    Creeptastick reads Tami! I have’t read any of them yet, but they are ALL on my MUST read list. How wonderful that you got to hear Libba speak in person. And at Powell’s no less! I don’t have a copy of The Diviners yet, a signed copy would be awesome! GREAT post.

      Thanks, Elizabeth! Powell’s is one of my favorite places to visit. Many hours and many dollars have been spent there over the years. I always make a point to go there whenever I’m in Portland. 🙂

      Thanks! Libba was a hilarious speaker. I’m so glad I made the two hour trek to hear her speak.

    Thank you for those recommendations, Tami! I’d love to meet Libba Bray. I’ve met Maggie Stiefvater at a book sigining, and she signed my copy of “Linger” and my laptop : ) She’s approachable, very smart, and super-fun.

      Ooh, I would love to meet Maggie. The Raven Boys was the first book of hers that I’ve read and I love her writing style and voice. I’ll definitely be picking up more of her books.

      Libba was immensely entertaining – I highly recommend going to any of her public appearances if she’s ever in your neck of the woods. She’s also very approachable and took the time not only to sign everyone’s books, but she also posed for individual pictures (sometimes in goofy poses) with everyone who wanted one.

      Thanks for stopping by, Tiffany! While these aren’t as creepy as, say, some adult fiction out there, I think they deliver enough shiver-inducing creepiness to keep you turning the pages well into the night.

      Thanks, Rhonda! I love how YA has grown so much in the last several years to include creepy along with the paranormal, historical fiction, and contemporary sub-genres. It’s a good time for YA.

    Great recommendations! I love good creepy YA books, and will definitely check some of these out.

    So awesome that you were able to meet Libba Bray. Her writing style is so quirky. I can only imagine how fun was to listen to her in person!

      Libba read a story she wrote when she was in 5th grade titled “Death Castle”. She, of course, mocked herself and her writing and it was hilarious. She’s a natural at being in front of a group of people and was very at ease taking questions and interacting with the audience, too.

    I love your lineup of creepy books. Nothing better to read than something that raises your hackles on a dark and stormy night, right?

    Appreciate your great giveaway! Very sweet.

    I listen to a lot of audiobooks during my commute. I think I’ll head over to audible and get The Raven Boys right now. I’ve wanted to read it since the release!
