Summer Scares is here with reviews of some summer reading titles!

Welcome to our third annual summer book review project Summer Scares! (formerly know as Hazy Days of Horror).

Summer Scares!”  is a collaborative effort to give readers of horror a guide to some of the titles that are available to read this summer.

For librarians, “Summer Scares!” is an opportunity to get reviews and information you need to recommend appropriate titles for readers and make informed decisions about collection development.  In addition to providing reviews of horror titles you might be interested in adding to your collection, “Summer Scares!” highlights participating horror fiction review sites that cover both small press and mainstream horror.

Collaborating review sites include:, Horror Fiction Review,,, and Spooky Reads.

Kirsten Kowalewski offers thoughts on the dreaded H Word in our Musings of the Monster Librarian blog.
