High-res a-bookish-heart:

On my bookshelf: More Than This by Patrick Ness. Of course this is on my bookshelf. It’s only a book by my favorite author ever.
Like all of his books, More Than This takes you on quite an emotional ride. I mean, within the first chapter you’re reading about a boy drowning and it’s intense and scary and real. What more can I say than that? I think this is one of those books where going in blind is the best way to go.
If you do want to hear more about my thoughts on this one, you can check out my review over at Oh, the Books!
Oh, and let’s not forget that cover design. It’s absolutely gorgeous! Worth the purchase for that alone.

Hi Stacey! Do you have any teen horror book recommendations?

Asked by havesomepudding

Hey! I only have a few because I haven’t read that much YA horror, aside from the teen horror I read years and years ago like Point Horror and Goosebumps! I want to read more though.

Say Her Name by James Dawson
Cruel Summer by James Dawson (more of a thriller)
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (more fantasy/mystery)
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
Under My Hat: Tales from the Cauldron edited by Jonathan Strahan (mostly witchy fantasy stories)
The Tulip Touch by Anne Fine

(I also wrote a blogpost called 'Books for Halloween' last year).

I also have some on my wishlist/to-read list: Hollow Pike, The Monstrumologist, Zom-B, Rot and Ruin, The Enemy, Warm Bodies, The Diviners.
