Creepy Reads

Looking for a spooky title to keep you occupied this Hallow-weekend? We’ve got you covered!

There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins: “There’s Someone Inside Your House is equal parts heart-stopping horror and steamy romance. It’s tons of bloody fun.” – HelloGiggles

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson: “A ghost story with a twist, this is sophisticated and sassy, with more than enough suspense to keep you madly turning pages. I can’t wait for the next book!” – Joanne R. Fritz, Chester County Book & Music Company, West Chester, PA

The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski: “Bobulski’s beautiful and eerie young adult debut is a haunting tale of friendship, family, and the responsibilities we choose and those we do not.”  – From the publisher

New Releases




If you aren’t freaking out yet, you will be! Our Kids Buyer, Meghan, says Jason Reynold’s newest masterpiece “never overplays its hand, suggesting rather than narrating the layers of meaning between the lines.”

We’re also pumped about Liara Tamani’s Calling My Name. See what our Kids Events & Marketing Coordinator, Eugenia, has to say below:

calling my name

“Along with her elegant prose and the beautiful author quotes that introduce each chapter of Taja’s life, Tamani beautifully portrays the struggle a girl faces when she’s trying to be both ‘good’ – or what she’s been told is ‘good’ – and be herself.”

Mark your calendars!
