Something I’ve been wanting to do more of is round-up links of interest for older posts we’ve written here at Stacked, as well as older posts you might be interested that Kimberly and I have written elsewhere. Being that we’re on year eight at STACKED, there are so many things we’ve touched upon and dug into, and much of it is perennially interesting.
In the spirit of Halloween — my favorite holiday! — I thought it’d be worth rounding up some of the backlist posts we’ve had here and elsewhere about horror, scary reads, and other spooky things.
Please note: when we changed blog hosting services last summer, some of our older posts got a little weird in their formatting. We’re working on updating those where possible. They’re entirely readable and usable; just sometimes, the images look funny or uneven.
- A round-up of YA horror reads that hit shelves in 2015.
- On a similar note, here are some YA horror novels that hit shelves in 2014.
- Dracula‘s book covers through time. Similarly, this year on Book Riot, I showcased 40 awesome Frankenstein book covers.
- YA and YA-appealing books about haunted houses.
- A four-part “Horror 101” series from guest blogger Matthew Jackson can be read here, here, here, and here. Great for those just starting their journey into the world of horror, as well as those who love the genre and thinking about it even more.
- Curious about the funeral business? Then these YA books will be up your alley.
- Of course, we’ve talked about witches in YA fiction.
Horror talk and book lists we’ve shared elsewhere on the web:
- Why YA horror is a staple and not a trend, which includes a big reading list and exploration of different themes within the genre, from School Library Journal.
- At Book Riot, 65 great YA horror books written by women.
- What to read next for fans of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
