Eight books that’ll make you scared to go back in the water

At the B&N Reads blog Kat Rosenfield tagged eight books that will scare you out of the water and on to the beach, including:
Jaws, by Peter Benchley

Before Jaws was a classic beachgoer’s horror starring Richard Dreyfuss and a host of hi-tech animatronic sharks, it was a beach read that would (and still will!) keep you quivering on the shore until winter. You know how the story goes, but if anything, the shark attacks are even more ghastly and gruesome in print than they were onscreen.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Jaws is among Rebecca Jane Stokes's seven books not to bring to the beach, the Barnes & Noble Review's five top books set at the beach, and six hugely popular books that accidentally screwed the world.
