Blood and Salt comes out this week, and it's seriously sexy (and also seriously unsettling). Kim's called it a horromance which is pretty accurate. What better way to celebrate that than having author Kim Liggett share her top five sexiest (and her top five scariest) scenes from pop culture for a super fun top ten list?!
Before we get to the scary and sexy goodness, here is a little about Blood and Salt (goodreads)
Romeo and Juliet meets Children of the Corn in this one-of-a-kind romantic horror.First up are her top five sexiest scenes (because those are always more fun).
“When you fall in love, you will carve out your heart and throw it into the deepest ocean. You will be all in—blood and salt.”
These are the last words Ash Larkin hears before her mother returns to the spiritual commune she escaped long ago. But when Ash follows her to Quivira, Kansas, something sinister and ancient waits among the rustling cornstalks of this village lost to time.
Ash is plagued by memories of her ancestor, Katia, which harken back to the town’s history of unrequited love and murder, alchemy and immortality. Charming traditions soon give way to a string of gruesome deaths, and Ash feels drawn to Dane, a forbidden boy with secrets of his own.
As the community prepares for a ceremony five hundred years in the making, Ash must fight not only to save her mother, but herself—and discover the truth about Quivira before it’s too late. Before she’s all in—blood and salt.
I've read all the books. It's difficult to choose just one moment, but when Jamie's guarding Claire's door at the inn-- that's pretty charged.
I loved the books. I loved the show. This entire series is like sex on a stick (Lafayette reference).
My favorite moments are between Sookie and Bill in season one. When he comes into Merlott's and everyone's staring at the two of them. He says her name--- "Sookie". Goosebumps.
I'm so in love with this show. Dorian Gray in season one-- oh my lord. His scenes crackle. One of my favorites is when he first meets Vanessa Ives. The electricity is palpable.
That scene when Damon and Elena kiss outside the no-tell motel. Ridiculously hot.
Agree with so many of these sexy scenes (particularly anything with Jamie and Claire!)
Now for the the horror part of Kim's top ten list....
1) Rosemary's Baby
That bedroom scene is terrifying. It has that hallucinogenic quality that really gets under my skin. Is it real-- is it a dream? It's disturbing in the best/worst way.
I adored the book and the movie. Kathy Bates killed it. So chilling.
3) The Lottery finale
A week doesn't go by that I don't think about this Shirley Jackson story.
4) The Others
5) The Exorcist
This is the one movie I can't watch alone.
Definitely some great choices! Some of these movies would be perfect to watch for Halloween!
