Scared myself


Did you ever read a book that scared you so badly you couldn't even finish it? You just kind of flicked through the pages to make sure you understood how it ended, and then, you threw the book out? Because it was THAT scary?

I did.

*Deep quavery breath*

Okay. Now I'm headed to bed to read Anne of Avonlea.

I started a book that in the first three pages did me so bad I carried it outside to the big garbage can cuz I didn't want the dang thing in the house. Never will open a book by that author again. Ever.

What was it? I'm curious now :)

Totally not giving out the name of this book. It's horrible. It is not some story of the supernatural. It is about a wife and a mother who is mentally ill, and wanders over the edge. I don't believe in the supernatural, but I do believe in the power of mental illness. It was too real for me.

Stephen King's IT did that to me. Also THE OMEN, which I read when I was younger and more impressionable. I am a huge ANNE OF GREEN GABLES fan, that series and THE NARNIA series. Both are my go-to books for dealing with stress.

I did and I have. I threw mine away, because I didn't want to be the one to put it in the hands of another.
