Very rarely do we get a YA fantasy with just the right amount of drama, action, surprises, nastiness, and the tiniest possibility of romance. The characters' treachery and betrayal felt personal, the politics left me spinning, and the tension between Jude and Cardan kept me up at night. Black has created a beautiful and dangerous world where nothing is quite as it seems — are you along for the ride?Recommended by Tiffany R.
Tomie Kawakami is the ultimate "it" girl. Beautiful and seductive, she drives men mad with just one look. They obsess over her to the point of madness, often killing her, though she just keeps on coming back. The cool girl that can't die. But she doesn't always stay pretty. This series is my personal favorite of Junji Ito's work.Recommended by Tiffany R.
From the same author that brought us one of my childhood favorites, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, comes a retold collection of short, slightly-humorous-but-also-scary stories suitable for younger audiences (grades 1-3). My favorite tale is "The Green Ribbon."Recommended by Tiffany R.
