Leah These books...
They aren't scary. At all.

elissa Hi Leah,

Well, I understand that that's your opinion, but there are definitely people who think that some of them are scary!

I specifically thought that Haunting Of Alaizabel Cray was really scary, myself.

Have you read all of the books on this list? Which is your favorite, even if you don't think it's scary?

Elissa


message 3: by Leah (new)

Leah I haven't read all of them, but I've read most.
My favorite, though, would have to be Unwind by Neal Shusterman. The way he views things is just so fascinating.
I dunno, some are creepy, but not 'Dear-lord-there's-no-sleeping-tonight' creepy.
To me, books about crazies are the creepiest.


message 4: by elissa (new)

elissa You mean crazy people? Most people probably wouldn't put books about crazy people on a horror list. :)

I liked UNWIND a lot, too!


message 5: by elissa (new)

elissa I really dislike when authors add their own books to booklists. There are several books added by authors on this list, and I'm not sure that all of them are even teen books, so beware if only one person has voted for the book, especially if it's the same person who wrote it!
