In all my years of reading YA I have come to find that horror is pretty rare in the young adult genre. Suspense, thriller and horror are among my favorite types of books to read and some of my favorite YA authors, like Katie Alender and Gretchen McNeil, have written some of my favorite YA horror novels. Not only is horror difficult to find in the YA section, but there as a time that Barnes & Noble pulled McNeil’s novels from the shelves because they were deemed “too scary!” That’s a whole other fish to fry but my point is that there are few authors who have lasted as long as Alender writing almost strictly horror for YA. I have read most of Alender’s previous novels and I keep coming back for more!
Night Film haunted me for almost a year with just the title and the cover alone. When it first popped up on my radar I was instantly drawn to it. I’m always down to read a good slow build mystery that has me guessing around every corner. When the story is really well written, I like to feel as if I’m the main character playing detective and trying to figure out the “who done it”. Night Film by Marisha Pessl literally had me hooked from the first page and left me completely in the dark (in a good way) throughout the whole of the story!
