All Hallow’s Read – 13 Horror Stories for Teen Readers

The Girl has graduated to the young adult section of the public library.  I pretty much give her unfettered access there.  Soon when she moves to the adult section I am going to have to go back to checking books for appropriateness. But right now she reads all kinds of books found in YA.  Her favorite these days, however seems to be Paranormal/Supernatural.  She and I read a lot of the same books. The Iron King, Beautiful Creatures, and Hex Hall to name a few.  I am not sure if she is completely ready for true horror but supernatural monsters are up our alley.
