3 Sources For Creepy, Scary #WickedGoodReads

Where do you get recommendations for dark, scary #WickedGoodReads? Here are 3 of the sources that I scour whenever I’m looking for something macabre.

#WickedGoodReads Horror Book Recommendations

  1. Bram Stoker Award Nominees & Winners. This award is presented by the Horror Writers Association (HWA) for Superior Achievement in the horror genre. There are quite a few categories to choose from including Novel, First Novel, Young Adult (YA) Novel, Anthology, Collection etc.
  2. Nightmare Magazine’s Top 100 Horror Books. This is the main list I’ll start working from over the next few years/ decades, and it’s a gem because you’ll find older classics mixed in with newer books. I’ve already read (but plan to re-read) the 3 books by Dean Koontz and 7 books by Stephen King listed. The only other book I’ve read from the list is The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham, which involves killer plants!
  3. Paste Magazine’s Required Reading: 30 of the Best Horror Books is an interesting list with classics as well as more recent titles.

All 3 lists are excellent starting points if you want to delve into horror, and also if you want to read books written by authors who helped develop the genre.
