Thoughtful Thursdays from mylittlebookblog

Good afternoon readers; just on my lunch break at work so going to have to make this a quick one! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day even though it is horribly gloomy outside, I am not enjoying the walk to the bus station in the morning at the moment. After today’s rather gruesome review I wanted to ask;

What is the most shocking book you have read?

It could be shocking because of the content, or the writing style, a character or just because it was a little scary! Let me know in the comments 😀

    Glamorama by Bret Easton Ellis. It starts as a detached ennui ridden story about fashion and celebrity then it turns into an intense and vicious story about nihilistic terrorists and conspiracies. I love it but it’s bleak and nasty.

    Oooh, this is a tough one.

    I think the most shocking book I’ve ever read had to be a horror. I’d never read a horror story before, so when the characters took their clothes off and started dancing in an orgy to the devil, I shut it, told the author it wasn’t my thing, and have never picked up another horror book since!

    Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

    The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was very shocking when it was published in 1848. It is one of my favourite classics of all time. 🙂

    As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I also add participating blogs to my feed reader.

    So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, I’m reading you loud and clear, I have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts, and you’ll likely see me drop by again during November.

    Happy NaBloPoMo to you!

    I would have to say “The Stand” by Stephen King. I did not see the Hand of God coming. LoL! Either that or House by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. Those two working together made quite a thrill ride.
