Click here for Kelly Jensen’s run down of 2017 YA horror.
Kelly runs one of the best and most comprehensive YA books sites on the web- Stacked- and she loves horror.
Remember that YA horror is often perfect for adults who don’t want too much blood and gore but still want to feel the fear.
Personally, I am not a huge YA fan. I get annoyed by the whiny teen protagonists, but then again I am living in a home with 2 teens so....
But not with YA horror. I really enjoy it. I feel like sometimes, it is better than adult horror because the authors can’t just fall back on blood and guts, they have to work to create the anxiety, fear, and terror.
I have said it a million times, Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry is one of the best zombie novels ever written. I also like Amy Lukavics whose newest book is on Kelly's list.
Since Kelly likes YA horror so much, she has a lot of posts about it. And since she is a “reformed” librarian [her words], she has it all well cataloged. Just click here and you can pull up every horror post from Stacked.
