Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share the books we’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. This particular book has been on my Goodreads TBR shelf—without a cover, I might add—for almost a year! And I’m thrilled that the cover has finally been revealed:
Slasher Girls & Monster Boys edited by April Genevieve Tucholke. Releases from Dial Books in August 2015. This is a short story collection with horror and thriller stories from some of YA’s biggest names! Just take a look at the roster up there, and I’m sure you’ll be familiar with at least one of them. I’m very excited to see Jay Kristoff’s name on this list, as well as Cat Winters and A.G. Howard:-D Here’s the description from Goodreads:
For fans of Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Lois Duncan, and Daphne Du Maurier comes a powerhouse anthology featuring some of the best writers of YA thrillers and horror
A host of the smartest young adult authors come together in this collection of scary stories and psychological thrillers curated by Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’s April Genevieve Tucholke.
Each story draws from a classic tale or two—sometimes of the horror genre, sometimes not—to inspire something new and fresh and terrifying. There are no superficial scares here; these are stories that will make you think even as they keep you on the edge of your seat. From bloody horror to supernatural creatures to unsettling, all-too-possible realism, this collection has something for any reader looking for a thrill.
Fans of TV’s The Walking Dead, True Blood, and American Horror Story will tear through tales by these talented authors.
Let me know what you’re waiting on this week!
