Some people like scary movies- and some people like scary books. Here are some scary, unique books that can make you shiver in the dead of night.
172 Hours on the Moon- John Harstad- Okay, not a lot of people love this book as much as I do. I thought it was the perfect amount of scary and realistic, and the best part was that it was all scientific. It wasn't some supernatural force making things happen- there was a real explanation, and the most terrifying part was that if it really happened, no one would ever know.

The Monstrumoslogist- Rick Yancey- Monsters are real. At least they are in this twisted historical fiction novel, the first in a series of four. The first installment focuses on hideous creatures that roam the countryside at night, destructive, terrifying monsters that can't be caught. Until the Monstrumologist takes it into his head to study them, anyway. To see what happens, click here and get the book.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth- Carrie Ryan- Mind the Fence. Don't venture into the forest- dangerous things lurk there. But as secrets come to light, you might find that all is not as it seems....Click here to unravel the mystery in the first book in the trilogy.
