While I wasn't physically abused as a child, I immediately identified with this comic strip. Comics were the first thing I read voraciously when I was young and I still read them now at 40. They helped with my intellectual and emotional growth during my formative years and it was for the reasons described here.

Writing, and by association reading, has always been cool. The coolest are those who are well-read and intelligent. This list is allegedly the coolest of the cool. That can also be translated into "Books for hipster douchebags" but even before some of the books on this list became cliched, they were/are still pretty cool.

Talent in writing comes from those blessed with brevity. Getting your point across in the fewest possible words is a gift. That's why I'm so impressed with this page of horror stories, each only two sentences long, but truly terrifying. Enjoy.

I love me some horror novels & the ones on this list are pretty strong. Each author is only allowed one book on the list (and you can see the Stephen King entry, which has my seal of approval). Obviously, all lists are subjective but even if you don't agree, you'll probably get some good recommendations.
Found this story whilst StumblingUpon and thought it was creepy, intense, and beautiful all at once. The next time you decide to partake in a little fat shaming, you might want to keep this in mind.
