'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Q: What book do you think would make a great Halloween movie? Please explain in graphic detail of goriness...

The Little StrangerGreat question and so many options! Any of Kelley Armstrong or J. R. Ward books would do the trick, they have the perfect balance of supernatural, gore and sex which would make for an excellent Halloween movie BUT I think I may have to go with Sarah Waters; The Little Stranger. It's a Neo-Victorian text which is one of the few that full on gave me the shivers! For the text synopsis click here. The uncanniness and uneasiness which Water's weaves throughout the novel (is it haunted? Is it psychological? Who?) would be the perfect film adaptation to curl up with at Halloween!

  5. I hadn't heard of this one yet, but it sounds like more of a suspense book (which I find easier to handle than pure horror -- I about peed myself when I read Stephen King's 'Misery'). I'm adding this to the TBR.
