The theme is Food Horror.

Time once again to think about what books you would like to feast on as a group. Since November is a month for Thanksgiving and the harvest, and we're all thinking about parties and celebrations, the theme for November is FOOD HORROR. Books that include any type of food or eating in general as a part of the plot will qualify. So get your appetites ready, pile your plates high, and dig in to some good horror!

*****
As always, Authors/Publishers may NOT nominate their own works. Books read in the group within the past few years are ineligible.
You can find a list of those here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Books with the most nominations, seconds, thirds, etc., have a better chance of making it to the final poll.

Have fun!

Renee (elenarenee) I am on a phone today. I have always wanted to read Thinner by Bachman, I cant search the already read books or provide a link. Is it okay if I nominate it?

Thinner would fit the theme.


message 4: by Thomas (new)

Thomas (verkisto) Would Matt Wallace's Envy of Angels count as horror?


message 6: by Cory (new)

Cory Cowley | 5 comments My book Bending Reality would qualify. There’s a very graphic scene in which the character eats some “questionable” food as well an in-detail expulsion scene.
