Currently reading, and really enjoying, I Am Legend by Richard Matheson.

And good lord was it difficult to get a copy without Will Smith on the cover.
My debut novel 'Life Eternal' is now available to buy on Amazon in both paperback and kindle.

Please search 'Aaron J Booth' on Amazon to find the product.

The Shadow of The Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafon
It's not a book, it's a magic spell.

One of my all time favorite books! Currently reading the Abhorsen series by Garth Nix...first real venture into fantasy and thoroughly enjoying them all.

((Is 'Under the Dome' good? I've been considering reading it, but I'm not one for super scary like 'It'...

It's good, but I wouldn't say that it's too scary. I mean it's not suitable for kids but it's not exactly scary.

I agree to that. But...it will make you wonder about your neighbors.  Just a warning.

Are any of Stephen King's books scary though? I'm a massive fan, but most of the stuff of his tends to be just a little weird. Funnily enough, does anyone here get properly scared by books, because the novel can never get to me like a film can, for instance.

Anyway, currently reading "The Lies of Locke Lamora" by Scott Lynch and "God is not Great" by Chris Hitchens. Both are fantastic.

You poor thing, being scared by a book is way more intense than being scared by a film.

Yes I can imagine, because you tend to get much more involved in books. My friend said Blatty's "The Exorcist" scared the hell out of him when he read it but again it didn't do anything for me. I vaguely remember being scared by Herbert's "The Rats" when I was about 13, but nothing since. Can anyone recommmend a really scary book?!
