Let us know which YA Thriller gets you in the Halloween mood on Twitter @dateabook

  • It Ends With You - S. K. Wright

    Dead body in the woods. Disturbing high school murder case. Second guessing. Split second twists. What more could you want from a chilling read?

  • Colour Me In - Lydia Ruffles

    When something irreparable happens, the familiar black weeds start to crawl inside nineteen year old Arlo and so he flees. But how far can you run before you lose yourself?

  • Stalking Jack the Ripper - Kerri Maniscalco

    Jack the Ripper is the perfect subject of a creepy read and with our fave heroine Audrey Rose elbow deep in cadavers for more of the novel than is strictly necessary (or so her family believes), we can’t recommend this book enough in the lead up to Halloween.

  • That's Not What Happened - Kody Keplinger

    A school massacre. A dead friend. A survivor’s secret. But what is worse: the guilt of staying silent or the consequences of speaking up . . .

  • Broken Things - Lauren Oliver

    Summer, Mia and Brynn are obsessed with a novel and their fan-fiction extensions of the world. But then Mia and Brynn murder Summer in the woods. Or so the story goes. The only thing is: they didn't do it. Engrossing and super twisty, this book has Halloween thriller written all over it.

  • The Masked Truth - Kelley Armstrong

    What’s worse than a weekend camp away from home? A room with no windows, sealed exists, three masked men, and a hostage situation. A chilling read to get you all set for Halloween.

  • The Dead House - Dawn Kurtagich

    The school burns down, and Carly Johnson disappears. Twenty-five years later, a journal is found written by her twin Kaitlyn, that details the disturbing events that lead to the fire. Except, Kaitlyn doesn’t exist, she never has. This is truly a psychological thriller like no other.
