Horror: The 100 Best Books
Horror: The 100 Best Books | Kim Newman, Stephen Jones
9 posts | 3 read
As Ramsey Campbell states in his foreward: Horror shows us sights we would ordinarily look away from or insights we might prefer not to have. Nowhere is this more evident than in this collection where the editors have invited top horror writers--Clive Barker, Stephen King, Ramsey Campbell, and a host of others--to nominate and write about their choices of best books.

I don't know if someone else posted about this, but there's a horror challenge with daily prompts for writers, and also daily prompts for whoever wanna post photos related to the given word. It's fun! If you wanna join, they are on Instagram @horrorprompts and you only participate when you feel like it. Just add #horrorlitchallenge #horrorprompt 😃 👍.
I'll be sharing my entries with you guys!!

Hey Litsy friends, you can add me on Goodreads if you want! 🙋‍♂️

I've read 95 books this year, with a goal of 110 books. I'm very happy with this, probably the most I've read in a year so far. How's your book reading goals going?

What's the best book you've read this year so far?

Pretty damn bold of this incredibly un-diverse book to give Harlan Ellison some space to shit on the entire genre of rap music.

khooliha I am owed more than 5 women, more than ZERO people of color, more than 1 queer person. We are all owed more. 3y

Between the early going of this book and all of "Is Heathcliff A Murderer?" I am absolutely parched for a modern book.

Very interested to see the picks in this book. A quick glance at the table of contents seems to reveal only 2 books by women, which is Not Good!

I love adding to my endless tbr, I love lists, but this was just... not diverse enough, not interesting enough, not personal enough. Also weirdly aggressive sometimes.

I am about to bail on this book, but I do want to say that I very much enjoyed Terry Pratchett's mini essay about The House of the Borderlands. It's how I was hoping the whole book would go.
