We’re so excited to be celebrating Women in Horror Month in March this year, and each year moving forward! For the entire month, we’ll be hosting a readathon and we’d love you to join us in reading some fantastic women writing horror fiction.
Below we’ve included some recommendations for the month, but don’t feel limited to just these great reads! We’d love to see and hear about what you’ll be reading for WiHM, so make sure to use the #LOHFREADATHON hashtag on social media – we’ll see them on Twitter and Instagram, and will be resharing some to our stories throughout the month.
