Dark Eden: BLOG TOUR! Top Five Scariest Books!

Welcome to the official Dark Eden blog tour!
Halloween is just around the corner and to celebrate the publication of Dark Eden, available everywhere November 1st, this month author Patrick Carman will be visiting blogs to share spooky guest posts and sneak peeks from his brand new book and app.

Today on the blog Patrick Carmen will be sharing with us his
Top Five Scariest Books!
1. Frankenstein - I'm completely nuts for this book.

2. Edgar Allen Poe - He's not a book, but he is a category. No one creates chilling atmosphere like Poe. He kills.

3. The Turn of the Screw - I love the set up, the unreliable narrator, and the timeless sense of doom.

4. The Stand - This book unnerved me for weeks. It blew me away.

5. Salem's Lot - I was way too young to be reading this book when I did, but I loved it all the same.

That's a great list of books, Patrick! I will definitely keep these in mind for my Halloween Reads list!

  1. I'm not really big on scary movies, books or tv shows. I've only read one Steven King novel in my life, and that was during high school.

  2. Oh awesome. I love scary books and movies. But then I regret them when I can't sleep haha. I got this one on my reader and looking forward to starting it.

  3. I have read so many on this list. I went through a total scary book phase in high school. I read so much Stephen King back in highschool.

    Dark Eden sounds awesome. I am going to have to check it out!

  4. Thank you for taking a look at DARK EDEN! And it's really not a super scary book - more like Shutter Island, with teens. And a crazy twist ending, which I always love. Read on! Patrick Carman (DARK EDEN author).

  5. I just finished this one and was completely surprised by how much I loved it! It wasn't at all what I expected and I finished it with a huge smile on my face because it surprised me and I love when that happens. Edgar Allen Poe is super disturbing. Brilliant, but disturbing:)

  6. I can't say I've read any of these, but I do have Dark Eden coming up! And it sounds awesome - can't wait to start it!

  7. Poe has some seriously creepy stories. There was this one I read last year called The Tell-Tale Heart and it creeped me out!

    Dark Eden sounds really good!!

  8. I have only read Frankenstein but that one was sooo creepy! I hate scary stories so I don't think I could read these. =P

  9. I haven't read any of those books! Which probably is a good thing, since I can't handle spooky! :)

  10. I haven't read Dark Eden yet, but I do have to say, it seems quite spectacular!!! I've been following the story for awhile, and the app/book idea, making each one separate but still not, is possibly one of the most interesting combos I have seen in awhile. Check this book out, it will be worth every second you read!

  11. Hey PC fans!!:) trying to spread the word about Dark Eden! Please spread about it!!!:):)

  12. I haven't read any of the books you listed. Though I have read Edgar Allan Poe. I'm kind of one of those people who jumps at shadows. I'm working on it though :)


Thanks for stopping by! :)
