31 Days of Horror: Day 23-- A Bevy of Best Lists

One of the best things about this time of year is that it is the only time of year that everyone and their sister [uncle, cousin, step brother's, best friend’s girlfriend, etc...] is out there posting their horror “best lists.”

Of course I love that I am getting an assist in helping you help horror readers, but there is a larger reason why I love this.  What is "horror" is such a personal thing.  What scares one person may not make another feel any terror. The more people we have compiling lists of what they find to be the "scariest" or "best" horror books, the more readers we can help.

The more people we have compiling their “best” horror lists, the more voices we have in the conversation, the more readers we can help. When we all add our voices of what we love more about horror, we represent a wider range of readers.

So today, I am helping with two lists my husband found for me from one of his favorite sources for book [actually all pop culture] coverage-- Paste Magazine:

Almost all of the books on the second lists can be found in my book or here on the blog, so if a title looks interesting to you, use the search bar in the top right of the blog to find out more. 

If you have a great list you found or made, please leave the link in the comments. Let’s all work together to help every reader.
