Point Horror Returns!

As a lover of both horror and YA fiction, it should come as no surprise to any of you that I adore Point Horror, an imprint catering to horror-loving teens. I’ve lamented for a long time that it’s no longer around, but it looks like I won’t have to lament much longer, because this May—just in time for my birthday!—Point Horror is returning with a whole new slew of spooky fiction:


 Just click on the covers above to learn more about each book. I especially love the cover for Defriended, since that is just soooo Point Horror!

What about the rest of you? Anyone else looking forward to the return of Point Horror this May?

  1. If the stories are as clever as the titles they should be good reads.

    1. That's what I'm hoping! Point Horror books were always so fun to read when I was younger, so my fingers are crossed that the next generation of them won't disappoint...

    1. They are cool books! (The ones from the original imprint were, anyway. I'm hopeful that these ones will be, too!)

  3. Awesome! I adored those books when I was younger! I also dated a guy at university who proudly showed me his collection of every Point Horror ever published.

  4. I've never heard of this brand, but they sound like fun. When I was a lot younger, there was a series of horror books for YA readers called Twilight books (not Meyers' Twilight series. This was LONG before!).

    1. Cool! I've always loved the word "twilight." I can see it fitting a YA horror series back in the day. Such a shame that Stephenie Meyer had to steal it like she did! XD

  7. I didn't know about this, but I used to love Point Horror when I was younger (I had over thirty of them on my bookshelf) so I'm going to have to check these out! I love the titles of these books too - especially Wickedpedia. Very clever! Looks like these books will follow in the best traditions of Point Horror!
