Read Till You Scream

16 Nov
A good book keeps you reading through the night, but you’ll be cowering under the covers with our spooky reading list. We combed through the top-rated horror books of 2012 to gather a grisly collection of ghost- and monster-themed books. Test your nerves against these paranormal fiction finds guaranteed to deliver the creepy crawly, goose-bump Halloween terror we love. Maybe you’ll be leaving the light on after one of these.
Nocturnal
By Scott Sigler (Goodreads Author)
San Francisco homicide detective Bryan Clauser is having prescient dreams about a series of murders as his investigation leads him closer to the subterranean killers that lurk beneath the city streets and only come out at night. Goodreads member Mitch calls it “a terrifying descent into a nightmarish world along with some of the most incredible action scenes put to paper.”
The Haunting of Maddy Clare
By Simone St. James (Goodreads Author)
Penniless temp worker Sarah Piper gets an unexpected assignment: assisting the dashing Alistair Gellis, a professional ghost hunter and shell-shocked World War I veteran. He requires a female assistant to rid a haunted barn in North England of an enraged, man-hating spirit. Goodreads member Jess says, “I have not been so scared by a ghost story in a very long time…truly chilling.”
14
By Peter Clines
Nate’s run-down Hollywood apartment building may have mutant cockroaches, but the dirt cheap price is right. When he keeps noticing more eccentricities—hidden rooms, weird noises, and blocked staircases—the creeped-out tenants soon band together to discover the building’s secret. Goodreads member Nick calls it “a near-flawless mystery-thriller-horror…a treasury of mind-bogglery.”
I, Zombie
By Hugh Howey (Goodreads Author)
The breakout author of the dystopian hit Wool reanimates the trope of the zombie apocalypse in this gory horror novel, told from the point of view of the decaying, ravenous corpses themselves. Goodreads memberMelissa says, “…there is something trapped within the monstrously disgusting outer shell of this narrative. Something alive, something true, something real.”
Severed
Story by Scott Snyder (Goodreads Author) & Scott Tuft(Goodreads Author), art by Attila Futaki
If Freddy Krueger haunted your childhood, this graphic novel’s for you. When 12-year-old Jack runs away from home in search of his dad, his cross-country journey through rural 1916 America is tracked by the sinister “Salesman” with a disarming smile. Goodreads member Tristan says, “A classic style of horror, one written like an old child’s warning tale. The story is gripping, with gorgeous artwork that leaves you cringing.”
What’s the scariest book you’ve ever read?
