Here There Are Monsters is a terrifyingly good choice if you’re in the mood for chilling YA literature this October. The story begins when two teen sisters, Skye and Deirdre, move across the country to a new house situated on the edge of a creepy forest and a foggy swamp. When Deirdre starts wandering around the woods and making strange totems out of twigs and bones, Skye assumes it’s just her social misfit sister acting weird as usual. Then Deirdre vanishes.
Will Skye be able to save her sister and come to grips with the true depth of the darkness she’s about to uncover?
The author creates a vivid (albeit bleak) atmosphere throughout her novel that is guaranteed to give readers goosebumps. There is an underlying message relating to the damage caused by bullying, but the book will mostly resonate with young fans of Gothic horror stories/movies who are in for a good scare.
If you’re looking for a terrifyingly good book to keep you up at night, Here There Are Monsters is for you.

The Secret Commonwealth is the second volume in Philip Pullman’s epic YA fantasy trilogy, The Book of Dust. For those who don’t know, The Book of Dust is the author’s brand new companion trilogy to his award-winning His Dark Materials trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass). The main protagonists of His Dark Materials were the scrappy, 12-year-old heroine, Lyra Belacqua (aka Lyra Silvertounge), and her daemon, Pantalaimon. The first volume of The Book of Dust, La Belle Sauvage, served as a prequel to His Dark Materials. In that book, readers followed baby Lyra and her 11-year-old guardian, Malcolm Polstead, along a hair-raising chase during a flood of biblical proportions. Now, The Secret Commonwealth takes readers 20 years into the future (roughly 10 years after the events at the end of His Dark Materials) and introduces them to adult Lyra for the first time.
Pullman’s new book features all the suspense, adventures, and gorgeous prose that have made all of his previous novels so special and so popular. If you liked His Dark Materials and La Belle Sauvage, you’re going to love The Secret Commonwealth. If you’re new to the series, you still have time to catch up before the new His Dark Materials television series drops later this month!
