We hope you’re in the mood for something spooky this September, because the best YA books of the month are full of haunted houses, mysterious murders, and stalkers. Sure, it’s not quite spooky season yet, but these standout reads will have you cozying up with a warm blanket and a mug of hot cocoa anyway. And hey, if you’re not quite ready to go straight for the scares, this month’s best books also include a novel about a teen chasing his dreams, a beautiful story about two teens bonding on a snowy night, and a pandemic-set read that will actually make you swoon. Need even more suggestions? Don’t forget to check out the best YA books of August, too.
