9 Scary Books for Teens to Read Based on Movies
As a kid, I Iong questioned why on earth I would subject myself to scary reads — the slightest glimpse of just the cover of a horror movie VHS tape at my neighborhood video store could give me nightmares for days. But I came of age in the era of Christopher Pike and R. And, in reading those, I realized that the great thing about scary books is that — unlike with films — you can go at your own pace and imagine the scenes yourself. As other book trends come and go, horror is a trusty genre, and one that — judging from some of the classics listed here — holds up over time. These 13 creepy books some old, some new are sure to haunt teen readers in all the right ways.
