HorrorOctober2014

I’m taking part in Horror October 2014, hosted by Oh, the Books!, so the next two weeks will be dedicated to all things creepy and spooky for the build up to Halloween! Today I’m taking part in the introduction posts.


Why have you joined Horror October?

I took part last year and it was a lot of fun, plus it’s always great to join in blogger events like this. You can meet new people, get some wonderful recommendations and find new blogs. Plus this way I can throw myself into one genre I don’t think I pay enough attention to, even though I enjoy it.


What experiences do you have with the genre?

Well um… I’m a bit of a wimp. I’m not a big one for horror films, or rather I don’t like gorey horror stuff. Psychological horror and thrillers are pretty cool. I’m more than happy reading horror books though! I can’t say I’ve had masses of experience with the genre, unlike our lovely hostess, but it’s definitely something I’m up for exploring! I was looking forward to taking a ride through the awesome haunted house at Leidens Ontzet at the beginning of the month, but I never got a chance. I mean, just look at it! I don’t think they could get many more cliches on the front, right??


ONE DAY MY FRIEND, ONE DAY.
ONE DAY MY FRIEND, ONE DAY.

What will you be posting during the fortnight?

My plans consist of:

  • reviews
  • a top ten
  • horror editions of Fantasy Friday (yes!), Museum of Literary Wonders, Turning Off The TV and possibly Prose & Pixels
  • my ‘to read’ list within the horror genre

SEARCHING FOR SCARED GIF TO FIND THIS WAS A BAD IDEA. BAD. IDEA.

  1. I am not taking part in Horror October as I am not much of a horror reader. Alhough I once noticed that Bitten by Kelley Armstrong is considered horro and I read all 3 book in the PSS Chronicles series by Ripley Patton so far which are clasified as Paranormal Thriller, but they aren’t really creepy. Or maybe I can stand horro better in books then I thought.
    I just would never think to categorize any of the books I read as horror and I don’t like the real scray stuff. I haven’t read a book that was really scray as far as I can remember. I am curious to see what you will be posting this month :).

    • Psychological stuff is pretty cool, but the gory stuff – nope, nope, nope. I definitely have plans to watch American Horror Story sometime, but not by myself and not at night…

  2. YOUR BLOG DESIGN HAS CHANGED AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL! IT IS AWESOME I LOVE IT. OK thats all I have to say about that.

    OooooOOOoooOOOo Horror October! I haven’t read any spooky reads in a while but I’ll be looking forward to all your posts!

    • Hehe thank you Valerie! πŸ˜€ It’s my special Sci-Fi Month theme but it’ll probably stick around for ages afterwards πŸ˜‰

    • I know, if I watch something like that then you can GUARANTEE I’ll be sleeping with the lights on – it doesn’t even have to be that scary!
