My ds is 10 and a reluctant reader. He's really into scary books. He has enjoyed Goosebumps in the past but finds them formulaic and tame and is currently in the midst of devouring the horror books by Anthony Horowitz. Can anyone recommend similar books?

Have you tried the Darren Shan ones? ds loved them at that age.

No we haven't. I will have a look on Amazon now.

I'd advise you to visit www.thetruthaboutbooks.com.

They have a really useful parents section where you can find books for children of all ages with good, honest reviews. I'm sure you'll find something suitable for him there.

Good luck.
