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??
What will you be posting during the fortnight?
My plans consist of:
- 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
