Five Favorite: Creature Features

“Five Favorite” is a feature on thewasofshall where I lay out my five favorite “x”. Sometimes they’re relevant to a season or holiday, mostly they’re not. It’s an all-around fun excuse to give my 100% amazingly awesome opinion. To see previous (and future) topics, click here. To participate, scroll all the way down.

I don’t like horror – like, really, really don’t. I find horror fascinating but it gives me nightmares so I’ve cut myself off. Sometimes, though, a really freakin’ creepy thing is the main antagonist of a book and, although it’s famous or well-known, I will not be reading it. In honor of Halloween, here is a list of five novels featuring a hell-no thing THAT I WILL NEVER, EVER READ. (So don’t ask me to.)


Cujo by Stephen King

ItIt by Stephen King

JawsJaws by Peter Benchley

JurassicParkJurassic Park by Michael Crichton
