If you like The Girlfriend, by R.L. Stine for its horror, suspense, and descriptive writing, you may like these books:
A Ghost In The Family,by Betty Ren Wright.
While visiting his friend Jeannie's eccentric Aunt Rosebud in a boarding house that may be haunted, ten-year-old Chad comes across a mystery involving a missing diamond bracelet.
Coraline by Neil Gaiman, illustratedbyDave McKean.
Looking for excitement, Coraline ventures through a mysterious door into a world that is similar, yet disturbingly different from her own, where she must challenge a gruesome entity in order to save herself, her parents, and the souls of three others. This is a really popular book - and definitely creepy!
The Boyfriend, by R.L. Stine.
A spurned ex-boyfriend comes back from the grave to haunt the girl who broke up with him. This is another book from the same Horror Point series as The Girlfriend, so this should be right up your alley!
The Lost Mind, by Christopher Pike.
She didn't know what she had done. She awoke in the woods beside a dead body with a knife in her hand and blood on her clothes. Had she killed the young woman beside her? She couldn't remember remember anything--not even her own name. It was as if someone had stolen her mind--stolen her soul. Christopher Pike writes very much like R.L. Stine, and is a great choice if you’re into series books, as he has written a lot!
The Gourmet Zombie, by Paul Zindel.
The famous chefs of New York are dropping like flies--but P.C. and Mac notice a connection. Will there be anyone left to cater their joint 16th birthday party bash? This is part of the P.C. Hawke mysteries series that you might enjoy.
