Lilyn’s Picks

Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy #1) by Mira Grant

Feed bookcover

Almost any book by her, really, but Feed is the one that made me go “Ahhh, yessss, you are good!” – Lilyn

Check out Lilyn’s review of Feed!

Into the Mist (Taine McKenna Adventures #1) by Lee Murray

Book cover for Into the Mist

“Unusual chomp ‘n’ stomps in unusual locations. She writes her characters and country with passion. And people still get gobbled.” – Lilyn

Gracie’s Picks

Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling edited by Jaym Gates and Monica Velentinelli

Book cover for Upside Down

“Upside Down is a mixed anthology but it has a lot of women authors in it and not one but two editors that are women. It’s becoming more common seeing a woman’s name in the ‘edited by’ credits and hopefully it becomes more common” – Gracie

The Spirit Chaser (Spirit Chasers #1) by Kat Mayor

Book cover for The Spirit Chaser

“I very rarely read paranormal horror. Nothing against it, it’s just not really my thing. But I really love The Spirit Chaser series. I even had to create a new shelf for it because it’s the only paranormal romance that I have. I love the relationship between Casey and Austin because they genuinely feel like a couple, rather than two people in lust, not love.”– Gracie

Tracy’s Picks

The Good House by Tananarive Due

Book cover for The Good House

“Dr. Due’s book is a master class in horror. Suspense, beautiful writing and a platter full of horrific scenes combine with the storytelling that had me wishing it was another 400 pages long. I was not ready to let that book go.” – Tracy

Benny Rose, The Cannibal King by Hailey Piper

“I haven’t written my review for this yet but here’s what you need to know: It hit all the horror buttons and it’s wonderfully written” – Tracy

Olly’s Picks

Fever Dream by Samantha Schweblin

“A twisted, nightmarish believable tale of modern eco horror. It’s one that has lingered with me since I read it.” – Olly

Sam’s Picks

Infernal by Cheryl Low

“It’s fantastic survival horror and wastes 0 time getting right into the action! It strikes a really great balance between the action and the atmosphere. I finished it in one sitting!” – Sam

The Making of Gabriel Davenport (Gabriel Davenport #1) by Beverly Lee

“I loved the first book and I’m reading the second now, I’m totally engrossed. I have no doubts that the third book will be just as fantastic!” – Sam

Trust me, that’s not half of the women in horror fiction today! But I hope our readers will come through with some more authors to expand our ever-growing list. You can also check out the Ladies of Horror Fiction site for a list of women authors that’s already had an impressive number of authors added to it and is still growing!
