The Dead and the Dark

Creepiness takes on a new form in this dark, YA horror novel. Logan just wants a normal life with her dads. They travel around the country hunting ghosts and visiting spooky places and Logan is tired. So when her dads tell her they’re leaving their home that they’ve lived in for a while, Logan isContinue reading “The Dead and the Dark”

Don’t Tell A Soul

Wow. Wow. Wow wow wow. This was such a great story. From the beginning, the atmosphere was perfect. Just creepy enough that it makes the hairs on the back of your neck stick up and has you muttering warnings to the main character, Bram. I loved the angle that this story took, that Bram wasn’tContinue reading “Don’t Tell A Soul”

Home Before Dark

Ok. So I’ve been trying to figure out what kind of horror books I like and I think this one has finally sealed the deal. I love paranormal horror/thrillers. I know that feelings on this book are a little split, but I have to say that this one is a good, scary, ghost story. ThisContinue reading “Home Before Dark”

I’ve mentioned before how I’m slowly getting into the genre of horror, specifically young adult horror, andContinue reading “The Last Witness”

Burn Our Bodies Down

Well that just thoroughly creeped me out. Rory Power strikes again with a chilling horror novel about familial abuse and the secrets we keep from each other. My favorite thing about this book was that it didn’t keep the action from me. This is more character-driven, yes, but the twists and turns and mysteries areContinue reading “Burn Our Bodies Down”

The Grace Year

Another dystopian that focuses on how awful society is to women and what the long term repercussions of that could be? Sign me up, I guess? But really, this book was great. Was it perfect? No, but like not everything can be perfect. I think I would have like it a lot more without theContinue reading “The Grace Year”

Wilder Girls

What better for Halloween than a horror novel about young girls isolated on an island off of Maine because of a disease breakout (the Tox) where not just the animals are morphing and becoming more violent, but so are the girls. This book is dark, twisted, creepy, and deeply engaging. I caught my legs shakingContinue reading “Wilder Girls”
