Spooky Reads for Teens

With Halloween fast approaching, now is the perfect time to check out two new spooky stories from well-known teen authors Libba Bray and Maggie Stiefvater.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater is the first in the series from the author of The Scorpio Races (another great Halloween read).  Blue knows that her true love will die after their first kiss (as told by her psychic mother).  This seriously limits her dating possibilities and is her first rule.  Her second rule is to have nothing to do with the Raven Boys who attend the local private school.  But everything changes when Blue sees a spirit for the first time on her family’s annual trek to the corpse road and the spirit, wearing the blazer with the raven emblem, tells her his name is Gansey.

Libba Bray‘s latest series starts with The Diviners.  Set in New York City during the roaring twenties, Evie is thrilled to be staying with her uncle and helping out at his museum of “creepy crawlies.”  But when bodies start turning up with occult symbols near them, her uncle is drawn into the investigation to help solve the crimes, along with Evie.  But the evil in the city might also be affecting Evie and others in ways she hasn’t discovered yet. Will she be able to uncover the killer before it is too late?
