Horror is easily my favorite genre. Each way of experiencing horror is unique.

Everyone has unique tastes and certain things that scare them; only you know what is scary to you. Being a horror fan is all about celebrating these differences, being happy for people when they find something that gave them a good time or a good scare or both, and helping each other find those experiences.

Each month, a group of teens gets together at our Anythink Wright Farms branch to discuss our favorite reads from the past month. Back in October, we gushed about our favorite spooky books. Despite all the horror enthusiasts in the room, most teens were excited about reading genre-bending works that mix fantasy, science fiction, thriller, and horror. Read more about their picks below, and stay tuned for more recommendations from the book squad.

I know there are a lot of people out there that will question, Bird Box is a book? The answer is yes, and, as a completely proud book nerd, I almost always prefer the book to any movie. With that being said, I have not seen the film adapation. Considering the amount of language in the movie versus the book, I'll stick with the book.

The heat of our fiery sun tends to weaken me this time of year. It's because of this that I harken back to a show I've long loved. It features "a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep."
