In A Glass Grimmly, by Adam Gidwitz

All Hallow's Read!
Give a book for Halloween!
Spooky elements: Creepy retold fairy tales, creepy made-up fairy tales, frightening sea creatures, bone collections. Also: there's lots of vomit and entrails and it is pretty gross.
Good for: Kids-and-up fans of scary, spooky, gory fairy tales. While the story didn't resonate with me the way A Tale Dark and Grimm did, for adolescents going through the struggle of creating their own identities, it may be an even better fit.
