spooky-houseThe best way to serve some revenge to a friend who has wronged you? Recommend to them the scariest, most spine-chilling, spooky book to read and then watch them shake in their boots! (Or sneakers. Or flip-flops. Or any kind of footwear, really).

Check out some great book reviews from kids who read these spooky tales and lived to tell us about it!

He is very curious about the blood stain. the next night Kenny sees a ghost feeling his way around the attic. Kenny is very scared Kenny asked the ghost what his name was and the ghost replied “Kaleb”. Kenny asked Kaleb if he needed help and Kaleb said help me find my killer.

this book is called All the Lovely Bad Ones. Mary Downing Hahn wrote this book. this book is a non ficttion but seems so real. this book is about people who move into a haunted bed and breakfast house. after a couple of days they start to notice some really weird things going on in the house. the people dont know whats going on but they mightve just woken up the evil spirits in the house. my favorite part is when the kids find gravestones around a hanging tree and then see the most evil spirit of them all. i would recommend this book to anyone who like ghost and adventure and mystery books.

Loved this book. It gave me more information on the Salem witch trials even though it is a fiction book. So if you’re interested in the witch trials this would be a book for you. Starts out all inocent and sweet at a carnival with a fortune teller, then becomes much worse. Lots of suspense, great book. A must read in my opinion.
