Haunted houses, inescapable curses, serial killers, and vampires are just a few of the horrors that populate the best new scary books of 2020. In this unprecedented year, horror may not be the first genre you feel like turning to, but there's plenty of catharsis to be found in tales of book club members turned vampire slayers and teen girls facing off hordes of the undead. The best scary stories are transportive, leading the reader into a nightmarish world full of good scares — you know, the kind that leave you up at night marveling at the writer's cleverness, but still feeling secure in your own bed. These 22 titles do just that, and they'll add plenty of spookiness to your TBR just in time for Halloween, too.
