9 Novels So Scary You'll Be Tricked And Treated

Little, Brown/Thorndike/Ecco

Originally published on Kirkus

There are many ways to be scared, and just as many novels to tweak this or that fright receptor in your mind. We call Grady Hendrix’s Horrorstör “cute and quite funny in a Scooby Doo kind of way” until things get a little darker. Lauren Beukes’ Broken Monsters, however, features monsters that “will keep you up all night.” Pick your poison: The books on this week’s list run the gamut from clever to terrifying.
