It's almost October 31st, and we're feeling some serious Halloween vibes within our TBR pile.

The above gallery of young adult novels mostly all hail from the horror and thriller genres (duh!), with a few witchy stories and funny takes on classic horror tropes sprinkled in between.

To keep it interesting, this list won't be filled with the extremely popular, like the Miss Peregrine's series from Ransom Riggs or Madeleine Roux's Asylum stories (though we recommend both!), but instead some under-the-radar horror YA released within the past year only.

Be prepared to sleep with the light on after checking these newer offerings out.
