Book Lists: 2022 Adult Horror Novels on My TBR

Horror is having a kind of renaissance in publishing right now and I cannot be more excited. I have always loved horror movies and shows, but I never really got into horror until last year. I have been missing out on so much fun. Horror is one of the genres I really want to explore more of in 2022, especially adult horror. I have a ton of adult horror on my TBR that releases this year, so I thought I would share with you the ones I am most excited for. Note that Don’t Fear the Reaper by Stephen Graham Jones’s release date has recently been moved to 2023, but I am still keeping it on the list. Covers/titles are linked to Goodreads.

  1. Horror books are really not my jam because I’m *the ultimate chicken* but I have to admit that I’m really curious about The Hacienda and Juniper & Thorn! I might be able to handle the latter but not sure about the former 😂 I hope you enjoy all of these books though and happy reading!

  2. I do love adult horror, and have a bunch of these on my TBR list for this year including What Moves the Dead, The Hacienda, The Daughter of Dr Moreau, and the Grady Hendrix book. Can’t wait! I have already read Cherish Farrah and well… let’s just say I’d be interested in hearing someone else’s perspective on it. This is a great list! I’ll have to look into more of these!
