The Best YA Horror Books Ever, According To Goodreads Users
By Kerri Jarema
It's Horror Week on Goodreads, so while scaredy cat readers like me are cowering at every link, lovers of all the best and biggest scary, eerie, spooky reads are reveling in this decidedly horrific build up to Halloween. The site has released their Top 50 All-Time Favorite Horror Novels as chosen by based on overall shelvings (i.e., the number of times each book has been marked as "read" or "want to read"), plus reader reviews and ratings. If you're feeling a frightening chill making its way down your spine right now, it's for good reason.
The list includes a wide array of books from YA to middle grade, classics to stories that have become better known for their film counterparts. But each book contains tales so goosebumps raising, and keep-you-up-at-night terror inducing that you'll consider sleeping with the lights on. And if you're looking for a little something scary in young adult (in the hopes that it probably won't be quite as scarring as some of the others on the list...) you've got to check out the three reads that made it onto the final selection below. And if you're brave enough, head over to Goodreads for the full list of favorite horror reads.
