Hello, Readers! This week we're sharing a few scary stories to add to the spookiness of October. Grab a mug of steaming hot cider, sink into a cozy chair, and fall into a story.

Lewis Barnavelt couldn't have prepared for life at 100 High Street in New Zebedee, Michigan. After losing his parents in a tragic car accident he was taken in by his eccentric Uncle Jonathan, whose mysterious three story stone mansion would be his home. Even though he's nervous, Lewis is excited to explore the interesting rooms and fancy parlors. But when strange occurrences start happening, he isn't sure what to think.


"Lewis shows that he can be brave in the face of chaos and uses his knowledge of stories to try to save the world from being destroyed by dark magic. I would recommend this book to readers ages eight and up or anyone who enjoys reading from the edge of their seat."

Juniper Berry lives a very lonely life. Her parents are famous actors and keep her secluded from the outside world. Although there are constantly fans at their gate trying to get in, the only people Juniper gets to talk to are her tutors and people who work in her home. 




"I must say the cover first drew me to this book, but the interesting storyline kept me reading. October is the perfect month to huddle under your covers with a book that will make your heart race with fright."

Tragedy struck Nobody Owens' family when he was just a baby. In a twist of fate, he had managed to escape certain death. Unknowingly, he then crawled right into another kind. Now, behind lonely gates of an old cemetery is where he calls home. He spends his days and nights with his ghostly family among rows of headstones. Although, growing up in a cemetery does have its advantages.


"The story captivates throughout, feeding your need to find out what happens next. I would recommend this book to kids in 5th grade and up. It has certain scary elements to it, but they add to the quirky flavor of this peculiar story."
