In my book, I have an entire chapter on “whole collection” options for horror fans. You can also find posts on these options by using my “not quite horror” tag her on the blog.
But today, I wanted to highlight one of the most common crossover genres for horror fans...True Crime. Thankfully, they are easy to find at the library since they are all shelved together under the same Dewey number (364.1523), but the quality in that large section of books ranges widely.
So, here are my favorite lists and resources to suggest some True Crime to your horror fans:
- My favorite resource for all formats and genres of crime is Criminal Element. Here is the direct link for all things labelled True Crime.
- In my opinion The Guardian UK has the best online book coverage of any newspaper in the world. Click here for a list of ten great true crime books that came out last October.
- The Huffington Post also does an admirable job covering books. Here is a list of 10 True Crime Books You Won’t Be Able to Put Down.
- Barnes and Noble’s 9 Books for the True-Crime Obsessed.
- This list may be particularly interesting to horror readers-- 10 Controversial True Crime Books from Listverse.
- Here is the link to the genre page for True Crime on Goodreads. From here you can see the newest books, giveaways, and a ranked list of the most popular titles.
