Is This Considered Suspense? (Question for Halloween Bingo Square)
The Girl on the Train - Paula Hawkins

I don't read a lot of suspense, so I don't know exactly what qualifies. I know this book has been popular, and the premise looks interesting.

Day 11 Bring on the Horror
Dracula's Guest and Other Weird Tales - Bram Stoker,Kate Hebblethwaite
Dead Sea - Tim Curran
The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories - H.P. Lovecraft,S.T. Joshi
Frankenstein - Mary Shelley,Maurice Hindle
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Tales of Terror - Robert Louis Stevenson,Robert Mighall
The Cold - Rich Hawkins
Ghost Story - Jeff Brackett
High Moor - Graeme Reynolds
Letters To The Damned - Austin Crawley

Ooooh, where do I start on this?

 

I like certain types of Horror. I've talked about it here before so I'll keep the recap brief, I don't like serial killers or blood and guts stuff but I'm perfectly fine with messy werewolves and other monsters.

 

I love anything psychic or occult, ghost stories, good werewolf or other monsters, including plants. I like something that makes me think. Weirdness can be good as long as it's not too confusing.

 

Strange, alternate dimension creatures are good too.

 

I used to love vampire stories, but Twilight and the Romance genre spoiled that. I find a few exceptions still worth reading.

 

I find most of the Horror Classics are very good. Original concepts like a haunted post box definitely get my attention (that was a good one BTW).

 

There's a lot of great stuff in the Horror genre. I lean towards the more literary stuff over the sensationalist in general.

The Cold by Rich Hawkins
The Cold - Rich Hawkins

TITLE:  The Cold

 

AUTHOR:  Rich Hawkins

__________________

DESCRIPTION:

"It was an English summers day like any other until the snow began to fall and kept falling. Within hours, the entire country was buried beneath a freezing white blanket. And hidden within the blizzard conditions things began to move and kill and feast.
Seth is one of the few passengers to survive the train crash. Now he and his fellow survivors face a new world of snow, ice and freezing fog, where they will be hunted like prey in the ruins of Great Britain.
They must run.
They must hide.
They must survive THE COLD.
"

REVIEW:

 

 

This is a nicely written apocalyptic/horror novel that includes a variety of original monsters in a bleak, arctic world.  The scenery makes one shiver, the monsters are terrifying and the human dynamics and behaviour were realistic.  However, we never really find out what caused the apocalypse and the abrupt ending leaves a lot to the readers interpretation and didn't work for me.  I'm wondering if there is a sequel?

Halloween Bingo Pre-Party: Favorite Series with Supernatural Elements
The Witching Hour - Anne Rice
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré
The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien
The Crystal Cave - Mary Stewart
Dance of the Goblins - Jaq D. Hawkins

This one took a little thinking for me because I don't follow many series. When I do they tend to be Fantasy genre and the supernatural aspect is magic or shapeshifting. Horror tends to have more stand alones. So for what it's worth, these are the series that came to mind.
