What Book Was So Creepy You Had To Stop Reading?

Everybody has at least one.

Fall is a great time to do a little spooky reading, but sometimes, things can get a little toooo ~spooky~.

So we'd like to know: what's a book you tried to read, but couldn't finish because it was just too scary?

Maybe Stephen King's IT completely destroyed your perception of clowns and you couldn't read another page.

Maybe Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark straight-up gave you nightmares and you decided enough was enough.

Or heck, maybe Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale was just too real for you, and you dipped out before the final chapter.

Whatever it is, tell us in the comments below! Share which books were just too horrifying to finish and why. Particular chapters and scenes would be great! We'll feature your responses in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post.
