I love a good horror novel about grief and healing and White Horse is a masterclass in that subgenre. Kari James is given a bracelet that belonged to her dead mother, and as soon as she receives it she finds herself haunted by her mother's ghost. As she struggles to uncover the truth of her mother's murder, she also must grapple with the grief and trauma she has let consume her for years.

This is maybe the best follow up to Dracula I have ever read, and trust me when I say I have read a lot. Gothic and sensual and capital R Romantic, Gibson captures the cultural feeling of Dracula while fleshing out the three brides and giving us their dark and bloody story. Vampire fans will not want to miss out on this ravenous story swathed in romance.

This novel moves from Antigua to Zagreb, Umbertide to Beijing, and Oaxaca to Lyon in a biting, technofuturist romp through the dark side of technology and global connection. Read the first sentence and tell me you don't want to immediately sit down and devour the rest. If you like watching Black Mirror, covering your laptop camera with tape, and Tamagotchis, you'll like this book.

This is a YA sapphic horror novel that asks the question: What would you give to achieve your deepest wishes? It's an atmospheric, creepy novel that at the same time manages to have sweet romance and funny moments. Read it for a marriage of Jennifer's Body and The Craft or give it to the horror-loving teen in your life.

A horror book that centers around gender politics in a way that doesn't use trauma in the queer community as its only crutch! A wildly entertaining read that also makes you think about the world around us and the horror that exists today. Side note: if you are also angry with J.K. Rowling because.. duh... there is a moment in this book specifically for you. CW: transphobia, mental health, mentions of self harm, graphic violence

Nothing But Blackened Teeth

Nothing but Blackened Teeth is kind of the perfect ghost story. Right from the beginning, it establishes a sense of dread that only grows with every page. Five friends, with fraught histories of their own, rent out a haunted Japanese mansion for a wedding. In order to provide a welcoming environment for the ghosts, the group lights a hundred candles to blow out one by one as each person tells a ghost story. When the last candle goes out, things go from tense to hostile. This book feels like a ghost story that would get told in the flickering candlelight of your own haunted sleepover (maybe even at a Japanese mansion). The narrator, Cat, is both incredibly intuitive and slightly detached from the situation, watching as her friends make all the wrong decisions but unable to stop them. Familiar without being predictable and self-aware in a way that brings an alarming inevitability to the ending

Unsettling, atmospheric, and unputdownable. This feels like a horror novel and becomes something much more unexpected. It’s best to go in knowing little and let the puzzle pieces come together along the way.
