7 Horror Books That Keep 13 Year Olds At The Edge Of The Seat

Better than whatever Hollywood could offer you.

Horror films are dead, forget about them already. Hollywood has been bombarding us with images so gross for more than sixty plus years that nothing plastered upon the silver screen scares us anymore. Everything creepy and horrifying you can think of has already been done.

So, you need a newer source of scares for you, don’t you? Look no further than within the pages. Something that Hollywood can’t ever hope to replicate is the interpretation of fear that your own mind can come up with, which apparently your brain custom makes based on your very own subconscious fears and biases to ensure you piss yourself silly.

Think about it, if your mind can make you anxious about something as trivial as a class presentation, how much can it wreck you once submerged fully into the darkness of the best horror books for 13-year-olds.
