A host of the smartest young adult authors come together in this collection of scary stories and psychological thrillers curated by Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’s April Genevieve Tucholke.
Each story draws from a classic tale or two—sometimes of the horror genre, sometimes not—to inspire something new and fresh and terrifying. There are no superficial scares here; these are stories that will make you think even as they keep you on the edge of your seat. From bloody horror to supernatural creatures to unsettling, all-too-possible realism, this collection has something for any reader looking for a thrill.
I’ve had this book for months and I’m so glad I finally got around to picking it up!
I’m a big fan of horror so this book was basically perfect for me. I love how many short stories were in this book and there’s so many amazing writers that contributed.
My favorite stories were Emmeline by Cat Winters, Verse Chorus Verse by Leigh Bardugo, Far Girl with a Knife by Jonathan Maberry, and Hide-And-Seek by Megan Shepherd.
If you’re looking for some great horror stories, I’d definitely recommend Slasher Girls & Monster Boys.
