I thought I did this one, apparently I was wrong.

List your favorite horror genre books. These may include monsters, zombies, ghosts, vampires, etc

Ashley Marie Horns by Joe Hill NOS4A2 by Joe Hill Locke & Key, Vol. 1 Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill Locke & Key, Vol. 4 Keys to the Kingdom by Joe Hill Pet Sematary by Stephen King

I'm a bit of a Joe Hill fangirl ;)

Becky (bek11) | 451 comments I would have

It by Stephen King & The Stand by Stephen King

I read a lot of Stephen King in high school. Then I stopped reading the horror. Not sure why. I think college got in the way.

I don't really read this genre but here goes:
The Monstrumologist The Monstrumologist (The Monstrumologist, #1) by Rick Yancey

Rot and Ruin Rot and Ruin (Benny Imura, #1) by Jonathan Maberry

Game Game (Jasper Dent, #2) by Barry Lyga

Far Far Away Far Far Away by Tom McNeal (not your typical horror but very creepy!)

Hold Me Closer, Necromancer Hold Me Closer, Necromancer (Necromancer, #1) by Lish McBride

I know a couple of these could be considered paranormal/dystopian but they include zombies and supernatural beings so I am counting them!

What is in October Ashley??? I looked after you posted that and found out they are making a Monstrumologist movie! I am stoked. It looks like it is only in production so I don't think that is what you were referring to??

I'm surprised that not a lot of people actually read horror. I wish that YA would actually release more YA horror.

Some of the ones I liked
1. The Monstrumologist (The Monstrumologist, #1) by Rick Yancey
2. The Diviners (The Diviners, #1) by Libba Bray
3. Bad Girls Don't Die (Bad Girls Don't Die, #1) by Katie Alender
4. Skeleton Creek (Skeleton Creek, #1) by Patrick Carman

Can't think of another book to add

Tommy Hancock (tommyhancock) | 440 comments I don't read much horror(I'm pretty sure I recommended this topic in the main Top 5 thread, but specified it was strictly for suggestions haha)

I'll think more on a top 5(gotta run to work like, a 2 minutes ago) but for now I will list two that are golden

1. Monstrumologist(whole series)
2. Rotters(stand alone, but brilliant. just finished it last nigt)
