Here are some of my favorite spooky novels (in some cases thrillers or otherwise twisty), and in particular books that influenced me while I was working on Amity!
“The ne plus ultimate haunted house story, I like to think of Amity‘s Gwen as sort of a modern spin on Eleanor, a young woman seeing and experiencing ghostly things, whose mind and perceptions can’t be trusted.”
“A slow-burner filled with atmosphere. Merricat is the platonic ideal of an unreliable narrator.”
“A suggestible man, prone to violence, isolated in a hotel that exerts evil force over his will… Jack Torrance is to Amity‘s Connor as Hill House‘s Eleanor is to Gwen.”
“A modern take on The Turn of the Screw, Griffin draws from chilling source material and makes it her own for today’s teen readers.”
“A dark and twisty thriller (the movie’s great, too) that serves up multiple POV’s on a platter. I spent a lot of time poring over the many distinct voices of that book.”
“Epic and sprawling, boldly visionary, and still she manages to tie all of her narrative threads together by the series’ conclusion. To spend ten minutes in that woman’s head!”
“Pacing, pacing, pacing. Totally un-put-downable.”
“(That one probably goes without saying.)”
“The pages turn and the ending twists!”
