I read Mexican (not American) Gothic and liked it.

I've only read the Stephen King book. I'm not sure I want to tackle the others- looks like a great list, though!

I've read a couple of those. Pet Cemetary definitely traumatized me when I was like middle school age. Print and movie version.

Mexican Gothic, I think. I am reading that now. May daughter recommended it and she doesn’t like too scary of stories. We’ll see!

I have read quite a few on the list, but horror and thrillers are my favorite genre!

Stephen King was my favorite fiction and Ann Rule for non-fiction for years. Then I discovered Dean Koontz. Now I shuffle between them and love a chance for someone new.

I've read Intensity. It wasn't so much scary as suspenseful. It's one of my very favorite books, but I like Dean Koontz. Good always wins out in his books and I like that. I think I also read Heart-Shaped Box, but I really don't remember it...I like other books by Joe Hill though. He's Stephen King's son. I enjoyed Nos4a2 quite a bit.
