do, stop the movie when they’re driving around in the mist. The story’s real ending is so much better.
- Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. I loved the friendships formed through the story’s horrors. The first glimpse of Anna is also terrifying.
- Ten by Gretchen McNeil. This book was like reading a horror movie. It was awesome.
- The Doll by J.C. Martin. Dolls are creepy, and you’ll definitely find quite a few of them on the Island of Dolls in this short story.
- Desperation by Stephen King. This is the first full-length novel I read of King’s as a teen, and it completely scared me. It’s sleep-with-the-light-on horror.
What are your favorite horror books?
Disappearances every ten or so years make little impact on the small town of New Haven, Virginia. Hikers get lost. Hunters lose the trail. Even when a body is discovered, the inhabitants’ memories last about as long as the newspaper articles.
No one connects the cases. No one notices the disappearances go back beyond Civil War times. No one believes a legendary monster roams the forests in Southwestern Virginia.
I don’t either until the truck breaks down on an old mountain trail. Cell phones won’t work in this neck of the woods. It’s amazing how much a person can see by starlight alone. So what if we can’t feel our fingers or toes as we hike toward the main road. How many more miles left to go?
