1. Dismember by Daniel Pyle - I am so glad I did not read this at night. It's about a madman who kidnaps a boy to try and replace his family that was killed in a car accident when he was younger. This book was legitimately terrifying and I was freaked out by the ending. When I asked the author by Twitter if there would ever be a sequel, he said "Maybe someday." Sigh. I will be waiting.
The Barter by Siobhan Adcock - This ghost story was super creepy. I read it at night and had the urge to turn on my bedroom light because I was freaked out.
3. The Uninvited by Cat Winters - A book about a girl who can see ghosts of loved ones before someone dies. The ending to this one gave me serious chills.
4. The Wayward Pines series by Blake Crouch - The conclusion to this series is the only book ever that was causing my heart to beat so fast that I just had to put it down to calm myself . . . then I immediately had to pick it up again to see what happens. The action doesn't really pick up until the second book, but it is the third book where the monsters show up. Yeah, these monsters or animals or whatever they were called were terrifying.
5. The Gone series by Michael Grant - Can I just live inside Michael Grant's head please? Mutated worm creatures, a kid who can fry other people's brains, parasitic bugs that eat people from the inside out, a boy who comes back from the dead with a mutant arm that he uses to whip people . . . yeah, that is just the tip of the iceberg.6. This Is Not A Test and Please Remain Calm by Courtney Summers - This is one duology you will not want to miss. Think The Walking Dead, but with teenagers. A virus infects society and turns people into zombies. One bite and you are affected. These books were high speed action from beginning to end. No one is safe and man, those zombies are freaking terrifying. I am still reeling from the ending.
7. Sister by Rosamund Lupton - A mystery about a woman trying to locate her missing sister. The ending of this book had a huge twist and it still gives me chills to think about it.
Alice by Christina Henry - This is not the sweet story from childhood. No, this is dark and twisted. Believe me when I say you would not want to come upon the Caterpillar in a dark alley.
9. You by Caroline Kepnes - Undoubtedly, this was the creepiest one I have read this year. It tells the POV of a stalker, Joe, who will do anything to get his obsession, Beck. It will also make you think twice about every single social media post.
10. Ice Twins by S.K. Tremayne - Does anyone else find identical twins just a little bit creepy. Okay, how about a story where one twin dies and then the surviving daughter starts saying they made a mistake when they identified the body of her sister? Yeah, this one is creepy and disturbing as hell. The ending was kind of insane.
