Slasher Girls and Monster Boys is an anthology of YA horror that is a creepy, fun read. The stories are by 14 of the best authors in today’s YA fiction and include Jonathan Maberry, Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu and Nova Ren Suma. Each author has been inspired by other stories, film or television to create these tales that give the readers the thrills and chills we are looking for in October.

As in most anthologies, I definitely preferred some stories over others, but I suspect this comes down to personal choice as they are all appropriately gruesome, disturbing and eerie in various ways. My particular favorites were “The Birds of Azalea Street” by Nova Ren Suma and “In the Forest Dark and Deep” by Carrie Ryan, but I heartily recommend this collection to all horror story lovers. ( )

Unlike most short story collections, Slasher Girls and Monster Boys has a very specific gimic: each story is inspired by one or several pre-existing tales, ranging from Psycho to I Know What You Did Last Summer to Frankenstein and The Omen. Unfortunately, much like every other anthology, this collections high highs were offset by its low lows. ( )

Audiobooked this on a road trip. Stopped in the middle of Leigh Bardugo's story. Definitely want to pick it up later, but just not feeling it now.

YA horror with various standard tropes, e.g. the serial killer whose scheme is turned back on him. I borrowed it for the Leigh Bardugo story, but enjoyed Jonathan Maberry’s “Fat Girl with a Knife” best. ( )
