Sorry, I have to make this up from yesterday. I was preparing for a party at my friend's house, but here it is. I'll write today's as soon as I finish.

This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death.
And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides -- or are chosen. A world in which good rides on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abigail -- and the worst nightmares of evil are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the dark man.

Author: Stephan King
Release date: September 1st 2005 first published 1974

Rating: 3.60
Publisher: Pocket
Book summary: 
Carrie White is unaware of her extraordinary powers, until she is pushed over the edge by her classmates and transforms the quiet New England town into a holocaust of destruction.

Title: 'Salem's Lot
Author: Stephen King
Release date:  July 1st 1977 first published 1975
Rating: 3.74
Publisher: New English Library
Book summary:
'Salem's Lot is a small New England town with white clapboard houses, tree-lined streets, and solid church steeples.That summer in 'Salem's Lot was a summer of home-coming and return; spring burned out and the land lying dry, crackling underfoot. Late that summer, Ben Mears returned to 'Salem's Lot hoping to cast out his own devils...and found instead a new unspeakable horror.
A stranger had also come to the Lot, a stranger with a secret as old as evil, a secret that would wreak irreparable harm on those he touched and in turn on those they loved.
All would be changed forever-Susan, whose love for Ben could not protect her; Father Callahan, the bad priest who put his eroded faith to one last test and Mark, a young boy who sees his fantasy world become reality and ironically proves the best equipped to handle the relentless nightmare of 'Salem's Lot.
Yes, they are all Stephan King, it just kind of happened like that. I took the first five horror books from Goodreads and that's what happened. Stephan King is amazing so, why shouldn't his books be featured every once and a while?

Anyway, these books are the scariest--in my opinion--on the lot. Check them out!
Danny is only five years old, but he is a 'shiner', aglow with psychic voltage. When his father becomes caretaker of an old hotel, his visions grow out of control. Cut off by blizzards, the hotel seems to develop an evil force, and who are the mysterious guests in the supposedly empty hotel?
