Horror Reviewers

An Easy Guide to Locating Horror Reviews Without Losing Your Mind

Are you a reader looking for scary book recommendations? Are you an author needing some reviews but money is tight and you can't afford a PR team? Well, look no further than this list right here. These are the people you need to know. They live and breathe horror and LOVE to talk about it all over the internet.

Please know that this list is a work in progress. I will be adding more names and social media links as they are submitted. If you find an active blog/booktube/bookstagrammer that reviews horror fiction regularly (at least 50% horror fiction) please let me know with a link to the blog/website in the comments. My end game is to include every active horror fiction reviewer in our community but I cannot do this without your help. Feel free to share this post but please credit me as the originator of the list. I will also be checking it every month or so to remove inactive blogs and those who have switched their focus from horror to other genres. If you do not review at least one true horror novel a month you will be removed from the list. If I have to dig for pages to find a horror review you will not be put on the list. If you decide in the future to cover horror fiction regularly and want to be put back on the list please leave a comment. 

Readers: If you do not want to be included here please let me know in the comments. If you'd like to be on the list please leave your social media links in the comments. Also let me know which category you prefer to be listed under. I had to guess on a few of you with multiple platforms. If you spot an error please let me know in the comments. Please do not sign up if you only read horror during October.

Authors: These are all active reader/reviewers but some may be "booked up" with tbr piles at the moment. You will have to review their individual review policies to see if they're currently accepting books to review.

If you discover a reviewer on this list is charging for reviews please contact me ASAP and they will be removed. This list is comprised of people who love the genre, not for those trying to make a buck off of reading.

It's such a great time to be a horror fiction fan, right?! If you haven't ventured over to Twitter, Booktube or Instagram or even the vast land of blogging, what the heck are you waiting for? All of these communities add so much enthusiasm and fun to the horror world. Now kiss your free time goodbye and start clicking!

  1. This is a wonderful resource and I am thrilled to be included :)

  2. What a great resource! Thanks for compiling this.

    1. You're very welcome. Share with every horror reader you know :)

  3. This is outstanding, Laurie. You rock! The only thing that's notably absent to me is HorrorTalk. If you want it, this is their staff page with all their reviewer contacts on it: https://www.horrortalk.com/staff/staff/


    1. Thank you, Shane. If you spot anyone else that belongs on the list please let me know. This is going to be a WIP forever :)

  4. Everybody, I am going to delete comments regarding changes to the list as I finish tasks to make life easier on myself. Thank you all so very much for your additions/corrections and please keep them coming!

  5. Would it be possible to be added? :O such an awesome resource!

    Www.pandoras-shelf.com (I only review horror manga :) Still fairly new but a work in progress~)

    1. At this time, I'm only including horror novel/fiction reviewers. If you add horror fiction reviews along with horror manga to your site please let me know.

  6. I did try and leave a comment but I don’t know if it worked!
    I’m a book reviewer with a focus on horror with some essays on Splatterpunk and the gothic :) I would love to be added to this list of awesome people!
    My blog is:


  7. I’d love to be included! I love & review horror, mostly on Goodreads and my Bookstagram. My Bookstagram is CodysBookshelf. :) I’m also a Nightworm!

    1. You're on, thanks for submitting your info, Cody :)

  8. You can add me as well. www.sinfullywickedbookreviews.com

  9. Dearest Mr Barks:

    By Jove, lass, you’ve done it again!

    Much thanks from all of us who are too damned lazy to do this ourselves.


    The World

    1. lol, I'm pretty damned lazy myself. I'm not quite sure how this happened. But I'm glad it did.

  10. What a great idea. If you are still adding blogs I mostly read horror https://wellwortharead.blogspot.com/

  11. Add me :) I review for Screamfix and can be contacted via screamfix.com/author/drawing-in-dark

  12. Would you please remove my site, The Scary Reviews. I am no longer taking requests for book reviews. Thank you so much.
