Creepy and Scary Books for Tween Girls

by Janet21

Vampires. Ghosts. Devils. Supernatural Powers. This page features a great selection of wonderfully creepy books for tween girls age 8-12.

My 10 year old daughter reads the creepy and scary books I have featured on this page and she loves them! She began reading these books about a year ago starting with the My Sister The Vampire series. She enjoyed those books so much that we found other series that had similar dark and scary themes and she enjoyed those books as well. She has even loaned some of these books out to her friends and they have liked them, too. My daughter is not a Goth girl or anything, but she does like wearing skull t-shirts and she had a Pink Skull Party for her 9th birthday. So, maybe she does have a bit of darkness in her somewhere.

The children's book series on this page include My Sister The Vampire, Bedeviled, Supernatural, Poison Apple, Creepover and Monster High. If your daughter enjoys this genre as well and is too young for books such as Twilight, I highly recommend these books for girls age 8-12.

Vampire Books

Find out what happens when you discover that your twin sister is actually a vampire!

My Sister The Vampire books are written by Sienna Mercer.   There are currently seven great books in this series including:

  • Switched
  • Fangtastic
  • Re-Vamped
  • Vampalicious
  • Lucky Break
  • Take Two
  • Love Bites. 

This book series is based on long lost twins Olivia and Ivy.  Olivia and Ivy are identical twins.  Olivia is a cheerleader while Ivy is pale and dresses in all black.  They decide to switch places and Olivia soon discovers that Ivy is really a vampire.   Not only that, she is not the only vampire in town!

This book series follows Olivia and Ivy's creepy, vampire adventures as trouble begins and truths are exposed.


My Daddy is a Devil

What would you do if you found out that your Dad was really a Devil?

The Bedeviled book series is written by Shani Petroff.   There are four books in this series including Daddy's Little Angel, Love Struck, Careful What You Wish For and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly Dress.  My daughter has read them all and I think this series ended up being her favorite.  I even contacted the author to see if she has plans to write more books in this series.

The plot of these books centers around a girl named Angel who finds out that her Dad is really a Devil.   He wants to be a part of her life again and offers to use his special powers to give her anything she wants.  Does she accept his offer and sell her soul to the Devil?    And, what happens when she finds out that she has Devil powers, too?

Are You Ready for a Creepover?

these books combine the fun of sleepovers with the thrill of scary stories
