10 Best Teenage-Centric Horror Books Depicting the Dark Side of Adolescenceの表紙

Discovering the gnarled nooks and crannies of adolescence can be a tumultuous ride at best. But when the usual trials and tribulations of teenage life start getting a tinge too tame, why not press the pedal and take a detour through the doorways of dread? We are talking hair-raising, spine-tingling, heart-stopping horror - mind you, quite a far cry from chemistry homework. If you're a young adult with a penchant for the macabre, you're in for a glorious ghoul-filled treat. Today, we're shining a spectral light on the best teenage-centric horror books. These chilling narratives don’t just cloak our favourite monster-in-the-closet tales in adolescent angst; they rip open the belly of teenage existence to reveal the dark, disturbing underbelly. Whether it's the eerie mysteries lurking in the lockers of high schools, haunted hallways of dormitories, or the sinister secrets of popular kids - Inside these pages, horror isn’t always supernatural; it's often right next door. They delve into the terror of transitioning from childhood to adulthood and record the uncanny echoes of your worst nightmares and deepest fears. So, brace yourself as we dive headfirst into the eerie abyss. You have been warned...

『Carrie (Spanish Movie Tie-In Edition)』

Carrie (Spanish Movie Tie-In Edition)の表紙

Sus compañeros se burlan de ella, pero Carrie tiene un don. Puede mover cosas con su mente. Este es su poder y su gran problema. Pero aunque un acto de bondad, tan espontáneo como las burlas crueles de sus compañeros, le ofrece a Carrie la oportunidad de ser normal, una inesperada crueldad transforma su don en un arma de horror y destrucción. Con un pulso mágico que mantiene la tensión a lo largo de todo el libro, Stephen King narra la atormentada adolescencia de Carrie, y nos envuelve en una atmósfera sobrecogedora hasta llegar a un terrible momento de venganza que nadie olvidará.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Childrenの表紙

The #1 New York Times best-selling series. Bonus features • Q&A with author Ransom Riggs • Eight pages of color stills from the film • Sneak preview of Hollow City, the next novel in the series A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows. “A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.”—John Green, New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars “With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it’s no wonder Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+”—Entertainment Weekly “‘Peculiar’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. Riggs’ chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies.”—People “You’ll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It’s a mystery, and you’ll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself.”—Seventeen

『The Coldest Girl in Coldtown』

The Coldest Girl in Coldtownの表紙

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black. Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown's gates, you can never leave. One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

『Anna Dressed in Blood』

Anna Dressed in Bloodの表紙

From Kendare Blake, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Three Dark Crowns, a beautiful and haunting ghost story Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead. So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay. When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home. But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life. Kendare Blake's Anna Dressed in Blood is a 2011 Kirkus Best Teen Books of the Year title. One of NPR's Top 5 Young Adult Novels of 2011. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

『The Hazel Wood』

The Hazel Woodの表紙

Welcome to Melissa Albert's The Hazel Wood—the fiercely stunning New York Times bestseller everyone is raving about! Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: Her mother is stolen away—by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. Alice's only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.” Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother's tales began—and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.
