The Shining by Stephen King

This one's a no-brainer. The Shining one of the most terrifying books of all time. More than that, if you somehow didn't already know, it's about a haunted hotel! Stephen King's novel really knows how to get the heart pounding, and we'd be surprised if Ryan Murphy didn't literally take a page or two from the master of literary horror.
